Donovan McNabb & Roosevelt Bouie Highlight Syracuse's Final Four Team Stream Coverage

If you'd rather watch Syracuse play North Carolina while listening to some very pro-Syracuse announcers, tune in to the Syracuse Team Stream on truTV.

TBS is the place to watch the regular broadcast of the 2016 Final Four contest between the Syracuse Orange and North Carolina Tar Heels. But let's say you'd rather know what former Syracuse superstars had to say about the game while watching it...where could you find something like that?

Turns out, truTV.

In addition to TBS’ Final Four game coverage, TNT and truTV will feature Team Stream by Bleacher Report, team-specific presentations tailored to the schools participating in the Final Four National Semifinals, for the third consecutive year, and the National Championship for the first time. The inventive concept will continue to present the game with unprecedented local flavor including comprehensive team and player storylines, music, custom graphics and show packaging, additional cameras and team-centric replays, custom halftimes with school features and more.

The Syracuse Team Stream will feature three Syracuse alums, two of which are probably very familiar to you.

Tom Werme, play-by-play – A graduate of Syracuse, Werme is a 20-year broadcast veteran who has worked for the ACC Network, as well as the ACC Digital Network and Raycom Sports. He also appears on ESPN, Fox Sports South and the Big Ten Network as a play-by-play announcer for a variety of sports, including basketball and football.

Roosevelt Bouie, analyst – A former Syracuse standout from 1976-80, Bouie played for current head coach Jim Boeheim and was a First Team All-Big East selection in 1980. His jersey is retired by Syracuse and he went on to play 12 seasons in Italy.

Donovan McNabb, reporter – McNabb was the 1995 Big East Player of the Year for the Syracuse football program, in addition to being a walk-on with the basketball team for two years, including the 1996 team that went to the National Championship. The six-time NFL Pro Bowl quarterback played 13 seasons for Philadelphia, Washington and Minnesota. He then became a broadcaster for NFL Network and Fox Sports.

I'll be honest, I don't know how much I want to hear Donovan McNabb break down basketball, but I'm intrigued enough to tune in for the Werne & Bouie Show.

Remember, just don't make any jokes about truTV. They will cut you.

Whatcha think? Will you choose this over the main broadcast? Check it out to see if it's good? Or just skip it altogether?
