    Arnaud...how hard is it to pronounce??

    What is the deal with uneducated, uninformed sportscasters, sports anchors, etc that can't pronounce Arnaud? Seriously, how hard is it? A joker of an anchor here in Omaha had a Big XII preview and butchered a few last names, including Austen's. He pronounced it "Arnood". Are you serious? There isn't an "O" in his name.

    They also had the old logo. Yes, living in nebraska is glorious!

    It's French.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    I think it was last year's game at UNLV where one of the broadcasters was calling him AR-no the whole game. Can't remember for sure but it was one of the earlier season games.
