Sunday, NBC showed what [Bob Costas] would look like with [Pat Riley]'s hairdo, and vice versa. Costas had a lot more to lose than Riley.
[Mike Fratello] got in a nice dig at Dean Smith during a two-way hookup with the North Carolina coach. "Word is you were the only person to hold [Michael Jordan] under 20 points," Fratello told Smith, referring to Jordan's college scoring average.
KMPC has finally named a new football and basketball play-by-play announcer. John Rebenstorf, UCLA's radio commentator on football last season and the early favorite, ended up getting the job. Another candidate, Dan Rowe of Tulsa, eliminated himself by taking a job with the Minnesota Vikings. KMPC has yet to name a football commentator to work with Rebenstorf, although former Ram Jack Snow is the front-runner. Rebenstorf will work basketball alone. KMPC has dropped Ann Meyers.
