Bill also added factual commentary - even if LSU facts involved prep
- Wasn't Mamadou Ndiaye in NBA playing for Raptors?
- He was a good player at Auburn.
- How many Mamadou Ndiayes are there?...
| Tiger Rant|| re: I Enjoyed Bill Walton 's Commentary - YellowShoe on 3/20/14 at 7:19 am|
How many fans knew that Dignity was written by Bob Dylan with Pistol Pete in mind?
That gem alone made the whole commentary worth it.
In addition, he treated it like a game. No whining. No bias. Smooth.

Do the same with every other coach that has an in-home visit.

You should. Les as a coach is a 'leader of men'. We provide these players with some advantages
- training to be a leader on the field
- ability to speak in public (via interviews)
If the players follow their coach to a conclusion that is regressive, would yo...

On Paul Finebaum's show (Mon 2/3), Finebaum started the show discussing A.J.McCaron's interviews on various shows. A.J. was on Jim Rome and Dan Patrick's show. A.J. commented that younger players did not appreciate the effort it took to be good. That comment got A.J. in Finebaum's crosshairs.

You should ask them where they lived? There are some minor 'bridges' on the way to the campus on Burbank and Nicholson that I could take and avoid I-10. Police had these streets closed.
