The Madness Has Begun


Today FishbowlNY had lunch over at the CBS Broadcast Center for its 12-hour NCAA Basketball Championship Tip-Off Party, where sports journalists, agents and assorted executives gathered for cold-cuts, cold drinks and regionally-tuned flat panel TVs. Say what you want about college basketball, but this time of year grown, professional media people — many of whom wouldn’t know Mike Krzyzewski if he fell onto the hoods of their cars — become strangely knowledgable about Wichita State University’s athletic recruitment program.

Madness, indeed.

Our resident bracketologist Greg Lindsay will be filing from CBS throughout the afternoon, provided the Illini survive the first round.
