Yeah but they didn't have the Daves.
You should dress as the love child of Junior Samples and Data.
So, your normal look.
speaking of, how did that dean guy weasel his way on to the SEC Network basketball broadcast group? that guy is awful. i cringe every time i hear him say "playing some string music".
Thats Joe Dean Jr giving props to his dad with that phrase. His dad was a commentator for years then became the AD at LSU. Here's a brief wiki page on his dad:Broadcasting:Dean is most famous for his work as a color analyst for Southeastern Conference basketball games, which he covered for 18 years. He coined the phrase "String Music" and is also known for other phrases such as, "Stufferino" and "Lexington, K-Y." During his run, he worked with NBC, TBS, ESPN, TVS, Lorimar and Jefferson Pilot.AD:Dean gave up announcing in April 1987, when he took over the athletic director post at his alma mater, LSU. He served from April 1987 through the end of the 2000 calendar year, with the LSU's 2000 Peach Bowl victory over Georgia Tech being his last official event as athletic director. During his tenure, Dean oversaw arguably the greatest athletic era in school history. The LSU baseball team won five national championships (1991, 1993, 1996, 1997, 2000) while the men's and women's track teams accounted for 22 national championships combined, including a record 11-consecutive NCAA Outdoor Track and Field championships by the women's team. At the time of his retirement, the 27 national championships under Dean's guidance were an SEC record.The LSU football team won one SEC Championship (1988), two SEC Western Division Championships (1996, 1997) and four bowl victories (1995, 1996, 1997, 2000) in his 14 years. Among Dean's final major decisions at the helm of the athletic department was along with LSU Chancellor Mark Emmert to hire Nick Saban as football coach.Personal side note: At Barnhill in '92 (the Shaq OT game) AD Dean sat 3 seats down from us..why I don't know as we were in the student section. Anyway, he wasn't too happy with no foul being called on Big O against Shaq in final play of regulation. When Day made the 'and-1' in OT and the place exploded as it never had before (in my presence at least) we mighta got in his face and taunted him a bit too much. Fast forward to Nov 2003 and my wife and I port back in NOLA from our honeymoon cruise. As we are waiting for our flight at the airport I see Joe Dean walking towards us. He acknowledged me and briefly asked how I was doing then headed on to his destination. When my wife asked me who that was I told her the story. Hard to believe he'd remember some punk kid like me taunting him at Barnhill 11 years prior but I think he did as he had a grin/smirk on his face as we briefly spoke.
Tom Hammond and Joe Dean were the voices of SEC basketball for many years. I'd take Dean over Larry Conley every day.
I still remember the cartoon introduction at the start of the broadcast.
Where does Cliff Ellis and sharing the sugar rate?
I was reminiscing about my earliest recollections SEC basketball back in the olden days, late 70s-early 80s. Channel 5 out of Memphis showed the SEC package with Hammond and Dean. If atmospheric conditions were right, I could pick up the SWC game on KARK. IIRC Frank Fallon did the pbp.
Frank Fallon and Dan Spika. Couldn't stand those texass-loving fuckers.
Never met Junior Samples but, met the Hagar twins. Nice guys and you could tell they were brothers.
