Very cool dude! Great to see somebody that has made it take the time to help others, especially when they choose to do it without expecting any fanfare.

Marty Smith has been loving LSU for 3 years. He throws LSU into the National conversation every chance he gets a chance. He makes everything real in his commentaries and TV shows. He's just a plain on great country guy.

I think this is close to how things are (a brotherhood) than the negative publicity the profession gets...mostly from all the crap that comes out of ESPN.

Marty has went from a guy I didn’t really care for, to one of my favorite reporters. He seems genuine and passionate about everything he reports.

Yes - I have to begrudgingly admit that I have become a big fan of Mr. Smith

Still don't care for Marty Smith for all the bad mouthing of LSU. Soon as LSU won, he was like a bandwagon groupie.

That is awesome. Earned my respect. Could have laughed or got proud. Instead helped him out with no reward except encouragement. Props.

I'd never heard of this Marty Smith guy till this year, is he fairly new himself? Props to him though, the young guy seemed to know who he was.

He did nascar for years until a couple years ago when he started jumping into football and other stuff. Always seemed like a cool guy.

Never been much of a Marty Smith fan. But I will certainly view him differently moving forward. What a kind thing to do.
