Skip Bayless Taking A Beating On Twitter For His Awful Take On Gonzaga-UCLA

“Won by a lucky shot.”

And with that, awful Fox Sports talker Skip Bayless has again earned his mark after his ridiculous take on what will eventually become a classic moment in sports.

The moment was Jalen Suggs’ 55-foot game winner for the Gonzaga Bulldogs as they beat the 11-seed UCLA Bruins 93-90 to stay perfect and move on to Monday’s title game in the NCAA Basketball Tourney.

It’s tough to find a ton wrong with the way Saturday’s game turned out, even if you’re not a fan of either team or of the tourney in general.

Bayless, who in the past has simply thrown up random tweets to get a response, took to Twitter to voice one of the dumbest opinions that anyone could possibly have about the amazing game and the way the Final Four affair finished.

It’s hard to think of a more exciting moment in sports than when a player comes down the court and makes a heroic, game-winning shot.

Suggs did that on Saturday, and Bayless simply brushed it off as no big deal.

Bayless, as one would expect today, is taking it hard on Twitter. Fans are not sharing the same opinion about the final few seconds and are letting him know about it in replies to his tweet from Saturday evening.

  1. It was a great game and an unbelievable shot…but it wasn’t a 55 foot shot!! Come on. It was about 10-13 feet behind the 3 point line, in front of the half court!! The court itself is only 94 feet.

  2. 10-15-20 years from now … where will “Suggs’ shot” rank with Kris Jenkins’ Villanova vs UNC 2016 Finals…. or Laettner vs Kentucky 1992 ??? … or MJ vs Georgetown in 1982 ??? … or … or

    As with all sports moments (or favorite Bond Girls or favorite BBQ Joints) it is totally up to each fan to have his own ranking…. and to vigorously defend his choice. My choices for “OMG What did I just see?” is Kick-6 2016 Auburn vs Alabama … or David Freese’s HR in Game 6 2011 WS Cardinals vs Rangers. …
