  • Miss. State's Cristil ending long career today

    He's having to abruptly end his 58-year career as Voice of Mississippi State Bulldogs due to health reasons. One of the best and a complete gentleman. End of an era. All the great ones are gone. Nothing but vanilla now. Jack's last game is today in Knoxville, and we have plans to honor him before the game. ... roon-White

    In the SEC, we've gone from...

    Cawood Ledford to Tom Leach at Kentucky
    John Forney to Eli Gold at Bama
    Larry Munson to Scott Howard at Georgia
    John Ward to Bob Kesling at Tennessee
    Otis Boggs to Mick Hubert at Florida
    Stan Torgerson to David Kellum at Ole Miss
    At former SEC school Georgia Tech...Al Ciraldo ("Toe Meets Leather") to Wes Durham
    And now we lose Jack Cristil, who is from Memphis, Tennessee BTW

    The old guys were so much better. Not just more colorful, but better, too.

    Above is link to Jack Cristil making announcement of his retirement. Such a gentleman and a nice guy. His last game was in Knoxville and before they beat us, we honored him during a ceremony that featured our former radio broadcaster, John Ward, and athletic department veteran Gus Manning, who was hired at UT by General Robert Neyland.
