I know one of them was Jay Bilas, I did not catch the name of the other one. Anyway, I thought the announcing tonight was absolutely awful. Which ever team scored, became the "best team in the Nation." That's annoying on it's own, but to add on to it, they would not give credit to where credit was due. I recall several times where Morgan was playing tough, "Big Ten D," and stopped Sullinger from scoring. But everytime, it was a foul according to Bilas. Adding on to my last point, they thought anything close to a foul, should've ben called. Example, Sullinger had a nice move around Morgan to score, and Bilas thought Sullinger should have been called for the foul. Then when Burke/Morgan blocked Craft at the end. Bilas said "thats Big Ten basketball right there," kind of contradicting himself. It was not a foul, but the fact that Bilas wanted everything called, was not "Big Ten basketball." I dont know, maybe I'm over exaggerating, but it was nearly impossible to listen to, and I find it very hard to watch, while the TV is muted. Just thought I would state my opinion. Anyway, they don't matter because Michigan played a hell of game. I'm pumped for the both tourneys and I pray that Michigan wins out though. It will be tough but wouldn't that be something?
