I don't really get the Dick Vitale hate. I understand Digger hate, Billy Packer hate, and obviously Doug Gottleib hate, but Dick Vitale is a genuinely great person and isn't a bad announcer. He is unique in his style and offers a good perspective of the game, and especially it's people. He reminds me alot of Mitch Holthus in how he knows so many people from all the small towns in Kansas, and can name any high school mascot in this state - and many others across the midwest.

Good post. I don't really hate Digger, either. Now Packer and Gottleib are annoying. They are nearly unbearable at times.

Ditto... if you don't like his style, whatever... but the guy forgets more about basketball daily than anyone else here could ever hope to know.

The few times I've seen Dickie V in person he's been really cool and gracious.

I always kind of liked Vitale. I met him at the Guardian's Classic last year and he was awesome.

Yeah, I had an opportunity to hang out with him for a weekend and found him to be extremely genuine and one hell of a nice guy.

You know...he bugs sometimes...especially when he gushes over Coach K.

But the bottom line is...he is a good person, a great ambassador for college sports (preaches staying in school, etc.)....and has a genuine love for the game and people.

If he was a pretentious prick like Packer....that would be another story...but he seems to be genuine.
