    Once again, I suggest the annual Heister-inoculation protocol. You can watch a couple Best in Show clips and it should get you through the season, or you can take the full antibiotic treatment by watching the entire movie:

    Heister pronounces Hachimura as the Quick Facts suggests. I guess Rui is the only source to double check. I wondered about the “t” sound too.

    The solution to Heister is Sam Adams.

    Heister would do well with the Monster Truck Jam Circuit.

    I agree. I like the Adams-Fox combo.

    I think the broadcast is an embarrassment. I like Dikau's insight and it is always repeated by Fox. The fact that they feel like they need to ridicule Heister is an embarrassment to Television and Sports broadcasting! STFU to Dickau and Fox....you are not smarter or more clever than Heister!

    Really? this is entertainment, period! Turn down your volume if you don't like it. it's not like he's commentating on brain surgery. Half his stuff is just silly and funny.

    The trio used to grate on my nerves. I don't know if they've improved, or I'm just able to ignore them for the most part, but they don't really bother me anymore. 3 is an awkward number for a broadcast team though, 2 is plenty.

    I know I've mentioned it before, Heister does some work for Pac 12 Network, I've seen/heard him doing Washington St. women's hoops games and he does some baseball as well. His delivery when working for Pac 12 Network is very different and could be described as more professional. Maybe it's what he thinks the audience wants during GU games? IDK.

    Ah, I realized I inoculated myself for life by taking in too many games that Bill Walton was calling. ANYTHING is better compared to that, Heister, Dickie V., anything. I know Walton has his fans, but I'm not one of them. Ridiculous random drivel that has nothing to do with anything, every game, all game long.

    Really enjoy Adam with Hudson. Wouldn't be a bit surprised if Adam becomes a TV color commentator on the West Coast circuit. That guy is good! Very impressive, he is. And will continue to grow.

    Walton seems to act as if none of us would be entertained by watching the actual game. When he's at the helm it seems more like Mystery Science Theater 3000 or the Rocky Horror Picture Show than sports viewing.

    I take more issue with the production. The introduction and graphics on the Mark Few Show could be done better by a high school audio/visual class. When we watch the games it is a given there will be some type of technical issue. One of the games had sound issues with the volume going up and down throughout the game. For the viewership and probably high revenue they generate with advertising on the Gonzaga games we certainly aren’t getting our money’s worth....but then what do they care, we watch anyway because we have n9 other options.

    Please provide tangible and verifiable proof that intro/graphics are not being done by a high school class. Until then...let's just say I'm skeptical.
