I wonder if Mayock is going to ask Theismann if he can borrow those DVDs..

Edit: oops, I spelled Theismann wrong in the title

I was ok with Millen and still think he's a solid announcer. Theisman has always been absolutely dreadful.

Mayock is the shiz.

Mayock's easily my favorite guy to hear talk about football. Was so unfortunate last year when he got laryngitis during last years draft.

Mayock is awesome when he does Vikings preseason games, I could live without Gus Johnson though.

this combo is going to be an epic win. Kind of like eating a steak while banging a girl and her mom at the same time.

This would be the ultimate teamup.

This isn't gonna take Gus Johnson off CBS is it? I mean its a rareity I get his game on CBS cuz of lame ass regional coverage and always seem to get the Nantz and Gumbel games. But two Gus Johnson games in a week? If I met a chick that orgasms like Gus Johnson announcing sports, I'll be set for life.

This.

Although sometimes Mayock is a little uptight for my liking. Guess what Mike, Rich Eisen is f**king sweet, and if he wants to go off on tangents during the Scouting Combine coverage, you deal with it; quit complaining about "getting back to the football."

The guy is awful, I don't understand why so many people like him. He's like a hybrid of John Madden and Dick Vitale except he doesn't know jack **** about sports. He is also horrendous when he does commentary for mma, every time he opens his mouth I cringe.

thank god Millen and Thiesman are gone, arguably the two worst announcers last year.

Bob Papa got screwed since he had to work with the garbage known as Millen and Theisman.

Also, I didn't really like Mayock when he was doing ND games last year. Maybe it's just me though.

You shut your whorish face about Gus Johnson!

This is a place of welcoming. And FuzzyGopher should just get the hell out!

Fuzzy has somewhat of a good point. He does make mistakes all the time. I still like him though.

Find me an announcer or commentator that isn't always making mistakes these days. Gus Johnson is loved for his genuine enthusiasm and great lines.

I absolutely loved him doing ND games. Youd get a scouting report on every player on the field! lol

You're brave, he is some sort of legend with folks in here. I get a kick out of Gus doing college basketball as long as him and i are rooting for the same team.

There's a difference between making one mistake or many during the course of the game. It also helps when you know some strategy of the game you're calling which Johnson also lacks sometimes.

I can't explain what it was but maybe he just talked to much? I feel like he didn't shut up for the entire 60 mins which gets quite annoying.

Amazing.

NFLN broadcasts have gone from terrible to great just with these hires.

Bamp for news.

Thank god for no Gus Johnson, Nessler's voice gets me excited.

I love Nessler. Best ESPN college football broadcaster by a wide margin. He and Mayock should be great on NFL network.

Nessler>>>>>Johnson. Only the ADHD kids think otherwise. You don't have to scream to make a point, and Nessler is as smooth as they come.

Nessler is great. Plus born in Winona County, Minnesota. REPRESENT! A great decision by NFLN. Yeah, I love Gus, but Nessler is phenomanal.

Gus Johnson is incredibly annoying for anything other than highlights. Hearing him announce an entire game or a fight makes me reach for the mute button.

Unfortunately thanks to Bill Simmons, liking Gus Johnson has become trendy.

Nessler and Mayock should be a good combo.
