NEW YORK -- Look out, March Madness. Charles Barkley is coming.

Sir Charles brings his brash style to the NCAAs. (AP)
CBS and Turner executives confirmed Tuesday that the brash Hall of Famer and other big names from TNT's NBA broadcasts would be part of their joint coverage of the NCAA tournament starting this season.

Expect Marv Albert to call some early round games and Barkley and Kenny Smith to offer analysis from the studio under the 14-year, $10.8 billion deal the two companies signed in April.

Tournament games will air on CBS and three of Turner's cable channels: TNT, TBS and truTV. Sports chiefs Sean McManus of CBS and David Levy of Turner said at the Sports Media & Technology conference in New York that the companies would combine their rosters of basketball commentators.

CBS will still broadcast the Final Four each year through 2015, so the network's lead team of Jim Nantz and Clark Kellogg will keep calling the national semifinal and championship games, though a third person could join the crew.

Good bid VT

Maybe Greenberg made a mistake changing his schedule philosophy?

They'll get more credit for losing this game than beating some sub 200 RPI cupcake.
The Orangemen are just a rock-solid, consistent winner that hasn't suffered a losing season since 1968-69.

Either way it's unimpressive. A fraud's a fraud.

I already see Greenberg bitching about how they did what the committee asked and played tough comp. Joke

A good source told me the Cuse players think they are much better than they are. I don't expect much from this crew.

Bilas had a nice slam on Greenberg's claim last year that it was tough to win at Campbell.
I'm havin a good time, Jacques Martin's tryin to ruin it.

I have never seen a cramp get treated like that in my life in the Louisville game.

What a pussy.

Is this comparable to the Big East winning a few BCS bowl games? Talk about a cake walk.

A 5 loss Pitt team going to a BCS game = Quality

Glad I didn't end up getting tix to Duke-Butler at the Meadowlands 12/4 because of closing on a house that weekend.

Duke-St Johns at MSG in January will be better than that one.

Not for nothing but let's stick to real hoops in this thread from now on.

My high school basketball team could have beaten my second grade team 100 times in a row too.

Not sure what to expect this year from Uconn. Walker is nasty and may win BE POY. Also have some glaring holes, especially in front court after Oriahki.
Boise St. = THE SUCK

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Ohio St. is real good this year, so this will be his final UConn hoops post of the season.
