Thread: LSU hires Georgia Southern announcer Chris Blair 2015

  1. Default LSU hires Georgia Southern announcer Chris Blair 2015

    LSU hires Georgia Southern announcer Chris Blair:
    I wonder how Chris is going to feel when he would normally say "Put a Eagle 6 on it, TOUCH DOWN GEORGIA SOUTHERN".

    It would be cool to have Chris Blair announce before the kickoff "Welcome Eagle Nation to Tiger Stadium, Hail Southern".

    From what I've seen on social media Chris still follows us and our success.
    No longer eating crow for saying "The TO is gone get over it!!"

    I wouldn’t count on the old catchphrase coming out, but I can tell you that he definitely keeps up with a lot of people from GS and will be pulling for us in at least 11 games this season.

    Yep, our media guys are still close with him. In fact, they all have been looking forward to this game and getting together for a very long time now.

    Yep.

    Not to mention the night before the game is Danny Reed's Birthday, the day of the game is Chris's, and I'm pretty sure But Frank's is earlier in the week

    Chris lived in the Boro for 10 years and half raised his children here. We're all proud of his accomplishments and he's definitely a homer always will be.

    I would imagine he'll have an extra heart beat or two if we can play solid.

    He also knows like few others that this game could go wrong for LSU which is why I seriously doubt we sneak up on them.

    We're proud of his accomplishments today but on the 31st he's a dang traitor.

    I have no issues with him leaving for LSU. I'd expect ANYONE to do the same thing. I also do not expect him to show any favoritism towards GS before, during, or after this game. That said, I do expect he won't get our name wrong.

    I agree 100%. Nate was True Blue and certainly the original “homer”.

    There's only one Nate. Never be another like him much like Erk.

    Chris had his hands full replacing Nate particularly given the circumstance and no matter how good he was the spit balls were coming.

    I'd say he overcame the naysayer.
