Who you prefer?
I was a huge Mike Morgan fan, but Demetra has really grown on me. Yeah, he sounds like a yankee, but you can see the effort he puts forth. Love his enthusiasm too. Hope he sticks around for a while.
Demetra. He seems to really enjoy his job.
Dyson is kind of irritating. Talks nonsense too often and then makes backhanded comments about the team a lot as well. Noticed it several times tonight.
I like Andy. Dyson tells you what happens after it happens it was hard to tell when the pitcher pitched and what's going on. Andy will say the pitcher in his wind up and the pitch. He is very good at telling you what's going on as it happens and not after it happens. IMO

Listening to Trey Dyson on the TV broadcasts from today and yesterday were brutal. I dont want to listen to a guy babble on in neverending stories during the middle of a ball game. His analysis of the the bats we use now was obnoxious.
Demetra has turned into a good commentator. Trey is an ex-player, and a great guy, who does this on the side as a second job. I love trey he is young candid and the opposite of a talking head, which i appreciate. He is a great gamecock too.
I love Demetra. I agree with the poster who said you can tell he enjoys his job. He also knows interesting tidbits about the opposing players. He will always mention if they have SC ties like the Alabama player whose father played football at the Citadel, etc.
I think they would make a better team than Andy and the old guy who dyes his hair. Demetra at play by play and Trey at color.
Dyson, when listening to baseball I really want someone who knows the game painting the picture. last night with 2 outs and runner on 3rd Marzilli tried to bunt for a base hit and Andy called it a squeeze. He has limited knowledge of the game and it hurts his broadcasting. Do love his passion though!
I like Demetra. I hate how he says soph-o-more, but other than that I like him. Dyson seems high. Talking about "hitterish" and such. That is stupid. I prefer Tommy Moody though.
You can't see! I can't see! All that matters is can the f*&%ing horse see! That's a raid!
demetra is great. he is kinda old school the way he annouces games
I honestly get the feeling that Demetra just loves it here and does a good enough job for me.
I prefer Demetra. As long as I don't have to watch him talk....I'm good with him.
I noticed that too. Still doesn't know the rules of the game. 2 outs and a squeeze??? Guy makes it to second on a throw and he calls it a double?? I can tolerate the annoying voice, but please give the young man a rulebook. And for the love of the game, stop trying to prove how smart you are!! Let us here more from the analyst.
Demetra sounds like a play-by-play guy; Dyson sounds like he's 12 years old
Ya'll, come on. Trey Dyson is a banker who sits in on these broadcasts about 3 or 4 times a year and has done a grand total of about 10 games...ever. He's a great guy and one of the most loyal Gamecocks you'll ever meet. He's NOT a professional color analyst. They've got him on there to fill the space and to provide some insight into college baseball because he played (and played very well). Plus, he's one of our own. They're doing TV though not for Carolina but for an independent broadcast so they can't be overly biased towards Carolina though many know the deal. Ya'll need to lay off Dyson. He's just having a good time talking Carolina baseball.
Hard to believe one of the most popular Carolina baseball players in the last 10 years, who helped lay our Omaha groundwork, gets run down here by Gamecock fans. High? Stupid? 12 year old? Geez people.

For those that maybe didn't follow Carolina baseball early last decade or may have forgotten what Dyson did as a player:
Remember beating Clemson in Omaha twice the first time?
"If you're from Carolina you want to beat Clemson worse than you've wanted to beat anybody in your life. It's that big a rivalry," said Trey Dyson, who hit two two-run homers as South Carolina won the latest round 12-4 Wednesday night and stayed alive in the CWS. Clemson and South Carolina will play one more time Friday with the winner advancing to Saturday's title game. "It's very, very intense and it's going to be even more so on Friday," Dyson said. "It's a one-game shot at the national championship."

best ever...several years ago...we were playing clemson and Trey was doing the game and someone beat a throw to homeplate in a tight game and he yelled "YESSSSS!" and then he and Mike Morgan kinda giggled because he obviously is not supposed to do that.
It was awesome.
Anyone but Demetra. Example: The first clemPson game this year. He was over hyping EVERYTHING. A foul tip he would make it sound like it was almost a homerun. He made me 10 times more nervous than was probably needed. Over and over and over there were little things that he go way to excited about. I miss Mike Morgan badly! Although I must say when Demetra came we won two titles so I'll take Demetra any day over Morgan if he brings us good luck. Hope it carries over to basketball!
hell, I'm just glad we can see some of the games on TV, not so long ago the only chance for tv was Omaha. I don't care if the announcers speak Mandarin Chinese; folks are so picky and whiny these days. About everything.
I really like the Demetra/Moody team for baseball games. They do a great job of telling you the stats, facts, etc about each and every player and they have a nice dynamic. They are both really passionate about the Cocks and are exciting to listen to when there are big plays. Every now and again Moody's homerism seeps through, but it's the home team station, so you have to have that. They are great!
"You’re either a block-gobbler, a farmer, or you’re a damn hunter and playmaker."
Yes, Demetra has grown on me. At first, his voice kind of got on my nerves, but that quickly faded, and now I really like him.
He loves what he does, and loves the Cocks and our players.
I joke about Trey Dyson, but the truth of the matter is he was a HELL of a hitter. The Furman game, he was going on and on about how he loves Dantzler's swing, and said he really loads up right before he swings. He was referring to the funny way Dantzler winds the bat up and around his shoulder before he swings. Dyson did the exact same thing, so that is why he likes it so much. Dantzler is a lot like Dyson was, and that is a big complement to Dantzler.
Dyson and Yaron Peters combined for a bunch of BOMBS. Dyson played a huge part in a team that made it to the CWS finals game.
Dyson does a good job with the games, and you can tell he is a homer, which makes him a better announcer imho. You can never talk about how awesome the Yardcocks are, imo.
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
Dyson is awful! Like most, Demetra has grown on me over time. He makes the broadcast as Dyson makes you want to turn the sound off. Really bad!
