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.

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.

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.
