Denver native and legendary Husky broadcaster Bob Rondeau is part of the 2016 Husky Hall of Fame class. And the National Football Foundation will honor him with the Chris Schenkel Award in December.
I appreciate the fact that the Husky Hall is obviously an equal opportunity organization!
I always appreciated how likable he was in his demeanor and delivery, not to mention the richness of his voice. Didn’t hurt that he was an Indiana native. My wife Molly is a Hoosier.
Without a doubt, that was one of the greatest Husky teams ever. And I know that in their minds, they’d love to have had a chance to line up against the ’91 national championship squad for all-time Husky bragging rights.
The Husky Orange Bowl win over Oklahoma was the only game in my 35 years we were not allowed to broadcast. NBC had exclusive rights to the game and since our flagship station, KOMO, was an ABC affiliate, we were forbidden to carry it (a situation long since rectified by the NCAA). I watched with a big group of a people at a friend’s house and yelled my head off!
There isn’t a telescope on the planet that would let me see that far!
