ACC Announces TV Deal

The ACC and ESPN officially announced the details of the new TV deal.  Some previously unknown tidbits came to light including the disposition of the Sunday Night basketball games and how both UNC-Duke games would be handled. First, in a move which will undoubtedly require me to upgrade to digital cable, the Sunday Night Game(s) [...]

ESPN, ACC Reach TV Deal

With all the rumblings concerning expansion of other conferences and how it might affect the ACC, this was important for John Swofford to get done:

ESPN won the TV rights to ACC football and basketball in a bidding competition with Fox Sports that was surprisingly close, industry sources say, and as a result made the [...]

Bomani Jones: This Won’t Break Roy

Bomani Jones, formerly of 620 the Bull, has a nice piece over on ESPN.com’s Page2 on Roy Williams and The Lost Season.

But this won’t break him, nor is it close to the beginning of the end of his career. If something does Williams in, it won’t be losing. That’s partially because he’ll never again [...]

This Is Your Advanced Warning

Here is the announcing team for the UNC-UVa game on ESPN Thursday night. (Hat tip: Awful Announcing)

North Carolina @ Virginia (ESPN, 9pm)- Mike Patrick, Bill Raftery

It could be worse.  It could be Patrick and Len Elmore which in combination are a special kind of hell all on their own.  This should only be [...]

Can I Just Say…

…that I find the fact Bobby Knight is doing color commentary for the Louisville-Old Miss game involving a coach(Rebels’ Andy Kennedy) who was arrested last night for assaulting a cab driver to be deliciously ironic on so many levels.

Maybe Knight can gives us to personal insight into why controlling one’s own rage is such [...]

ESPN Gamecast Has Heard Nothing of Tyler Zeller’s Injury

Hat tip to reader keithunc on this one.

Here is a screen shot from the ESPN GameCast of the UNC-UCSB game.

Tyler Zeller was at the game having taken Tyler Hansbrough’s seat beside Marcus Ginyard.  Apparently he managed to hit a jumper from there too.

Dick Vitale Drops All Pretenses

Via Mr Irrelevant is this photo of the extended Vitale family in attendance at the Duke-Maryland game last night.

Now, on one hand, Vitale probably did not tell his sons to come to the game with his grandchildren decked out in Duke gear. Perhaps his sons are Duke fans and this is no different [...]

And ESPN Wonders Why People Call Them DSPN

Since UNC-Duke is less than a week away, you might be looking for something to get yourself fired up for the game.  Maybe you want to rewatch The Foul a dozen times or stare at a picture of Greg Paulus.  And if that does not do the trick then tune in to ESPN NFL Countdown [...]
