If you don’t know or haven’t heard a play-by-play call from Gus Johnson, then you’ve probably been living under a rock. In today’s world of TV announcers, Johnson might just be the best when it comes to big time plays. One second you’re sitting quietly in the house and the bam, a play breaks out that gets Gus Johnson sounding like he’s calling the biggest play in modern sports history.
Take today for instance, as Johnson was on the call for the Notre Dame vs Wisconsin game from Soldier Field. The Irish were down 13-10 near the start of the 4th quarter, as Chris Tyree handled the kickoff return. Just as he hit the hole that was opened up by his Irish teammates, Johnson starting hitting his stride on the play call.
You can’t tell me this didn’t get you jacked up for college football, no matter what team you cheer for, besides Wisconsin.

Whether it’s the NCAA Tournament, the NFL or a meaningless college football game on a Saturday afternoon (Not talking about this one), you can bet Gus Johnson will have you entertained.
Lets just be thankful that FOX has Gus Johnson on the call. But honestly, I’d like to start a petition to have him signed on to call SEC games, where it just means more, as they say.
