    games on CBS

    Please dont flame me for this thought im just wondering.
    Does ISU ever get a chance to play on CBS i think games on CBS are great i watched the Northwestern/Illinois game on CBS last weekend and its always a great broadcast. Is it just a big 12 contract thing that we never play on there, i dont really know much about the affiliations and what not but i would love to see a ISU/KU matchup get onto CBS

    Re: games on CBS

    Teams with one win at this point in the season don't play on CBS. Be happy if it's on the Cyclone Network or whatever they call that.

    They have played on CBS in the past, but you basically have to be a top 25 team to play on CBS.

    Doesn't CBS Have a contract with the Big 10 and SEC?

    Re: games on CBS

    The only way we will play on CBS is if we make the NCAA tourney or get really good and have a big matchup against another good team.

    The last ISU game I recall Gus Johnson calling was Hampton. Too many painful memories there.

    Wasn't that '05 upset at KU on CBS?

    It seems like it was ... and that would be the last one I recall seeing on CBS.

    I think that was ABC...think.

    The only regular season game I remember for certain off the top of my head that was on CBS was the 97 home game with KU. They were #1 and we were top 20. Willoughby hit 9 3's in the game and something like 7 in the first half.

    This is why I'd like to stay away from CBS (unless of course we're talking about NCAA tourney coverage), Johnson is awful IMO. He seems like he's trying to amplify every play, it just seems fake and rehearsed to me. But I guess that doesn't make him any different than any other play by play guy.

    Watch out, you're going to have the Gus Johnson Fan Club members on this board ready to hunt you down and pound you. I don't love him or hate him but the man-crush love some have for him makes me uncomfortable.

    I know this is the case for the SEC. The Big 12 is ABC/ESPN, which is why almost all of the conference games were at least on ESPN3. I believe the last time ISU was on CBS was when we played UNC in the NCAA tournament.

    Forget CBS, I can't wait until we're playing in the NCAA tournament on TruTV!
