I'm gonna screem the next time I hear VITALE say"I think the next three minutes is really important to this or that team". 20 years of his analysis us enough time to put a failed college and pro coach out to pasture in Florida... Evil or Very Mad

But I thought ESPN was Duke's personal TV station during basketball season. Bad PC

At least Jay Bilas has a reasonable excuse to be biased...

A few things.

First of all, you have to respect Duke. They have an enrollment of about 6400 students which is tiny compared to most of the ACC and they are the cream of the crop in terms of college basketball. The brand of basketball they play is fundamental and quality. They took a chance on Coach K all those years ago and stuck with him when most wanted him fired after starting 38-47 in his first three seasons. If you didn't see it, and have a chance you should take a look at Duke: all access that played on ESPNU about a month ago you definitely should. If you love college basketball, you can't help but love what they do.

Also, how can you not love Dicky V BABY! He is truly a one of a kind character and while he loves Duke and doesn't have the greatest love for the mid-majors until they've won a game in the tournament he is great for college basketball. Someone who loves the sport as much as he does is a great ambassador for the game.

Hahhahahahhahaha...

And while Dickie V's enthusiasm for the sport is commendable, that doesn't make him any less annoying as an announcer...

Let's not get carried away here. Dickie V's no Craig Ehlo.

I agree. I cannot stand Ehlo. Even my brother, a GU alum, is sympathetic to any non-Gonzaga fan who has to endure an Ehlo broadcast.
