Ugh… Dan Dakich to call The Basketball Tournament for ESPN

The Basketball Tournament had so much potential. It really did. Big Blue Nation was ready to watch some of our old favorites play for the winner-take-all $2 million cash.

But our excitement took a hit with the recent news that Dan Dakich will call the games for ESPN. Dan Dakich, who openly hates Kentucky, will be the voice we hear as Ramel kicks it to Joe for a slam. Dan Dakich, who picked the Indiana alumni team to win it, will be the voice we hear when Shagari goes for a double-double and takes MVP honors in the title game. Dan Dakich, Dan f*cking Dakich, will steal our joy. Bank on that.

Along with Dakich, ESPN will have Doug Sherman and Fran Fraschilla. Oh, and Jeff Goodman reporting from the sideline.

It had so much potential.


Bluegrass Boys tip off tomorrow at 6:45 ET. You can watch it online here. The ESPN coverage takes over next weekend.

Dan Dakich.

    He is a total train-wreck classless individual; and, he still has me blocked on Twitter.
    He guarded Michael Jordan once; wow, he sure didn’t guard him in the NBA; and, his coaching record speaks for itself_____mediocrity in repetition.
    I guess I’ll have to rely on telling ESPN what a mental midget he is.

    He’s just the worst kind of person. He criticizes Matt Jones and KSR for being homers, and yet his head is so far up Tom Crean’s ass, he tastes it when Crean kisses his son the mouth.

    Heard the featured sponsor will be Desenex. Afterall, when you got Dikitch, what else could it be?

    I’m used to muting ESPN. Nothing new here. Unless it is Bilas it is instantly muted and even Bilas went into anti-UK mode 1 game last year.
