Louisville is -1.5 over Washington. That's probably the first time ever that a #1 seed has been an underdog this early in the tourney.

I hate regional coverage. They should only have one game going at a time! I live in an SEC area so I'll be forced to watch UK, though I rather be watching the UNC game.

then cheer for a quick blowout
in my opinion, they have done a really good job of switching away from regional coverage, to cover the more exciting games..
of course, this has pissed some people off, when they lose coverage of their team, when they fall behind by 10 in the first half.

I already have an e-mail in begging my CBS affiliate to show the alternate games on the HD channel.

Since I live in Raleigh rather than Durham, does that mean that the State game is preferred over the Duke one vis a vis regional coverage?

I bet they offer both games locally (probably put one on UPN or something like that).

Huh, I thought Raleigh-Durham was one town, like Winston-Salem or Minneapolisaintpaul.

Definitely looking forward to the OSU-Zona game and the Mich St-Duke games.

BTW, that picture looks like they're trying to give the Heimlich to Hodge.

Bit of a blow for Villanova... Curtis Sumpter is done for the year with a torn ACL

That was crazy! That's really, really inexcusable. Terrible defense.

yeah, all 3 defenders went to cover the 3-point shooter and they totally forgot about the guy in the post

Luckily, Jason Fraser looks like he's finally stepping up and living up to the hype. But that was only one game. Either way, I didn't really think that they would have a chance against UNC with or without Sumpter.

That really sucks about Sumpter. I have Nova in the Elite 8 and I really need all the folks who have UNC knocked out.

One thing is for sure - they will not show NCSU/Wisconsin to more than 5% of the country. They don't want everyone falling asleep before the late games tipoff.

Good lord, that's about as annoying as hearing hockey announcers talk about Carolina being a state.

Fucking Channel 9 in DC. Not only are they airing the same games on analog and digital channels, they picked the lamer matchup in each timeslot: UWM/Illinois and WVU/TTU.

Please Ch. 13 in Baltimore, have some common sense and air the other games.
