Retired University of Oklahoma Announcer Bob Barry on Sportsline [AUDIO]
Longtime friends Jack Dale and Bob Barry talked on Sportsline. They rehashed their stories from more than 100 years of combined collegiate announcing and projected the Sooners 2011 football season.
Barry has been announcing Oklahoma sports since 1961. In 1961 OU Head Football Coach Bud Wilkinson selected Barry to do the play-by-play for OU football and basketball. Barry did that until 1971 when he went to the University of Tulsa. After calling games at Tulsa for one season Barry went to Oklahoma State. Barry called the Cowboys from 1973-1990. In 1990 he went back to his roots and called OU games up until last year when he retired.
