Did I miss something?


Honestly, I think Yannity may have asked to

step down. Doing both broadcast on WSPA and Clemson PBP may have been too taxing on him and his family.

Just speculation on my part.

Pete didn't want to step down. Had his hand forced by the AD for some reason.

The AD was asked about it this evening on the radio. It was obvious it wasn't Pete's decision to step down from football.

Still think Munson gets too excited when the other team does something good.

he couldn't show much favoritism to Clemson because of his position with WSPA. I look forward to hearing Munson, hoping he can show some home crowd partiality and excitement when calling the games.

Seems like a great guy, happy for him. Just not that excited about the change. Seems like the same personality type...one of those "put on your fake radio voice" guys. But... it is what it is.

A step back in my opinion, I will listen to video broadcasters for sure now!

Posted: Apr 30, 2014 1:18 PM
 

Agreed, step back for sure. Munson is not fun to listen to, I see a big drop off on radio broadcast. Sounds like a Yankee (no disrespect but it's almost corny) and just doesn't have a good idea of what is going on. Always tries to spin it when he doesn't know what is going on and laugh it off or put the blame on someone else


Sounds like a Yankee?!?


Posted: Apr 30, 2014 6:39 PM
 

I think Don Munson speaks well. It's sad that broadcasters speaking well (which is what they are trained to do) is a problem for some. I guess some of you want a good 'ol boy with a thick Southern drawl. No thanks.

In fact, that's one reason why I don't care for Will Merritt. Not the image of Clemson University I care to portray.

Yeah I like Yannity, and his experience. Wish CU would pay


Posted: Apr 30, 2014 2:42 PM
 

him more or whatever, so there wouldn't be a conflict with WSPA.


I liked Yannity a lot too. He did a great job.


Posted: Apr 30, 2014 6:39 PM
 

I think Munson will do a good job too. Congrats to him on being the new PBP guy.

I'm dissapointed but suspect I'll soon forget about it and it will be no big deal.
I did enjoy Pete Yanity. Thought he handled the job well.


At least Pete was professional***

Can't understand this move at all...

Posted: Apr 30, 2014 2:44 PM
 

I wasn't crazy about Yanity-- hated "There's Orange in the endzone"-- but he was ok. He was a pro and was good on play-by-play. He knew how to interact and interview people as well. They think Munson will do a better job?


Re: Can't understand this move at all...


Posted: Apr 30, 2014 3:04 PM
 

While I think Don is a fine man (met him, have friends that know him) I don't think he is the right choice. Don't care for his voice (a huge part of radio by the way)
I always thought Pete was good.
Course, what do I know, while I respected Jim Philips, I was not a fan at all of his talents in the booth.
Just my opinions....


Pete did a great job.***

Thank you Dan Rad!!!! Who could ever forget...

Posted: Apr 30, 2014 3:03 PM
 

I'm sure I'll miss his colorful and brilliant action-packed description of every play... they were all the same!

I'll never forget this one:
"25, 20, 15, 10, 5, and there's orange in the end zone."

Or this gem:
"Boyd back to pass, it's caught! 15, 10, 5, and there's orange in the end zone.

Or this hall of fame call:
"Interception! 40, 35, 30, 25, 20, 15, (player is already in the end zone celebrating) 10, 5, and there's orange in the end zone!"

Man, those were classics! How will Don ever top those?!?!

Re: Thank you Dan Rad!!!! Who could ever forget...

Posted: Apr 30, 2014 3:07 PM
 

Don will never top them or any others! He is pitiful! I would not have been greatly disappointed to see a change, but this is like hiring an AM radio announcer from a small high school town as a D-1 play by play guy. Very poor decision.


I hope Merritt left with Pete.***

Games are still on the radio? Who knew? ;)


Posted: Apr 30, 2014 3:21 PM
 

I haven't listened to a game on the radio in about 15 years...

> I haven't listened to a game on the radio in about 15
> years...

I LOVE listening to the radio call of the game while watching on TV or even at the game. The radio guys are much better at letting you know what is different about who's in the game or out, who's hurt, what's going on along the sideline, etc.

