I like Gus just for the entertainment value. I can enjoy him while getting nothing from a PbP perspective when watching on TV. I can't imagine he's that great at PbP for soccer because he's new to it and it doesn't really lend itseld to his style. If you were just listening, I have no clue why you expected to know what was going on from TV PbP.
That being said, Criqui gets picked on now because he is awful. He does radio PbP like he's on TV. He did the ND/UConn women's bball game on TV and was absolutely horrendous in any context. He needs to retire.
