The Chris Sloan archive gravy train keeps giving. There's even some rare KHJ from 1988! The 9:00 VO at the time would later do a lot of ABC Sports work in the late 80s and 90s. The 1:00 one was a

And I decided to put this 1990 ABC College Football Intro (with one of Brent Musberger's first assignment after being thrown out by CBS) up to test what happens.

It was pretty good, I thought. I only sampled it up to the part where the actual titles occurred, but I have to say that I actually liked this 1990 opening. I don't think that Brent lost any of his verve. The best part was where the animated football formed and was then kicked towards the title, lighting it up and creating the title card.

 

Unfortunately, considering what the NFL did to "mrwrestlingtape1" (that person had to take down all those old NFL clips, no thanks to Roger Goodell of the "No Fun League"), the bigwigs that run "ESPN on ABC" will probably find a way to take this clip down. It virtually never fails.

Yep, it happened (if you're referring to "mrwrestlingtape1," which I believe you are). What I don't understand is what the NFL has against its past. Whatever it is, it isn't good. I'm surprised that the NBA has not chased off all those clips of when CBS had it. There are tons of CBS NBA clips around YouTube, and virtually no one at the NBA has said anything of them. Why does the NBA seem to care about its past while the NFL doesn't? It's a mystery to me.

Niiiiiiiiiice! Great job WPVI!

 

Also important - they put up two very very old promos featuring some of the rare promo cuts of MCTYW. One has the vocal theme, which is announced as "the family of friends singing for Action News".

 

The open has to be no later than 1977 (they mention Larry Kane)... and I think it's VERY possible that everything - certainly the promos at least - dates from when the theme was first used in 1972.
