  • COLUMN: A Final Four for the ages

    The air around college basketball buzzes heavy with Wildcat swoon and Louisville “who knew!” this week.
    Louisville earned its party crasher role by bravery, certainly, but bravado, too. Final Four has its Cinderella and we have a Bluegrass State celebration.
    The Final Four as marketplace?

    Notes scribbled during CBS television’s paid programming marathon, could make a Tolstoy tome.
    Strip away the mind-numbing stops, and we can still recognize the Big Dance.
    1. Televised basketball’s timeout rule: one at the first dead ball after four minute intervals beyond 16 minutes, then the 12-minute mark, then eight- and four-minute marks each half.
