I miss Gus on March Madness. One of the best games I ever saw was Gonzaga and UCLA in Oakland and Gus called it. Another awesome game was Xavier and I think Ohio St that went into OT and, again, Gus called that one. Now it's just not the same.

And I'm an Illini fan to boot, but had to miss it due to work.

He sounds better at calling basketball than he does calling soccer. I'm convinced he could make watching paint dry sound exciting.

Could you imagine him calling him playoff overtime in hockey? He's done college hockey before.

I miss Gus calling the tourney.

Him calling playoff OT hockey would make Emrick sound like Joe Buck in comparison.

Yes. But it was all prerecorded default stuff so it sounded bad, robotic and forced. Johnson is best live and spontaneous.
