We've reached the final step before the Final Four next week in New Orleans. Before we get to the details for the open thread, here's your Elite 8 announcing schedule...
Saturday March 24
West Regional Final: #4 Louisville vs #7 Florida (4:30 ET CBS) - Kevin Harlan, Len Elmore, Reggie Miller
East Regional Final: #1 Syracuse vs #2 Ohio State (7:05 CBS) - Verne Lundquist, Bill Raftery
Sunday March 25
South Regional Final: #1 Kentucky vs #3 Baylor (2:20 CBS) - Jim Nantz, Clark Kellogg
Midwest Regional Final: #1 UNC vs #2 Kansas (5:05 CBS) - Marv Albert, Steve Kerr
We'll have all the nominees from the Sweet 16 for you to vote on tomorrow, and the Elite 8 nominees to follow soon thereafter. I'm hoping Reggie Miller has a strong performance in his last NCAA game of the year so we can get to the full ten nominees for the Elite 8 action! As always, leave us all the announcer and analyst quotes in the comments below or tweet them to us at @awfulannouncing and/or by using the hashtag #BPAA.
It was an example of what I despise having ESPN having broadcasting rights to all bowl games. I ask the question what college football broadcasting team is not only better than ESPN can come up with, but who knows both Alabama and LSU better than any pairing ESPN can come up with...Vern Lunquist and Gary Danielson!
@awfulannouncing dang - I was hoping you'd just go with "unplug the microphone" (lol)
