Cheesy considering WKU is playing. Finally some Overtime action, but they'll probably break away to give me the crappy Georgetown game.

Man. The Drake/WKU announcing team is putting me to sleep. The only thing keeping me going is Gus Johnson screaming in my ear "AND FROM SIIIIIIIX-TEEEEEEN DOWN, DRAKE TIES THE GAME! UNBELIEVABLE!" (Via Anon)
Tell me about it. Brando had no inflection when Young hit the game tying three and it was awesome.
"Oh It's so good to be Young and outstanding." - Tim Brando (Via Joe D)
OHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now we're talking! WKU with the buzzer beater!!!
Video will be up in five and I think that game alone has rejuvenated me.
Brando called Klayton Korver "Kyle" toward the end of regulation. (Via Anon)
Is there any way possible to get Gus to call every single game?
Verne and Bill don't know they're on right now. They keep clearing their throats. Asking for stats about South AL vs. Western KY (Via Anon)
Someone should market the offense of Austin Peay and the announcing of Ian Eagle as a cure for insommnia. (Via Scott)
John Thompson is calling the UMBC-Georgetown game for Westwood One. Am I the only one that sees a conflict of interest here? (Via Bruce)
I loved how Nantz and Packer joked that he probably requested it.

Well, I just want to congratulate the CBS production crew during the post-halftime stat recap. As they were coming back from break, the camerman was focused on the cheerleaders of Texas, and continued to move down and down until it became about a 7 second ass shot of the UT cheerleaders. Bless you CBS for making something good out of UT-APSU... (Via Radioman)
Why do I always miss the good stuff?
"This ain't Carmen Sandiego!"- Tim Brando (Via Spartan Dan)
Learn to subtract, Brando. 59-56 does not mean UConn can tie with a 2 or win with a 3. (Spartan Dan)
"And we're tied."- Tim Brando (Via Joe D)
Since when does 59=58? (Via Anon)
"A chance to tie with a 2 and win with a 3"...when the score is 59-56, Brando? (Via Jim Williams)
Good lord he is having a terrible day.
