March Madness , the annual college basketball ritual that leads to the Final Four and national title game, will unfold on a traditional TV schedule, according to Turner Sports and CBS Sports . The broadcast partners confirmed plans for the tournament, which the NCAA said last month it would hold entirely in the state of Indiana (and almost all of it in Indianapolis) as a safety precaution. In 2020, the abrupt cancellation of the tournament as Covid-19 was starting to sweep across the U.S. became one of the grim early milestones of the pandemic. The absence of the tournament was estimated to have cost the NCAA $600 million, and networks and advertisers lost highly valuable live programming. Beginning March 18, all 67 tournament games will be carried by four networks — TBS, CBS, TNT and truTV – and streamed on the NCAA’s March Madness Live app. CBS will air the two Final Four matchups on Saturday, April 3 and the national championship game on Monday, April 5. … [Read more...] about CBS And Turner Set Broadcast Plans For NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament

No one will ever call Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles the Greatest of All-Time. That title belongs to New England’s Tom Brady. But Foles, or St. Nick as fans can now call him, out-dueled The G.O.A.T. at Super Bowl LII, bringing the Eagles their first Super Bowl championship in history, 41-33, and winning the MVP for the game. It was the biggest offensive shootout in Super Bowl history, with the teams combining for more than 1,000 yards in total offense, and capped a Cinderella story for Foles, who was signed this year as a backup and was little used until starter Carson Wentz injured a knee in December. “This game has been relentless, just relentless.” said commentator Cris Collinsworth as he watched the tense fourth quarter unfold. He wasn’t exaggerating, as the two teams stood toe-to-toe for the entire game, trading points from the first quarter through the final incomplete Hail Mary pass by a desperate New England.
