He's terrible. B10 and ESPN gotta replace that guy.

I think Tim is doing a great job as always!  He's so knowledgable about the sport and the all the major players involved.

Have you listened to Jim Gibbons when he is not with Tim?  Tim keeps him focused and on task, otherwise Gibbons will continue to talk about things that simply are not happening in a match even when a replay shows a Gibbons misinterpretation. A lot times he will go on like he didn't even see the replay.  Tim steers Gibbons back to where he needs to be.

The best part of watching all the matches on my smart phone was turning the volume down.

I get mad when the sounds cuts back in for a second on my computer. I tried to listen to the commentary for about 10 seconds and couldn't take it

The commentary is painful to listen to.  The only good announcer with intelligent things to say is Robles.

I think he has some solid insight but 0 energy.  We need a Kevin Harlin type. Or even a Paul Allen would be great for the sport.

Tom Brands should resign at Iowa and take the job. He would be hilarious.

The only person with more Iowa bias would be Brands or Gable.
Bunch of snowflakes run this board, sad how the mods cater to people that support one political party.

And that would be different than Tim Johnson how?

Great job? Imagine how ecstatic you'd be with a guy who could form a complete sentence.

Not a fan. Did anyone watch the ESPN Off the Mats on ESPN3?  I thought Shawn Kenney was decent

I think Shane Sparks does a really solid job in the booth, wish they would give him more shots there instead of interviews.
