Why Packer must go
This is revealing because it shows that he doesn't pay that much attention to the teams outside the power 6 (Big East Big 10, ACC, SEC, Big 12 and Pac-10). He was "surprised" because the Missouri Valley had as many teams as the Holy ACC (4). It is obvious to me that he is out of touch with today's college basketball climate. It's no longer just teams from those six conferences who are good, The Valley and a few other conferences are good. The Valley got more teams than the WAC, MWC and Atlantic 10.
He's like Dan Rather or Mike Wallace, a relic from a simpler media age.
ESPN Broadcasts a ton of college basketball between their three channels (ESPN, ESPN2 & ESPNU). Packer does maybe 10-15 games a year on CBS.
Time for him and Nantz to go.
