Like Tim Beckman before him, ol' Verne Lundquist is having trouble with Darron Lee's name.

Unce Verne has been terrible today, and Darron Lee's mom, Candice, is fed up.

It's like Darren from Bewitchedpeople. Get it right or pay the price.

They use Verne to make Danielson look good.

Maybe we should call Verne,  Verny

You know.. I don't really care one way or the other how his mom wants his name to be pronounced.  But if she wanted it to be pronounced like Darren.. Then she should have spelled it that way.  Smdh. :/

I prefer to just call him.. Gooood

If you want it pronounced like Darren, then spell it like Darren.  Otherwise, you just have to accept that people will actually try to pronounce it like it is spelled.

I echo your sentiments.  Lol

I get what your saying. But as a broadcast "professional", he should still get it right.

So, how do you pronounce the name, 'Sharon'?

Verne and Gary stumbled all over themselves the entire game.  It was ugly to listen to. My favorite: "...and they will be charged with a timeout there..." after Navy calls a timeout.

Some of my personal faves from today's game:

1. "OSU has had great players for...30 years."  (Uhhh. 30 years, huh? That's it?)

2. "Ohio State hasn't gone without a TD in the 1st half since October of 1911."

3. "Navy's Defense was ranked 80th in the NFL last season."

Come on, now. Sniffing one team's jock so heavily is bound to cause some disorientation.

It's bad when I find myself wishing Beth Mowins and Joey Galloway were the announcers.

They have the pronunciation of all the players in the friggin media guides.  Didn't do the research.

Look, give Verne some credit. He has a difficult enough time remembering to put his pants on each morning. So, pronouncing a kid's name is an awful lot to ask of him.

I didnt watch the whole game but it looked like Lee was making some plays. Not bad for a former high school running qb.

And then I told her...i'm no weatherman, but tonight's forecast is calling for several inches!

Lee was also an outstanding safety in H.S.

and now after gaining 30lbs from the 'Marotti Treatment,' he is an outstanding LB.

And it was the first time since 1911 that the Buckeyes have been held without a TD in the first half -- heard it from Verne, it must be true.

Never put off 'til tomorrow what you can put off indefinitely.

Verne hit his prime during Happy Gilmore 20 years ago.  

If DL continues to play like he did today, in another 2-3 games every announcer will be pronouncing his name correctly (regardless of spelling).

Maybe she should have spelled it with an e instead of an o, just sayin.

Defense was suspect at times, but overall a pretty good outing. Lots of talent on both sides of the ball. At least good ole Verne and Gary got that right.

Verne and Garwy have sucked for some time now.  Garwy was actually a good announcer at one time.

Verne or Gary have never really had a "prime" per say. They are pretty consistently bad.

I was able to stomach about 6 minutes of Verne and Gary.  Then I went into the garage and listened to the game on the radio...SO MUCH BETTER!!!!!

Don't worry Ms. Lee, half of the things that Verne says are wrong.

Most bias broadcast I've ever heard.  If Ohio State did something right, the comment would be followed with a but.  I understand the network underdog mentality and a service academy, BUT.......

I heard the ESPN wonks pronouncing his name the same way as Verne Lundquist did later on in the evening.  Weak.  Very weak.
