    I know that last year there was a college game every week that was broadcast in HDTV but I didn't have my HDTV receiver yet. What about this year? I haven't heard anything about HDTV football for this season, pro or college. All of the major sports should be getting broadcast in HDTV by now. It's amazing how long it's taking the networks to do this.

    CBS is showing some of its SEC college games in HDTV this year, including:

    "CBS Sports kicks off its 2002 College Football schedule with a classic intrastate rivalry as defending National Champion Miami takes on Florida on Saturday, Sept. 7 (5:00-8:30 p.m., ET) from Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville, Fla. "

    It's been rumored and unofficially confirmed by some high ranking ABC guys that the Super Bowl will be in HD. Hopefully we will find out soon.

    I just sent an email to my sis-in-law who works at ABC in L.A. If I find anything out I will let you know. Lets keep our fingers crossed.

    It's about time they show the SB in HD! If they do, the SB party will definitely be at my house this year. [​IMG]
