I'm guessing this is already posted on one of the lengthy pre-game threads. If not .. here it is. And if so, please let me know and I'll move this "iconic" post/jab (which is actually pretty tame/and truthful) by Heister.

As long as UNC isn't allowed too many possessions where they are clearly out of bounds on the baseline I think the Zags win this one and avenge the loss in Phoenix!

I cannot believe that Heister would be engaging in such middle school nonsense..

I have seen this "Greg Heister" post on other opponent message boards throughout the season.

It really does sound like him; however I wonder if it's just someone's persona/avatar channeling Heister's style & commentary?

Either way, it's entertaining, and honest.

I laughed at the few posts I've seen from "Greg" on other boards as well.

Knowing Heister his username would be Greg Heister so wouldn't be surprised if it's actually him.

Heister is the laughing stock of sports broadcasting and an idiot to boot. He de-legitimizes Gonzaga, the brand, and the reputation that everyone else has worked so hard to build. I honestly cannot figure out why someone, anyone, has not said "umm yeah thanks for the past ... but we're going to upgrade our quality."

Wow! Have you had a legal dispute with Heister? I can certainly relate to not being a fan (I’m with you there). But calling the man an idiot? The evidence doesn’t support that conclusion. He’s a successful broadcaster who has done well with the Mark Few show, various other outdoor shows and documentaries and does ok in interviews.

The whole broadcasting crew needs to work on what to do when games get out of hand. I used to think it was unprofessional until Walton came along and set the bar so low, but it still isn’t great TV to hear them tease each other about just everything they can think of (attire, grades, defense, etc).

Laughing stock seems pretty harsh...

Exactly. Yes, I'm not a fan of him as a broadcaster, but there's no way he'd be doing something like this. Still, kudos to whomever is running the parody account - it is funny.

Goofy, yes, but by no means an idiot.

But no one else knows who he is, so what's the point of creating a fake account when no one knows the real one except us? I've seen his name on the Illinois board i think.

I find it lighthearted and in good cheer.

He has posted on other message boards prior to our games, and he doesn't offend, troll, or negative.

I understand it's a joke of sorts, but it's subtle and well done. Only to be appreciated -- or not -- by a select few.

Avatars are avatars for a reason.

I vote for fake account. This part didn't feel real,

I talked this game over on another broadcast with my buddies Dan Dickau and Richard Fox. Zags were winning by 40 and we'd talked plenty about Zion's dunks in the previous half. Zags and Heels are a great matchup! Both teams like to get up and down the floor! Should be a ton of 3s! Bang!

But, I'm not at all confident of my vote.

Heister says "bang" a handful of times every game.

Well played by this poster.

Nails him in writing no less.

Wish Heister would post on this board.

Doing well. Has his priorities straight and I don't think GU Boards is anywhere close to the top of the list.

Good to hear. Miss his presence and wit.

He had nearly 15000K posts when he stopped posting, so Guboards certainly has fallen down the priority list.

No dispute, I just strive for quality and despise mediocrity. He's a low quality, low caliber, glorified radio DJ who adds nothing in the way of intelligence, entertainment or content to a perennial top 25 team and the unfortunates who get paired up with him make fun of him live on air because they can... because hes too dumb to get it. So yeah, idiot.

Gonzaga should be ashamed to have such an anchor pulling them down even if its just for the local broadcasts.

I will give you the Mark Few show for almost being tolerable... until he interviews someone lol. I've heard worse interviewers, but if you put aside his bland fake persona and pick up on the communications side of it, he uses answers to ask questions, which is a terrible technique. But the show does give us a semi-insiders look so I enjoy that part.

Naw, I just dont settle for known inferiority. Heister aside, it baffles me how GU doesnt want to upgrade their broadcasts to the highest level possible. The pregame radio from Meehan sounds like they have their microphones set up in an echoing bathroom. Low budget podcasts have five times the end quality that 1510 puts out and I cant image GU is happy to put their name on stuff like that. A college intern sound engineer should be able to set them up and modulate the output to double the sound quality in 20 minutes of work.

No he doesn't. He does an excellent job and his audience reviews are exceptional which is why he is still calling GU games.
