The "In-Com-Plete" chant has been around forever, right? Actually, no. It came into being shortly after Alan Cass was hired away from calling the University of Colorado Buffaloes games following the 1987 season. While its beginning can't be traced to an exact date, it was within those early few games that it was born.
Alan Roach permanently took over announcing duties in 2008 after Cass fell ill to West Nile Virus. At the time, there was some doubt as to whether or not the chant would endure. After a public outcry, of sorts, Roach embraced the chant and now almost thirty years since it shows no sign of going away any time soon.
On Thursday, the Denver Broncos announced that Conor McGahey would be taking over. McGahey has been involved with the Broncos in various voice and scoreboard capacities since 2006 and has a wide breadth of experience having worked with the Colorado Avalanche, Denver Outlaws, Colorado Rapids, and University of Colorado football.
So how do we know McGahey will keep 'In-Com-Plete' going? He had this to say in an article appearing in Friday's Denver Post.
"The answer is yes. It is here to stay," McGahey said. "I would be shot on site if I didn't do it. All of sudden Conor is not around anymore."
Will the new stadium announcer know exactly when to do it? He says he'll get some help from 'the smartest fans in the league.'
"Broncos fans are brilliant. They're the smartest fans in the league, bar none. They know when to do it and when not to," McGahey said. "Fans and I are on the same page. If it's an incomplete pass on second-and-1 in the first quarter, that's not the time for it. But if it's third-and-14 and a pattern over the middle and Von Miller hits a guy right in the numbers, that's the time.
"The fans know. I don't have to make that decision."
So there you have it folks! Circle Monday, October 24th on your calendar. That's when former Broncos quarterback Brock Osweiler and the Houston Texans come to town. If there is ever going to be a time that the chant will be the loudest, you can be sure it will be during that game.
