Sweet 16 Announcer Assignments

A close follower of how CBS schedules this probably could’ve guessed it, but, courtesy of Awful Announcing its Johnson/Elmore to Salt Lake, Enberg/Bilas to Syracuse, Vern/Raf to St. Louis and Nantz/Kellogg to Houston:

Thursday, March 25th

#5 Butler vs. #1 Syracuse (Salt Lake City, 7:07pm)- Gus Johnson, Len Elmore
#11 Washington vs. #2 West Virginia (Syracuse, 7:27pm)- Dick Enberg, Jay Bilas
#6 Xavier vs #2 Kansas State (Salt Lake City, 9:37pm)- Gus Johnson, Len Elmore
#12 Cornell vs. #1 Kentucky (Syracuse, 9:57pm)- Dick Enberg, Jay Bilas

Friday, March 26th

#6 Tennessee vs. #2 Ohio State (St. Louis, 7:07pm)- Verne Lundquist, Bill Raftery
#10 St. Mary’s vs. #3 Baylor (Houston, 7:27pm)- Jim Nantz, Clark Kellogg
9:37 pm
#9 Northern Iowa vs. #5 Michigan State (St. Louis, 9:37pm)- Verne Lundquist, Bill Raftery
#4 Purdue vs. #1 Duke (Houston, 9:57pm)- Jim Nantz, Clark Kellogg

My friend Brian will say I’m nuts but I’m glad I don’t have Gus Johnson making my ears bleed during any Ohio St games.  AA doesn’t have the Regional Finals schedule, but I assume Saturday will be Salt Lake at 4:40pm and Syracuse at 7:05pm, then Sunday will be St. Louis at 2:40pm and Houston at 5:05pm (with 60 Minutes scheduled to start at 7pm).
