    Uh, Walton just called Conroy the key guy from UW's last great team. So...Roy and NRob weren't on that team?

    He has used the phrase "Conference of Champions" twice. The O/U is 4.5.

    I took the over. . .

    Oh, he'll definitely go over 4.5.


    Did you ever meet Nikita Kruschev? That's a bit random even for Bill, but he was inspired by Petrusev.

    It seems like Roxy wants to call the game, and Bill just won't shut up. Can we switch the game over to ROOT?

    I think Roxy is willing to play along w/ Bill's weirdness, which is why this partnership works and the Walton/Pasch duo was a train wreck.

    Speaking of ROOT, the 3 Stooges can get really off track and onto tangents as well. Not as frequently, but still...

    This.

    It's malpractice what they're doing. His schtick doesn't bother me that much in small doses, but they really are missing a great game. Would love a little play by play.

    My wife bailed on watching the game ... opted to listen to Hudson and Morrison on the radio and go out for a walk/run

    Living in Georgia I get excited when the Zags are on national TV so I can watch in the comfort of my theater room instead of at my computer desk.....and then they throw Bill Walton in there!!!! The guy was an amazingly good basketball player and an amazingly BAD announcer!! WHY does nobody on the network understand this? IMO the best announcers are like the best referees, after the game is over you don't even remember who they were!!! It SHOULD be about the game!!!!

    Sorry Zags fans, but I have to listen to Walton all the time. You'll get thru this.

    This has been an entertaining game. Several times Zags looked on the verge of blowing it wide open, but UW responded every time. Haven't been able to tie or take the lead though. I think everyone in Hec Ed is getting their money's worth tonight.

    He mentioned Mark Conroy as not being the one who wrote about The Citadel-that was an easy one as PAT Conroy wrote the book about The Citadel!

    Let us NEVER complain about Heister, Fox and Dickau. The ESPN announcers, especially Wayward Walton, were the WORST ever. I cannot stand Walton.
    He goes off on rabbit trails and free wandering thought and speech. For large chunks of the game, they weren't even announcing the game. I can't believe
    ESPN pays these guys. Of course, I can't believe ESPN doing a lot of things that totally irritate sports fans.

    I had it muted the whole game, except when the Zags made a basket. Can't stand Walton. He was talking about Bill Russell for what seemed like 10 minutes. The guy is a joke. Very disappointing.

    Bill could probably do it, when he is in shape he's has good endurance on a bike.

    I like Walton, but during the 1st half his on and on and on stories of the great Bill Russel were tiresome at best. During that 5 minute stretch, there hardly was a mention of what was taking place right in front of his eyes.

    I don't usually like Bill's commentary but he was classic tonight. He does his research and he does know basketball. I loved the segue to Danny Ainge's golf score from Lunardis fluid predictions.
