High Five to Manny Watkins
« on: November 17, 2017, 09:21:24 pm »

Watched the game on ESPN3 and I was super impressed with Manny Watkins on the color commentary. Who knew? I think he has a career in front of him.

Agree, and he did not come across as a homer. He did a great job.

As good as any I have seen/heard in a long time. With a little experience he may be working at the national level before we know it.

Agreed! And the Play by play guy may be selling cars

I also thought he did well for a rookie.  What is he doing now besides this?  I think he could make a career of it if he wants to.

I think that's the plan right? I mean him and Pat Bradley working for SECN? That bodes well for us IMO.

We typically are very harsh in our judgement of former Hogs gone media dude.  I am glad to see all the positive comments.

Manny has done a great job in the games he has worked this year.  He really sounds better than many who have been doing it for years.

Now that sideline girl....that is a different issue

I didn't know he was working a steady gig for SEC network.  I thought this was a one off deal for the Hog game.

Depends, if he's working the team broadcast I expect the color guy to be somewhat of a homer.  If it's just a network broadcast I expect non-bias, but really when have you ever heard a non-biased broadcast?

Last night I was listening on the way home and the play by play guy was saying "coach" who was that?  I was thinking it was the coach that Scotty replaced.

Might have been, I know it wasn't Manny I heard him and I agree he's pretty good.

I thought he did a great job, regardless, but he was incredible for having virtually zero experience. He's a natural, and I hope he sticks with it.