You will almost never hear a TV guy let you know that Freshman so-and-so just came in the game at cornerback and so "what is wrong with so-and-so" the starter and "Dear Lord can the freshman cover their WR", etc.

Sometimes the radio lets you know exactly why some play worked or didn't work because they are so familiar with the personnel and the plays.

You are really missing a lot of info when not listening to the radio call.

I will say this though....when watching on TV some of my friends watch for my reaction because the radio is often ahead of the TV. Some friends love to know beforehand and some hate it. I like to know beforehand so I can watch the particular spot or player were the action is headed.


Re: Games are still on the radio? Who knew? ;)

You sound like a lot of fun to watch the games with. Do you wear your headphones during the pregame show too? For like the entire six hour pregame show?

I'll be honest, when radio headsets were a bit bigger, say back in the 90's, I looked like a big goober with the big earphones and the big radio on my belt or either those giant radio headphones with the antenna sticking up.

Now I just use my tiny earbuds and a small mp3 that receives a radio signal....much less gooberish.

And no, don't do any pregame radio....that is usually some bad radio.





I'm one of those fans that also like to listen to the game


Posted: May 1, 2014 2:57 AM
 

on the radio while I'm in Death Valley. It gives me a different insight to what is happening during the game. And it enhances my gameday experience. however, I do look kind of strange with my binoculars, radio headset, and Clemson hat.
And yes, ladies, I do have one of my ear buds out so that I can still carry on a conversation with my wife during the game.


Is there really not a Clemson person who could do this job?

[1]
Posted: Apr 30, 2014 4:47 PM
 

A former player, or at least an alumnus, is what we need in the role. Who cares if it's a homer? That's what you want to hear if you're tuning into Clemson radio. Munson is awful on the radio. He's fake, his voice is high-pitched, and he has no genuine passion for Clemson. It is beyond me how he has been able to worm his way into the athletic department like he has. I won't listen to game broadcasts anymore. He adds no value to the athletic department and certainly not to the radio team. Go back to calling junior college games at app state, Don.


Why was the change made?***


Posted: Apr 30, 2014 5:02 PM
 




Now get rid of the other two goobers and we just might start


Posted: Apr 30, 2014 5:09 PM
 

sounding like a big time football program. Will Merritt is terrible and Patrick Sapp sounds like he's spitting out marbles.
By the way, please get a new flagship station!


I agree with this. I think Munson will do a good job.


Posted: Apr 30, 2014 6:43 PM
 

But I also thought Yannity did a great job too. In my opinion, they replaced the one guy who is really good at what he does. I wish they would have replaced Merritt and/or Sapp. They are awful.


Already a "new" flagship station since WCCP is becoming

In a sense, yes. Don and Dabo are close friends, and the only option was to make him the pbp guy.
Unfortunately, the ones that will suffer are Tiger fans and PY!


I wouldn't be shocked


Posted: May 1, 2014 9:45 AM
 

if he gets paid more than Pete did. That's how the good ole boy system works.


Munson is a creep, and isn't a very good pbp guy.

Pete is a wonderful person and a solid radio guy.
Don is a creepy dude and is awful on the radio.
Dabo is making a big mistake here.

This must have been another well planned move by DS and DR. The only way to get Don Munson out of his a$$ is to give him another job that would require his time. Hopefully the suffering for the Clemson fans will be short lived, and Don Munson will also soon part ways with Clemson Athletics. He has to be the creepiest person in and around the program. Sucks at baseball too. I don't want to hear my teams announcer get more excited over what the other team is doing. All Orange, all the time!

Don Munson??? Really??? What a bunch of goobers in the AD

Re: FB Update: Munson named new play-by-play voice of Clemson football


Posted: May 1, 2014 9:40 AM
 

due the extremely poor coverage of Tiger baseball and basketball in this area I have never heard Don do any broadcast; however,I have heard NUMEROUS complaints about just how awful his baseball announcing is. he makes MANY basic mistakes(where a ball is hit,how many outs, count,and more). the basic complaint is that he is impossible to follow as to the situation.. just what I have been told


I'm not a big fan of Dons basketball PBP

It's hard to tell what is going on most of the time on the court. Hard to listen to.
