Who said that?


Nov 17, 2021, 1:27 PM

I need a little help from older Tiger fans. As a kid, I listened to games on the radio. I really liked one of the announcers. When Clemson made a great play, he would say "Woo Who Mercy". He also called the QB The Needle because he could thread the ball in a tight spot. Anyone know who the announcer was and who the QB was? Thanks.

Remember the announcer, but not his name. Jimmy Addison was the needle.

because Addison was so skinny. I think he weighed about the same as Hunter Renfrow as a freshman.
