David Pollack is not above making references to mid-'90s cult comedy films that feature large volumes of low-brow humor in the middle of national television broadcasts.
USC kicker Andre Heidari, who has missed two field goals against Utah, will probably be happy with Pollack's Ace Ventura nod, especially considering the implication that this miss wasn't really his fault.
Pollack's commentary in general and the "Laces out, Dan!" reference are great, but they're even better when compared to the commentary that used to exist in his place. College football without Craig James is a nearly flawless entity, and this cannot be reiterated often enough.
Like Ray Finkle, Heidari can hold his missed field goals over the head of his holder for the rest of his life. Of course, this isn't the Super Bowl and USC appears to be well on their way to a victory over Utah, but don't be surprised if his holder and Traveler go missing.
