However, the timing is strange. He claimed not to solely be Shocker fan but yet leaving the same year the Shockers did seems very, very sketchy to me.
I’m not so sure he had a say where the network puts him. Only time will tell I guess.
HE'S GOING TO THE AMERICAN!!! The same conference as Wichita State! That's supposed to be a coincidence??
He had no say in the matter.

Mark Adams was the best advocate the Valley had period. He knew the players, teams, coaches, and schools like no other announcer. Yes, a little bias towards Wichita - the evil empire - but, a strong supporter of the Valley. Who else on TV supports the Valley?????? Correct - no one. This is a sad loss.

Adams was great for the Valley, he will continue to support the mid-major schools. The guy LOVES college basketball, huge loss.

I asked him and he said he goes where they tell him to go. I believe him. You don't have to.

I didn't feel strongly about Adams either way really, altho I do think he was at least knowledgeable about and/or prepared to call MVC games - he seemed to know the players and coaches and rivalries, etc. I'd rather have that than some of the "out of towners" you can get.

Here's a couple interesting links:
