Help! Selection Sunday coverage

    Any good ideas how to spiff up coverage of Selection Sunday in Monday's paper/Web site without the cliche team by team capsules, local tourney-bound team reactions, etc.???

    Yeah, why would you want to run all that stuff?

    Because, Henry, spiffing it up is better than reporting the news and analyzing the bracket. It's all about spiffing it up.

    Spnited---"spiffing it up" perhaps a bad choice of words. I simply want to make our day-after Selection Sunday coverage something that is useful for readers, not just the same old print-wasting, wordy drivel of gamers, reax pieces and sidebars that is already old news by the time the paper hits the sidewlak at 6 a.m. and continues to drive readers to other media to find timely analysis.

    Don't know what time zone clutchcargo is in, but I think most papers are doing well just to get in the basics in the Monday paper after Selection Sunday.
