College Basketball Anchor So Excited, He Falls Off His Stool on Live TV

"They're ready to roc---"

You can tell March Madness is not too far away.

Before Xavier's close 86-83 overtime win against Dayton Saturday amped CBS Sports announcer James Bates took a tumble he soon will not forget as it occurred mid-sentence during the broadcast's live pre-game show.

Yahoo! Sports notes that the fall may not have had too much of an effect on Bates for he's been knocked down before, especially during his days as an all-SEC linebacker at Florida and a captain of the Gators' 1996 national championship team.
