Video: Clark Kellogg reacts to his son advancing to the Sweet 16

The Dagger

While Clark Kellogg was calling the Lehigh/Xavier game for truTV, his son, Nick was making history.

Nick is a sophomore guard for Ohio and scored nine points in a 62-56 win over South Florida that sent the Bobcats to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 1964.

Kellogg's broadcasting partner Jim Nantz alerted the Lehigh/Xavier audience to the upset while Kellogg was playfully complaining that the clock in that game, which was stuck on 15 seconds, wasn't moving quickly enough.

During a break in the action of the Lehigh/Xavier game, the camera shifted to Kellogg and Nantz as Nantz announced the game had gone final and Ohio had won. He then proceeded to shake Kellogg's hand and remarked that it was "clammy."

"Oh wow, oh wow, oh my goodness, oh my goodness," Kellogg said as he looked at the final score.

Credit Kellogg for doing his job while his son was in the midst of the biggest moment of his life. It had to be tough for Kellogg to pay attention to the game he was calling while keeping a watchful eye on his son's progress.

But in the end, when it was all over, Kellogg couldn't hold back the elation for his son's triumph.

"Good job young fella," Kellogg said before adding an emphatic, "Way to go Bobcats!"
