I'm watching GTown-Prov. on mute right now. That's how much I can't stand Doris Burke.

Another nationally televised Michigan game. Joy!

Only one game this week for Vitale? Needs to cut back already after the surgeries?

Oregon doesn't play UCLA on Sunday, they play on ABC at 3:30 EST Saturday.

Feb 18, 2008, 7:15:00 PM  

And yet ANOTHER SEC game of the week featuring Kentucky on ESPN. Christ! Seriously, what do Florida and Tennessee (and Vandy this year) have to do to get on TV--other than when they play Kentucky?

Anonymous said...

Thanks everyone for your help so far. Yeah I messed up that UCLA game somehow.

I don't understand the Michigan love either. They have about 10 Nationally televised games every season and they lose all of them.

Feb 18, 2008, 7:21:00 PM  

The cheerleader picture is better than last week's, that one from last week was strange.(I nominate it for caption contest)

Mich love = Fab 5 nostalgia ?(or they dont realize football is over)

Just wondering, how are some of these games "Bracket Busters" (Georgetown / Prov, Syracuse / Louisville, Purdue / Indiana, Depaul / Connecticut, Georgia / Kentucky, UNC / NC ST, OR / UCLA).
These are some the most prominent programs of the past few decades, if not the history of the game.

BTW, Mr Irrelevant has a funny take on the end of the UNC / VA Tech game from the weekend.

Kentucky is more like "Bubble Busters." It was pathetic last week. ESPN tried to hype the shit out of the Kentucky dog of a game. "Are they a tournament team?" "Are they getting better?" "Can they still make the tournament?" And of course, most of their "experts" say yes.

And then they go out and lose by 42.

Actually, I think it's a result of half a dozen Big Ten games being televised that Michigan gets on TV so much. When they televise so many Big Ten games, everybody but Northwestern and Penn State are going to get on TV a bunch of times. What annoys me are those lousy "made for TV" games like Michigan vs. Duke and UCLA. Christ, televise somebody who deserves it. Somebody who makes the tournament every now and then.

As for Kentucky anon, it's annoying because you only get one SEC game a week (2 if you are lucky). So all of their games mean that somebody that deserves it this year isn't getting on TV this year until or unless they play Kentucky.

J.J. said...
Feb 18, 2008, 7:57:00 PM  


It is Miami(OH) so people dont confuse it with Miami of Forida, and I have seen the FL put after that one.

@anon 7:50

Kentucky basketball = Ohio St football. Traditional powers that the media hypes whether it is deserved or not. At least with Kentucky, there is a chance of an Ashley Judd sighting.

jg said...

A better example is Notre Dame because at least tOSU puts up a winning record every year. This past season, ND got more hype than most BCS teams got combined, yet looked like shit every week.

Or Kentucky basketball is like Alabama football.

@jj 7:57:

The volume of nationally televised Big Ten games rose when the whole BTN fiasco arose. The traditional Saturday regional triple-header went away, and the conference still wanted to have an extra game seen on Saturday/Sunday. I can't stand to see Michigan get hammered on national TV myself, except for yesterday's game that saw Rich Rod try his Tressel impersonation before the game and effectively end the NCAA Tourney hopes for the Buckeyes.

Side note: Why is at least one of the Army-Navy basketball matchups on CBS regionally each year?

It's almost time for those people to file in their theaters in Texas and see Holly Rowe on the widescreen....

Rick James Bible Owner said...
Feb 18, 2008, 9:07:00 PM  

And this weekend features your obligatory yearly "made for television," "Duke is playing a mediocre team from New York City that hasn't been relevant since 1986" matchup.

Because of the SEC's lousy once-a-week, always-Kentucky national TV schedule, I have a better chance of watching a mediocre Missouri Valley Conference team on national television than I do seeing tournament-bound SEC teams like Arkansas and Mississippi State.

J.J. said...
Feb 18, 2008, 9:17:00 PM  

@Rick James

Since CBS shows the Army / Navy Football game every year, maybe there is a clause in that contract to show one of the games. CBS also owns CSTV which shows a lot of Navy games in various sports so that could be the reason.

Holly Rowe widescreen, there oughta be a law against that.

jg said...
Feb 18, 2008, 9:25:00 PM  



With CSTV becoming CBSportsTV or whatever they'll call it from now on, Billy Packer is gonna start doing midweek games there, starting with this Wednesday's Memphis-Tulane game. Imagine that miserable bastard walking down Bourbon Street.

Almost forgot, because they were on at the same time today:

Doris Burke doing Men's Color Commentary > Keyshawn Johnson filling in on Jim Rome is Burning

Go get your playbook, Key. Parcells is calling. Honestly, he seemed a little out of place, like when Josh Elliott would fill in on Rome's TV show.

Rick James Bible Owner said...
Feb 18, 2008, 10:08:00 PM  

I didn't feel like reading all the comments to see if anyone else mentioned it, but you don't have the announcers for VaTech vs. Maryland, Saturday at 9 p.m. on Raycom Sports Network.

I dunno who's covering it.

Does AA post the announcing teams of games that are only on regional networks? I'd like to know where Screaming Dave Sims is on the ESPN Plus Big East games in that case.

Thank you, Sledge, as an alum of Miami I appreciate your valiant effort to put an end to "parentheses".

The women of Oxford, OH are a true hidden gem of the Midwest. Thanks, AA.
