I like Jim Nantz but I'd love to see (hear) an Ian Eagle/Bill Raftery combo next year.
after hearing commentate the vs game anything is better. Ian Eagle > Nantz for sure!
We are in agreement here. Ian Eagle is so underrated
Jim Nantz is a terrific announcer for many sports (e.g. golf), but he's an ill fit for college basketball. All Ian Eagle all the time, CBS.
Huge Selection of Helmets at Low Prices
Ian Eagle and Bill Raftery would've been the perfect combo to call this game.

Ian Eagle has this game with James Lofton I believe.
Ian Eagle is doing the game tonight with Dan Fouts. I remember Ian doing shifts on Always had a relaxing voice.
Ian Eagle & Dan Fouts on Saturday at 8pm EST on NFL Network & CBS for San Diego at San Francisco - See more at:

Or would NBC go young? Like Spero Dedes or Joe Davis. My guess is they'd have to steal an established big voice, Ian Eagle or Harlan

Really a fan of Kevin Burkhardt, Ian Eagle for football. Jon Sciambi and Dan Shulman favorites for baseball. Enjoy listening to them.
Now that Kevin Harlan and Solomon Wilcots have been split up, Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts are the best NFL commentating duo.
think I am more of an Ian Eagle on the mic then I am say a Peter King typing up the story so I'll stick with that.
I see my man Ian Eagle is working Horseshoe - Halo American Football practice clash. One of the best.

Also after listening to so much Chris Webber, Ian Eagle, and Hubie Brown, having JVG, Breen, and Jax back together is a breath of fresh air.
Ian eagle > the rest of the commentators in basketball
Speaking of broadcasting, TNT might have the 3 best play-by-play guys in Marv, Ian Eagle & Harlan. Tirico making moves to that Top 3 tho.

Ian Eagle? C'mon. One of the best in the biz! Especially if paired with Spanarkel.
Thank God it's Mike Tirico and Hubie Brown on the call. I can't listen to Ian Eagle and Chris Webber anymore.
Ian Eagle is one of the best. I can assure you he's not biased against Indiana.
will trade you Ian Eagle for Tirico 100/100 times
This Tirico-Hubie duo is like angels singing after listening to Ian Eagle and Chris Webber for 4 games.
I will say this, how much of an upgrade is it to have Hubie Brown and Mike Tirico over Wizards fans Chris Webber and Ian Eagle!
*** just found out my grandpa went to Auburn. I guess that makes me somewhat of a war eagle?

if TNT let Ian Eagle call Nets games instead of Pacers/Wizards, the Nets would have won the last two!
Ian eagle and Kevin harlin the best nba play by play guys
Chris Webber is horrific on so many levels. He has no chemistry with Ian Eagle whatsoever. He just goes on random rants.
I gonna miss hearing ian eagle say that's an mt3
Maybe Mike Fratello comes back, even though he has a good thing going with Ian Eagle on YES?
Chris Webber is interested in the Cavaliers job. Heard it hear first. Who next, Ian Eagle to New York?
I miss you, Ian Eagle. That other series doesn't deserve you.
Based on their voices I'm pretty sure and 's Ian Eagle are the same person. What's the / overlap anyway?
you literally just repeated what Ian eagle and the color analyst said for 20 minutes straight.
Ian Eagle pretty much nailed it. Pacers had a chance to remove doubt of how dangerous they are by finishing the Wiz tonight. Didn't happen
acting as if he wants to be both play by play and color commentator...don't want Ian Eagle to say anything, huh?
I hope this is the last game of the series mainly because we'll be done listening to Ian Eagle and Chris Webber.
0 - the number of times Ian Eagle has actually interacted / responded to something CWebb has said.
The best part of this Pacers-Wizards series has been Ian Eagle as the announcer. One of the best!
Ian Eagle after John Wall made the 3: "he is smoking" not smoking hot he just said smoking lmao
Ian Eagle w/Ruocco would have been great. I miss Kelly Tripuka

and Marv Albert and Kevin Harlan and Ian Eagle (I think)
If Mike Breen, Van Gundy, Clyde, Ian Eagle, Marv Albert and Kevin Harlan all announced the finals, my life would be COMPLETE
Have to say, Ian Eagle and Mike Fratello are really fun to listen to on Nets games. They have fun together and don't take it too seriously.
Its time Richard. Uncle Verne is fun, buts this needs to be Ian Eagle's gig now.
Ian Eagle is my favorite broadcaster in all of sports. The guy is just phenomenal

