    Charles Barkley

    He is absolutely hilarious on the studio show. Very entertaining to list to him dress down the Big East while sitting next to Pitino.

    Charles Barkley is one of the many reasons I love watching the NBA so much. He's classic, I think he's better doing the NBA thing but I like him for this. Maybe he's too brash for college basketball though.

    I know he's an NBA guy but he doesn't know any of the players names and he's known for a long time he was doing this.

    ^He was not prepared at all to do this and it shows.

    He is fantastic on the NBA pre and post game shows.

    Agreed, but he knows the NBA. I can't believe he didn't prepare for this.

    I don't think he is all too great. He's not polished at all. Talks as if he has a load of marbles in his mouth. Makes crazy statements, but I guess he's there for the "clown" effect..........just my opinion.

    Barkley was great at the half there. He didn't need to know any players names though.

    He doesn't know that much about what's going on in the college game as he does the NBA, but he is hilarious. I've enjoyed the back and forth between him and the other guys. He's hammered the Big East pretty hard, but I agree with him.

    I've said all year the Big East is not the best conference, just the biggest. They're way over-hyped. UK kicked Louisville and Notre Dame's butts back when the Cats were still young and learning, early in the season...and that include Harrelson and Liggins as well as the frosh.

    He is there for his opinion, which is often on the money and hilarious. Doesn't kiss butt and that is what makes him refreshing.

    Let the other guys memorize the stats.

    The dart board graphic of the Big East had me rolling.

    You guys will love this then. Happened a week or so ago before the tourney started during coverage of one of the NBA games on TNT.

    Did anyone catch when Greg Gumbel said "the Duke game is up next in ESPN.....I mean CBS....what am I saying....". Hilarious....

    Exactly, he is not politically correct and that is why I like listening to him. There are enough boring guys in the studio.

    Say what you want about Charles and we all know he has his flaws but he calls what he sees. I love it when he talks about how 7' guys can't get double digit rebounds in a game. He says there is no excuse for it and he is right. I loved what he said about the Big East being a bunch of mediocre teams with great coaches. Pitino was beside himself listening to Charles talk about the league.

    ^ Speaking of Rick, how did he swing that gig the past 3 days? I like Rick in that setting and I guess could be trying to secure a future gig. He loves to hear himself talk (as do a lot of coaches, not taking a shot here) and does a solid job.
