Fans going crazy for 'Uncle Verne' on Twitter as former SEC broadcaster calls Masters
It has been a couple of years since Verne Lundquist was the voice of the SEC on CBS, but he’s still around doing his thing every now and then.
Uncle Verne is calling the Masters this weekend, and it’s making a lot of fans of college football nostalgic for the good old days.
Like him or not as a football broadcaster, his voice is iconic and when he’s on the call, you know it’s an important event. Add in Tiger Woods leading in the final round of the Masters, and it’s shaping up to be a great Sunday.
As you can see below, media members and fans flocked to Twitter to praise Uncle Verne for his calls during the most iconic golf tournament of the year:

Doesn’t break my heart to hear Verne calling a sporting event again. I think it was time for him to move on from football but that doesn’t mean he has to give up everything.
