Underrated: Bill Johnson, UWM

Best: Uecker (I said it Chopp)I also like Larravee (back in his Bear days can't say i listen much now but he calls a GREAT game.)

Worst: All in all can't complain that much. I think we are pretty lucky to have the talent we have.

Overrated: Tie: Lucas and Lepay and McCarren

Underrated: Homer and Jimmy Mac they know their stuff and I like the excitment.

Bonus underrated: The golden chopps of the MU women's hoops tandem of Sommerfeld and matera. Those guys call a great game.

? Ted Davis- Oh yeah he's the bucks guy. ihear good things but can't say first hand.

I take that back I can't stand Bill Johnson. Thank you Ringo for reminding me. I can not listen to ESPN anytime he is on the air. HORRIBLE

Matt said...

Worst is McGlocklin and Paschke, hands down.

Nubs said...

Again bucks related so I can not comment. sorry. But Matt in your defense you live in a satellite radio world and do not have to drive around SE Wisconsin listening to Johnson in the afternoons.

Ringo said...

Oh I agree, Johnson sucks on 540. Pathetic.

But I'm a UWM alum, had to give a shout out.

Nubs said...

That's fair Ringo

Nobody is underrated or overrated. They are all rated pretty much correctly if you ask me ;)

Best: Lucus and Lepay
Worst: Mccaren (although I like Larravee)

Underrated: Ted Davis

Also, Chris Roth does the UW-Green Bay basketball games. He is absolutly brutal.

Best: Uecker

Worst: Krause at Buck's home games, either join Ted on the road and get a season long thing going or stick to TWS channel.

Overrated: Larravee (He's great, don't get me wrong, but he is no Irwin)

Underrated: Bill Schroeder
