    Cory talks a lot. Not just about himself, but about other things unrelated to the game he is "announcing."

    Have you ever listened to a game where Dick Vitale was announcing?

    Vitale made me crazy for decades, but his passion for college basketball and love of the game is indisputable. I was happy to see a clip from him on the ESPN site this week.

    Agree with both sentiments. What drove me crazy was that he did not announce games per se....he had the same schtick every single game...told most of the same stories, waited for the moments to drop in the very same Vitalisms...praised the same coaches (...Robert Montgomery Knight...et al) and only spoke of the game in progress in between all the other.

    That said, no one loves the game more than he, and it helped grow the sport, especially on ESPN. And he was very familiar with Coach K even in the very early years at Duke. And a K supporter from day one it seems. So I do NOT like watching games on TV he is doing....but I greatly appreciate what he brought to Duke and to the game over the years.

    The Andrews Sisters are taking over ESPN like it's The Mike Douglas Show, circa 1965.
