Was frustrating as hell to listen to a guy who should know tOSU football program call JT Barrett "Bare-ett" when the kids name is pronounced "beret" - silent t. Really? The PA guy doesnt know how to pronounce a Quarterbacks name?

But was even worse was his calling Jalin Marshall "Jevont'e Hunter " ALL  FRICKIN DAY -  there isn't even a Jevont'e Hunter ON THE ROSTER!!

That explains that (thanks Loveit) but can someone refresh my memory as to why Marshall didn't play?  I think it was due to injury but I can't recall the particulars.  TIA.

Torn meniscus about five-ish weeks ago, injury usually takes six-ish weeks to heal.

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

Marshall tore his meniscus and had surgery to repair it should be good soon. He was only scheduled to be out for spring practice.

I always thought it was Bare-ett? That's is what everyone pronounces it and it's not listed in the pronunciation guide.

Yeah same. I have a cousin who spells his name the same and pronounces it as you say. Does the OP have anywhere where they pronounce it like a piece of French headgear?

I've never heard it said like OP.  I always thought it was pronounced like the gun.

I'm no master of the spelling bee but i'm pretty sure that if the word ends with two t's then it is not silent in most cases. His name could be different but i'm just throwing that out there.

In English yes but French does have some funky pronunciations. That said I've only heard him referred to as Bare-ett.

Football is complicated...

I want to know what the guy that thought the PA guy at the Spring Game was drinking was drinking.