Geesh, can't you guys find anybody in NY to outright pick the Hawks? Ian Eagle
Funny how in Richard Deitsch's Monday media column he advocates Ian Eagle & Dan Fouts for bigger roles on CBS. I've said that for years.
I totally agree I want Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts to be team on CBS. They have earned it, I enjoy them
CBS should move the team of Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts into a bigger role. The media column:
It's time for Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts to move into a bigger spot for CBS. The media column:
No disrespect to Greg Gumbel, but CBS should make Ian Eagle & Dan Fouts the No. 2 team next season.
I mentioned the other day that I loathe Brent Musberger and with the news that Chris Wheeler will no longer be doing Phillies games, it got me thinking about what sportscasters (play-by-play) I like and which ones I hate. Along with Musberger, I hate Hawk Harrelson of the White Sox and Eagles radio man Merrill Reese. There are quite a few that I love hearing. Vin Scully (who doesn't?), Jon Miller, Jim Hunter, Chris Wheeler, Joe Angel, the late Chuck Thompson, and the late Harry Kalas for baseball. Gary Thorne for baseball and hockey. "Doc" Emrick, Joe Beninati and Jim Jackson for hockey. Ian Eagle and the late Pat Summerall for football. And probably my favorite sports play-by-play man of all time is Verne Lundquist. I could listen to Lundquist call a game of chess and enjoy it. If I ever had any technology that talked to me constantly (like Siri or even my gps) I would want it to have Lundquist's voice. Or the voice of James Earl Jones. Having Darth Vader tell me when and where to turn.
I've never understood CBS football's fascination with putting Jim Nantz and Phil Simms as the lead team. They have Kevin Harlan and Ian Eagle much better play by play men. Rich Gannon, Steve Tasker, Dan Fouts, and Dan Dierdorf are by far greater than Simms at color commentary. Also remember Simms isn't as great a QB as people think. He once was hurt and Jeff Hostetler led the same Giants team to a Super Bowl win.
THIS WEEKEND on CBS, we have triple the fun with three college basketball games for you! TOMORROW, we kick off a double header with Michigan State Basketball vs. Indiana Basketball with Andrew Catalon and Clark Kellogg on the call, 2 PM ET.

On SUNDAY, you can follow up the NFL on CBS AFC wildcard action with San Diego State University Athletics vs. Kansas Men's Basketball with Doug Gottlieb and Spero Dedes calling it at 4:30 PM ET.
I love the way Rece Davis just calls him "Johnny," and I'm confident I'll love the way Ian Eagle and Solomon Wilcots will, too.
So we're stuck with Ian Eagle calling the game?!?! Why can't we have Don Criqui calling it?

Paint this one Orange and Black! Looks like next week the CBS announcer crew of Jim Nantz and Phil Simms are doing the 5-7 Tennessee Titans at the 10-2 Denver Broncos. Cincinnati is hosting Indianapolis and both are 8-4 and leading their division and trying to get a higher seed in the AFC playoffs. And we get Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorff or Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts.. Wish CBS would realize there are other teams besides New England, Denver, Baltimore, Kansas City, Pittsburgh. Or get there head outta Peyton's a** so he can take a

Screw Kidd...this was Ian Eagle's chance at glory...and now he is left riffing with Donny Marshall about the bench players.
Ian Eagle and Donny Marshall basically spent the entire 3rd Q talking about different reasons why the Nets have to keep trying.
I don't think Ian Eagle is a Donny Marshall fan.. Bring back
I can only hope the news of Dan Dierdorf's retirement leads to the C Team of Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts getting promoted to the B team at CBS.

I conversed with about the Nets, the East, and what he really thinks of Ian Eagle.
2 minutes left in Ravens-Steelers game. Observations: Ravens don't deserve to win. Offensive line is the ugliest I've seen in a long time (I'm looking at you, Gino Gradkowski (miss you Matt Birk). Joe Flacco is freaking beast. He's had some bad throws this game, but that last drive was ridiculous. (4 or 5 3rd down conversions?). And finally, Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts are my least favorite announcers in football. Terrible. Terrell Suggs never played for Dallas. Numerous other small slip-ups. And then, saying that the Ravens should go for two to go up by one point instead of just tying it is the STUPIDEST thing ever. "to end the game". Are you kidding me?!? 2 minutes left and 2 timeouts for Ben Roethlisberger to get in field goal range? You guys are ***
The last real shake-ups to the teams was when Greg Gumbel was teamed with Dan Dierdorf and *** Enberg demoted to the “C” team and when Marv Albert was brought in when Gus Johnson left and *** Enberg retired bringing Ian Eagle to the “C” team with Dan Fouts. That of course is since *** Enberg was brought in to CBS in 2000. In 1998, Verne Lundquist was teamed with Randy Cross on the “B” team, then Dierdorf the following year. Enberg was brought in for 2000.
Our Broncos-Jaguars broadcast October 13 consists of Ian Eagle, Dan Fouts and Shannon Sharpe, that should be highly entertaining :)
