Legendary college football announcer Keith Jackson died Friday at 89.

Jackson died “surrounded by his family,” NBC Sports’ Todd Harris reported.

Jackson, who began his broadcasting career in 1952, was best known for his longtime stint on ABC Sports, ESPN reported. He began working at ABC in 1966 until 2006 when he retired and called his last game, the Bowl Championship Series game between the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Southern California.

Rest In Peace!

The voice of college football.  One of the best, if the best.

His voice and use of language was perfect.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.


As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
