College Basketball Open Thread: 4 - 8 PM Shift

Saturday, December 13, 2008

Two marquee programs on hard times are the focus on the 2nd CBS game of the day, with Tom Crean leading a decimated Indiana team and Billy Gillispie still having some struggles in his second year in Lexington. We get the CBS debut of Greg Anthony on color commentary (I've not heard him do color for a game before; at least not that I can remember), as he's teamed up with everyone's favorite Uncle Verne.

Indiana @ Kentucky (CBS, 4pm)- Verne Lundquist, Greg Anthony
Utah @ Oklahoma (ESPN2, 4pm)- Terry Gannon, Stephen Bardo
Mississippi @ New Mexico (Versus, 4pm)- TBD
Florida State @ Georgia State (CSN Regional, 4pm)- TBD (Will Air on CSN Mid-Atlantic, CSS)
San Diego State v. St. Mary's (HDNet, 4:30pm)- TBD (Will Air on KCAL, CSN California)
Prairie View A&M @ Baylor (FS Southwest, 5pm)- TBD
Oral Roberts @ North Carolina (ESPN2, 6pm)- Mike Patrick, Len Elmore
Alcorn State @ Michigan State (BTN, 6pm)- Mark Neely, Trent Tucker
DePaul v. UCLA (HDNet, 7pm)- TBD (Will Air on KCAL)
Murray State @ Missouri (Mizzou Sports, 7pm)- TBD (Will Air on FS Midwest)
UMBC @ Pittsburgh (Big East Network, 7pm)- TBD (Will Air on FS Pittsburgh, MASN)

This has been a pretty good game between Memphis and Gtown. Now in OT after a tip in with 4 seconds left.

Anthony did some NBA games for ESPN in a 3 man booth with Tim Legler.

Just a note Minnesota-Duluth won D-II football championship. Incredible turnaround 4-6 last year to 15-0 and national champs.

S2N went over to your site, liked the posts you wrote on auto bailout and IL governor. Just saw a report on FOX news gov has 0.8 % approval rating. The choices made by some voters amazes me. But then again, I'm from DC surburbs and saw Marion "Crackhead for Life"
Barry get reelected several times.

God, Indiana is horrible. Too bad this is a national game on CBS. Next week they have four outstanding matchups.

Four outstanding matchups next week on CBS, two timeslots.
A lot of struggling out there:
-Michigan early against Eastern Michigan (now they're starting to pull away)
-The offense in the Utah-Oklahoma game
-Auburn football's coaching search: 5-19 Gene Chizik? Really?

The only thing making this Indiana-Kentucky good is my new HD. The cable guy just put in the HD box.

However, HD can't completely polish a turd of a game. They can't all be Memphis-G'Town, folks.

RJBO - saw that on Chizik. Posted above on it.

Auburn fans are probably furious.

At halftime of the UNI-Richmond game they showed highlights from the Louisville-Austin Peay game, where the Cardinals were lucky to win. Afterwards, Rick Pitino was asked a question by an old male reporter and Pitino teed off on him, saying he asks stupid questions and "he'd rather have a female sideline reporter" (because I'm sure he'd rather chat with Erin Andrews) and he *bumped* the reporter as he walked to the locker room.

Does anyone have any further info on this, like who that reporter was, or if those two guys have been feuding like this for awhile now?

I love Lenny Elmore, but he just said this about Hansborough:

"He's focused on the big picture. He's thinking about the here and now and not the future."

NC winning by 18, and Mike Patrick calls the games for the Tar Heels... with 3 minutes left in the 1st half.

I'm pretty sure that sideline guy was a buddy of Pitino's and he was just messing around with him.

Greg Anthony used to do NBA sunday games (8pm game after ABC double header or feature game) with John Saunders and Tim Legler with Stephen A Smith on the sidelines...

The Louisville sideline reporter is none other than local celebrity/baffoon Terry Meiners. He and Pitino always have an awkward love/hate chemistry and I'm sure most U of L fans would jump at the chance to bump that assclown from time to time.
