I guess my standards are way too high! LOL! You are right though. I think it was just lucky he happened to be from IL!

Been to quite a few wrestling venues and, like many of you, listened and watched the Big Ten Network wrestling broadcasts. It can really lend to a positive viewer experience when broadcasters or mat side announcers know what they're doing. Wrestlers work way to hard to have some guy butcher their name or "dismember" the sport with incompetence. Given the opportunity why wouldn't people prepare? They all should be schooled by the guy at Oklahoma State (matside announcer), Don Blasingame, the best preparation and delivery in memmory.

Purdue announcers

I know I give the student announcers a lot of grief, but the guys from Purdue are solid! Finally, something worse listening to.
