Buccigross has no business doing play by play. But worse is that mullet-wearing fraud ESPN keeps as an analyst. For a guy who played in the NHL and then coached there, by simple osmosis you should know more than he apparently does. Forget being educated on college rules. Even ESPN gets guys for the regionals who can convey analysis. Billy Jaffe, for example. All this clown can do is sit in a studio with Neil Bleeping Everett and share lazy observations and cliches that any half-wit viewer can toss out after watching the replay.


Never been much of a fan of ESPNs coverage of the regionals

but all four of the color announcers this year blew Melrose away. He's a clown, a poor man's Dick Vitale, but without the endless shilling for our sport. Next year it might be different at least, since the rumors are ESPN is about to go through same draconian cuts due to declining revenue and Melrose and Buccigross are probably not going to be ESPN employees much longer.


Agree - that's why I alluded to getting rid of him...

it sounds like they're dumping a lot of that over-hyped self-infatuated junk in Bristol and I can't imagine why they'd keep him.


But he liked our gold helmets .....
