I can understand ESPN excluding the Pac-10 because it doesn't broadcast any of the conference's tournament, but…

Okay, I would have excluded the Big Ten too.

WOW! This is totally awful! This is so great! I can't believe how shitty this is! Her eyes are full of terror and it's like the song is going faster and faster and faster and the monkey's chasing the weasel and it's…she has no idea. Just none.

Randy's like, "You sounded shitty and inbred, and yet came off fake even though you are both, in reality." [source]
