And The Dream Becomes Kind Of A Dream
It's not what America wanted, but he's at least back in our lives, even if it will only be at 10 PM on a Saturday night or in Manhattan, Kansas in the middle of the afternoon. Gus Johnson came to terms with Fox on Tuesday, meaning he'll call Pac 10/12, Big 12, and CUSA football games this season. He'll be paired with Charles Davis, who you may remember from those dark years when Fox, which broadcast no regular season football games, but had some of the most important college football games of the year (Sugar, Orange, and Fiesta Bowls, assuming those exhibition games can be called important, and the national championship game).
The Johnson/Davis duo will be Fox's number one college football announcing team, which, while it will be great to have some live Gus, isn't as impressive as it sounds considering Fox's previous number one team was an old mop and slop bucket. Here's to Gus spending a few years with the dirty hippies of the West Coast, strangling Charles Davis after hearing, "Man, Andrew Luck is a GREAT quarterback" for the 8,492th time in 20 minutes, and being rewarded with Uncle Verne's microphone when it's time for Uncle Verne to do whatever it is he does when he's not donning the crisp CBS blazer.
