I'm in the Allen School neighborhood & have had no TV access since Wednesday ~ Power came back Saturday afternoon.
The Set Top Box is just blinking like a Christmas tree
Anyone have the particulars as to what the heck is taking so long or any similar experiences?
Per CBS website. Called the BTT and now follow Michigan to Indy. I like the continuity here. Not typically a huge Nantz guy but sometimes in the NCAA tourney CBS will send out like interns to call your region if they run out of actual announcers. This is a pretty good draw.
No link because..... there is really nothing else to read.
Apologies if 1) this has already been posted, or, 2) "dude, they are just announcers!?! Nobody cares! Get a life and stop looking at the CBS website to see who is calling the game, loser!"
Here's your daily reminder:
If you made a bracket last year just log-in to your ESPN account, create a bracket, and rejoin the group.

This has been brought up in the past by a couple Mods, but is there a possibility of giving out points for finishing in 1st-3rd place?
Also, here are a few ways to watch games (play-in games begin tonight):
- On TV: CBS, TruTV, TNT, & TBS will be airing all the games
- Online: http://www.ncaa.com/march-madness-live/watch ; must use TV service provider credentials
- On the NCAA March Madenss Apps, click on links below for your OS (also must use TV service provider credentials):
Unfortunately it's no longer free (I think it used to be). Of course free streams pop up right before game time. If anybody knows of other viewing avenues, please let us know. Thankfully I have awesome in-laws that let me use their credentials for this type of thing.
With March Madness upon us and many brackets to be filled out, I thought it might be helpful to us all if we have a place to pool all of the online resources that can be used to help fill out brackets.
I'll try and update this post to include anything from in the comments to make it easier to find them without having to search through all the comments.
"People are ripping me and I'm sitting there going 'wait, they just ran through the Big Ten Tournament,'" Dakich said on Monday on the Russillo and Kanell show. "They have a bonding thing with the plane crash, their point guard (Derrick Walton Jr.) is great, their big guy is an incredibly tough cover in Mo Wagner.' I mean, it's not like I picked Jacksonville State. I picked the Big Ten champs for crying out loud and I'm catching hell. I don't like it."
Dakich was then asked if he would pick Michigan to win if his son wasn't on the team. "No," he said with a laugh. "No, no, no."
For the first time in 19 years (31 years if you go by the official totals), Michigan has an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.
It's been a long time. Way too long.
Here's how we've performed in the past with auto bids.
