Ohio State.......our nuts will kill you
The last statement comparing Barkley to mark May and it not being a compliment was great. Also, you can clearly tell who Dougherty is talking about. He stressed the "turrible" comment. Not to mention, Barkley is looking stupid saying one conference who has no Sweet 16 teams is better than another conference who has 25% of the Sweet 16 field.
Know why "hilarious" is such a funny word? Because it's hilarious.
As much as i agree that barkley knows nothing about college basketball... it has to be hard to sound knowledgable abt the nba, and turn around and speak on the state of college basketball.... the network, put him in a tough spot... i cant blame him for picking up a extra check, but he's completely incorrect and bias with his perception of the big ten in regards to basketball!!! I love his thoughts on the nba, but college basketball is a different sport... it should be covered by college basketball experts, not casual observants... if not u run the risk, of someone saying something ignorant like "the big ten is overrated"

Nice work by Awful Announcing. He wasn't even calling out Barkley, he was calling out CBS for putting him on the air.

You can't blame the network for what he is saying. He made the claim that the Mountain West and Pac 12 are better in basketball this year than the B1G. Even though every Mountain West team is now out and only 2 Pac 12 teams left compared to 4 B1G teams he is still maintaining his position that the B1G sucks. He has openly said that the B1G is vastly over rated. He keeps repeating it. That is not the network. That is on Barkley.

Dude says things for publicity and get people talking. Im not sure he believes half of what he says, kind of like Mark May. Its all about the ink and pub. He is just waiting for someone else to win it other than the big 10 and then he will say I told you so.
Sorry to be rude, I have been living In New York now for 15 years, so i might have lost some manners!
The Big Ten In Football is humiliated in the press for being the " 3rd worst football conference"! its partially true, but not fair or nice!
News flash: The SEC IS THE 7th worst basketball conference! They SUCK! But do you EVER hear any criticism about how Horrible the SEC IS????? We can all sit around like stooges and debate about " how good" The Big Ten is. But that is my point! Why are we? Name a a comparable league, or a better CONFERENCE in basketball. You cannot! So if you are going to bad the underperforming in football, like the press seems to have an open season on, why not EXPOSE THE SEC?

Barkley has a pretty good insight into basketball. I've heard him discuss the game and give very pointed analysis that was against the grain in what the herd mentality were promoting and he was right. Its why it seems so strange to hear him be so anti-big ten. He has to be able to see these are good teams and that this is the best conference in college basketball.He knows basketball and is good at calling it. So where the hell did this come from? He is not only catastrophically face planting WRONG but its not even close. Its crazy drunken whino bum wearing his underwear outside his pants crazy.
Makes no sense.

This is all about maximizing ratings. Ohio State has been an elite program for so long and a Christian, Hardworking, Brilliant, Leader who happens to be white,Aaron Craft also generates a strong reaction, People that are wired to love and hate Ohio State will listen to this preplanned debate on CBS because people talk about, viewership goes up and they get paid more for advertising because of ratings. Follow the money!!
This is as predictable as Mark May on ESPN in football and it is good business even if it lacks true insight and integrity.
If you do not like them, turn the channel. That is the way to get even. Better yet turn on you teams radio for people that are more familiar with the teams and give better insight.
When the former elite programs suck for a while ....UCLA basketball......UM Football and noboby calls them out , that is when fans of such teams have a real issue.
