    Introducing: 68 Shining Moments, a new series from the Field of 68 Media Network

    We at the Field of 68 media network are thrilled to announce the launch of a new series called 68 Shining Moments. We’ve spent the last four months amassing interviews with the people that lived the greatest, the most memorable moments in the history of the NCAA tournament. We went straight to the horse’s mouth to find out when T.J. Sorrentine realized that he had hit that shot from the parking lot, and if Ali Farohkmanesh was really serious with that shot. We talked to Kyle Guy and Ty Jerome from Virginia. We sat with Danny Manning, and Kris Jenkins, and Ryan Arcidiacono, and Keith Smart, and Dunk City. If there was a memorable moment in the NCAA tournament, chances are, we talked to them.

Cow Bell

I love the view from behind the curtain. My only complaint, not enough cow bell. Keep on keeping it real. Much love from Hawai’i!!!

Great stories (with minor constructive criticism)

I absolutely love listening to the stories that Shammond and his guests share about Carolina basketball. It’s great to hear firsthand about the moments and relationships that shaped each player and team. Loved hearing Charlie Scott talk about his experience, Brendan Haywood’s relationship with Makhtar Ndiaye, and Rasheed Wallace’s misadventures during the trip to Maui, to name a few. Only suggestion would be for Shammond to use a better quality microphone. Sometimes his audio sounds like he’s speaking from across the room. Great show overall, though!
