These announcers are beyond homer.

The refs are as bad as the announcers.

We played well in many regards but seriously how bad is Lasalle?

The color commentator’s commentary often consisted of simply exclaiming “Oh!”

I thought Bucknell played....well?

I’m sorry it’s impossible to say how well we performed outside of securing a W because Lasalle was terrible. I mean bad on both sides of the ball.

Still we are 2-0 on the road against the A-10. 15 years ago that wokld have never been a possibility.

Not a good night for the A-10. Holy Cross beat UMass, and Maine got its first win of the year over Fordham.

I always just mute the broadcast and listen to Birdsong. The audio and video doesn’t match up but it’s better than listening to the ESPN+ broadcasters.

My favorite play last night was definitely the Kahliel Spear dunk to end the first half. The team executed the play well, and it was great to see Spear make his first big play and showcase the athleticism we've heard about. A preview of things to come.

If you use the TuneIn Radio app to listen to the Eagle 107 broadcast, you can usually get the audio and video to match because TuneIn lets you pause the stream.

The audio is usually ahead of the video, so you can pause the audio and then sync it up by hitting "play" when the video matches what Doug just described on the audio. (Last night was an exception where the video was a couple minutes ahead.)

For all the comments about La Salle (BRW is that ok?) being so awful I watched the full second half against Nova and they didn’t look awful at all. Not great that they’re 0-9 and can’t seem to put the puzzle together but the point is they struggled and not Bucknell. A road win is a road win. We’re a tough crowd when things don’t go our way. Great job. I’m still losing sleep over Fairfield...we should be 5-2 and I know all about my Aunt having balls

I couldn’t watch the game but listened on Tunein. Yeah, at least Birdsong isn’t a “homer.” (Sarcasm implied.) A lot of the laughter directed at a La Salle team missing its leading scorer and another important piece is confusing...I’m sure many thought Bucknell was awful if they watched several of our games, especially without Sestina and another player that was anticipated to play quality minutes, John Meeks. Obviously us shooting an unusually high percentage and them shooting a poor percentage is a huge difference maker. I’m not convinced Bucknell is even a good team yet...an improved performance in some areas, yes. But I’m hesitant to throw stones in a room surrounded by windows.

They’re terrible. Thought some of the PL announcers were bad.




I didn't have a problem with their rooting for La Salle. They're certainly not worse than Birdsong in that regard. But I did have a problem with their lack of baskeball knowledge and poor analysis. I could give 50 examples, but I will stick to two:

- Sestina ends up guarded on a break by a smaller opponent, and the color man questions how La Salle could let such a small defender guard Sestina. He ignores the fact - or didn't even notice - that Brookins at the other end had dove for a loose ball and ended up trailing the play at the other end by 25 feet, which forced a smaller man to pick up Sestina. But the announcer acts as if they randomly decided to put a small guy on Sestina and have their center pick up a Bucknell guard.

- Later in the game, the refs go to the monitor for a review and the color man hypothesizes its to check whether Sestina traveled. Anyone with any knowledge of basketball - and certainly anyone calling a basketball game - should know that video review is extremely limited and can never be used for things like traveling. (Also most OB plays, normal fouls, goaltending, etc.) Any knowledgeable basketball fan should have known the clock operator had incorrectly reset the shot clock, despite their being no clear possession after a missed shot, and they were just confirming that.

Note: I am not suggesting that Birdsong is immune from these sort of gaffes either.

Birdsong's gaffes are usually of a different sort. "So and so has a wide open layup and its blocked" His liberal use of the phrase "wide open" makes it sound like little defense is being played at times when the picture on BisonVision seems to tell a different story.

No fan of Bucknell can complain about the other teams announcers being homers, as we have one of the greatest homers of all time. But he's our homer, which makes it much more acceptable.
Ray Bucknell!

Doug is the most homerific announcer of all time. I don't enjoy it honestly, and would prefer more realistic commentary.

Doug with the constant use of "wide open," I always felt like was a coping mechanism for him. Like "Well they're wide open so they're definitely going to make this" and then when they miss he can act shocked and go nuts. I mean he even does this with Free Throws. He sees a guy is like a 77% Free Throw shooter and he's like, "Well he's definitely making these free throws." Honestly it's kind of annoying.

The La Salle commentators were awful. They provided no insights, seemed to never know what they were talking about, and were blinded by homerism.

As for the team, I've come away kind of unimpressed. Outside of Sestina I don't think anyone has performed consistently enough to say I know they'll be good. Even though Kimball is averaging like 17 points, he doesn't seem to be shooting that well. Moore hasn't been good, Avi and Sotos still are very inconsistent. La Salle isn't good. They might have been missing key pieces, but I can't see them being an impressive team.

I don't know it's nice being 4-3...but we should be 5-2.Unless there is some improvement and more consistency I'm going to have a problem seeing this team win the PL.
