Anyone following John Ward in the booth was bound to be cursed despite John's rejection of that idea just before he retired. I think he underestimated his influence on the Tennessee football faithful over the years.
I feel sorry for those who never got to hear John call a game. At least they can hear some snippets on youtube these days, but even that is not the same as hearing it live. Even with the TV broadcast, I remember turning down the sound and listening to John Ward though the audio and picture were not together.
Having said that. The man who follows Kesling has a much better chance of success. I don't have anything against Kesling, but not only is his style very different... the quality of performance just isn't anywhere near Ward's. That probably applies to the whole support cast.
