Would it hurt for those idiots to share some stats? Like how many fouls there were and on which players. Maybe a graphic? I had to go on line to find out though cbssports.com had Black with 5 fouls for Memphis and still playing. The announcers provided only witless drivel.
They build the number of timeouts into the score logo. I would much rather see that space used to show number of team fouls up to the bonus. Who cares if a team has 4 or 5 timeouts left.
I don't care who the announcers are, as long as MSU wins.

Anyone else think Gottlieb is actually a decent announcer? He isn't afraid to call out the refs which is always a big plus in my books.

"losing Caleb Benenoch is a blow that Dantonio will never recover from. Izzo has lost it as well. Hoke and Beilein own the state."
Yup...and don't forget about Jim Delany's behind the scene machinations as well.

The dude is a complete douchebag, but it is pretty cool hearing him go off on refs when it is needed.
Your a retard.
You're right, he's been on over the last week with his analysis of how strong the Big Ten is, and how weak other conferences are, and it's always refreshing to have an announcer tell it like it is and not blindly agree with the officials. As far as Raftery/Verne, I didn't think they were as bad, as much as they were annoying. Some of them are pretty biased though. Remember when Appling drew the charge on Burke? Tirico sounded bitter as hell, and sounded like he wanted to murder the official.

I get tired of hearing how announcers were "slurping" the opposition all game, and never said anything good about MSU, when I remember hearing a LOT of praise for Izzo and various Spartans, as well as praise for the opposition -- that was called for.
Oddly enough, folks, occasionally the opposition does earn praise. We just beat them anyway.
Thank you, Denicos.
I love it when they call out the refs for obvious mistakes, but that was ridiculous when they were taking them to task for not calling a goal tend on AP when it looked like a good block while at the same time zipping up on the no call of the Memphis goal tend
I hate that I have been almost enjoying his commentary.
I don't get why Clark Kellog doesn't get more heat. He offers absolutely nothing to the game.

Back in the 1999 regional final when MSU beat UK to go to Izzo's first Final Four, didn't Izzo's father approach Billy Packer and rip him a new one for being such a Kentucky suck-up ass-kisser?
