Sorry bout that - but to be honest - I am one of the few out there who hides his head come March Madness time - I am a football purist. Baseball sucks mud, basketball makes me itch and hockey is great in person but I can't stand it on tv.

I love the possible rivalries that can grow from this change - Fl State v Miami, Tech vs. UNC, NC State, MD, UVA... in a few years the seeds will be sown for some good fun as Tech fans are some of the best travelling fans and most of our opponents are now within a few hours drive - it makes things more interesting :)

Come on guys - college b-ball still is fun to watch - stopped watching pros after the Bullets became the Wizards. I even like hockey, tho my Canes have taken a serious nose dive since their Stanely Cup appearance. Dohhhhhh

In person I can stomach baseball, basketball can be ok unless there is a blowout and I have a semi pro team here that I love to watch in person.

I can't stand them on TV though...

it's all or none for me, regardless if its live or not.
ALL football or NOTHING else. i'd almost rather have bamboo shoots shoved under my fingernails, than to sit through a baseball or basketball game.
