Your College Basketball Announcing Schedule For The Week Of 11/17

Monday, November 17, 2008

We're officially in the midst of the College Basketball Season, and more importantly ESPN's ridiculous (but awesome) "Tip Off Marathon". Are you ready for 23 straight hours of Basketball starting tonight at Midnight?!?! I know I'm not, but I will be watching. Here is your schedule and as always, thanks to the work that The 506 puts in on these. Sorry for the holes in spots, but there's just no way to come up with announcers from FS Ohio and Altitude for every game. If you have something or someone to share, please add it or them in the comments....

Dave Bollwinkel? "Hey Rocky, watch me pull a rabbit outta may hat!"

And a loud FUCK YOU to Comcast for not have ESPNU on all their systems. here's hoping that Disney comes to their senses and makes them put ESPNU as a must carry.

You might be better served just posting the weekday stuff on Monday [Mon-Thur], then the weekend stuff on Friday [Fri-Sun].

A lot of the sites don't put up their game notes (which is where a lot of this information comes from) until the day before the game.

FYI - All Tennessee men's home games on SportSouth (Including Tuesday night's) are called by Randy Smith and Bill Justus.

Bazooka, you work at UMD? I just graduated, I was with WMUC radio...

...also don't forget Mike Longeran, UVM's head coach was an assistant under Gary.
