Fan bases loved to say he hated their team, but he was beloved at the same time for his passion and honesty. Tim grew up obsessed with college basketball and remains that way today. So, to talk about the soundtrack of his childhood, Tim brings on another legend broadcaster, Tim Brando, who tells some wild stories that you likely have never heard!
