    Drake Broadcasters Bush League

    These guys are absolutely bush league.
    I know every school's commentators are subjective; but holy crap Drake's were insufferably bias. I get it trust me. But seriously every time ISU did anything positive (block shot or get a steal) they complained of fouls not being called. They said Scotty was palming the ball, etc. It was never ending......
    How hard is it to pronounce Palo. It's not PayLow.
    Drake play by play is bush league.

    I turned off the TV sound and listened to Our announcers on the radio. Worked great.

    Re: Drake Broadcasters Bush League

    I don't know that they warrant a thread like this, but it's a little weird to be watching tv and hear the announcers saying "WE" like they are on the Drake team.

    They were particularly bad. But, what do you really expect from the Drake announcers?

    Re: Drake Broadcasters Bush League

    meh, it's Drake. I don't know what people expect. I wouldn't call the CTN announcers all world talent.

    "it is what it is"

    Cotman must have done well tonight. Very few complaints about him ;)

    Agreed. And not just the bias calling, they were total amateurs. it was like listening to a high school broadcast

    No joke. I realize some of you were watching the online feed, but shut the stupid sound off and listen to John and Eric, even if the timing is way off. Not sure why anyone would willingly subject themselves to listening to Cotlar and Dolph.

    And did he call Babbs long three a bank? Never replayed it but I thought it was a swish. Did I miss something?

    They're talking about the Clone Zone video, which had the Drake radio broadcast feed over top of it.

    Larry Morgan was on Mediacom's PbP.

    The Bush League would not take those idiots if they paid their own way.
