While watching “SEC Storied: Going Big,” a documentary about Sam Bowie, KSR reader Stephen caught this shot of a young Alan Cutler that’s so good I had to share it with you this afternoon. Along with some notes because it’s a really slow day and I’m bored.
CBS is expanding the Selection Show to TWO HOURS OH GOD WHY
It’s already a bit much to stretch the bracket unveiling into a one-hour special, but CBS is taking it one step further, expanding this year’s show to TWO hours. Ugh. The show will go from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. ET following the Big Ten championship game. It will feature even more on-air reaction, analysis, interviews, and a lengthy interview with the chairman of this year’s selection committee, Joe Castiglione.
Somehow, you know CBS will put Kentucky’s bracket last because they know Big Blue Nation will watch the whole dang thing.
Something seems a little off about these SEC standings
Maybe it’s just me.
