Found November 07, 2011 on Awful Announcing:


Happy Halloween!  I'm wondering if Craig James and Pam Ward disguised themselves as good announcers because it was unusually quiet for them with this week's nominees as some new announcers come back into the Pammies picture.  Gary Danielson and Matt Millen will look to catch up with Darth James and make this a race for the Pammies title as we move into November.

As a reminder as to how the Pammy vote works, each week we'll nominate 15-20 quotes for you to pick the best 10.  The winning quote of the week will earn that person 10 points all the way down to 1 point for 10th.  Remember, you can vote for your favorite five quotes.  Here are your Week 10 nominees...

1) "Jimbo Fisher knows how to get QBs ready for the NFL; when he was at LSU, he had JaMarcus Russell 1st Overall" - Jesse Palmer (via AlexFromBuffalo) Yup, that's a positive reference about JaMarcus Russell's NFL career.

2) "Worley may have pulled out too soon." - Tim Couch (via sctvman)

3) "You can throw or run here, those are your options" - Gary Danielson (via sctvman)

4) "This is probably exactly what the Wisconsin coaching staff wanted to see today. After those two heartbreaking defeats, you come back and you just explode all over somebody." - Mike Patrick (via DevsFan30)

5) Regarding the earthquake that took place in Oklahoma at 2:12 AM...

Kirk Herbsteit: "Did you feel anything?"
Brent Musburger: "It might have been last call" (via Chris Schenkel)

11) Rece Davis: "What would you tell kids to do in that situation?"
Craig James: "Don't watch SportsCenter" (via sctvman)

12) "  And   gets bent over backwards!" - Pam Ward (via DevsCuse44)

15) "Who had 6-6 for a final?" - Verne Lundquist (via Dascenzo) No one. They have invented overtime.
