He said Trice got the benefit of a terrible call.
He subtly ripped the refs all game, but none quite a clearly as that call.
Said absolutely nothing but the truth
I agree, i'm sick of announcers who bend over backwards to defend bad officiating.
He had a rant about charging calls when a bad one went in our favor.
He called out the T on Nix.
I think the part on Trice's charge is that he was just calling out how they are called in teh college game. I don't think it had anything to do with which team got called. I had stepped out for a minute and came back to him bitching about the call. I didn't even know MSU got the benefit of the doubt, he was just going off on how charges are handed out like candy. Had nothing to do with MSU.
Bilas is my favorite announcer, I think I watch games he is calling just to hear what he has to say. I would love if he coached somewhere and did the same thing.
Bilas could have been a hell of a coach. And probably a great recruiter.

qft...can't blame him for announcing though. It's easy for him, but he's so GOOD as well. He's one of the few I don't have to 'mute' these days. Truth.
It was a bad call, but it was only equal to UT hitting a shot after the shot clock expired. As far as I'm concerned, I want every call to go our way just to make up for all the BS during football season.
About the only thing you can hope for these days is that the calls go evenly bad against both teams.
He assisted on the 91 and 92 championship teams at Duke, then decided he wanted to practice law.
Bilas hides it very well, but is still a very active and prominent Dukie.
Anyone. Anyplace. Anytime.
No importa que bilas o parker que escuela van. lo unico que le puedo decir es que soy 100% AMERICANISTA!!! Y QUE SIEMPRE VOY AL VERDER Y BLANCO!!!! VAMOS MSU!!!
He didn't go to law school to coach a mid-major. He's pretty active at Duke, because he practices law in Charlotte. He's not anymore active in Duke Basketball than you would expect a former player/assistant to be.
The guy could easily take an assistant job for a year, and then get a decent mid-major or better job. Of course, between his multiple careers, I highly doubt he'd be making as much money in college basketball until he was 5 years in, and was successful.
Good for him. He can and should give back to the institution that gave him a full ride scholarship.
How does he have the time to practice law, write for espn, drop in on sportscenter, and do games?
After all, Tanner's here 24/7/365.
I read the news today, oh boy .. ..
About a lucky man who made the grade
Then you haven't seen them very much.
“Kansas may wind up number one in these polls, but that would be so unfair to Texas...” -- Len Elmore, 2/13/11
You're right just when they play MSU and in the last two MSU wins over them Texas chucked up 29 and 25 3's.
And in the last two Texas wins, which were the two most recent, they tried 16 and 13. What is your point?
Barnes is consistently an overrated coach. Easiest person to bet against.
What is that, a Titleist? A hole in one...
He said so himself that he rather put players in the NBA then win championships.
He may have interns posting and bots. It's possible
Here is Tanner's set up.
No, that's not what he said.
It would have been hard to say what he meant to say in a worse way, though.
