What few games I did get to see this weekend were absolute nail biters, that was fantastic. The upsets, you just have to love, and yes I am loving the fact that dook is out.
But I am disappointed with the coverage of the end of the games. For instance this afternoon, my Dad and I were watching the Butler/Tennessee game, which was in overtime, and about 30 seconds away from being over. The broadcast switched without any indication whatsoever to the Davidson/Georgetown upset in the making. My Dad and I were left to wonder, was it a foul, out of bounds, did someone call a time out? The game that was taking place in Raleigh had over 2 minutes to go at this point, where as the one in Birmingham was about to end, and was rather close.
In the past, when watching the tournament, you'd either see or hear Greg Gumble from New York say we are taking you to Birmingham where the Davidson Wildcast are mounting an upset over the #2 seed Georgetown Hoyas. Or if there were two close games/upsets in the making, the broadcast would do a split screen, so you could see both. This did not happen tonight. It is rather frustrating when you really want to know what is going on, and the broadcast switches at play stoppage and you frankly have no clue, and you are sitting their saying hmm well the clock is stopped, maybe a foul...
Both my Dad and myself have a package on our cable that we can watch any of the four games we want, I know we are lucky, not everyone has this luxury, and it is absolutely wonderful. I understand the flipping broadcasts, but please give us warning, okay we have a foul on Butler, and with that we have a media time out, we are going to check in at the RBC to see if Davidson is breaking away!
One more complaint then I am finished, I have often wondered, why you have a GAME RESET? If you were to reset the stats of a game, then wouldn't you have to start over from the initial tip-off in the first half, thus resetting everything?
definition from Merriam-Webster:
1 : to set again or anew <reset type> <reset a diamond> <reset a circuit breaker> 2 : to change the reading of often to zero <reset an odometer>
I know a GAME SUMMARY sounds more YAWN boring, but it is still more accurate! Or perhaps, Game Wrap-Up, Game Recap, or Game Review.
