The End of Billy Packer?
There's no greater lightning rod in college broadcasting than Billy Packer (yes, I think even moreso than Vitale), and now we get word that after 34 years he and CBS finally are parting ways. Frankly, I didn't mind the guy so much other than his blatant mispronounciation of Duke players' names (e.g., Shawn Battier). What I'm a little more confused about is the apparent elevation of Clark Kellogg. I liked him in the studio, and just not sure how it'll work courtside. I guess we'll find out.
