Obviously the biggest change for this year’s NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament on CBS, is the fact that Billy Packer will not be involved in the Madness. Because of that move, Clark Kellogg is taking over his seat next to Jim Nantz, and Greg Anthony will be filling Kellogg’s role in-studio. Other than that, nothing has changed since last season. Here are your pairings, and while their locations haven’t quite been sorted out, you can plan on the top four teams being your Sweet Sixteeners….
Jim Nantz/Clark Kellogg
Dick Enberg/Carter Blackburn/Jay Bilas
Verne Lundquist/Bill Raftery
Gus Johnson/Len Elmore
Kevin Harlan/Dan Bonner
Ian Eagle/Jim Spanarkel
Craig Bolerjack/Bob Wenzel
Tim Brando/Mike Gminski
(Reporters: Lesley Visser, Tracy Wolfson and Sam Ryan)
Again, I’ve never really had a problem with the pairings that CBS comes up with, and after last season the only team I would have dropped would have been Brando and Gminski. Should be another fun month of March, my friends!
