    I thought we hated Dickie V? He’s a Duke and UNC lover.

    1) Why does everyone say that? He loves us just as much.

    Vitale isn’t just a Duke/UNC lover. The guy, in general, loves college basketball. He loves the coaches and the players. The guys lives and breathes it. Love him or hate him for it, he just loves all of College Basketball and also tends to have their side when they have issues with the NCAA. He is cool in my book…. although sometimes he can get a bit annoying.

    He loves the power programs for their consistency, tradition, and typically passionate fan bases. This is why he loves UK, Duke, UNC, and the like. If you ever read/watch any of his analysis’ over recent year he has been a huge UK and Cal supporter. Gave Dan Lebetard the business last year when he suggested Cal has was/still is a cheat. Dickie V is def. a supporter of everything UK (minus 3 goggles)

    Dickie V was in Bowling Green for a WKU / Louisville game when I was a student at WKU and as he walked across the floor a student next to me yelled “You suck Vitale.” Of course Dickie couldn’t tell where it came from or who said it so he simply reached in his pocket and pulled out a big ole roll of money, raised it up in the air, and yelled back “That’s why I’m down here and you’re up there.”

    Classic Dickie V.

    Vitale does love hoops, but he is also a bandwagon jumper, which gets anoying when he is on the Dook or Craple Hill wagon. He needs to be kept away from that sad-sack Tipton.

    Screw Dookie V. He blasted us during the Tubby era and loves everything Duke. He’s always on Coach K’s jock. He can leave Lexington right now and never come back for all I care. BBN stand up against this old creep.

    Dickie V is great! Long live Dickie V. No one has the passion and enthusiasm for the college game like he does. And no one has his style and flair. He’s great for the game we love.

    Dickie V is great for college basketball and if you can’t respect his knowledge and love for the game then something is wrong with you. He’s here for our alumni game and people are still dissing him…awesome guys

    RYNO don’t you have another teams fans to go annoy? or better yet, a team of your own to support? Must be terrible

    People hate anyone who’s ever said anything positive about another team outside of UK, that crap really gets annoying, he loves BASKETBALL as a whole

    Dickie V can shove a poolstick up his arse. I hate that man and never want to see him anywhere near our program. People forget how he threw us under the bus so many times. The duke stuff is just over the top. Any UK follower that likes Dickie V is not a true blue-blooded UK fan. That includes you fat Matt.

    KSR loves Dickie V. UK fans do not.

    I’m a UK fan, have been my whole life and I like Dickie V just fine. Really don’t need anyone to tell me who I can and cannot like, and saying people who like Dickie V aren’t real UK fans is so ignorant I don’t even know what to call you people. Seriously, what dictatorship are we in where we aren’t allowed to like a broadcaster or else we aren’t real fans? You do realize how stupid that sounds right? Calipari and him are friends and Calipari INVITED him here for the alumni game, guess you guys should hate Calipari then…

    Have any of you close minded idiots not heard the praise Vitale has given UK since Calipari has been here and turned the program around? So many media members bash us and we have the most famous broadcaster in college athletics here supporting Calipari because he was invited here and look at all your responses, it’s really embarrassing, just like when UK fans bash on kids that don’t choose to come here, sometime i’m ashamed of the BBN and that really sucks to say
