He could be a bear on Selection Sunday.   He did Raycom games back in the day didn't he?

Frankly, he always came across as an elitist, blue-blood snob. Teams from the SEC, Big Ten or ACC who struggled to reach .500 all season deserved a tourney nod over mid major conference champion winners like a Valparaiso, Davidson or even a Gonzaga. To me, he became unlistenable around the mid 90s. Raftery was a much better ‘get’ to provide the in-game commentary. Apparently Packer stopped following CBB altogether and instead spent his time watching ultimate fighting and kickboxing.

There was a time where Billy and Dickie V did games together.  AT times they could be more entertaining than the game.

 

RIP Billy.

One of his more infamous gripes was in 2006, I think. The CAA got several teams in the dance, which he thought was an injustice to the middling power conference teams. Then George Mason made it to the Final Four.

 

As he liked to say, he was "often wrong, but never in doubt."

Annie Wersching died last week. Only 45. Best known to me for playing Renee Walker on 24. By far the hottest chick Jack banged on the show.

Lol. Whatever. It was a real gut punch when I saw it. Too young, a mother to kids. Stand by the levity and nod to her beauty.

That is terrible.  45 years old and leaving behind a young family sucks.

Trugoy (Plug 2) from De La Soul passed away yesterday. DLS was one of my favorite rap groups and they were still performing together. Way too young to die. RIP
I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?
