    Legit - Wes Durham has the biggest butt I’ve ever seen. This isn’t a joke - that guy can fill a seat.

    Wes comes in the local sports talk station up here in Raleigh, and man does it bring back some good memories. By the way he talks up Collins and GT in general, you can tell he still has a soft spot in his heart for the Jackets. Too bad he's getting that Falcon and ACC network money now.

    Wes is one of the best in the business....college or NFL. He deserves a bigger platform.

    I’m not being sarcastic. I’m being literal - He has a huge a**

    Lol, I know. Unfortunately, I think his physique is the biggest reason why he's not considered for more high profile jobs. The guy has one of the best voices in all of sports broadcasting and he knows football and basketball.

    I understand but I prefer to look at women's back end. Must be an age thing :)

    He said he has not seen his daughter in a month. His wife was down here for the Super Bowl with him.

    He is helping his family move to Atlanta. They have been in Philadelphia. His wife and daughter will be around often once they live in Atlanta rather than Philadelphia.

    Wes is the best...

    I am sure Wes still loves the Jackets. I was part of a conversation with Wes after a recent basketball game and he spoke well of the institute. Doubt there is much Tech could do to get him back in the fold tho.

    I recall a game where Charlie Rogers returned a punt for a TD. He was over the top with "Oh Charlie".

    All the best Wes!

    I listen on Sirius every morning driving to work. Wes does the show from his home in Atlanta, and Mark is in his home in Charlotte.
    Today, in fact, they told Tom Luginbill he needs to bring the Waffle House truck to them next time he’s in Atlanta.

    Collins preaches family above everything and he means actual family and the team which he considers extended family. If you go and listen to his introductory press conference he talked about how his wife was always around the team when they were at Temple (and I assume his daughter was with his wife). The only reason he has not seen his daughter in a month is because they are still up in Pennsylvania I am guessing getting everything ready for the move. He also mentioned that he did do FaceTime with his daughter so while he hasen't seen her in person he has spent time talking to her.

    Yes, but thank you for the reminder for those that need it. I am kind of plugged in very closely, so all of that is common knowledge, but I am sure there are some that were not aware.

    FYI - I Facetime with my granddaughter - better than nothing, for sure, but kids need more real contact. Like you said, I believe once they are in the ATL, CGC will be able to take the time to be a "more time with the kids" dad (which I am sure he is) and a great coach. (may not sleep very much) I do realize though that sometimes driven people can neglect family. I doubt that will happen with CGC. Hoping he has people around him that will let him know if they see that happening.

    $$$$$$$$$s needed to do so are not in the realistic budget.

    So unless Wes tires of traveling more so than he did when he was the voice of the Jackets and Falcons, I don't see it happening.

    His dad stayed as the voice of the tar heels his entire career. It's amazing how much they sound alike. Wes has been super successful in the Atlanta market. He is right up there with Al Ciraldo as my favorite GT announcer.

    You guys remember Keith Jackson? He's retired now, but he use to be the seminal voice of college football.

    IMO, Wes is every bit as good, and his voice is every bit as commanding as Keith Jackson's. Both have the same self deprecating, "aww shucks", approach to calling a game.
