Stadium and Main: Mike Wallace wants Lloyd gone?

Wednesday, September 06, 2006

Mike Wallace wants Lloyd gone?

When asked about Keith Jackson’s retirement, he said:
"I can't believe the S.O.B. is quitting. It doesn't make any sense, Keith hanging up his microphone. Come on, he's just a boy. I haven't completely retired, so where does he get off?

Seriously, how will my Wolverines, champions of the West, play if Keith Jackson isn't there to tell us about it? He transported me back to Ann Arbor like nobody else could. He is college football for me.

It should be [Michigan coach] Lloyd Carr who retires. Lloyd Carr, who when it's third down and we have 25 yards to a first down, fairly consistently calls a run into the line."

Mike Wallace, a longtime reporter for CBS' "60 Minutes," is a 1939 Michigan grad — and proud of it.
Who knew? My favorite part is that instead of saying “when it's 3rd and 25,” he says “when it's third down and we have 25 yards to a first down.” Makes it sounds all proper and British, which is sweet.

Mike Wallace should do a story about Lloyd on 60 Minutes. I'd pay money to see that. In fact, I'd pay A LOT of money.
