    Is Billy Packer the biggest tool in college basketball?

    It's like he jumps to a conclusion and when the replay shows he's clearly full of crap... doesn't matter... that's his conclusion and he's sticking to it, come hell or high water.

    Anyone remember when that Duke player took that cheap shot on Timberlake way back and he said that it wasn't intentional and Verne Lundquist called him out on it right on the spot? Wish Jim Nance had the similar amount of testicular fortitude.

    Billy Packer rivals Carson Daly as the tool of all tools.

    That Duke player should be suspended for a very long time.

    Packer: "He was going for the ball."

    dabvu2498: "Uhhh... no."

    The only thing I agree with him on from that whole clip: Why was Hansborough in the game???

    Re: Is Billy Packer the biggest tool in college basketball?

    Haha, yeah, he's definitely a tool alright. I noticed him last night during the UNC-Duke game as well.

    My all time favorite Packer moment was the 1998 UK-Duke regional final game. There was a segment of the game in the final few minutes, when UK was strong into their comeback and I think they were within a point or two (from 17 just earlier in the half) and Kentucky had missed about four or five shots and just KEPT getting the offensive rebounds and they eventually stuck the ball back in.

    Billy Packer's quote during the exchange: "NOBODY CAN GET THE BALL!! WHAT'S GOING ON?!" in the whiniest voice EVER. Something to that extent at least. Kentucky sure wasn't having much trouble getting the ball, Billy.

    Here's another good one where Billy starts whining after Wojo does his best dead fish impression.

    Re: Is Billy Packer the biggest tool in college basketball?

    Packer's two most infamous "stands" in the last few years have been:

    1. Whining about St. Joseph's being a #1 seed after going 27-1 in 2004.
    2. Complaining about the Missouri Valley and other mid-majors getting at-large bids last season, even to the point of angrily confronting Craig Littlepage on national television.

    And in both cases, he's been made to look like a complete imbecile. CBS should put him out to pasture.

    My favorite part of the second stand is the follow up this year.
    Nantz:"Well Billy, who do you see being this year's George Mason,"
    Packer: "Well it's hard to say, but you have to figure it will happen because there's so much parity these days."

    1-So despite the fact it took 23 years for a true mid major to make the final four, you see it happening every year?
    2-a complete 180 without even acknowledging how wrong you were. It's like arguing with my wife.
    When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.

    not sure that the elbow was intentional ... but certainly giving a hard foul certainly was. Whenever a player gives a flagrant/hard foul there is always the chance it will turn out worse than they might have intended, they should be punished accordingly.

    I am in no way defending Billy Packer, but I don't think that elbow was intentional. He hit him hard and I think the one game suspension is probably warrented but the Duke kids thought process wasn't to hit the traveling wonder from UNC in the face.

    Packer is most definitely a huge tool. Unless you are a Duke fan.
