Loran Smith to the booth

Georgia ISP announced, in a sort of by-the-way fashion, that longtime sideline announcer Loran Smith is being replaced this season by Chuck Dowdle.

Smith will remain with the gameday crew, hosting the three-hour pregame show with Neil Williamson.

But Dowdle will now handle sideline duties and the halftime radio interview with Bulldogs head coach Mark Richt.

Dowdle recently retired after a quarter-century as sports director and anchor at WSB TV in Atlanta. He has already been hosting the Locker Room Show with Richt, and will continue in that role.

I can't freaking stand Dowdle's voice - any way we could hire a call girl to take him out, get him drunk and put her panties between his legs???

Top 3 Loran-isms:

(1) "Looks like some-a our boys caught a cramp, Larry";

(2) "berled peanuts";

(3) "on the sidelines with a blister, soaking his hand in some pickle juice".

All in that beautiful Southern tenor lilt.

Loran, we hardly knew ye.
