Oh, and from a contact at KEYE (Austin):

quote:
We put the request in to CBS to air the A and M game starting at 3:45. They’ll let us know tomorrow. It’s looking good.

Bingo.
Cue the mockers who don't think we are disrespected.

"Just win". Right. That's working out well.

OP is not a troll. I started e-mailing Ken yesterday. He gave me a call less than 5 minutes ago and told me the game will not be shown here. Again funnel all complaints to:

Dallas here...

I show it on DirecTV 613, CBSSports.
I do not have the sports pack, but I seem to get that channel at the moment.

Channel 11 (CBS) shows News at that time.

Yep, I've got the DirecTV sports pack and it's definitely on channel 613. Nonetheless, I'll be at a bar with other Ags watching this one!

It's not like Donald Sloan or Derrick Roland are from the Dallas area or anything.

While I too find it ridiculous that the Dallas CBS station isn't showing the game, I think we may be going in the wrong direction by flooding Ken Foote's inbox. What does he care if our game is shown? Won't affect his paycheck. We need to go to the top -- his boss and his boss's boss. Probably even an Aggie somewhere in that mix. Now we just need someone in the know to find out who can make it happen.

What What What!!!!!!!??!!

Jeff Jamison (The Weather Man for Ch.11) is an Aggie. Maybe we should ask him if he needs help overthrowing master control because I know he follows the basketball team too!

That's the only name floating. I sent an e-mail and left a voice message.
Hopefully many others will do the same.
This is crazy.

Not even from Dallas but just pretended to be in my email to Ken. Called my brother who does live there. He is emailing now.

Do your duty texags!

I suggested they move their News to 21, their sister station, and bump the 'My Wife and Kids'.

My AT&T U-Verse in Houston shows Oprah but on CBSCS it shows our game in HD..so I guess if you have CBSCS it'll be in HD..

I think it's just done out of spite. People either love us or hate us.

Randy Galloway said today on his radio show that the DFW Market is required to show the UNT Game.

Foote went to smew for undergrad and t.u. for his mba.....of course he's going to keep A&M off the programming if it's up to him.

Odds of the game being shown on the Dallas CBS affiliate = 100%. CBS pays a lot of money for their affiliates to be able to air these games over the course of total 10 days during the year.

KEYE in Austin now shows it as airing.

quote:
Friday
11:25 a.m.: Minnesota vs. Xavier
1:35 p.m.: Missouri vs. Clemson
3:45 p.m.: Utah State vs. Texas A&M
6:15 p.m.: Georgia Tech vs. Oklahoma State
8:40 p.m.: Houston vs. Maryland


I guaran-damn-tee you that if they are showing it behind the burnt orange curtain, the DFW affiliate will air it too.

CBS assigns games to affiliates. Affiliates can request a game that they were not assigned (as apparently happened in Austin). Maybe contacting CBS and demonstrating demand in D/FW for this game is the way to go?

Has anyone tried contacting Bill Byrne to see if he can help to get the game on in D/FW? Maybe he could at least advise the most potentially effective course of action. I know that he wants the game showing everywhere possible in Texas.
