RIP Keith Jackson. My memories of the Rose Bowl will always include him.

I liked his broadcasting. Thought it was the best in many sports. He was a Washington State Alum but when he broadcast with his staccato emphasis, he never seemed biased. Current broadcasters should study Keith Jackson.
Andy, Barney, Aunt Bea, Helen, Ellie, Peggy, or Thelma Lou, Gomer, Goober, Howard and even Ernest T. Bass were all single. Only Otis was married and he stayed drunk all the time.

Keith Jackson grew up a handful of miles from one of my ancestral family's places in Georgia (My GG grandmother's family was from Carrollton)...but he did not have that distinctive regional accent.

He joins a cast of memories that the young ones will never know...the greats...Howard Cosell, Dandy Don Meredith, Frank Gifford.....and all to soon in the future, Lee Corso.

I remember watching a documentary on how he was kicked off the Monday night football team. And I think it had to do with his accent. But even though he kinda got screwed over, in the end it worked out for him.

He was my favorite. Even when my team lost.

Whoooooooa, Nelly!!

Keith Jackson was for a great time, THE voice of College Football. No one has since brought the style and class to commentary quite the in the same manner. A true gentleman, on & off of the airways.

Kieth inspired generations with his enthusiasm and articulation of play by play finesse.

There was no better, and likely will not be another comparable to him again.

RIP to the Voice

Condolences to the family and Loved ones.
