Your College Basketball Announcing Schedule (A Work In Progess)

Wednesday, January 16, 2008


A ton of people have been emailing me asking where Erin Andrews is going to be each week, and it's about time that I made the transition away from Football. March Madness is only two months away and there are a heck of a lot of good games coming up. CBS' crews usually get announced later in the week, so I'm going to try to get this up with ESPN's schedule on Mondays and update it throughout the week.

Let's get into it. Here's your CBB Announcing Schedule for the rest of the week brought to you by Duke's Holly Kokinda (you can boo me now). Holly is a fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers and lists her life theme song as Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield. Ready? Okay! (All Erin Andrews appearances in all caps for easy scanning....Hint: There's only one the rest of the week)

Billy Packer wants to know where the hell his name is at. And so does Tyler Hansbrough for that matter.

Wait a minute. Erin Andrews *and* Ashley Judd could be at the same game? Set your DVRs!

I thought John Feinstein hated everything that is ESPN (only Keith Olbermann had napalmed more bridges than Feinstein did). What the hell is he doing on their payroll again?

I HATE WITH A PASSION Dave Pasch and Len Elmore. They are the two biggest idiots in the world. AA if you can dig up footage of them gloating over Sean Singletary in the UVA Syracuse game you'll get a good laugh.

"March Madness is only two weeks away and there are a heck of a lot of good games coming up."

Wow, it starts earlier every year, doesn't it?

you know who I think is pretty good but is always left on the U is Clay Matvick. He did a pretty darn good job on College Football with Larry Coker, and he's been working some College Hockey (yawnnn) but I'd like to see him get more opportunities to call some games on the leader or at least the deuce

Just a few observations:

1) David Kaplan? I thought that dude was only qualified to make lopsided trade proposals on the Cubs flagship radio station.
2) MY thumbs up to an underrated/obscure voice is Jon Sundvold. He was pretty decent with Ron Franklin on the Big XII Big Monday games back in the day.
3) Why IS John Feinstein on ESPNU?
4) At least Jim Spanarkel isn't on the call with Eye-an Eagle like he is during the NCAA Tournament on CBS.

No Big Ten network announcers? If I have to suffer watching Iowa Hawkeye basketball and listening to some ex jock mumble on BTN, so should everyone else.

Where's Scott Graham, he's very underrated as an announcer. He should at least be working every weekend.

Dykes was horrible last night. He did some kind of chemistry experiment during one of the timeouts to illustrate "team chemistry" and also said that reserve PG Bobby Frasor's injury meant UNC center Tyler Hansbrough had to play more minutes.

The reason that John Feinstein was picked is that he is an expert on Patriot League basketball due to his book in the late 1990s.

Besides, few people watch ESPNU, so maybe it's a kind of a punishment for him for not appeasing the all-powerful network gods.
