    I mute all who call the Zag games unless it's the home town crew tho I'll listen to Walton call other games. I don't mind him but can't stand Bilas

    Dear God, ESPN get rid of Walton. He's terrible. Doesn't even know what's going on it the game.

    It's almost like the game is a distraction to these guys.

    Jason made a comment at the start about his career being on the line working with Walton.

    Walton is horrible tonight, even for him...........

    I knew we were in for a long night when the show opens with Walton doing the hula. No way to unsee that image.

    Came to watch basketball, and I ended up learning about volcanoes. Can’t say I have had that experience before when watching a game...

    How true...one of life's mysteries. It's one thing when he rambles on about everything but the game at hand. However, tonight he won't even allow the other guy to do his job! I would say, without a doubt, this is the worst "performance" from Walton I have ever heard.

    Anybody know how many turnovers the Zags had the 1st half? I ran out of fingers.

    Bill Walton isn't good, but it is pretty hilarious hearing the interaction with him and Benetti.

    That was the worst watching experience I’ve had in 23 years of watching Gonzaga Basketball. Bill Walton is the worst announcer I have ever heard. Miss me with his “schtick”, he’s a bumbling idiot and I never want to sit through that again. Thank God we won.

    Do not like Walton as an announcer! That was just agonizing!

    After the 5 minute diatribe about Volcanoes in the first half... Bill had me thinking about our boy Heister

    "That guy should play more" (referring to Jeremy Jones)-- the only thing he said all night that I liked. I don't get what the production director and ESPN are thinking with this guy. It is as if they thought they were here to put on a travel show and a basketball game broke out. If they were going to do that they should at least have the decency to get Brooke Burke in there. They should muzzle Walton! Wild on Basketball or send him on a really long bike ride to his favorite volcano. It was hard enough to watch all of the ticky tack foul calls and to have it narrated by Dazed and Confused Walton was almost too much.

    Walton legitimately did not know that both feet had to be entirely outside the restricted area on the block/charge call. As a professional basketball player and announcer, I honestly do not know how this is possible.

    Walton asked Jason what his name was 7 times during the game (once after calling him Jim).

    And the fact he says breeds every day was an imagine I can't shake off.

    i do not understand the person who likes Walton, as a commentator. and I too wonder, how on earth does he have a job with a microphone in front of his mouth?

    lets be honest, a play happens, any play, and the first thing he does is make up a reason to be critical. why? again the reason is obvious he has the biggest head on the planet.
    well I could go on............but i'll leave it at this.
