I'm out of state and can't turn off sound to tv.  No radio to grab. 

But I literally cannot listen to his braggadocio b/s.  He has no discernible talent, nor any background worthy of his status.  I've already posted what he will say no matter how the game turns out.  All KY.  He has a crush on Ashley Judd, who is an idiot.

Only worse announcers are Walton and Billy Packer.  And that Moins lady, because of her voice.

Squid Man and Saban........two coaches very easy to dislike.

If Moins had a better voice she would go over better. She could change that but she would need a voice coach. That said, she is not the worst on the mic. I have watched some of the G5 games that made me wish she was calling the game.

No way Vitale is running his own twitter account.  He hires somebody to do it.  First of all, the language is way too intelligent to be Dickie V.  Secondly, he is having them use it as a troll account.  Amazing what our media has evolved to in this day.

5 sold out games say otherwise
Don’t get me wrong - this game is huge.
However, depending on how the next few weeks go, the midweek vs Auburn or the rematch vs LSU might be bigger... even without the precious BBN involved.

No, Kentucky is always bigger.

She is a really good play-by-play announcer and over the years I’ve gotten to where her voice doesn’t grate on me.

Vitale was right in his comments in that SECT game.  Our team including coaching staff lost their darn.  Also right about the excitement being elevated because UK is the opponent.  Dumb to deny. Vitale or whomever tweets for him could show us a little more respect.  But this poor little Arkansas victim nonsense is what Nolan and Mike fueled.  It’s annoying like Dabo. 

Nolan had our program where we elevated excitement going into other buildings.  Enjoy Muss taking us back there and stop crying

Disregarding the way his voice strikes me like fingernails on a chalk board, he hasn't been as bad as usual. I just wish he could refrain from mentioning his precious Duke during the rest of the game.

He's a professional announcer calling a game saying he wants the game to hurry up and end so he can go watch a different game. A Duke one at that. He literally said "I hope Quickley makes the free throws so this game can go more Quickley". Just poor form. Disrespectful too. The sad thing is he doesn't realize it. He's brainwashed by ESPN to prop up the top revenue generating teams.

I won't even watch a game with Walton. They show him as much as the game itself.

Walton publicly slandered Williamson on ESPN live tv.  Called him "Little Nasty"  was all around disrespectful of the runner up team we had back in the day against his alma matter UCLA.  I've never heard anyone be so unsportsmanlike and unprofessional at their job.  99/100 analysts would credit their team and either say nothing, or complement their opponent as well.  Not make snide remarks about a program.  I will never forget that about Walton.

I can’t tell you the last time I listened to Vitale. I have to say, I give him mad props. He had the most knowledge of our program (and history) of any national color guy I’ve seen, maybe even including Jimmy D. I was really impressed how many random games, players, etc. he knew about it and cited pretty naturally into the conversation.

Dickie V was not too bad, most of the time.  Better than I expected, by far.  I had no choice.....tried the online radio voice but it was 45 seconds out of synch with the tv.  No way I could deal with that.  But I was surprised, he did pretty good.  I am glad he can't do NCAA tourney (although I wish that ESPN still had tv rights to the tourney, and showed every game).

This is something I noticed as well. He would compare our guys to older players too. I can’t remember the guy he compared to Moncrief though. Think it was Whitt maybe.

Walton his becoming the new Dickie V. More of a side show than a commentator. I was sitting there watching a game the other night. It was just on in the background while I worked and Walton kept talking about his counterpart’s tie and how it looked like candy or something. The other color guy finally just said that he should taste it, so Walton reaches over, grabbed his tie, and licked it. It was the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen.

I recorded and watched the game last night after reading this thread. Vitale was absolutely fine. I did not watch after the Calipari T. Actually, I think the respect Musselman has in basketball helps us with regard to the team respect issue. After more talent gets here, Arkansas (with Musselman) will be a very well respected team.
