Bill Walton? Dan Dakich?

I'd rather listen to either of them over Fran. I'd rather listen to Dave Armstrong. What's Chris Piper doing on Monday nights?

Anymore I can't think of anyone I want to hear less than Fran. At one time Dick Vitale and Bill Walton were on the list. And, back in the day, Jon Sundvold, when he used to work for ESPN, although mostly I got upset when they had him calling KU vs MU games where the bias was blatant and obvious with him being a former MU player. But now Fran takes the cake. He sucks

Fran, Walton, and Vitale take it running away.  Doris Burke is someone I've never liked.

Bill Walton is a National Treasure and I will refuse to believe anyone who says other wise.

I get why people don't like Vitale. I don't really like when he calls KU games, but I like his enthusiasm. And I'm okay that he's become more a character than person. Walton's many times like a talk radio host...he loves to troll the play-by-play and audience. But he can be funny and entertaining at times. I agree about Sundvold.

Fran posting on his Twitter feed "Honest thoughts".

If you are smart Kansas fan, you know that me, opposing coaches & Coach Self know visiting team must be 10 points better: Great coach, players & crowd + human nature by SOME officials. Will never change.




I wish my hand vibrated.

Re: Fran Frascilla

Does Fran speak English?




I believe, but I'm also an "independent thinker."  Quite a conundrum.

Re: Fran Frascilla

Does Fran think that the same thing doesn't happen in other filled basketball arenas? It's called homecourt advantage.

How about the comments about some missed calls in the managers game?  Specifically a couple "travels on the Kansas managers".

It was a joke. Playing off the Svi travel from last year.

I was right about Fran.

Re: Fran Frascilla

Amazed me that Fran couldn't even run through a list of Devonte's contributions to " the streak" without mentioning Buddy Heild.

Re: Fran Frascilla

He's a good guy.

He gets hated on a lot, but that goes with the territory. Most of us complain about all the announcers..Walton Vitale. Hell even Bilas gets annoying and I'm a big fan of his.

It's just not an easy job. Plus a lot of fans are VERY sensitive about anything and everything that has to do with their team.

Re: Fran Frascilla

Is it just me or has Fran been more tolerable the last two games?
