CBS Network Switches Away From U. K. v. Arkansas

LEXINGTON, KY - With 47 seconds left in the game between U. K. and Arkansas the Network switched away from the game and then switched back after 17 seconds.

The final score was 63-58. U.K. WON! WKYT-TV called CBS immediately after the mistake was made and had it switched back.

CBS is trying to find out where the error was made.

CBS New York's phone number is 1-212-975-3247. Hundreds of outraged fans have called and scores have e-mailed WKYT-TV and have been referred to the network number to register their complaints.

    Saxymomma, If god ended the world under your scenario, I would be going to Hell for all the cussing directed at him, and be happy about that decision for eternity. I think YOU need to check your priorities!

    It was a mistake. What in the world did people do before there was tv? I'm just as big of a Cats fan as anybody, but it wasn't worth this much of an uproar! I just simply turned on my radio and listened until it came back on! Trust me, it left no marks and I didn't have to go to the ER or anything! Believe it or not, I actually lived through it!!!! There are more important things in life to get upset over! I hope Billy G.and our boys have a great rest of the year. They most DEFINATELY deserve it! Go Big Blue!

    Some are saying it's just a game, well to some it maybe, but to Big Blue Fans, it's what we do, we love our CATS! If you live in Kentucky, it is a part of our lives! Rock on Big Blue! Don't hate what you don't feel.

    I remember years ago when the TV network went to a commercial just as the Pikeville High School band came down the parade route during the Orange Bowl Parade. The students had stood out in bad weather, selling items to raise money for the trip. The network sent a letter of apology and a film , showing the band's performance. But as for me....I boycotted Lipton Tea( the sponsor) for three years !

    Simple: A Duke fan at CBS threw the switch just to throw sand in our eyes!
