Default Chris Burke (Commentator on ESPN-U today)

He played at UT-K about 10 years ago... very good player in college. I think he hit around .410 or so his last year there... Anyway, the dude is really a good commentator for college baseball... I really hope they keep him around for awhile... Really knows the game, and said a lot of really great things about the USC program..

I listed to Delmonico (Ex UT coach) in the Tallahassee regional.... dude put me to sleep...

Coach Tanner sat in the booth for an inning with him and recalled the skills he showed. Complimented him a couple of times and CB seemed pleasantly surprised by the kind words.

I thought he did a great job. I would really like for him to be a broadcaster full time during the season for ESPN. I hope they allow him to call some games at the college world series.

Yea i loved his call about when Tanner English got hit by that pitch he was, "like now if your smart you milk it all the way to first. Limp it out then steal 2nd on the next pitch." He stole on the second pitch (not the very next pitch) but still he was on point for sure.

Yeah I was impressed as well. He got into the real specifics of the tiniest detail of everything and what he did that made him really stand out is that it didn't come off as boring or who cares, it came off for me thinking about my old days of playing baseball and how I do or did so much of what he was talking about that only baseball players should know but he makes it sound so that a person who doesn't follow baseball would go "that makes sense", he sounds like he could make a good coach. Really knows the finer points of baseball I think and can explain in a way everyone, baseball fan or not can get it and not be bored or like whatever. He makes it interesting. I hope he moves up in the ranks.

I think Tanner said he used to tell his pitching coach to go ahead and let him hit a double instead of walking him, getting a single then have to throw over to first 5-6 times, he was like give him second cause we was gonna steal it anyway. Pretty funny, cool.

He was the best college baseball analyst I've ever heard. And could not have been more complimentary to SC, our fans and our ball park.

Yes! He's SOO much better than having to listen to someone in the booth like Orel Hirscheiser (sp?) I really hope they don't put Orel in the booth for the CWS this year. He flat out sucks!

Hope he does our regional cause he's awesome plus do some CWS games. If I were his agent I'd send the videos of all the game's he's done color commentary on as an audition tape and see if he could get a better offer somewhere else then the 4 letter would probably match or pay more for his services. He could get more money. Not a lot of good color analysts, well I mean really good, this guy is really good.

I was so impressed with him that I went to ESPN.com and gave some comments on how much I liked him, and stated how much I hoped his role would increase as an analyst for their network. I usually NEVER take the time to do stuff like that.

He and Mike Morgan worked a series in a couple weeks ago. Mike said wonderful things about him, and reminded us that it was Burke who broke up the near no-no that Kip had going vs UT. He is a very good commentator and ESPN would do well to keep him around.

Was scrolling through these posts to see if anyone would mention that. Hate that guy for what he did to the Braves.

Just kidding. He was a really good player at UT, and for Houston for a period of time. I also thought he did a great job this weekend.

glad somebody brought this up, my dad and I were both saying how good of a job that crew was, especially Burke.

We also decided that Dave Neal is a closet gamecock fan
