Verne Lundquist: CBS Sports

 

Yes sir! This episode features an interview with a guy I grew up idolizing. Verne Lundquist was always one of those voices you could count on for a big sporting event. From The Masters, to the NCAA Tournament, and college football – Verne was there for it all. Following the release of his book Play by Play: Calling the Wildest Games in Sports – From SEC Football to College Basketball, The Masters, and More, we talk about a lot of these topics and his connections to Connecticut.

You’ve heard him call some of UConn’s most memorable games, Bubba Watson’s first PGA Tour win at the Travelers Championship, and many other memorable sports moments. I’ve put some of my favorite Verne calls below. Let me know what your favorite Verne moments are.
