FINAL COUNTDOWN: CBS announcer Jim Nantz last week said that he "will let partner Clark Kellogg call the game's final seconds if Kellogg's alma mater," Ohio State, "claims the national title on April 4 in Houston." Kellogg "played for Ohio State and was the Buckeyes' Most Valuable Player in his final season in 1982." Nantz said, "It just dawned on me. If his alma mater is on the way to winning the championship and the guard is out at midcourt dribbling, waiting to hoist the ball up in the air and suddenly a celebration unfolds on the court, I'm going to step aside and say, 'Clark, take us to zero'" (AKRON BEACON JOURNAL, 3/13).
