Between the above 6 hours on CBS, the other conference finals on ESPN that weekend, and the rest of Arch Madness, my DVR will be flooded after driving home from STL.

Um, yeah. I know the mighty, eyeball-grabbing, must see TV Shockers left, but CBS is signed to carry the game thru 2020 with an option to extend until 2024. (Spoiler-They will!)

Will much of the Valley game be shown? Most college basketball games go over 2 hours and we have seen in the past CBS will cut from the Valley Championship game to go to the Big Ten game. I bet it starts on CBS Sports Network and only Valley school cities will see the end on CBS.

The WSU-Cincy game could be a matchup of 2 top-10 teams with a league title on the line. That should provide a really good audience leading into the MVC championship game. This should work our really well for exposure for the Valley.

I never know what to think of Mick Cronin. I feel like he really overachieves with less talented teams and underachieves with more talented teams. On paper, they should be really good but past history with Cronin says they're a fringe top 25 team that makes an early exit.

Are we the lead-in for the Big Ten tournament championship this year (played a week earlier than usual to get Madison Square Garden)?

In that case I'm hoping for quadruple overtime as payback for Delany's 20 game conference schedule.

CBS cut away from the end of our championship game for a meaningless Big Ten game a couple of years ago. I don't think we have the leverage here.

CBS cut away from the 2013 Creighton-Wichita final to an IU/Michigan game (both ranked top 10 iirc) in Indiana & Michigan, but I believe the rest of the country was spared.

Ironically, the losers of those 2 games should've been the national championship matchup that year.
