Other - Ian Darke or just about any other announcer who calls EPL games. Their commentary is smart and to the point, with a witty joke here and there, and in general would make American football announcing tolerable. They are the complete antithesis of Jon "NOW THAT WAS A FOOTBALL PLAY" Gruden and his ilk.

The poll says "dream", so I assumed we could bring Jackson out of retirement or even back from the dead if necessary.

"Who would be the first guy you'd pick for your college commentator dream team?"

Where the eff does it say anything about retirement disqualifying someone from a dream team?

Isn't the whole point of a "dream team" to remove barriers such as death, retirement, and other roadblocks life creates to prevent the creation of an actual team?

Wayne Gretzky - oh wait, he's retired, he can't be on my dream team...wtf?????

Hahaha, fine.

You could call it the "All Star Team" rather than "Dream Team." That would imply ACTIVE announcers.

/just sayin ;)

Todd Blackledge is by far the most underrated announcer

I despise Musburger. Maybe it is his name, but every time I see him I think of this awful Chevy Chase movie, Nothing But Trouble, and Dan Akroyd's weirdo character therein.

Here is Musburger eating a hot dog:

How about a poll for the worst announcers...we've had a few of those lately.  Chris Martin, Bob Greise and Dan Fouts would be among those I hate...

I used to turn the TV down and listen to Keels and Lachey on the fan....
