    First three games will be sweet. However if DirecTV doesn’t do something fast I will have to go elsewhere to watch the last three since it’s carried by SEC Network. C’mon DirecTV!!!!!!

    #4, why the hate? Jay Bilas seems like one of the most genuine guys in CBB analysis, even if he is a dirty Blue Devil. I’d be totally down to get a couple of beer with him.

    I know that look. Looks like a barker is taking it from behind.

    Back in the day, when someone ‘called’ a game it was the referee. I will assume that you mean that Bilas will be doing the play-by-play ‘calling’.

    Bilas has always been consistent in his remarks. Agree or not with his observations, they are usually presented with the reasons he used to make them. Not just knee jerk or empty rants.

    Don’t you just love Demarcus! No wonder he is SO good with kids. That smile just projects a good soul

    Bilas is well educated. His observations usually has a lot of thought. I like him because he doesn’t ramble like Vitale, Packer or Kellogg. Duke still sucks.

    Not so fast. With Paul George going down, I may ask Bilas to join our team. We’ll need him that week to start getting some reps.

    Really excited about this! Bilas is the best in the business.

    Assuming our guys play well, it means we should have Bilas talking us up all season long on ESPN.

    Over/Under on tweets/signs about how Jay Bilas should be commissioner of college basketball?
