Dickie V will laugh this off no doubt, but at what point do network college basketball experts — who are being paid big bucks for their opinions — get held accountable for their failures? How many wrong predictions before your credibility is totally shot? The video below is a compilation of ESPN pundits pooping all over VCU when the seedings were first announced. And as you can see in the photo here, taken during a VCU rally in Richmond recently, a lot of people haven’t forgotten how ESPN in general and Vitale in particular loudly proclaimed that the Rams didn’t deserve to be in the tournament.
Perhaps ESPN should get out of the prediction business, and just report scores.
