I could have done with a lot less of both. Seth Davis adds little to broadcast.

The first time they did it, I had to assume that everyone in the production truck fell asleep after they put it up. It was annoying as hell. It was left up for way too long.

It was the giant cherry on top of that turd of a game. Someone was obviously fond of Archie. For the life of me, I couldn't understand how we were even in the game considering that we got the living crap kicked out of us. I still can't get my head around the last 30 seconds. Obviously I would have loved a win. But I would have felt a little dirty about it because we didn't deserve it.

That was some serious man-love for Archie by CBS. They did that at least 3 times, and for long periods of time. Don't remember them doing it for Mack at all.

They didn't do it for Chris.

I was okay with it, because they were essentially setting up a halftime interview with Sean and Archie's father. It's that they left it up for what seemed to be a rather silly amount of time. It just detracted from the telecast.

I have to say that the guys on Blackburn Review are truly funny. They have to be the kind of guys with whom you would enjoy having a few beers. The UDPRIDE people are, well, good lord.

Didn't see it as I was at the game... you could tell Archie was a young, immature head coach.

I guess at a UD home game a few weeks back, Archie actually went over and yelled at the NCAA director of officials on the other side of the court during a timeout. I was a little surprised by the way he carried on on the sidelines at times. At halftime, he literally pushed a 6 or 7 year old ball boy into the basket to move him out of the way.

At another timeout at the beginning of the second half, a UD coach tried to grab a player and the player shoved him away and walked I think to the end of the bench by himself.

I always liked Archie... didn't know much about him... but thought highly of him just because he was groomed under Thad Matta and Sean Miller. But I was just taken aback by his immaturity and the apparent loose ship he runs up north with players treating coaches like that... sounds eerily familiar.

I was annoyed by the split screen. I'm trying to watch a darn game, I don't care that you have my team's coach's father on at halftime. Show the damn game!
