Athens, GA (Feb 13, 2009) - Gathered in Indianapolis, a select group of media representatives, conference representatives, and others are gathered. Their purpose? To sit through and participate in a mock selection session for the 2009 NCAA Men's Division I basketball tournament.
Participating in the current mock selection session are the following individuals:
Greg Anthony, CBS Sports
Rob Carolla, Big 12
Dan Dakich, 1070 The Fan
Dave Furst, WRTV
Dave Hirsch, Pac-10
Jeremiah Johnson, Fox 59

Interestingly, there are no print reporters on this list. It is not known if they participated in an earlier session or not. What is clear, is that there is not a large mainstream media representation in the above pool.
You can follow a live blog of this mock selection session over on NCAA.com. Unfortunately, they do not offer a RSS feed or a Twitter feed for this blog. More on that later.
