Gus Johnson’s Announcing Schedule for NCAA March Madness
Gus Johnson has become a bit of a cult figure. His exuberant calls have become instant YouTube and talk radio classics. College basketball fans may be in for more classic Gus Johnson this weekend as he and partner Len Elmore will be among the announcing teams calling the action for the 2011 NCAA Basketball Tournament.
Gus will be behind the mic for First Round (don’t call it a play in) games between UT-San Antonio and Alabama St., and USC and VCU in Dayton, Ohio. Sadly, Thursday & Saturday will be a Gus free days. Gus and partner Len Elmore will T-it-up for 4 games on Friday and 2 more on Sunday. CBS unfortunately has them stuck in cable purgatory of TNT/TruTV, but you can catch them online if you don’t have one or both of those channels.
The complete schedule is below but we’ve highlighted Gus Johnson’s games and included a direct link to watch them online with March Madness on Demand. In the meantime, here’s Gus Johnson’s call from last weekend’s Pac 10 Championship to tide you over.
