March Madness 2012: NCAA Tournament Announcing Teams Released

As you surely know by now, there will be no Gus Johnson during this year’s NCAA Tournament. This is terrible news because Gus is so much fun in big moments, has his own Law dictating games must be close and exciting, and because his style of little-preparation-but-lots-of-enthusiasm is perfect for the NCAA Tournament format.

However, NCAA Tournament announcing will continue to go on even in Gus’ absence. And today we found out who the announcing teams will be for the 2012 edition of March Madness.

2012 NCAA Tournament Announcing Teams

Via Card Chronicle, here are this year’s NCAA Tournament announcing teams and sideline reporters:

  • Jim Nantz / Clark Kellogg*
  • Marv Albert / Steve Kerr*
  • Verne Lundquist / Bill Raftery*
  • Kevin Harlan / Len Elmore / Reggie Miller*
  • Ian Eagle / Jim Spanarkel
  • Brian Anderson / Dan Bonner
  • Tim Brando / Mike Gminski
  • Spero Dedes / Bob Wenzel

* – indicates one of the four regional announcing teams

Note: Tracy Wolfson, Craig Sager, Lesley Visser, Marty Snider, Lewis Johnson, Jaime Maggio and Otis Livingston will serve as courtside reporters throughout the tournament.

My biggest gripe? No Dan Dakich. At least, not yet (join the movement!). Hopefully someday.

Another name unfortunately missing from the roster this year is Jay Bilas. But at least we still have Bill Raftery.

The First Four games will be called by the Nantz/Kellogg/Kerr trio as well as Eagle and Spanarkel. The Final Four will be called by Nantz, Kellogg, and Kerr as well.

And once again there will be two studios this year.

  • CBS Studio: Greg Gumbel and Ernie Johnson with Charles Barkley, Greg Anthony, and Kenny Smith
  • TBS Studio: Matt Winer with Seth Davis and Steve Smith
  • Things shift come regional time.

So there you go. Get excited.

March is the best sports month of the year in my opinion, because March Madness is the greatest sporting even of the year. So Gus or no Gus, this March will still have run-away-from-the-cops speed in relation to the other sports months on the 2012 calendar.

(And, on the down low, ask any Big Ten hoops fan; most will tell you that Gus has been somewhat mailing it in this year. It has certainly seemed that way during IU games. I just haven’t gotten same Gus chills I used to get during games.)

With that said, here’s some Gus:
