Turner Sports/CBS had a rather awesome idea for the Final Four: one channel has Jim Nantz, Steve Kerr, and Greg Anthony calling the game -- you know, as always -- and one channel is equipped for fans of the individual teams. For example, for Wisconsin/Kentucky, there are Wisconsin-specific announcers like Wayne Larrivee on truTV and Kentucky-specific announcers like Rex Chapman on TBS.
People on the internet did NOT understand this phenomenon:
Charles Barkley had his say, calling these idiotic people... well, he called them idiots.:
Lotsa Bo Ryan cutaways on TruTV teamcast.Coach Calipari is virtually invisible.Wildcats teamcast reading Tweets from past KY stars: not 4 me— Dennis Deninger (@DDeninger) April 6, 2014
#trutv terrible coverage and announcers. And what's with the 18 shots of Uconn coach and not one of FL?— Kip Patrick (@kippat) April 6, 2014
i must be watching a local Kentucky station....— Greta Van Susteren (@gretawire) April 6, 2014
Maybe TNT could show the #Wisconsin bench after the Badgers score.— Ann Wallack (@annwallack) April 6, 2014
TNT coverage of the Final 4 is horrible. Rex Chapman, is rooting, on air, for the frickin' Wildcats! He should be yanked. On Wisconsin!— Bob Fregolle (@BFregolle) April 6, 2014
#tntfinalfour the broadcast is bull s#!t. It's the Kentucky show. Sorry Wisconsin TNT doesn't know your team is playing too. GO WISCONSIN.— Michael Moore (@CiGar4me) April 6, 2014
TNT is all over Kentucky's nuts. They have yet to talk about anything to do with Wisconsin. Isn't Wisconsin winning?— BMK (@Bigmankyle14) April 6, 2014
Watching TNT coverage of Wisconsin & UK. Apparently Wisconsin did not show up, cuz not one word about them I past 5 minutes. All UK.— Steve Smith (@AcefcspSteve) April 6, 2014
Even Detlef Schrempf couldn't figure it out!
Is it just me or is somebody announcing the Kentucky vs Wisconsin game not quite objective? Come on TNT.— Detlef Schrempf (@Dschrempf) April 6, 2014
The vast majority of these, as you'll notice, are people on TNT that should be on truTV, rather than the other way around, because, well, nobody knows where/what truTV is.
But of course, the capper: PEOPLE WHO WANTED THE BIG BANG THEORY
