CBS' Tony Romo riding high entering first Super Bowl broadcast The Cougars were a force with which to be reckoned during Bilas' playing days — he recalls watching television and marveling at the Phi Slama Jama game against Louisville's Doctors of Dunk in — and thus he has a keen sense of the distance that Sampson has brought the program.
They've lost once this year in a game they probably should have won. You don't go unless you're legit. The show was before Davis' days as host, but it looms large in "GameDay" annals because of Lee Corso's verbal slip into NSFW language while donning the school's Shasta mascot head at the show's end.
It has gone down in 'GameDay' lore," Davis said, chuckling. Corso is the king. He can get away with it. We try to avoid it.
Also, even as great as Duke-North Carolina was the other night, they play again next week, they might play the week after that, and if things fall right in the NCAA Tournament , they might play again.
Saturday's show, for example, will include a segment on officiating, including the two-game suspension of Iowa coach Fran McCaffery for directing profanity toward a Big Ten official and the brouhaha surrounding SEC official Anthony Jordan, who made a controversial foul call in an LSU-Tennessee game and then was found to have on social media a photo from five years ago of himself holding an LSU T-shirt.
Seth and Jay are dynamic and strong and opinionated.
You can't spend an entire basketball show breaking down games and talking about opponents. The sport is not conductive to that because of the way that championships are decided.

That's the kind of attention that makes a "GameDay" visit such a big deal for local fans who show up for the live broadcast each week. It's gratifying. You get a rush when you go to a place and see that fans are excited.
They're proud of what the program has accomplished and can accomplish. Interest is up.
I gave this five stars I'm really enjoying this app especially for the price!
The product on the floor has improved immeasurably in the last four years, based on rules changes that have emphasized freedom of movement. Scoring is up because people can show off their skills.
That program has been resurrected from the scrap heap in many ways, so I don't know if you call it validation or look at it as a reward, but a 'GameDay' visit certainly is recognition of a tremendous job and a great team.
The ratings were good in our time slot, and people were watching," Solomon said. Solomon said the first show Sunday will include an interview with Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta, and the March 10 show will feature an Astros spring training report.
Under its current management, the Houston RSN has provided the bare minimum to local viewers since assuming the Astros and Rockets telecast contracts from bankrupt Comcast SportsNet Houston in the fall of The same held true for the team's playoff run and for every Rockets playoff appearance thus far.
Let me be clear, by the way, that I'm not casting any aspersions at the crews that handle Rockets and Astros game production. My issue is strictly with management.
If it requires new management to get the network off the schneid, then I hope Turner brings in new management. First, though, Turner has management issues of its own to negotiate with Friday's announcement that David Levy, who as president of Turner Sports and, eventually, the entire Turner division of Time Warner, announced that he was leaving the company in the wake of the merger.
Accordingly, I don't expect any extra Rockets playoff coverage this year. But, if the Astros do make the playoffs, I am slightly more confident that the locals will be instructed to snap into action and provide the coverage that viewers deserve.
Also departing in the wake of the appeals court ruling is Richard Pepler, HBO's CEO, who has presided over that network's remarkable run of scripted entertainment with shows that have won more than Emmys.
That's another element of the puzzle that will bear watching as well. Four DVRs, no waiting Have we reached a turning point in the sports chatter industry? NBC Sports Philadelphia has canceled its long-running "Philly Sports Talk" daily talk show, a staple of the channel since its launch.
