Dave South

I remember writing about Texas A&M sports announcer Dave South decades ago, when
I wrote the sports TV-Radio column for The Dallas Morning News. I just tuned to
the radio pre-game coverage of the Auburn-A&M game and caught South's set-up for
the SEC matchup. I must say, South's thorough, neutral remarks and comprehensive
statistical rundown struck me as excellent. I was impressed, though I'd wager
that he might grow more emotional and verge on homerish in his play call after
kickoff! Anyway, it was nice to hear a local team sportscaster preview a game in
an informative, non-ridiculously biased fashion.
Saluting South, here (and I'm an LSU fan-mom).
