Where are located? I am in Michigan. So if the only other game the same time is florida, I assume that I will get the KU game.

Why the hell is our game not nationally televised? Man CBS has some major issues with their love for the SEC

MICHHAWK, pretty sure you will get the game. If I am getting the game, I can't imagine you'd be seeing the Florida game....but I've been wrong before.

Why would the KU-mu game be shown down south if there is an SEC game at the same time? Do you think the folks south of the Mason Dixon line care about the Big 12.

The KU-Texas game (March 7, CBS) is a national broadcast. I'm thinking CBS looked at both games at the start of the year and thought that KU-MU wouldn't have as big of an impact on the conference standings as KU-Texas.
Many of us would have said the same thing.

Gutter, I was just too lazy to check with CBS since espn.com is regularly accessed on my computer.

And, well, I'm used to regularly being screwed by CBS. If it says CBS, I plan to watch it at a bar.

Here in Southern Indiana, CBS is carrying Tenn-Florida. You gotta be kidding me. If this game isn't somehow on DTV, I will blow a f***ing gasket.

I would agree that the Florida game is more important than the KU game in Florida. My problem is with CBS. The other networks end up giving a feed on high interest sports to either an affilated channel or pay per view. CBS just hogs the whole thing, with no alternative feeds. I have watched a lot of KU games on Versus, FSN, or other comcast channel when local interest games bump us off the primary network. CBS never does that.

I have never seen KU on Versus. The only time I have seen KU on Fox is when they play a Pac-10 team.

Directv has the CBS alternate feeds if you subscribe to the upgraded sports package.

That's because CBS DOES have an alternate feed up... It's own.

CBS affiliates ALWAYS have more than one IRD receiver. Most always they are configured in a "Net A" and "Net B" arrangement - Net A being the local game and Net B being the "other" regional game. If there are more than 2 games going on, each receiver can be tuned to alternate backup feeds as well. It is under the discretion of the General Manager of the affiliate to choose which game he carries.

A lot of the time this depends on whether or not the sales and traffic department has sold spots in the game that are specific to a local game. If no spots were sold to be specifically aired in that game, a GM is more likely to be receptive to switching over or back and forth.

The Master Controller can monitor his BAS (broadcast alert system) and get a warning when CBS is going to switch over to the other game. If he is paying attention, he can simply switch to the opposite Net and avoid switching over entirely. This is what I would routinely do when I was at the station (whether or not the GM wanted to... what he didn't know wouldn't hurt him).

You could give them a call and see what they say.

After online research and visiting local sports bars I found the game on Direct TV Channel 728. That is CBSW. Lotok for a sports bar with that channel.

Just a thought, but for those of you watching at home/online and outside of KS, Sunday might be a good day to try and get in on the online RADIO feeds so that you can hear the halftime festivities live.

Whew! I didn't even realize that Sunday's games was on c-BS until I saw this thread. Fortunately, as worthless as c-BS is, they are televising the KU game here on Sunday.
