    Dick Vitale

    Can't stand the guy. He just tweeted this:

    Fans of Iowa S must be upset knowing they had Wes Johnson before he left 4 Syracuse.
    What about you guys? Love him or hate him? I can't really envision any middle ground.

    I hate the guy. Never seen an announcer allowed to be so biased to a particular conference.

    PS my immediate reply was,

    "It's pretty low that this is your only way of getting back at ISU and Johnny Orr for owning you."

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

    Haha, I'm not. One of my buddies "re-tweeted" Vitale's tweet so it popped up on my feed.

    A biased poll about a biased individual.

    Listening to him talk about Duke is like listening to John Madden gush about Brett Favre.

    The next time he talks on Sportscenter, look at his hands.

    I don't mind him. I appreciate his passion. I don't take him very seriously. When he dies, it will be a significant loss to college basketball IMO.

    Wow! John Saunders has been around that long? I'm 39 and don't remember him back then.

    I can't even remember how long I remember him, but he's kind of ageless in broadcasting terms.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!
