This college basketball season is off to an awesome start. While the games have been great, the best part of this season for me has been my introduction to Jon Rothstein. He’s a college basketball analyst and basically an encyclopedia on the sport. However, my favorite thing about him is his Twitter. I find his repetitive use of the same sayings and metaphors to be absolutely hysterical and it always makes my day.
Since we had an awesome game today between two teams that Rothstein regularly tweets about (Villanova and Virginia), I thought I’d pay homage to some of my favorite Rothstein quotes. Buckle up America.

Gary Clark, Chris Mack, And The Butler Way
Along with providing great analysis, I hope Jon Rothstein keeps tweeting his sayings and metaphors. I think he’s absolutely hysterical. He has a lot of other regularly tweeted quotes but I thought I’d stick to the college basketball ones since…
