Says The Wizard of Oz!
Fast talkin' from the Northeast. I feel your pain.
^^^^This. Before even listening, I did my best Frank Caliendo, and I said both phrases myself in a NE accent, and quickly, to see how they sounded, and knew then they'd sound almost identical to one another. I just couldn't swear it was one or the other, after listening.
Thus, my participation above was limited to only lame attempts at humor.
Perhaps next time, some brave soul in the media can say, "Yo, Sal, slow down. We DON'T 'know what you're sayin'."
OR, a REALLY brave smart-aleck could say, "No, we dunnowutchyasayin' anymore than your players on defense do." And then run away.
"Bravely taking to his feet, he beat a very brave retreat." Sir Robin's Minstrels.
Context clues give me "so I" but i listened 10 times and only heard someone. So someone it is.
I think you may have just identified the major issue for our defense...
I heard "someone" but you know as well as I do once the seed is planted your ears can and will hear what they want to.
I have a feeling a lot of people are going to hear "someone" because that's what they want to hear
For the record I heard "someone will call the defense".
I speak Salaniese, and he said Someone.
"So I'm gonna..."
Someone above said it sounded like "Imma," and if so, I'd have paid at least a couple hundred if a reporter could pull a Leslie Nielsen with a straight face: "Who's Imma? And why would we be letting her call the defenses?"
Then again, she probably couldn't do much worse.
Say, there's an idea: A "fan as DC for a day" contest, with proceeds to go to a worthwhile kids' charity.
So I'm gonna call the defense.
I listened about 10 times and I think it's "someone."
I listened a few times. Now, I struggle with my hearing sometimes, but I think it sounds like he said "I'm gonna call the defense...",but then when I read his lips, it seems like he's saying "someone will call the defense". It definitely doesn't jibe with "I'm gonna call the defense". But I can totally see where there's confusion there! He was definitely talking fast and not as loud as usual. Those are the people I have trouble communicating with, fast talkers who don't talk very loud, and cover their lips. Ugh, I hate those people! Haha.
The king of the castle woke up with no issues this morning and still had dinner cooked for him this evening.

I'm in the "someone" camp.
That's exactly what I thought at first, too.
YOU KNOW WHAT IM SAYIN? YOU KNOW WHAT IM SAYIN?
I don't care who calls the defense as long as they play some defense :) Go Vols!
I heard "someone will call...," but it is impossible to know for sure from the audio.
In the context of the sentence "so" would not make any sense. To illustrate this point, insert the definition of the conjunction "so" into the sentence: To say "my role won't change at all 'and for this reason' I will call the defenses" is nonsense. If he was trying to communicate that he is making the calls, he would have simply said "my role won't change at all; I will call the defenses."
It is far more likely that he anticipated this question and came prepared to give a mumbled ambiguous answer. I am a lawyer (in the northeast no less) and see people do that crap all the time. If he had been asked "are you doing the calls," he couldn't have wiggled out of a direct answer, but the wording of the question allowed him to skirt the issue. His meaningless follow up comment of "and that will get us going" further illustrates his intent to avoid the issue as best he could.
As long as we get it going, I don't care who the hell calls it...
It's "someone will". "so I'm gonna" doesn't even make sense in the context of what he was saying.
He probably won't call another play for Tennessee. Such a shame that one bad hire could cost Dooley his job but that's the nature of the business and that's why it isn't a good idea to hire people with little or no experience as DC
