Is Rowell pronounced like low-well or like pow-well? I always said it like low-well, but I heard the announcers last night keep saying it like pow-well.

Same thing for Edenfield. They were saying Edd-in-field. I thought it was Ede-in-field.

Just trying to figure out who is wrong, me or the announcers.

Keep all comments on the coaching in another thread, this name pronunciation is serious bidness and I don't want my thread polluted with all that other meaningless talk about coaching.

For JR, it's like pow-well,

and like dgoebel said, it's ed-in-field.

Thanks. I hate saying that I was wrong, but I hate more saying that ESPN announcers were right!

I just knew a guy with the last name Rowell back in the day and he pronounced it like I was.
