Verne Lundquist Calls Replay As Though It's Live Action

Poor, old Uncle Verne must feel like he's in Groundhog Day. On second-and-four, LSU ran a quick pitch to Jeremy Hill for a loss of two yards. LSU was also penalized for illegal formation. The penalty was declined, setting up a third-and-six. Once everything was settled, CBS showed a replay of the play and Lundquist chimes in, attempting to provide play-by-play for the exact same play he just got finished calling. "Third down, six" Verne says. He continues, "Toss, Hill. [uncomfortable silence that probably felt like six years for Gary Danielson] Ha! now we're back live."
