    Again the Big 12 gets "shafted" with TV time...

    I just noticed that both Kansas and Texas A&M play this Thursday night. What stinks is both games are on at virtually the same time. (KU at 6:10 and A&M at 6:27 central)

    No, it's no conspiracy - just how it worked out.

    A damn shame though...

    On the other hand, the Big 12 has a captive audience for that time slot, as the only two games going involve Big 12 teams...

    And both games will hopefully be Big 12 wins!

    It IS a conspiracy! CURSE YOU HAWKEYES! Your media tentacles reach all the way to CBS and the NCAA!

    They'll probably break in during the game with a story about Steve Alford answering his cell phone in a restaurant and the wild speculation about which college that doesn't need him it could be!


    On a side note ISUFan, after your cougar joke I can't help but picture you giggling at the word tentacle too.

    The crappy thing is we'll have the KU game in our area. I'd much rather watch A&M - because I think it will be a better game to see.

    You need to write or call KCCI. We're lucky in the KC area because our CBS affiliate is multi-casting the games. (Shhh. I know. This is KU country.) Here's their schedule:

    KCTV5 PROGRAMMING NOTE - Friday and Saturday NCAA Schedule

    KCTV5's coverage of the NCAA Tournament continues Thursday. Games listed on channel 5.1 will be broadcast in HD, while 5.2 will be standard definition.
    The Kansas game will be in HD this week, thanks to our friends at CBS.
