College football announcer for decades on ABC Keith Jackson passed away at age 89.

Dick Enberg passed away last month and now it is Keith Jackson. RIP Keith.

Keith Jackson was one of my favorites, for College Football. I am not a Nascar fan, but I remember him doing Stock Car races back in the 60's and 70's. He actually made it interesting! He was one of the best, if not THE best. Great voice.

Keith Jackson had a way of turning a certain well-known phrase into a football memory!

"Whoa, Nellie" was just that!

I'll always miss hearing it from Jackson.

RIP, sir.
