He had a list of his top point guards during the Iowa/Indiana game. WHAT THE ****?!?!?!?!?!?

He obviously pays absolutely no attention to the Big 12 unless it's Kansas or Buddy Hield.

He is an annoying clown that offers no insight into the game but just yelling and repeating worn out phrases.

Bill Walton is high as a kite right now. Pulled out a lighter and lit a candle on a cupcake. Talking about playing the glockenspiel and improving his button collection.

Dickie V as much as I love to hate him is all ACC and Indianna...that's it. Doesn't matter how bad indianna. Iowa doesn't do well when u get in their grill..they are going to run into a team in tourney that plays in your face defense and lose.

The best is listening to him talk about how Woodbury has "such a soft touch" and should get the ball more.

I actually wish we could petition the NCAA to get him more eligibility.

The only way I can listen to **** V for an entire game is to count how many times he says "Baby". It sounds so stupid and throw back I can only laugh. Other than that I often have no idea who he is talking about with his endless stories - like WTF does Joe Blow on the 1973 Indiana team have to do with the current game? How bout the 1963 UCLA team?

Dicki V while more a character of his old self. Brought a lot of stuff to basketball. He made it ok for Gus Johnson to do his thing. He brought excitement to the announce table. Like someone else said. He almost 80 years old. He cant know everyone. Think of your grandpa announcing. Yeah. I am not a huge fan. However, i dont mind him and there is a reason people get 3xcited when Dickie v is doing their game.

Vitale is a smart man, he caters to his audience. The only people in the country watching last night were Big 10 fans so why stroke other conferences? When he does a Big 12 game you'd think it's the only conference he watches. He's got nothing but great things to say about ISU, KU, and others.
