    Question Paul Keels, "The Voice Of The Buckeyes"

    The last 2 weeks, Paul Keels hasn't announced OSU games on the radio. Pregame of the Wisconsin game, they said he was in the hospital. Anyone have any info on "The Voice Of The Buckeyes" ?

    I think he had surgery on his intestine, not 100% on that.

    Ken Gordon wrote about it before the Wisconsin game. Here's the excerpt about Keels in the article:

    Surgery silences Keels

    Paul Keels, play-by-play announcer on the Ohio State football radio network, will miss Saturday's game at Wisconsin after undergoing emergency abdominal surgery Tuesday.

    Keels is expected to make a full recovery but likely will remain hospitalized until early next week.

    In his place, Marty Bannister will take over the play-by-play duties alongside analyst Jim Lachey. Dan Fronczak of Channel 10 will replace Bannister as the sideline reporter.

    Apparently it was for "intestinal blockage" and the surgery was successful. Hope he gets better because listening to the buckeyes on the radio isn't the same without him.
