Shut Up, Digger

On ESPN moments ago:

Digger Phelps: I'll tell you what I'm worried about tonight. North Carolina and Tyler Hansbrough.

Interviewer: Against Eastern Kentucky?!?

Words cannot describe the tone of that question. if the guy had just come out and asked Phelps what drugs he was on, it would have been more respectful.

(Of course, Phelps' point - Tyler Hansbrough hasn't been the same with the mask was a valid one, but again, it's Eastern Kentucky, and this is a UNC team that whipped Arizona by 30 without Brendan Wright. Vitale also dimissed the comment, saying Hansbrough won't be a concern until later in the tournament.)
