You are not alone. I found myself constantly saying "SHUT UP!!!!" at the tv during the game. I find her EXTREMELY annoying.

Disagree 100%, I think she does know what she is talking about. Can explain the game.

Here the GUYS that do games I refuse to listen to:

DICKIE V what has he ever won???

Digger how many times does he talk about when HE beat UCLA

C James in football

Pretty boy Palmer football

Maybe because she is a woman??

Burke was named to ESPN's top men's basketball team


In 2000, Burke became the first woman to be a color analyst for a New York Knicks game on radio and on television; she is also the first woman to be an analyst for a Big East men's game, and the first woman to be the primary analyst on a men's college basketball conference package


You don't do New York Knicks games if you aren't any good

I agree WIth ya on Dick V. annoying as hell. She may be a good announcer on any game other than a WVU game. That is where she is horrid.

Im with 1642' I think she does a nice job. I like her just fine. She doesn't detract from the coverage in my opinion. Which is all I really ask.

I don't think she is any good at all.

Ever since I heard her give kudos to the UConn guard for using the "euro" extra step on the drive to the basket to draw the foul on Rutledge(?). It was CLEARLY a walk.

The "euro" step is walk in any league, especially college. (Yes, I know the NBA apparently changed the rules of the game to accomodate all of the "playground" players that are now in the league.) But, its still a freakin walk!!!

I think she does fine. Her voice is a bit annoying, but from a basketball standpoint, she knows what she's talking about. Other people must agree. She does pro games also.

Take her over "bending, bending..." dude anyday.

I totally disagree. I think she does a great job--and she doesn't feel like she needs to be talking 24/7 like all the other ESPN announcers do! Of course I would rather listen to Tony and Jay anytime but don't have one of those fancy radio's!

I mute bb half the time anyway,but during an audible moment shortly after Peyton's presser she said "it's so hard to believe,it would be like watching Kobe Bryant put on another team's jersey".

I know Doris works bb,but c'mon fella,you can come up with a better one than that.

Not to objectify women but, I sure wish she was hotter.

Sorry, I just think if she was Erin Andrews there would be zero complaining about her.

She could sound like a female Mike Tyson and have a lisp, but if she was hot like Andrews, nary a peep.

One good thing about Doris was that she was really upset that one coach did not vote Kevin Jones as a first team all Big East.

Hmm... Must be why I don't mind Jesse Palmer.

Sorry. I just wanted to fit in. Although I do agree that Doris is not hot.

She knows more basketball than some of the mail jackwagons we are forced to listen to.

I usually mute the TV regardless, and let Tony tell me what happens 5 seconds before I see it. That way, I can close my eyes if I don't want to look.

That limitation on the time you're allowed to edit a post really sucks sometimes.
