All Hail The Digger Factor

Digger Phelps. The guy is insufferable, right?

His claim to fame, such as it is, he coached the one school in the land more divisive than Duke. Notre Dame. You either love ‘em. Or hate ‘em. Nobody sits in between. While there, he had that one BIG W over UCLA. Big Whoop.

For punctuation, on TV, he matches his tie color with a magic marker he holds in his hand.

He speaks in a syntax that would make Yoda scratch his head. His observations may actually be astute, but it’s impossible to know from listening to him talk. His verbiage is so indecipherable that sidekick Hubert Davis laughs in his face.

Plus he danced some stupid dance with cheerleaders awhile back.

Like I said. Insufferable.

But hear him now and believe him later.

Of’s 14 basketball “experts,” Digger Phelps is the only one with all Final Four picks still alive. Yes, my friends, that quake in Japan did indeed tilt the globe on its axis.

Not Andy. Not Jay. Not Forde. Not Dana. Not Gottleib, who falls just below Digger on the Insufferability Meter. None have all four still playing.

If Ohio State, Duke, Kansas and Florida make it to the last weekend, trust me, you’ll never hear the end of it.

Why, you ask?

Because, as skewed as my bracket is, I’ve got those four advancing also. And it will be Me and My Main Man D. Phelps in yo face.

    I am sure you are right about Digger but I swear on one show I heard him pick UofL to be a Final Four team.

    I heard Mr Phelps put the Cards in his final 4 as well, but hey, lots of folks fill out several brackets. What an amazing array of magic markers… While discussing video pundits, it was Sir Charles who insisted the west coast Wildcats would prevail, even when at the half the Dukies seemed in charge.
