Raftery to Bilas: You Ever Been Ridden?
College hoops pundits laud the chemistry that Bill Raftery has had with longtime play-by-play partner Verne Lundquist on CBS, but his work with Jay Bilas on ESPN isn’t to be discounted either.
Case in point: The broadcast of Monday night’s Notre Dame-Pitt game. After Raftery made a comment on “riding the hot player,” he turned the conversation over to Bilas with this gem of a question: “Have you ever been ridden?”
Almost without missing a beat, Bilas replied, “Not as a hot player.”
You can almost hear play-by-play man Sean McDonough simultaneously shaking his head and stifling a chuckle as he says, “Let’s just move quickly ahead to further action due to time constraints.”
