Casey was awesome. Not sure of his play by play skills though, he did mostly color correct?

I would like to see Clay Matvik. Always enjoy him calling hockey games. I know it is zero chance, but that would be my pick.

Overhead on SiouxSports.com - Why does every thread always turn into a "Gopher" thread? Is there a secret infatuation with them?

Like I said in the other thread, I voted for Dan Kelly, although I doubt if he would take it. Ben Holden would be ok, as long as Starman doesn't come with him and it would make the NACHO people mad if he left. I would prefer a younger guy/gal that would do the games for decades. I know Wally Shaver's kid does PxP, but don't know much about him.

Does this mean McLeod is done?!?! That would be amazing.

Edit: Just saw the good news in the other thread.

Ben Holden: The main NCHC guy on CBSSN
Charlie Beattie: The guy to took McLeod's place in the State Tourney, also calls the Prep Bowl.
Chris Vosters: BTN guy that called the playoff series with Michigan. Also calls football on FS1 and a ton of BTN stuff.
Dan Kelly: The main BTN guy
Dan Tehaar: Called local hockey for years. Was the Gopher radio guy before Wally took over.
Jim Rich: Main Ch.9 sports guy. Calls SCSU games on FSN with Micheletti.

Was Dave Ryan the fellow who did the play-by-play for the Frozen Four in 2002? I thought he was outstanding.

If Dan Kelly is interested, he's absolutely the guy. Love his PBP for BTN.

No Chance Ben Holden leaves his job with CBS. It would be awesome to have him if we could.
