Here's the wonderful Jack Cristil tribute from Saturday's pregame

Thank you, Learfield Sports, for putting this together. This is great.

We've seen numerous tributes and personal stories about former MSU radio voice Jack Cristil shared this past week since his passing away late on the evening of September 7th, but it wouldn't have been fitting to not have a radio tribute given Jack's more than 50 years spent calling Mississippi State basketball and football games.  This tribute was played on the radio prior to Saturday's South Alabama game, and a big, big thanks to Learfield for sharing it via soundcloud for those of us who missed it.

It's really neat to hear from the other radio voices from around the SEC, and to hear how Jack influenced and touched their lives both as individuals and as fellow broadcast professionals.  His impact is truly more widespread than we may ever know.

Rest in peace, Jack.
