    Maybe ESPN just shouldn't cover anything in Stillwater until they build a new arena, or at least a perch for the cameraman. That was bush-league.

    They just remodeled the place a few years ago. With all of Boone Pickens' money you think they'd be able to afford a camera stand that isn't blocked by fans.

    Exactly what I was thinking.

    I'll 20th the sentiment. Fantastic game. Neither team deserved to lose, and the Boggan vs. Durant sideshow was phenomenal.

    Actually meant Brandan Wright of UNC ... but Julian is probably a lottery pick, too.

    Betting on this one? Nope. Line was too close, and rarely mess with over/under.

    Great game, with a funny sideline: ESPN2 couldn't stop promoting its live interview with Andre Agassi coming up as part of Aussie Open coverage. The look on Agassi's face was priceless: "When is this thing going to end so I can go home?"

    I don't follow college hoops as much as I used to, but did someone say that Boggan was a Florida transfer?
  9. Boggan transfered out of Florida when he was obese. He says he is on good terms with those guys and eh still regularly talks to Billy Donovan. He also rooted for the Gators last year.
    Now he isn't obese and it's obviously worked out for the best for everyone -- though I'm sure Florida is wishing they had him this year.

    A heck of a game to say the least.

    And the camera angles were awful. Besides the view from the back of fans' heads, was the high corner shot from behind the Horns' basket in the OTs where you couldn't tell if the ball went through the basket or not.

    Personally, I like the terrible camera angles from Gallagher-Iba. It lets me know that despite the expansion and renovation that place went through, at least some things didn't change.
  12. They actually put in a new camera platform this year. They thought that would fix the problem. Obviously it didn't.
    We'll see what happens, but maybe they'll try something new next year.
