Agree 100%.

also, Gap...you're right, I misspoke. Ratings for this year's tournament are obviously not in. I was speaking to the general ratings of the station. I'm not sure if anyone is using this year's rates and expecting next year's to be more. Any broadcaster who does surely hasn't been paying attention to the industry in a couple of years. This point did make me curious, though, so I did reach out to some friends of mine in different markets to see how things are going there.

I'm not sure if the "omnipotent" jab was supposed to be degrading or what. I'm trying to offer some insight and reasoning behind KTVT's decision in hopes of giving the fans in Dallas something to fight with other than blind rage/outrage. Please accept my apologies if I offended you.

It's pretty ridiculous. How many Aggies in DFW?

OU or t.u. would be broadcast everywhere....I get to go to a ****ing sports bar in Wichita Falls because Time Warner doesn't even offer CBS College Sports...bull****.

I can't boycott CBS Sports, they have the NFL and college football in the fall.

But I can damn sure not watch their local news broadcast anymore. So I won't. And that's a shame too, cause Karen Borta is hot.

Just get DirecTV with the sports pkg. Problem solved for all.

I have U-verse, so I'll have to go to a sports bar to see the game.


My UVerse channel listing added CBS College Sports a few weeks back as part of their Sports Package (which costs $10 a month). It's something like 1642 or 1643 in HD.

Actually, that doesn't solve the problem at all. The problem isn't access to the game- anyone who really wants to watch it will be able to find somewhere. The problem is the total lack of repsect being shown A&M and its supporters by local TV stations. If we don't make noise about BS like this, we will alsways be treated like the red-headed stepchild of Texas college sports.

I know U-verse carries the package, but I'd have to upgrade. I may look into upgrading for all of six hours.

Ch. 11 reminds us that the Utah State vs. Texas A&M will air on CBS College Sports at 3:45 p.m. and ALL games are streamed live online at www.cbssports.com.


What a bunch of d-bags....

"hey, you can always catch the game on your computer."

To those who scoff at the notion there is some anti-Aggie bias out there, this is a prime example.

It's still showing up as the local and national news for me.

This is pathetic. I won't be watching local CBS in the future, and I'll be encouraging other Aggies not to do so as well.

Bill Byrne needs to do something here, this is not acceptable. It's time to earn that big raise you gave yourself, $Bill.

I guess CBS has little control over their local affiliates, but they hype the fact that March Madness is on their network like the Second Coming and then a local station decides they're going to skip the game so they can show local news, which largely consists of weather and interviews with people *****ing about long lines at the DMV. Perfect.

They can't show Baylor. Dallas is UNT's home television market.

But, but, Aston94 knows all and he said it would be on CBS when I posted this topic on Sunday after the selections.

Aston94, what happened man, I thought I didn't know what I was talking about. Jacka**.

They'll probably end up doing a story on how pissed off Aggies are that the game isn't being televised....

just chimed in with my 2 cents. Basically told old Ken that he needed to pull his head out of his ass, or I'd do my part to make sure that the DFW Aggies knew just what CBS thinks of our school and that I could guarantee my family wouldn't be watching his station any more.

The funny thing is that we wouldn't miss out on anything anyway.

emailed ken as well as the sportsradio 1310 guys to hopefully stir this up a bit.

Go back and look at what I said, moron. I said the game would be on tv in Texas.

From what I have read on this thread it appears the game will be on TWO channels in the D/FW market: CBSCS and local channel 21.

As said before, CBS College Sports *should* be in free preview mode right now. So even if you don't think you get it, you should try and see if you do right now.
