Day 1 of JB = BJ (big joke)!

Six rounds of this?

In case you missed it, CBS anchor James Brown will call the entire tournament this year. He started by validating this terrible decision when he called Aaron Afflalo “Mr. Afflalo.” OK, that’s barely fine even sarcastically. But then he called UCLA bench warmer Michael Roll “Mr. Roll.” We know JB doesn’t know the names and we know the only college hoop he’s probably seen this year was on the east coast. But please stop calling college kids “Mr.”

I’m particulary upset by the pro-JB decision by CBS because it means that Gus Johnson will only call the first two rounds. In case you don’t know, Gus Johnson makes the games exciting and any game he calls almost always turns into a great, tight game. I know it’s just coincidence, but still. Gus Johnson adds something. JB makes me think I’m about to see Peyton Manning start warming up. No good.

Gus Johnson, good. James Brown, bad.

Here’s a Gus Johnson sample for those of you who aren’t sure.

Coming to a high school near you?

Isolated incedent or developing trend? And what was Pokey thinking about?

When it happens, not if it happens, at the prep level, will it be as frowned upon?

The shot above is that of former LSU women’s basketball coach Pokey Chatman. She recently resigned because of an alleged, inappropriate sexual relationship with a former player. It also came out that LSU disallowed her to have one-on-one contact with players following a February complaint from an assistant coach. It’s not known whether Chatman’s actions with the former player happened when the player was actually on the team, but a source close to the team told “that’s my understanding.”

Aram thought: It’s only a matter of time before a female high school sports coach gets popped for having “inappropriate relations” with a female member of her team. Yeah, I know, it will be a change of pace, compared to your typical male coach/female player fiasco. But will it be met with the same furor? Any parents have a take?
