    Default NCAA Tournament Coverage: ESPN schedule

    For the fourth year, ESPN3 will provide an exclusive four-screen, four-mat viewing experience unique to wrestling on the multi-screen sports network. Beginning Thursday, March 15, at noon, ESPN3 viewers will have the opportunity to view hundreds of individual matches throughout the three day tournament, utilizing the resource. Shawn Kenney and three-time All-American Jim Gibbons will voice sessions one and two on ESPN3.

    For the sixth consecutive year, two of the four quarterfinals, as well as the semifinals, will be televised on ESPNU in a revised side-by-side format to maximize the HD viewing experience, allowing viewers to catch the action in two matches at the same time.

    ESPNU will televise the Championship Medal Round and the individual weight class Championships on Saturday, March 17, with the Finals at 7:30 p.m. ET on ESPN. During the Finals, two referees per match will wear a microphone, providing fans with even more access and understanding of the action.

    Do my eyes deceive me that there is no Jeff Blatnick?
    I bet is has been twenty years or more that he has been covering it.
    I never approved the hatred he inspired among the hardcore fans, but I did not think he was very good and will not miss him.

    I think he was covering ACCs for ESPN3 last weekend. I didn't watch online since I was there so I'm not sure, but I heard the people from the ACC office mentioning his name the day before as one of the two guys that was going to be doing it.
