Like Gus Johnson? Of course you do. Even at his most annoying, he’s impossible to dislike. The sort of enthusiasm he brings to even the most mundane of Sunday afternoon NFL games — third quarter drives full of screams and whoops and “ha-HA’s!” — it’s a beautiful thing.
So of course it was a pleasant surprise to hear that Gus Johnson is moving over to the Big Ten Network. Big Ten basketball can occasionally be a plodding affair. This year’s Hoosiers are going to be a struggle to watch. But at least we’ll have Gus shouting at us. More Gus is good for everybody.
