Michigan dug itself a major hole against Colorado State but has stormed back to regain control in the NCAA Tournament's first game. CBS/Turner's Ian Eagle is predictably rising to the moment and matching the excitement before some West Coast viewers have even had their breakfast. He reached deep into his bag of sports and pop culture and pulled out a classic Saturday Night Live sketch with Christopher Walken after Wolverines big man Hunter Dickinson got hoop and harm.

That's Bruce Dickinson Eagle is referencing. A man who put his pants on the same way as everyone else — the only difference being he created gold records once his were on. A deep pull to thrill the masses right out of the gate. Off to a great start.
