I am not happy with you CBS. Sure you've added some good players to the mix, but you've once again ruined the GJE (Gus Johnson Experience) by pairing him with the most boring analyst you could find. You couldn't have given me Gus and Raftery just once?
Oh well here they are....
Studio: Greg Gumbel, Clark Kellogg, and Seth Davis
Jim Nantz/Billy Packer
Dick Enberg/Carter Blackburn/Jay Bilas
Verne Lundquist/Bill Raftery
Gus Johnson/Len Elmore
Kevin Harlan/Dan Bonner
Ian Eagle/Jim Spanarkel
Craig Bolerjack/Bob Wenzel
Tim Brando/Mike Gminski
Gus' partner from last year, Dan Bonner, now gets Harlan while most everyone else stays pretty much the same. I like the addition of Bolerjack but Kevin Harlan and Bob Wenzel were a pretty good team last year. Not a bad lienup, but I don't understand one thing....Carter Blackburn?!?! Why? Three person booths just never work and especially in Basketball.
Also, if we're led to believe that this is in order that means that Gus Johnson's DOES get to call the Sweet Sixteen. So we've got that going for us....which is nice.
Update: For those of you guessing that Carter Blackburn wasn't a third member of that team, but a replacement for Enberg on some games....you are correct.
