College basketball analyst Doug Gottlieb offered an apology Thursday night after he said he was on a CBS pregame telecast to bring the "white man's perspective" to the show, which featured four African American men on the set. "I don't know why you guys ask me," Gottlieb said of their interest in his opinion of the Marquette-Miami game, "I'm just here to bring diversity to this set, give kind of the white man's perspective. " Host Greg Gumble immediately turned away from the desk while analysts Greg Anthony, Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley shared some nervous laughter as you can see in the video below.

If you're in the public eye, what can you say, and when can you say it? We've had two examples this week of the minefield that is language in 21st century America. First, from the world of politics, there's Rep. Don Young of Alaska, who's found himself in hot water over his use of the term "wetbacks. " As my colleague Michael A. Memoli reported : In an interview with a local radio station Thursday, Alaska Rep. Don Young was discussing how advances in technology have reduced the need for some types of employment and referred to farming his family once did in California.

CBS analyst Doug Gottlieb caused a lot of Internet outrage Thursday night over his comment at the start of that night's NCAA tournament coverage. Gottlieb was on a panel with four African American men, and when he was introduced by host Greg Gumbel, he said, "Cream rising to the crop. I don't know why you guys asked me, I'm just here to bring diversity to the set here. Give the kind of white man's perspective on things from the point guard position. " Whoops. Fellow analyst Greg Anthony made a face after hearing the comment, and Barkley and Kenny Smith laughed awkwardly.

You don't often go to sports-talk radio for moments of exemplary journalism. Actually, you never go there. But there it was last week, during a typical morning drive on a typical Los Angeles freeway, with ESPN's Doug Gottlieb typically holding court. For those of you who quickly move the dial at the sound of sports talk, at the incessant gushing, cackling and sucking up, or the all-too-obvious promotional slop on behalf of teams whose games are on that station, you may have missed Gottlieb, or lumped him with many of the rest.

Oklahoma State vs. Florida in today's East Regional final might not be the most anticipated matchup of this tournament. Try telling that to Oklahoma State point guard Doug Gottlieb, who has been looking forward to this ever since, oh, about midnight Friday night. On his way to the postgame news conference after the Cowboys defeated Seton Hall, he told Coach Eddie Sutton, "I thrive on those presses." Replied Sutton: "You'll get your chance Sunday afternoon."

Doug Gottlieb sat in solitary confinement. The game went on without him. He could not play. He could not watch. He was a bad boy, and the referees told him to sit in the corner for the second half. "I wasn't allowed to leave the locker room," Gottlieb said. "I couldn't even go out and sit with my family and cheer my teammates on. It was the worst feeling in the world." As homecomings go, the Oklahoma State junior guard felt more like a court jester than a king.

There may be no place better to go for a second chance than this small college town. At Oklahoma State, where Doug Gottlieb's passes come sweeping down the lane, basketball has an ancient tradition, going back to--genuflect, please--Hank Iba. Football has its place, but basketball is as imposing as Iba's life-size statue in the Gallagher-Iba Arena lobby. Gottlieb knew the history. He knew of the rabid fans. He knew the Cowboys needed a point guard. Why he is here, though, is not so simple.
