Love him or hate him...or just tolerate him, the 74-year old Brent Musburger has been one of the quintessential voices of sports broadcasting for the better part of the last 40 years. Starting out at CBS in the mid-70's, he was the Jim Nantz of that studio shows, calling NFL games, the Masters, the World Series, horse races and March Madness. 

In 1990, he was fired from CBS, moved on to ABC Sports/ESPN where he would make his mark as a college football play-by-play announcer. From 2006-2013 he called the primetime Saturday Night Football broadcast for ABC as well as the BCS title games from 2010-14.

He also called his fair share of memorable Michigan moments, including...
Notre Dame 2011:

Virginia 1995:
Notre Dame 1991:
But the Musburger era is coming to an least it is for everyone except fans of the SEC. Beginning next season, Brent has been demoted to will lead up ESPN's new SEC Network along with Jesse Palmer as their lead team, and will no longer call the Saturday ABC primetime games or the national title games. I'm totally fine with this, but I have to ask – Can't you take Kirk with you?

Before we let Brent sail off into SEC-land, we can never forget these wonderful Brent moments.
