    I think Stacey is Eskimoian and something else mixed..but I agree she's from Indiana and had a better feel and love for Indiana basketball and Brooke seems like a substitute teacher, just filling in..I think Stacey Stacey is sexier ..I think brooke seems more botoxish, her makeup looks like weird too

    Stacy is from Boone County and a Ball State Grad. Any idea if she found another gig some where else?

    Give Brooke time, she'll catch on with things.

    I'm still trying to figure out what I did to have her as a Twitter follower before I followed hers, but whatever!

    Brooke should get better. However, present Stacy would be better right now, and it makes sense. I find Brooke has been using a lot of cliche generic lines as filler with little analysis. Still, she'll improve as she works more with the players, other announcers, and just the job itself.

    It's too early to tell because obviously she won't have a relationship with the players or the team yet like Stacy has built over time.. Stacy was from Indiana which was nice, but I really like how Brooke seems to be soaking the Indiana atmosphere in. She seems to really like it around here.

    Both Stacy and Brooke obviously had some growing pains at the beginning. Stacy eventually overcame them. We'll see if Brooke can do the same.

    I miss Stacy, but at the same time I do like Brooke. Brooke is new and seems a little nervous. She's still adjusting and I think she's adjusting well. She'll continue to get to know the players and the players will accept her the same way they did with Stacy I think.

    BTW, was Stacy let go because she said damn it on the air once?

    From my understanding her contract ran out. The Pacers decided not to renew her contract so they could save some money during the lockout. At least thats what I remember.

    I like this too, it gives them a chance to show off Indy more, like the historical society last night.

    Considering what Brooke went through this year, I'm just impressed she is able to come to work and be moderately effective. It doesn't help that we had the lockout too.

    I really liked Stacy's work and miss her with the team, but Brooke is still in respawn invulnerability mode to me. Let's see how its going in April.

    Ditto. I'm all for bottom line professionalism, but c'mon guys. Give her just a bit of consideration for personal life, and the fact that it's a brand new gig?

    I will say BOTH! Unfair to compare them this early in Brooke's tenure.

    I liked Stacy, but Brooke is good too. She will improve as it seems like she is very excited to be here but a tad nervous. That is understandable.

    I'm doing my best to give Brooke a pass, but I expected her to be better, considering she supposedly did the same thing for the Blazers.

    I hope Stacy's getting along okay. Sideline reporting for BTN isn't exactly a full-time job.

    stacy by a mile and i never really liked stacy at the time. halfway through the season i really miss how seamless stacy was with her broadcast.

    i'm not sure what brook has going on but she shouldn't be on tv plain and simple. it's not the popular opinion or maybe just not popular to state, but when brook is a part of the broadcast at least once, normally twice or three times, brook totally takes away from the broadcast flow by flubbing lines, conducting super uncomfortable and awkward interviews, strange expressions, factual errors, etc.

    it's halfway through the season and it's as bad as day one. i don't think anyone will be surprised at the end of the season when brook's contract is not renewed.

    I noticed about 8 or so games ago they had another woman kind of being assistant sideline reporter and the contrast was so completely stark. her genuine on air presence was so refreshing. hope she gets the job.

    Either one is OK. I liked Scott Hoke better than both. They are easier on the eyes, but Hoke was better at his job. JMHO

    If I were asked to be uber critical and point out the differences in the two I'd first say they both have/had growing pains with the role. I think in some regards Brooke is further along in general than Stacy was at this point as an on-air personality.

    My criticism of Brooke would be that she doesn't seem real knowledgeable about the game. Now, she may in fact be extremely knowledgeable but it's not coming across that way for whatever reason. She comes across more as the girlfriend trying to fit in with the guys as they watch a game but she doesn't really 'get it'. Not necessarily just understanding the defense or scoring in a general sense, but not understanding the emotional attachments to their team and why the guys are so wrapped up into the game in the first place.

    Brooke is like the girlfriend watching the opposing team score on a breakaway dunk and thinking and saying "Oh how cool the way he jumped and dunked the ball there" (as if that's what she thinks everyone took away from the play)... when the guys don't care so much about how impressive the dunk was, they are pizzed about the defensive breakdown that allowed the breakaway in the first place.
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.
