Guessing Scotty May, Kent Benson, Tom Abernathy, Quinn Buckner, and the rest of the 1976 undefeated Indiana Hoosiers are smiling right now.
... With Kent Benson, Quinn Buckner and Scott May. Yeah, that's a shot at the absurd coverage of the pathetic annual Dolphins celebration
Your are thinking 1981 Hoosiers. They were not undefeated. The 1976 Hoosiers last team undefeated. Quinn Buckner, Kent Benson, etc.
I suppose Kent Benson, Scott May, Quinn Buckner and teammates are somewhere having a glass of champagne.
I wonder if Bob Knight, Scott May and Quinn Buckner just lit cigars and popped champagne.
Kent Benson and Quinn Buckner can call Larry Csonka and Bob Griese... 38 years without a perfect season.
So 4 all the Lance haters(I'm talking to you Quinn Buckner)...my boy has the ability to carry this team when needed.See 3rd qtr last night

This is just what the Pacers needed, no Quinn Buckner!

No one in the world can guard David West. Just ask Quinn Buckner. If you don't, he'll tell you every game anyway.
in honor of Quinn Buckner we should get trending lol
I love FSI because I enjoy Quinn Buckner and Chris Denaris voices
I'm glad pacers are getting some national television time, but there's nothing like hearing quinn buckner.
Quinn Buckner said PG made a bad decision then got hyped we he got the dunk ! SHUTUP And stop hating on him !
Quinn Buckner points out Hibbert has struggled all night, but that's nearly EVERY night these days. Good finish there

My God!!! CBS just aired a musical tribute to 75 years of the NCAA Basketball Tournament, 5 minutes of pure pleasure, it gave me goose bumps!!! One Shining Moment!! Mark Aguire, Ray Meyer, Bobby Knight, Magic, Larry Bird, MJ, Quinn Buckner, Jimmy V, Bryce Drew, Bill Walton, just to name a few!!! Loved It!!! March Madness is a great time of the year!!
Chris Denari, Quinn Buckner & Brooke Olzendam is prolly the best commentating team that i knw ;p
Quinn Buckner irritates me sometimes. What happened to Austin Croshere?
Quinn Buckner is not the kind of commentator Pacers should have because he agrees with bad calls against them. He tries to be politically correct and is critical of Pacers. Hard to listen to him anytime they play. Rather have Clark Kellogg .
Quinn Buckner is Clark Kellogg's long lost cousin with the food references.
Calbert Cheaney, Isiah Thomas, Quinn Buckner, Dane Fife, Greg Graham on the floor with Bob Knight coaching last night
Just had an amazingly fun show in Movie VS Movie at ColdTowne with Quinn Buckner, Lacy Shawn, and Jon Bolden representing the cast of Theatresports. Thanks for having us, Joshua Krilov

I longer have a taste for smothered chicken after seeing Quinn Buckner's face on this
I grew up in Illinois, but I got to see Quinn Buckner play high school basketball a few times.
Cody's next target is Quinn Buckner, but he has a ways to go. Buckner scored 1,195 points.
If you haven't seen Quinn Buckner go crazy watch this
I would rather watch the Pacers lose 1000 games with Austin Croshere doing color than watch them win a championship with Quinn Buckner.
I'm rejoicing in the fact that Quinn Buckner is not commentating this game.
Just saw the Quinn Buckner "smothered chicken" call on the Mahinmi block. The greatest smothered chicken call in Quinn's career.
Quinn Buckner at his finest in the TWolves/Pacers game two nights ago - - Enjoy some

Magic Johnson, Jerry Lucas, and Quinn Buckner! There lol made me look up the third
Dear Cuban I have survived the 80’s and the great lost against the Lakers. I was a huge fan of Derek harper, Rolando Blackman, Sam Perkins the original German Detlef Schremp I was here for the original Mavericks 6th man of the year Roy Tarpley I watched us draft Cherokee Parks, Randy White, 1st rd pick Jim Farmer and Samaki Walker I watch the Chinese players Wang ZHI-ZHI shoots nothing but threes I watch Quinn Buckner and Jim Clemons try to run the triangle offense with Robert Pack and Eric Strickland I watched when they called us Reunion Rowdies and you could buy cheap seats and walk down to the bottom I watched a 19 year old German progress from a kid to a man bringing Dallas a Championship What I can’t watch is that trash you’re putting on the floor. I’m a MFFL, but I need pepto bismol
Tough decision to make and I need some advise. In the man cave should I do great athletes signed jerseys or IU greats. Quinn Buckner, Steve Alford, Keith smart, Isaiah Thomas, Damon bailey, calbert cheaney or Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Wayne Gretzky, Ernie banks, Kareem abdul jabar, pistol Pete, wilt chamberlain.
Black History thoughts - 1969 Pirates - A Forgotten Legacy The lore of high school basketball in Illinois chronicles the many accomplishments of legendary athletes and teams that have shaped the landscape of sports at every level. Names like Isiah Thomas, Mark Agguire, Terry Cummings, Quinn Buckner, and Doc Rivers, speak to the rich legacy of Illinois hoops. But before these and other household names came on the scene, there is one team that set the tone and tenor for a future generations of excellence, not only on the hardwood, but in the history or our state, our nation, and the national consciousness. The 1969 Proviso East Pirates not only changed the game on the floor, but simultaneously altered history. Their state title came at a time when America was ushering in a new era of race relations and equality at the pinnacle of the Civil Rights movement. Ten boys from divergent backgrounds came together in the midst of an atmosphere of rancor, bitterness, and angry confrontation that gripped their school, ...

Michigan (vs. Indiana (this Saturday evening in Bloomington on ESPN. Brings back fond memories of 1976 when they faced each other for the NCAA championship at Philadelphia's Spectrum. I was there. It was great! The 86-68 victory was Bob Knight's first title. Quinn Buckner, Scott May, Bobby Wilkerson, Kent Benson, and Tom Abernathy. What a team! One of the greatest in history.
Still reeling from Quinn Buckner's reaction to this block last night
Okay P-fans! This week, we're going to be out of town. But PPFF continues apace! This week's show is Stand-Ins, and you, the public, get to pick who plays each of us. Nominations are now open! Post your ideas below, and once we confirm availability with the nominees, we'll have official voting. Who would make the cutest Kareem? The raginingest Roy? The craziest Kaci? The very best Valerie? Base your nominations on any criteria you want. Looks, playing style, etc. are completely irrelevant.

It is not Quinn Buckner, Isiah Thomas or Damon Bailey despite many beliefs. It is Jasper's own Michael Lewis.
Here's the club: I managed to think of Jordan, Magic, Kareem and Bill Walton. Another guy thought of Gail Goodrich and (he believes) Quinn Buckner. Shane Battier and Mario Chalmers are one Heat win away from joining it. There aren't many guys who have won NCAA AND NBA championships.

Can we get rid of Quinn Buckner and get Clark Kellogg back ? PLEASE only thing worse would be Bill Walton calling the play by play !
