Yes it's only the first round of the Big Ten Tournament, yes it's not March Madness… but still, how great is it to hear Gus Johnson call a buzzer beater in March once again?  Brandon Paul hits this shot at the buzzer to send Illinois into the Big Ten quarterfinals and defeat Minnesota 51-49 and Gus into his trademark histrionics with a great call.  ("WELCOME TO THE BIG TEN!")  Gus Johnson has been in Europe the past month launching his career as a soccer announcer, and I admire his boldness in going on a completely new and challenging journey (although he admits he misses calling the NCAA Tournament)… but this is where his true calling lies.
