    I have learned that all CBS DTV stations have network authorization to air the HDTV games, instead of the regularly scheduled games. A call to your local station tomorrow morning might be a good idea.

    From the CBS press release:

    In addition to the Final Four Championship game, HDTV coverage will be expanded to include first round games at MCI Center in Washington, D.C., on Friday, March 15 (four games) and Sunday, March 17 (two games) and regional action in Lexington, Ky., on Thursday, March 21 (two games) and Saturday, March 23 (one game). The first eight games will be regionalized broadcasts, while the Regional final, National Semi-final games and National Championship will be national games.

    Scott, you can watch my beloved UCLA Bruins lose (and play) ugly in beautiful High Definition! [​IMG]

    I'll miss your Bruins, Carlo. We are getting the Maryland - Siena game in HD here in Detroit.
    At least UCLA made the tourney. My Wolverines couldn't even get an invite to the Nobody's Interested Tournament. [​IMG]

    FYI, this week the HD cameras are headed to the South region in Lexington, KY. The Duke - Indiana and Pitt - Kent State games will be in HD on Thursday, with the regional final in HD on Saturday.
