Charles Barkley covering the Big Dance?

The combination won't seem so foreign by this time next year.

When CBS joins forces with Turner television to cover the men's NCAA tournament this coming spring, a new wave of analysts will be introduced to audience. That is, unless the audience regularly watches TNT's NBA coverage.

The Associated Press is reporting names normally associated with NBA broadcasts like Barkley, Marv Albert and Kenny Smith, among many others, will be involved in coverage by TBS, TNT and TruTV. CBS and Turner will reportedly combine their respective rosters to fill in all game coverage and studio analysis.

In April, the two companies signed a 14-year, $10.8 billion deal to jointly cover the now-expanded NCAA tournament. Home viewers with cable will now be able to view up to four games in any time slot with the new deal.

What does chuck know about college basketball? Pro analysts watch college hoops and cringe at all the silly mistakes young players make.

Well he did play college ball at Auburn many years ago beyond that they'll probably have a segment of whether he knows this guy plays for a college team or not.

Im Partially kidding, but Barkley not knowing 90% of these college athletes and teams is going to be a lot of fun. I remember when TNT did an NBA Draft in the early 2000's and it was a riot. David Stern had to stop Barkley and tell him to shut up on numerous occasions.

I remember a few years ago Chuck and Kenny were dogging on all the European players not being able to speak English. David Stern walked up to the mic and said "You know, when they first came into the league, Charles and Kenny couldn't speak English either."
