One of the best. 89. R.I.P.
Keith Jackson, the legendary voice of college football, dead at 8
A huge divide between broadcasters at his level of professionalism, quality and even likeability/appeal, and all the rest. He was part of a rare, elite group.
Loved Keith Jackson

Hall of Fame Broadcaster Keith Jackson Dies at 89
Keith Max Jackson explains, "Whoa, Nellie!".
The Voice of College Football.
RIP, Mr. Jackson.
The original play-by-play announcer for Monday Night Football. He was offered the college football post he made famous after he was replaced on MNF by Frank Gifford. Needless to say, wise decisions all the way around!
Growing up, he was college football to me. As far as I knew, college football took four hours, not three; had a halftime show with marching bands; didn't throw the ball much; featured Keith Jackson.
Loved him - RIP Mr. Jackson
Certainly grew up watching sports broadcast by Keith and Dick Enberg. Two legends now gone RIP
Great voice. RIP.
RIP. No more like him.
He and Curt Gowdy were my favorites as a youth....
"Cie Grant was the man who pressured Dorsey. And now the party begins for the Ohio State Buckeyes, they are 14-0."
He also did the wide world of sports.
I've missed him since he retired. He was one of the greats. R.I.P. Keith!
Also baseball, basketball, auto racing, boxing, Olympic swimming and track... he was actually pretty versatile, although there's a reason every obituary of him will mention college football first and foremost. He and Frank Broyles were the best-ever TV duo for that sport by a country mile.
I had an uncle who looked almost exactly like Keith and was nearly the same age. Coincidentally enough, my uncle died just this past September.
There will always be only one college football best.
Rest easy, Mr. Jackson.
One of the best ever.
RIP, Mr. Jackson.
He was to College Football, what Pat Summerall was to the NFL. Grew up listening to both, and miss both.
As a Michigan fan, I'll never forget his 'Hello, Heisman!" call back in 1991 against OSU.
Keith Jackson epitomized everything good about college football. I loved listening to his broadcasts with Frank Broyles.
