Just over a year ago, ESPN lost out on the rights to broadcast the NCAA college basketball tournament after CBS and Turner Sports teamed up with $10.8 billion to secure the big dance for the next 14 years. It was a bit of a snub to the Worldwide Leader, which ultimately couldn't match the bill. A snub like the selection committee leaving Colorado, Alabama, Virginia Tech, St. Mary's, Boston College, Harvard โ€” and whomever else you think deserved a bid โ€” out of this year's 68-team field. Snubs abound.
