Twitter: Final Four 'Teamcasts' leave fans confused

Evidently, a lot of people did not get the memo that the Final Four was trying an experiment that included three telecasts of each Final Four game. There was the national crew on TBS and “Teamcasts” on TNT and truTV that were geared toward the teams’ fanbases. The confusion led to some really entertaining tweets; it even had Charles Barkley saying, “Some of you people are idiots,” at halftime. Watch Barkley.

The way uniforms change nowadays, nothing is out of the question. Like, could adidas one day outfit the Michigan football team in an all-maize uniform? Possibly, although the school and company have not announced any such plans. For what it’s worth, Devin Gardner and the rest of the quarterbacks were in all-maize for Saturday’s annual spring game. [ MORE: Watch all of our Michigan spring game highlights, interviews ] This is not exactly news, but it is interesting, especially considering the maize tops featured the “B1G” patch and nameplates.
