NCAA Tourney Coverage Will Be Bigger, Better… According To Those Doing The Broadcasts

There was a time — back when I was working for The Man — when I would use two of my vacation days each year on the opening Thursday and Friday of the NCAA Tournament.  To me, there’s nothing better event-wise than March Madness.  So on paper, what I’m about to share with you looks pretty good.  On paper.

CBS Sports and Turner Sports announced their plans for NCAA tourney coverage today and a few of the main points are listed below:


* Every game of the tournament will be broadcast nationally.  This is a first.  If you’ve got cable or satellite television in your home, you can see every game on CBS, TBS, TNT or TruTV.  No longer will you have to worry about your local CBS affiliate showing a game that you don’t want to see.

* The start times for games will be more staggered than in years past.  Fans will literally be able to watch tourney action from noon to midnight without the usual 6-7:30pm break in the action.

* CBS will carry 26 games including the Final Four.  TBS will carry 16 games, TNT 12, and TruTV will air 13 including the First Four play-in games, which debut this year.


Again, all that looks good on paper.  Whether or not basketball fans take to the new broadcast format — and the new broadcast teams — remains to be seen.
