    Another great Southern FB radio voice goes silent......(links)

    For those of us OldeFarTekkers who grew up listening to Jack Hurst and Big Al call our games, Ed Thilenius over at the cesspool before Larry WhatHisName, Cawood Ledford at WHAS for Kentucky and John Ferguson on WWL in NOLA doing the LSU night games, John Ward with UT was a classic. He was a homer, but a very low key, matter of fact announcer. He may have been the announcer for the hated "Big Urnge," but he let the events speak for themselves.

    I've told this before, but I was 12 and in the north stands. When Don Toner caught that tipped ball it was the loudest stadium I have ever been in. And that includes 6-0 against Georgia in 1969, the 1990 Citrus Bowl , the 1966 6-3 against Tennessee. A vivid memory. I was a lucky kid, and a lucky guy.
