Chat with Buster Olney

Buzzmaster
  (2:05 PM)

Buster will be around momentarily. Please keep the questions coming!

Buzzmaster
  (2:14 PM)

Some bad news on Buster. He had a family emergency that he had to rush off to deal with. All our best to him.

Buzzmaster
  (2:14 PM)

With that said, y'all get some time with me, Buzz, before "Game of Shadows" authors Mark Fainaru-Wada and Lance Williams stop by at 2:45.

John (Greenville, SC)

Hope everything is OK, Buster...

Buzzmaster
  (2:15 PM)

Us too.

Buzzmaster
  (2:15 PM)

So, in betwen bites of Campbell's Chunky Sirloin Burger soup, I'll be chattin with ya.

Todd (Boston)

Sorry to hear that. Buster seems like a really good guy. Are you taking over Buzz?

Buzzmaster
  (2:16 PM)

Yup. And no, Donovan McNabb's mom did not deliver the soup.

Charlie (San Fran)

Any good?

Buzzmaster
  (2:16 PM)

Not bad for heated up in the microwave.

Ken (Richmond, VA)

Did Campbell's pay you for that plug Buzz?

Buzzmaster
  (2:17 PM)

If they are, someone's stealing my check, cuz I haven't seen it.

Buzzmaster
  (2:17 PM)

What's on everyone's minds?

Ryan (Buckhead)

Hey Buzz ill be at the atlanta regionals tonight rooting for duke and texas. Any predictions on the games?

Buzzmaster
  (2:18 PM)

Wicked jealous here. I had Duke and Texas in the Elite Eight to begin with and I'm not backing down now.

Dave (Boston, MA)

Awesome, so what's your take on this years Sox-Yankees rivalry?

Buzzmaster
  (2:20 PM)

Based on what I saw last night (for those of you who missed the highlights, the Yankees and Sox are already beaning each other with regularity) I'd say this year will be as spirited as any other.

Mike (Mesa, AZ)

What do you think about the Cardinals chances this year??

Buzzmaster
  (2:21 PM)

They didn't seem to make many big moves in the offseason. It seems like these days if you're not making moves, you're standing still, which allows other teams to catch up.

Andrew (RI)

Why did the umpire let three guys get hit before a warning? Isn't two the norm?

Buzzmaster
  (2:22 PM)

I'm glad someone else thought of that. Each team gets to plunk the other team and that's that. The umps must not be in midseason form yet.

Jack Bauer (Los Angeles, CA)

Did anyone see Rudy die on 24 two weeks ago?

Buzzmaster
  (2:24 PM)

Sad, sad. Rudy has gained some weight since his Notre Dame days.

mark (mass)

did you catch american idol last night? thank god chicken little is gone

Justin(Holland, MI)

With all the moves the Tigers have been making in the past few offseasons, is it the right moves? and will they be able to compete with Min, Chi, and Clev?

Andrew (RI)

How long are the Game of Shadows authors going to be here? I have a meeting at 3, meetings suck more than the Knicks.

Tyminator (Lewisburg, PA)

So what's the over/under for Manny demanding to be traded? I'm thinking it's about June 28th.

Andrew (RI)

Why doesn't anybody like Lisa Tucker? I'm so going to marry her (it will be less weird when she's 20 and I'm 23)

Jim (At your local coffee house)

Wow, baseball isn't that far away. The offseason went by fast.

Andy (Washington, DC)

I call shenanigans! Nothing sucks more than the Knicks!

John (Greenville, SC)

Who you got in the biggest game tonight- UCLA-Gonzaga?

Buzzmaster
  (2:28 PM)

My bracket says UCLA, but there's a part of me that would like to see the Zags keep rollin.

Jason (Music City)

At least you have until 3 for your meeting. I have one in 2 minutes...

Matt (Grand Rapids)

I like Chris Daughtry, but Katherine McPhee and Kelly Pickler are easy on the eyes. I'm torn.

jake (beaver dam, wi)

i'm obsessed with the cubs, but i think after last year, the brewers might have a shot at the NL wild card or possibly even the nl central. what's your take?

Buzzmaster
  (2:30 PM)

The Cubs keep killin me. Prior and Wood have held my fantasy teams hostage for the last 3 years. The Brewers will definitely be strong this year. Wild card contender.

Greg (CT)

I think all teams still in the NCAA Tourney could beat the Knicks right now....and duke, uconn, and Nova would win by at least 20.

Charlie (San Francisco)

No way, basketball Jesus (morrison) is going down tonight!

John (Greenville, SC)

I'll take UCLA...good defense beats good offense most of the time...still (as much as I hate Duke) is there a more intriguing Final Four match-up than Gonzaga-Duke?

Jack Bauer (Los Angeles, CA)

I like speed over power

Buzzmaster
  (2:32 PM)

Jack Bauer in the house!

brian (fresno)

Chris Daughtry? Dude sounded like a gothic-wannabe signing "walk the line." its was just plain weird.

James

If UCLA doesn't win my chances to win my pool are zero.

Chris (CT)

Calling Morrison Basketball Jesus is disrepectful to the real Basketball Jesus (larry Bird). No Basketball Jesus would pound the ball off his head like a psycho.

mark (mass)

wazzup jack-o-ru

Chris (Springfield)

Final 4 = Duke, Gonzaga, UConn, Florida!

Ryan (Buckhead)

I think I am the only person besides students of Northwestern St., to pick them over Iowa.

Buzzmaster
  (2:35 PM)

Nope. Brother's girlfriend did too. Granted this I think this is her first bracket, but still. I thought she got carried away, though, when she picked them into the Sweet 16.

Herb (Fairfax, VA)

Will the real Basketball Jesus please stand up....thank you, Mr. Maravich.

Jack Bauer (Los Angeles, CA)

Buzz...do you believe CTU is a real agency?

Buzzmaster
  (2:35 PM)

I could tell you my answer but then CTU would take me out.

Jim (At your local coffee house)

Who wins in a football game, Lions or Tigers?

Buzzmaster
  (2:36 PM)

Bears . . . oh my!

Zack, (Pitt, PA)

Aramis Ramirez turns into Gary Sheffield this year. Book it. 40 homers 120 rbis .300

Burt (NYC)

The only reason your are conscious right now is because I don't feel like carrying you...greatest line ever!

eric (at school)

dude, 24 is the best show on tv, it's the most intense stuff

Ryan (Buckhead)

All this talk about Uconn and Duke, yet nobody is remember the best shooters in the nation. Nova is my pick and Ray wins it all!

Brian ((marion, ohio))

final 4 = Texas, UConn, BC and UCLA

adam (morrison)

Battle of the 'Staches: Mine, or Tom Sellecks?

Herb (Fairfax, VA)

Why, is Aramis Ramirez using steroids this year?

Tim (Ohio)

You got a Xbox 360 yet buzz, if so what your gamertag,...ill play you in madden or fight night 3

Buzzmaster
  (2:39 PM)

No, but if anyone wants to send me one, that'd be real sweet.

sam (also at school)

the funniest final 4= bradley, west virginia, george mason, georgetown...im not sayin its gonna happen

Mike (Roanoke, VA)

final 4 = Duke, Gonzaga, UConn and BC....UCLA doesnt have enough inside game to make it.

Corey (Atlanta)

Who will start in the Colt's backfield this year?

Buzzmaster
  (2:41 PM)

I think they're taking applications, send one in!

Buzzmaster
  (2:41 PM)

I believe Mark and Lance are on the phone! I'm turning it over to them. Enjoy!
