    I love him and think he's done a great job tbh. I just wish Marv Albert could be at his side once again...

    There are not many crowds or places in the country that have a better impact on the game than at Iowa State. The Cyclone fans are truly a sixth man. The place is so loud and always a fantastic crowd." - Former Kansas and current North Carolina head coach Roy Williams

    I really enjoy Bob Costas, he is one of the few that never seems to ask a stupid question, he thinks before he speaks

    Couldn't agree more. His interview with President Bush actually had substance and was really interesting.

    Costas rules. NBA on NBC Baby!

    Looks like I'm in the minority here but I find him annoying. I liked him in BASEketball though.

    I agree. I usually tense up and become gassy via all things political, but I did enjoy that interview.

    Dumb poll. Not to mention, all hair is already dead - so it's hard for Costas to die his hair.

    Now he might dye it though...

    You can certainly have your opinion on the poll but I do think it is interesting that a guy I consider to be pretty "substantive" seems to be coloring his hair for certain and, it is my guess looking at his face, seems to have had a face lift. I am mildly surprised that he would do either or both. I just find it interesting and, frankly, was curious if others thought he was doing (or had done) either.

    I have always enjoyed Costas' work...both in sports and out of sports. He used to have a really solid late night interview show that was not exclusively sports oriented back in the 90s that was great. I do think he sometimes tries to be a little too "cute" with his comments but overall he does a solid job.

    By the way...good job out of you...in spotting the first error I have made all year!



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    That was the original version of Later, now starring Carson Daly. I'd much prefer to watch Bob Costas at 12:30 in the morning than Carson Daly.

    Re: Bob Costas...

    I think he does a fairly decent job.......in small doses. He's in love with his voice and talks too much about the "essence" or whatever of the sport.
