The NCAA Tournament got off to a great start yesterday afternoon with fantastic finishes all over the country, which is good for everyone from fans to the networks showing the games. While the games were great, one thing stood out to me while watching the games on the various networks, there are too many people doing the halftime shows. The Turner based networks and CBS, both have teams of four doing their half time show.
I know that the networks want their people to be part of the coverage but there is no need to to have that many people on two different networks. Some of the people on the networks are NBA guys and have no right being on a halftime shows for March Madness.
With the influx of NBA, great college analyst are getting lost like Seth Davis. Davis, who is a reporter for Sports Illustrated, is one of the best college reporters out there and has a great mind for the game, I guess that come from his Duke roots.
Having that many people taking part in a half time show is not the right amount to handle 15 minutes of time that you have to fill. With that many, people with the best information get lost and that is exactly what is happening with the NCAA Tournament.
