Former Florida Gator tight end, Tate Casey, will be featured on the team’s IMG Sports Network as a sideline reporter for the 2018 college football season.

Casey joins a radio team which includes veteran play-by-play announcer Mick Hubert who enters his 30th season as the voice of the Gators and Lee McGriff who will begin his 25th season as an analyst on the broadcast.  Casey will also partner with Jeff Cardozo for the Gators pregame, halftime and postgame coverage.

“Since leaving Texas to play at UF, I have called Florida my home and the Gator Nation my family,” Casey said in a press release. “Having the opportunity to start a new chapter with Mick Hubert and his team is a huge privilege, and I look forward to being a part of Florida football in a different capacity that allows me to merge two of the biggest passions in my life, football and the University of Florida.

I’m anxious to get to work and kick off the Dan Mullen era during a period where anticipation for Gator football is at an all-time high.”

Casey is well-remembered by Gator fans, having famously caught Tim Tebow’s jump pass for a touchdown against LSU in 2006.  The tight-end caught seven touchdowns during his tenure at Florida, winning two football National Championships and playing baseball in the College World Series.

The Gators IMG Sports Network is carried by 32 affiliates across the state of Florida, with coverage being anchored by its flagship, WRUF 103.7 FM in Gainesville.  The Gators begin their 2018 football season on September 1st with a home game against Charleston Southern University.

Howie Rose has cut back on his travel schedule as the radio voice of the New York Mets in 2022, but he says that no place is off limits during the playoffs.

“Oh, I’m all-in if they play in Timbuktu,” Rose told Newsday. “A lot of this was designed to make sure that I had enough reserve to be able to handle anything that comes up in terms of road trips.”

Rose, 68, readies for what is likely to be a Wild Card series start to the playoffs and because of their Wild Card status, a win there could mean a trip to Los Angeles for the National League Divisional Series.

“It’s not exactly like managing Edwin Diaz’s innings, but I think that doing the number of games that I have and more to the point, being able to take the breaks that I have, has enabled me to approach the postseason with a clear mind and the full-speed-ahead attitude that you need to have.”

Some analysis made by Sunday Night Football commentator Cris Collinsworth caught the attention of 94 WIP morning host Angelo Cataldi that sent him over the edge Monday morning.

“Joe Banner ripped Cris Collinsworth last night over something he said about Andy Reid in the game last night,” Rhea Hughes said as she detailed Banner’s criticism. “He goes ‘I worked for Andy Reid for 14 years. Cris Collinsworth just said if there’s anything Andy Reid loves to do it’s pound the football.”

“Oh that’s a total lie! Cris Collinsworth is a bozo!”, Cataldi shouted.

Reid faced heavy criticism at the end of his tenure as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles for his reluctance to run the football. The team routinely finished in the bottom half of the league in rushing yards per game during Reid’s 14 seasons at the helm of the franchise.

“He goes ‘I think Cris is usually smart in and his analysis is good but…” Hughes said before Cataldi interrupted by shouting “No he’s not! No he’s not!”, he reiterated. “He’s not smart!”

“NBC needs to learn he does no work anymore,” Hughes added of Collinsworth.

“Nothing! Stop it! Stop it all of you! Stop it now!”, Cataldi concluded.
