Bill Walton wants you to know he’s smoked weed before. It’s a shocking development, I know.

Last night, Walton did his Walton thing. He used some Tom Petty lines to ask if you’ve “ever been high off the ground? And you try to find it on the way down?”

He’s just a classic rock aficionado, nothing else to consider here!

Maybe Walton was trying to figure out how to come down throughout the Pac 12 championship. During the broadcast, he broke down the matchup between the Buffalos and Beavers... like, the animals, not schools.

Fortunately, that was not the last time Walton would make animal noises during a nationally televised championship game on ESPN. Here’s Walton as a... Beaver?

Walton’s buffalo stampede also pounded our eardrums during the game.

You heard it here first, folks. “Humph” is the sound a buffalo makes.

I get how Walton’s meandering platitudes and flat out weirdness can be annoying, especially if you’re a fan of a team he’s analyzing. But that’s not the case here. Now, I only want to hear Walton’s noises for every mascot in the country.

What would a matchup between the UC Santa Cruz Banana Slugs and Syracuse Orange sound like? These are things I think about now. Thanks, Bill.

In case you cared, the (Oregon State) Beavers beat the (Colorado) Buffaloes 70-68.
