    Musberger

    I was cruising the ESPN boards today, which suck if you didn't already know (big s/o to CW and crew), and a topic was brought up that Brent Musberger would be announcing the KU game next week. There were a lot of people over there that seemed surprised by that. I thought that Musberger was sort of "normal" announcer for Big Monday games, no?

    I don't was this to become a "Better him than Dukie Vitale" or anything, just honestly curious... TIA

    Re: Musberger

    I think he's announced every BigXII Big Monday game i've watched this year.

    I also think he's generally a horrible basketball announcer.

    Re: Musberger

    Can't stand either, but Dickie V is even less awful than Musberger. May as well just start out the game on mute with John Walters on, it usually takes me a while of listening before I get disgusted.

    Personally, I can deal with someone who is simply doing a bad job a lot easier than someone who is being an asshat attention whore.

    Should be fun. What if he happens to notice cowgirl in the audience? Maybe he'll launch her modeling career for the Dairy Association?

    Musberger is the official play-by-play man for any Big 12 game on Big Monday

    The ones on ESPN, yes, and Fraschilla does Color. They talked about it on the broadcast last night...it will be Musbergers first game inside Hilton. Fraschilla told Musberger he would take him to Hickory Park or Wallabys.

    Re: Musberger

    DOesn't he do games with Bobby Knight? Having Knight would make Mus tolerable.

    Edit: saw is was Fran with him, that's even better.

    Fraschilla is good, he is usually kind to us.
