Hope they have the ĎAbove the rimí broadcast option. Watched it last night and it was great. Sounds of the game without the analysts speaking.

If you have a DVR, just pause the TV around 25-28 seconds (play with it to line it up exactly) then listen to Chuck with the TV muted.  The only drawback is Zimmerman, but it beats Dickie V...

Walton was horrible. At least DV will talk college basketball. Albeit mostly about Duke. But Walton is subject to talking about architecture, foreign cultures and the finer eateries in the Bay Area. No thanks.

He will definitely slob all over Gafford though. Gafford is a diaper dandy and Vitale loves him some diaper dandies. That sounds really weird.

Why did Vitale never try coaching again after leaving the pros? 

As a college coach he was 79-29 in 4 years at Detroit reaching the Sweet 16 his final year. He then went to the Pistons compiling a 34-60 record. Detroit let him go just 12 games into his second season.  I would think some college would have taken a chance on him if he had wanted to coach.

30 years ago Vitale was entertaining.  Now he might as well be a 70's laugh track still running on endless repeat that doesn't sync with the live show anymore.

Anyway let's hope we are complaining about him tomorrow.  His voice can barely get through one game a day.  Karl Ravech, Sean Farnham, Laura Rutledge are today's crew for semi #2.

Ha ha...my friend and I just sat their and laughs th whole game when he was the announcer. It was just non-stop random stuff. His rant about Oregon solar power homes was cracking me up. Itís so annoying but Iíd STILL take him any day over Dickie.

I know he loves the hogs and I am sure he is a great person but man it's unbearable. The other team is always so good and we are always so bad and you can't enjoy anything because he is a pessimist and is constantly talking about what could go wrong I can't pinpoint it but it's terrible. It's simple impossible to listen too. Yesterday we got a 1 and 1 and Zimmerman went crazy saying they aren't going to give it to us as if that ever happens ever. And you could sense chucks frustration with him and chuck said "yes they are" with a tone of "would you calm down that's silly"

Chuck deserves a top shelf color guy. Thurman was great because he is great at everything.

I used to really enjoy listening to him. Back in the 90ís when we were so hot especially. You could tell he really got a kick out of college ball, and he seemed to know every stat on just about every player. That game against Kentucky really did it for me though. He really trashed us and I wouldnít be surprised to hear they had to go to the E.R. After the game to get his nose out of Calipariís butt!
