Rob, one of the benefits of CBS having the tourney is no Vitale, and Verne and Bill are a solid team usually. But Raftery HATES Ohio State and it gets really old. The last Sunday afternoon CBS game he did, every time the refs let something slide for OSU he was crying for a foul. Then if the opponent got whistled they should have let them play. He was absolutely insufferable calling the NIT title game a couple of years back. The whole theme of the game was UMass this and that until late when it was apparent the Bucks were gonna win and then not much was said. I used to really like him but he absolutely trashes Ohio State...

I'm going to have to agree with 6-man on disliking Raftery. My reason is slightly different. Before I ever had a chance to notice his "issues" with Ohio State, I was too annoyed with his antics. I canNOT stand how he will be talking normally and then all of a sudden he screams something that sounds like "Adububdubadba!!!!" I think it's ridiculous that he thinks it sounds good when he does this. Then you hear whoever is broadcasting with him giggling. I want to smack them for encouraging him when he is doing this. Just annoying

Hopefully CBS doesn't cut to another game. I don't live in Columbus, and CBS typically does this when OSU plays.
Where I live, this year one game they cut away from OSU with FIFTEEN MINUTES still left in the 2nd half and went to a Florida/Tennessee game that was a blowout and still had almost 13 minutes left. By they way, I live MUCH closer to Columbus than I do to either of those locales. The OSU/Michigan State game was not broadcast until the 2nd half. Last year's tourney game was cut out for another game. Keeping my fingers crossed that I will actually get to see all of this year's games they play. I will happily listen to Raferty's jibberish scream/talk if I can watch the entire games.

The only thind worse than Dick Vitale is having to listen to Bill Rafftery. He is a complete and total jerk wad. He despises Ohio State and makes it obvious when he goes one-sided in his comments. I don't think that anyone should be a homer in tournaments. If an announcer starts blatantly pulling for either team, they should lose the right to call any game. It really is getting old.

Let me guess, for entertainment you read books and take walks. M is for moron, that is what people who comment about sports tournaments being worthless on a sports page are.

Why are you spending time on this page? Do you feel really insecure? Does it make you feel better to criticize others?
