    Q&A related to NCAAT broadcast schedules/announcers &c

    I've been poking around the CBS site for the last half-hour, and I can't find the broadcast schedule. The ACC site says Duke plays at 7:10 p.m. Thursday, which makes sense. Miami is a 12:30 game on Friday, Carolina's in the 7:10 slot Friday, and Clemson gets the late game - a 9:30 start on Friday. However, they only have the ACC teams, and I'd like to see the whole bracket.

    If you find a link to a tourney bracket with broadcast times, please reply to this post and share with the rest of us.

    Thanks!

    And if you want a list of times in order by day so you can plan your work schedule, just check out the "scoreboard" on CBS sports. Here is Thursday's schedule:

    Wait, no, that was 60-some-odd years ago.

    I'm trying to plan my Saturday at the moment, and unfortunately the scoreboards won't show the times for the Saturday games until after the Thursday games are played. If anyone finds a link to the expected times (I'll hope/assume that Duke and UCLA can win their first games) please let me know.

    The pdf linked above shows second round-times. If Duke wins they will play at 2:10 EDT on Saturday

    Does anyone have any historic recollections as to whether there are afternoon games in the 3rd round? Are those game usually played all at night?

    No, two prime-time slots, around 7:00 and 9:30.

    CBS Announcing Teams

    The ACC only got four bids but they dominate the color announcers for CBS - Bilas (Duke), Elmore (Md), Bonner (Va), Spanarkel (Duke), Packer (Wake), Gminski (Duke) and Wenzel (Duke assistant coach). According to the link below, Wenzel and Bolerjack will do the Duke game.

    Wenzel seems competent to me but I suspect we can count on several complaining about the announcing team for Thursday's game and their anti-Duke bias. Personally, I like all eight color men (Raftery is the eighth) but if you forced me to choose, I would take Spanarkel. I don't hear him as much so his views are fresh and, based on a small sample, he seems to do a very good job of identifying and describing the finer points of the game to the viewer.

    I like all but Packer and Elmore. Bilas is good but not as good as rest, IMO. But I still like him better than those other jokers. The Raft is just fun. I also like the Gman more and more. Maybe it's just that we get to hear him so much in ACC. Congrats to him on "Legends" BTW.

    I have never liked Wenzel. But he keeps coming back each year.

    It's a shame they had to harness a high-flyer like Gus Johnson with an anchor like Len Elmore. I'll be at the games in Anaheim - I may see if I can hunt Jay Bilas out and say hi while I'm there.
    Just be you. You is enough. - K, 4/5/10, 0:13.8 to play, 60-59 Duke.

    You're all jealous hypocrites. - Titus on Laettner

    Bob Wenzel was an assistant coach at Duke under Bill Foster (later surviving brain surgery, quite a story in its own right) and I think pretty unlikely to trash Duke on Thursday. Don't think I've ever noticed him trashing anyone on the air, come to think of it. He's not a spectacular commentator, but generally is one who highlights the positives of a game. And think of how many worse ones could have been assigned to that pod.

    I don't think CBS will announce them until they know the winners from Thursday. It's all about TV.

    The winners of Duke/Belmont and Zona/WVU will be at 2:10pm. The winners of Baylor/Purdue and UGA/Xavier is 30 minutes after the first game.

    . . . and just to keep everyone informed, Duke's #1, undefeated MLax team plays Georgetown at 1000 (on ESPN, although I'd also check ESPN-U).
