Local Elite Eight Coverage

Just a few random thoughts about local coverage of the Illini's run to the Final Four.

Great line from Pegs last night connecting the comeback to Easter. Nice to see the live coverage.

Didn't see it, but Shannon loved Mattson's package following the Illini back from Chicago to Champaign tonight.

Props to Lee for noticing Weber alone during the celebration, doing a look live and being forceful enough to get the second question after everyone started to pile in.

Also (and this was something I took pride in doing when I was reporting) I noticed he was holding a mic for WAND out of Decatur. I know there are some viewers who think competition between stations is rough, but for the most part, everyone tries to help each other out... especially when it isn't some kind of exclusive.
