For this week's podcast we welcome back veteran sports media and golf writer Ed Sherman of The Sherman Report. Ed joins the show to chat about CBS Sports' massive week with the NCAA Tournament Final Four and The Masters and his Q&A with CBS Sports ubervoice Jim Nantz. We break down the coverage of both events including...
-Jim Nantz's position as CBS Sports' #1 announcer and his identity with the Masters.
-Why sports fans don't have passionate feelings regarding Nantz.
-The major headline of CBS and Turner's NCAA Tournament coverage.
-Should Charles Barkley return to next year's tournament?
-Which announcers were most outstanding this year?
-The reverence CBS pays Augusta National and whether it's over the top.
-CBS vs NBC's golf teams.
-Can too much of a good thing really be a good thing with Tiger Woods?
-Ed's dark horses for the Back 9 on Sunday.
All that and more on this week's AA Podcast.
I like how Ed Sherman pointed out that other than Jim Nantz, Verne Lundquist didn't start broadcasting as a PBP voice for College Basketball on CBS untill March of this year too!!!
@awfulannouncing STILL cant believe he blew that call! I don't think he was ready. it was a one-and-one and maybe he didn't realize it?
