2016 NCAA Tournament TV Schedule

The 2016 NCAA Tournament kicks off this Tuesday evening in Dayton with the First Four, and it concludes with the National Championship Game on April 4th in Houston, and on a new network! That's right, this will be the first year that the National Championship will be on TBS, along with the famous teamcasts on TNT and truTV. We also have some changes to tip times this year.

    1. The CBS/Turner logo is the same. The tournament itself has a new logo and I may use that for the predictions and/or the bracket posts.

  4. I know. I love Marv Albert as well. He's the best. Spero Dedes is very underrated. He's a great football and basketball broadcaster.
