It was like watching/listening to a game with a friend.
    I loved Dolce on the broadcast and generally listened to 3-4 games on the radio a season. Fortunately for me, I was able to watch all the games last year so I didnít get to hear Mitchell. I tried listening to a couple of the podcasts that Mitchell and Jason Buck put out but didnít really like it so I stopped listening. I think your analogy of Frank being like an old friend is spot on.

    I like Frank. However, at least when I was working with the football team Frank rarely showed up and the result is that he had terrible information about players and the team. He mostly made things up as he went. I find Mitchell to be much more knowledgeable about football but less entertaining. I will take knowledge over entertainment value.

    You can still hear Dolce on either Thursday or Friday nights during High School season......if you're into Utah HS football......which I am.

    Has anyone in the history of time gotten more second chances than Spence Checketts?!

    Also, I was watching an interview that Gunther was giving Ludwig. Gunther acted like he couldnít care any less about what he was doing.

    Did his dad buy the station or something? I donít mind Spence for his knowledge of basketball, but it is football season and I really liked Guntherís insight ( I know this is not a popular take around these parts).

    When I saw the news, you were one of the first people I thought of, haha. (I know we rarely interact but ill always appreciate the moment you stuck up for me in the infamous Dehlin-Kate Kelly thread when someone else was really attacking me, even though you and I have different views on that topic.)

    I dont wish a job loss on anyone. Its hell. I hope Gunther and Ben are able to find something they enjoy quickly. I hope (though I dont believe itll happen) that Ben can hang around and continue with Salt City Hoops. I think Gunther and Ben could potentially have a decent podcast. In fact, that might be the optimal format for them.

    Its unfortunate that news of this broke with a promo for Spence's new show accidentally being posted to the ESPN 700 website. I hope Gunther and Ben were treated with dignity and respect as their show came to an end.

    I have ranted about Gunther before, so I am not going to kick the guy while he is down now. I hope this brings more listeners to 700 and I hope the best for Gunther and Ben.

    The owner of 700 doesnít tend to care about ratings or quality, as many of the odd moves his stations make often show

    I like Mitchell. He tended to be much more honest about Tyler's play than I remember Dolce being. When it comes to telling us things on the offensive side of the ball, Scott was decent last year. Not as much insight as when we were on defense. Lots of polish needed with regard to his delivery and being concise, but lots of promise, too. Dolce also acted the fool too often by cheering over Bill's call of big plays, which was annoying as all get out.
