    All three are good decisions.

    Others in are the 1966 NCAA champion Texas Western team, Van Chancellor, former NBA referee Mendy Rudolph and international coaches Pedro Ferrandiz of Spain and Mirko Novosel of Yugoslavia.

    In addition to Dickie V falling short, Eddie Sutton also didn't make it.
  2. Oh, there will be hell to pay tonight on TV.
    Also, no Eddie Sutton, but yes to Roy Williams, is a bit of a joke.

    Why the fuck would Vitale even be up for consideration? Do they have a broadcaster's wing?

    You know what's more stupid? AP did an entire sidebar on Vitale falling short.

    No, there is no broadcaster's wing. Vitale was considered as a contributor to the sport of basketball.

    There's going to be hell to pay tonight on TV? Billy Packer is popping a bottle of champagne to celebrate Duke Vitale not getting in. I have to agree about Roy Williams. Eddie Sutton doesn't get in, but Huckleberry Hound does? I don't get it. ???

    The TV in question, on which there will be hell to pay, is located elsewhere on your cable package.

    What did he contribute? Annoying commentary? Love of all things Duke? A 34-64 record with the Pistons? Winning with Terry Tyler, John Long and Terry Duerod?

    Vitale is horrible. He's been horrible for a long time.

    Being horrible isn't the issue, tho I agree.
    He was considered as a contributor to the sport and has contributed nothing

    Just playing devil's advocate here ... were the terms "March Madness," "Sweet 16," "Elite Eight" or "Final Four" in college basketball fans' vocabulary before Vitale? Or in some way did he help turn the NCAA Tournament from a simple tournament into more of an event, complete with wall-to-wall first- and second-round coverage by Vitale's employer?
