    Re: Who is this ******* commentator?

    I kind of like him. He's pretty favorable to ISU.

    Players constantly make mistakes in even the best basketball games ever, and it's not at all constrictive or informative for a d-bag announcer to constantly point them out.
    I get that too, I may be experiencing some PTSD from over-exposure to Vitale. I do not appreciate announcers telling me what a great game I'm seeing when obvious mistakes are being made. I thought the guys tonight were OK for being the D-team of announcers (maybe more like the R team).

    I wish more color guys were like Doherty and Bilas (you know providing insight into the game) instead of the verbal diarrhea you get from Raftery and Vitale

    The announcer this thread is about may have been bashing Ejim, but Mitch Holthus has been pro ISU, pointing out how we lost to Texas and Kansas.
    Mitch Holthus has said he likes to do games in ames and imo he does a good job

    Re: Who is this ******* commentator?

    Some of his comments are pretty good, but then he will just make a really odd comment.

    Haha, I totally get that...I'd take 100 Matt Dohertys over listening to Dookie V!

    Re: Who is this ******* commentator?

    I dunno, Doherty can give some ok insights at time, but then he'll have one of those "He shoulda done this" statements, and all I can think is "No s*** Sherlock!" A bit Maddening.

    I think the beginning of the END for him at his alma mater UNC was an early loss AT HOME in 2001-2002 season to none other than HAMPTON

    yest, the same HAMPTON that upset ISU 8-9 months earlier in the NCAA's

    Re: Who is this ******* commentator?

    The worst comment came with about 35 secs left (25 secs on shot clock) in the 1st half when Doherty announced that Iowa State has a foul to give that they should use.

    Re: Who is this ******* commentator?

    I'd give Doherty a B+ on his commentary of the game. He made allot of favorable comments about our Cyclones tonight. Would you rather have had Dick Veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee ? Yikes.

    Living in KC, I really like Hothus and I get the feeling he likes us. For those that don't know, Mitch Holthus is the voice of the Chiefs.

    As for Doherty, I didn't hear him bash Ejim, except to call him out on a couple of bad defensive lapses, which he should have. Those are the types of things at the end of a game that will often cost you on the road, against a team not coached by Drew.

    This board seems to hate a lot of ones that don't do their research on us, which is a lot (like Matt D.)

    We love Fran though (as long as it's not that angry guy in eastern iowa.)

    Yeah, he's been pretty dumb when I've heard him. All he ever talks about is UCLA and all of the "rich basketball tradition" in the PAC-12.
