On a day when ESPN dominated college basketball on television, the home of March basketball made a huge splash in the news.
Seldom do personnel moves in television bring as much universal praise as what we saw Tuesday, when CBS Sports president Sean McManus announced Charles Barkley would be a part of CBS and Turner's March Madness coverage four months from now.
I do have questions about how Barkley will be able to switch up/off his oft-critical commentary of the pro players, which can get brutal (and brutally funny), and temper that toward the college kids. But aside from that, this is probably going to be pretty fantastic. In fact, Barkley's lack of knowledge about the small-time school/players could create some pretty good moments.
