Texas vs. Memphis (Houston, 2:20pm)- Jim Nantz and Billy Packer
Kansas vs. Davidson (Detroit, 5:05pm)- Gus Johnson and Len Elmore
Sorry for the delay in getting the post up today, but I'm in for the long haul now. Memphis seems to be well in control of this game and radio play-by-play man Brad Sham seemed none too happy about it. Let me know what I missed.
So apparently Jay Bilas really like Tyler Hansbrough and Dick Enberg said rape at some point. I'm going to have to go back and watch that game again.
I hate this...I had Texas winning it all. (Via SS Reporters)
I had Stanford in the Championship soooooooo. Also, what's with all of the dead air today. Nantz can't seem to come up with anything to talk about.
Nantz: "I think Texas should begin the hacking process." The hacking process for Nantz & Packer starts when they speak. (Via Anon)
"If they were going to go into the hack a Shaq then they would have had to of done it a lot earlier."- Billy Packer
They started with like six minutes left. When would you have like them to start Billy? At the start of the half???
"This is going to be a long three minutes here."- Billy Packer
Tell us about it Billy.
"You don't want to start annoying your own fans."- Billy Packer on Rick Barnes fouling down 16 with 40 seconds left.
Speaking of ESPN, tonight's Sunday Conversation has Rece Davis interviewing Knight, Parcells and LaRussa. Could you all join me in prayer for a well-placed meteor. (Via Mal)
Seriously. I saw the press release last week and didn't even want to bother posting on it. I like how TBL called them "The Grump, The Meanie, and The Drunk".
Okay now the fun starts.....Let's go Cats! And Bill Self is making substitutions two minutes into the game.
"Rush, Rise and Fire."- Gus Johnson
That never gets old.
"The scoreboard has gone blank right now Davidson and Kansas have yet to score a point according to the scoreboard. It's been a slow pace, but not that slow."- Gus Johnson
The under for the first half is a mortal lock. (Via Ed)
"Curry again....RING IT."- Gus Johnson
That drive was ridiculous. The kid has 8 points in a minute.
Did Gus just say, "The white lobster" when that whitey chucked a trey bomb? (Via Brett)
Yeah, it's the kid's nickname for some reason.
"Kansas goes to the zone. Looks like a box and one."- Gus Johnson
See. He doesn't just yell. He's insightful too.
"As Anderson Hunt, Anderson Anderson, Antonio Anderson banks in a three."- Clark Kellogg
Where is Anderson Hunt these days?

At the beginning of the second half, they put the bracket on screen. Instead of Xavier, it read Xaveir. Nice work CBS. (Via Daniel)
Yep they sure did.....
"White Lobster, because he's from Maine! That's what they call him."- Gus Johnson (Via Anon)
"OH! The White Lobster is cookin'!"- Gus Johnson
