CBS Offered Up Its Unique Take on the Doug McDermott Sports Illustrated Cover

Doug McDermott, the Creighton star and 2014 Wooden Award favorite, appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated this week. The cover was a straight homage to the magazine’s classic 1977 issue featuring Larry Bird during his Indiana State days flanked by a pair of cheerleaders.

Sunday, before the Atlantic 10 Tournament final tipped, CBS’s Road to the Final Four offered up its take on the cover, with Clark Kellogg’s head photoshopped into the McDermott/Bird role and Seth Davis and Doug Gottlieb positioned as the cheerleaders.

While it’s solid display of photoshopping by CBS, we could all probably live without the nightmare fuel the re-worked image produced.
