Verne and Gary's Not-So-Excellent Adventure

If you're like me, you may have found the announcing during yesterday's SEC Championship Game to be....underwhelming. Here's a compilation of Verne Lundquist and Gary Danielson's greatest moments of confusion, obfuscation and outright lies.

To be fair to Lundquist and Danielson, they did notice and correct many of their errors yesterday—which is more than you can say for a lot of announcers—although viewers may have been left to wonder if the pair was watching the game on a fuzzy black-and-white TV in the rec room of their assisted living home. There were several bad calls, missed assignments, questionable math, a few discrepancies regarding who was actually on the field, I'm pretty sure Verne mispronounced the sideline reporter's name more than once, and Mr. Inside and Mr. Outside did, in fact, play for Army.

The turtle crack was also ill-advised, however, you have to forgive the boys for clowning on a dude who lost a football throwing competition to a girl. He kind of deserved it, didn't he?
