Goodbye, Nellie

Even though he's leaving the booth after 53 years, Keith Jackson remains the voice of college football, and as a fan of the game, I'll be sad to see him go. Fittingly, the last game he called was 1) the Granddaddy of Them All, 2) played for the national championship, and 3) one of the greatest I've ever seen.

Don't worry about Jackson, though. He has great retirement plans: "I aspire to be the shop steward of the international porch sitters union. I think that would be a noble profession and a timely one."
