I would like to thank the geniuses at CBS Sports, for showing us the opening minutes of the Michigan / Michigan State game, rather than Mizzou's valiant attempt at a comeback in the closing minutes of our game.

I agree. I am in Biloxi, Mississippi this weekend for rest and relaxation (Mardi Gras, ya know), making a point of being in front of a television for the early start of the Missouri\Kansas game.

With 3:30 still on the clock in the second half, the local CBS station here switched to the Arizona\Oregon game. And here, never saw another update of the game, no split screen, not anything.

That is a lot of time left in a basketball game. Thank you, CBS.

Channel 13's sports guy said it was sunspots and satellite issues. I know 13 went out a few times during the game, but we also get 7 out of Quincy, and it was fine, as far as I could tell. Both channels went to the Michigan/MSU game about the same time, though.

Did they say they switched to the other games due to tech difficulties, and I missed the announcement? If so, I apologize for my hasty and ill-informed criticism.

Tony, Yves-At least, they didn't give you Heidi, as in 93 Jets-Oakland.

guys, it takes an old man awhile,but I recall the 2006 football Sun Bowl, MO v OR State. We always headed south on 29th, date of that game,so we "lit out" as fast as we could for Huntsville AL,(always tried to get to Montgomery or at least Birmingham),but registered in Huntsv'le motel with about 8 minutes left in 2nd qtr. Were just getting into it when Katie Couric interrupted the game to show us the body of Gerald Ford being transferred to the Capital. Think you have problems? Someone always has been treated worse.

Are you certain you have the correct year for the infamous Raiders-Jets broadcast fiasco? I remember the game, but the year doesn't seem correct.

WOI AM radio is one of the oldest radio stations in the United States and is operated by Iowa State University: it is federally licensed as what is called a "dawn-to-dusk" operator, meaning that it can only operate during those hours.

When University of Colorado joined existing teams (including Missouri) to form the Big Seven (Okie State then joined to make it the Big Eight), for the fist time football games were played in the Mountain Time Zone.

Iowa State's football teams at the time were so bad that no commercial radio station in Iowa would broadcast the games. WOI picked up the broadcasts, using a commentator who normally played classical music and conducted radio book reviews!

In the fourth quarter of one football game at Boulder, Colorado the Cyclones were marching down the field in what appeared might result in a winning touchdown a voice came on the air saying that under federal broadcast rules it was now dusk in Ames, Iowa and the station was closing its broadcast day - and it did! Listeners were treated to the National Anthem and then dead silence! WOI's switchboard was flooded with angry calls.

Right, Ellis, I looked it up and still got wrong date. It was 11/17/ "sixty eight". Omitting age, I can't imagine how that happened.

I was certain it had to be when Oakland, the Jets and Kansas City were the hot teams in the AFL, and in fact all three of those teams won Super Bowls in that era. KC won the 1970 Super Bowl. Amazing that Al Davis is still around.

The older we get, Frank, the more there is to remember, so we can be excused if we get a few dates wrong. :)

Hey, Ellis, I like that excuse! Much better than "my memory is good, but it is short."
