TALKING HEADS THAT STOP MAKING SENSE: In N.Y., Bob Raissman asks, "Anyone else officially sick of Charles Barkley?" It is "enough already." But this is "not all Sir Charles' fault." CBS and Turner are "shoving Barkley down our collective throats," and have left him "overexposed." Barkley has been "uneven, inconsistent and repetitive" (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 3/26). SI.com's Richard Deitsch writes the production on Sunday for Florida Gulf Coast's win over San Diego State on TBS "was terrific," but what "wasn't great was analyst Reggie Miller talking incessantly throughout the entire game." The three-person booth in basketball "is cluttered enough without a filibuster from one of the announcers." Miller needs to "significantly ease off the gas pedal for the round of 16 games" (SI.com, 3/26).
