Wow, does CBS/Turner have a loaded announce crew or what?
Nantz/Kellogg Verne/Raft Marv/Kerr Ian/Jim Harlan/Elmore
That is a stacked lineup. Have you noticed that they've spaced the first set of Thurs. games? Its 12:15, 12:40 and 1:40. I remember when the games were 12:15,12:25 and 12:40.

@awfulannouncing no Bill Walton :(
@awfulannouncing Isn't Nantz required by law to do Duke games?
@awfulannouncing sadly no Bill Walton...or Gus
@awfulannouncing instantly scanning to look for Charles Barkley. I know I'm not the only one.
@awfulannouncing That time of year to figure out what channel truTV is again.
@awfulannouncing also known as all crappy.
@awfulannouncing Same error the copied CBS material had... Duke is not a 1 and Albany is not a 16.
@awfulannouncing We need Gus Johnson back.
@BSansom08 Oh no doubt, he was the best..but I'm pretty sure he's no longer w\/ CBS. Maybe Fox now? That's prob. why.
@revafriedel i'd argue admirable, but that's just me!
This will also be the 1st year that Tom Hart and Melissa Lee have worked as PBP voices and that Swin Cash has worked as an analyst and that Maria Taylor has worked as an analyst and Sideline Reporter for the Women's NCAA Tournament on the ESPN family of networks too!!!
I have a correction to make, Greg Anthony was in the Studio for the 1st Four on TruTv last night and he was working double duty, because he was also working as an analyst for the NBATv Fan Night Game last night too and Rex Chapman wasn't in the Studio for Trutv's coverage of the 1st Four last night, even though Turner Sports put out a Press Release on Sunday saying that he would be and Marv Albert made the same mistakes when announcing that Inside March Madness from Turner's Atlanta Studios would have EJ, Charles Barkley, Rex Chapman and Steve Smith before correcting himself and saying oops my bad Greg Anthony is with the guys in our Atlanta studios and not Rex Chapman like this Press Release right in front of me says to which Steve Kerr repied Greg Anthony is outraged in our Studios to which Marv Albert replies sorry Greg i didn't mean to give you the short end of the stick.
However Rex Chapman has said on his Twitter page that he will be in Atlanta as a Studio analyst for the next few nights!
Giantsfan1982 this is the 3rd year in a row that they have been spacing out the schedule like that and don't be suprised if the 3rd game from Utah starts later than 7:20 ET because they are suppose to have a 50 minute break between games 2 and 3 and the 2nd game from Utah is schedule to start at approximately 4:10 ET,this also goes for the 3rd game from San Jose on Thursday too which is schedule to start at 7:27 ET, don't be suprised if it starts later and the same can be said about the 3rd game from Texas that is scheduled to start at 7:27 ET on Friday, it also might happen for the 3rd game from Dayton that is scheduled to start at 7:15 ET on Friday afternoon too!!!
What suprises me is that on Thursday and Friday TRUTV changed from having a 1:30 Pregame show from 11-12:30 ET for the last 2 years, to only having a 1 Hour pregame Show from 11-12:00 ET starting this year this is according to reports by Sports Media News and could be wrong.
@CUbsfan May I ask where you got that information? I can't find it anywhere for some reason! And it's usually easily accessible.
@JustinDeFeo I think you're right about him being with Fox. I know he hasn't been with CBS for a couple years. Some of these guys are brutal
@awfulannouncing hahaha works for me!! What a run that was...I think I'm gonna cry ;)
Crippenstation yes you may ask me where i got that information from, I got it from DIALGlobal's official website which normally shows who will be broadcasting their games if you click on the games.
