    Last weekend a player picked up another player and literally threw them out of bounds, and Bill's comment was "let them play!". Complete nimrod

    The answer is "Yes". ESPN sure hired a pair of duds with Walton and Doherty this year. I don't like Bruce Pearl as a studio analyst, either, but I love Seth Greenberg.

    I just figured you all Midwest Time Zone folks did not get to enjoy his awesome commentary, so I never posted about him. He is absolutely terrible. Whoever thought he was a good idea should be fired.

    If I was a PAC 12 fan, I'd definitely listen to the radio

    Yes, it's pretty unbearable to watch as well. UCLA lost by 12 to Wazzu, and Cal is currently getting beat by Stanford. Cal and UCLA are 2 of the top-3 programs in the league.

    I'm pretty sure I saw this play that you are referencing and being in disbelief at Walton's response to it. I honestly couldn't tell if he was trolling or not when he said that. Whether he was trolling or not, Walton is one weird motherf*cker.

    Walton makes a good point about basketball that is rarely made. You do need to try to outrun your opponent every possession. That's rarely said. Running the court is incredibly important. However, I still want to hit him in the head with a hammer.

    Really? Can I ask what you disliked about Knight? I miss him, a lot--he seemed to bring a lot of Xs and Os knowledge to the broadcast rather than weird-*** commentary (Walton) and "coulda woulda shoulda" remarks (Doherty).

    He's still around, if you really miss him that much. He doesn't seem to do any prep for games, doesn't know any names or tendencies of teams. And he seems to pretty much hate everything he sees. I think he's been the worst of the bunch this year.

    Really, what games does he do?

    He is absolutely terrible. Constantly complaining about the modern college bball rules, or talking about how much better it was when he was playing
