Digger Phelps’ act is getting old at ESPN.
When the University of Louisville is involved in a big game, one can always count on Phelps to predict the opponent will win. Notre Dame, of course, every time. Syracuse, Georgetown, Pittsburgh, UConn, they’re always going to beat UofL. I don’t believe I’ve ever heard him predict a Louisville win.
After a while, it becomes pretty obvious when a broadcaster has a bias against a program. His latest great prediction is that UofL will be knocked out of the NCAA tournament by St. Louis. in the third game. He’s rarely accurate so one shouldn’t be overly concerned.
Childish the way he goes about it with his ESPN colleagues like Jay Bilas, Sean McDonough and Dick Vitale picking the Cardinals to win the entire tournament.
Some day Digger may get one right but it won’t be because of any special expertise or insight on his part.
