Auburn will likely never have a play-by-play man that is better than Jim. Just the best, period. And one of the best ever, anywhere in any sport (maybe that is partly O&B glasses, but I'll stand by it). So really hard to compare Rod. Almost not fair. Rod does a fantastic job, but he followed a legend.
I also liked listening to Jim call basketball games. He was, if I recall, a Kentucky native. So he loved the round-ball. When I was a basketball manager, I had the opportunity to get to know him a little bit; not very well, but I had a handful of conversations with him, mostly about basketball. And he very often seemed to love basketball just as much as football.
