KU-MU Basketball Game Ends in "Sunspots"


Thank goodness that crucial Border War game was on too early for me- 11 a.m..


Because it's widely reported that the CBS television network that was carrying the KU-MU basketball game dropped about the last 3 minutes of the game locally and across most of Missouri.


According to a story in the LAWRENCE JOURNAL-WORLD- Kansas City CBS affiliate KCTV-5 blames the dropped signal on "sunspots."

Next in the Excuse files: Little Green Men.

A likely story...

I was listening on the radio anyway. I was listening to the KU announcers--it's fun to hear them complain.

However, it does seem as if the game was poorly regulated by the officials.

T.O.

Heh- ole Bob Davis...

I too listen to the radio side while the TV game is muted.

There's a little delay in the radio vs. TV game (audio v. vid)- but it's worth it.

Yes- there's been some- eh- inconsistant game calling on the part of the officials- but what else is new... :)

Peace to U- T.O.
