|The Sweet 16 is always better when we get a non-BCS school into the party. Ohio, hello (US Presswire)|
I gotta catch a flight.
I'm heading from Portland to Phoenix, one tournament hotspot to another. Don't worry, though -- I did get in a podcast call this morning, and I think you're going to love it. Two of the Web's best media digesters/analysts make their pod debuts to discuss the play, the production and the TV experience from the first weekend of the NCAAs. Quickish founder, curator and editor Dan Shanoff and Sports Business Daily/Sports Business Journal media ace John Ourand share their opinions on CBS and Turner's second year of broadcasting four games on four channels; the March Madness Live experiment on the Internet; why Twitter is the best sports bar you can attend; and what the biggest story lines going forward are for the Sweet 16 and Elite Eight.
Think of it like this: You've got a lot of thoughts on what you just experienced from Thursday to Sunday. Yes, some of it is about the games, but a lot of it is what you went through when watching the games. Today's podcast touches on that.
Follow Dan on Twitter here and John here. Both highly recommended.
