    He is such a troll in looks and demeanor...I'm glad to see him go.

    Although I'm not entirely certain Clark Kellogg is an upgrade.

    Clark Kellogg is definitely better than Billy Packer. But Nantz will sandbag him, I'm sure. Jim Nantz is college basketball's version of Pat Summerall. Yawn.

    Packer is a grumpy old troll. Anything is far better than Billy and his ACC bias.

    I concur with the sentiments said here about Packer - one of the worst announcers (major announcers that is) of all time! AND I agree, CyRocket, once Dickie V is done - I will be a happy camper. The only thing I liked about DV is the fact that Orr "hammered" him good during the selection show ages ago. The only way I'd watch DV is if they did an Orr and Vitale basketball show where V blathers on about "basketball" and Orr comes in and totally smashes him with real basketball knowledge. That'd be a good program!

    Re: Billy Packer out at CBS!!!

    Was never really bothered by Billy. The guy was biased as all get-out, but almost all of the announcers have some sort of bias.

    I agree with the statement about wishing Gus was filling his spot.

    for me it wasn't bias, but stupidity that made me dislike him. I can't count the number of times he announced the wrong name or made an incorrect assesment. Glad to see him go. Not a fan of DV either, or John Madden for that matter.
