CBS just keeps out performing the competition. Check out this thread that covers the CBS announcement for the Young & the Restless in HD. The last sentence states CBS will do HD College football this fall. CBS rocks!!! http://www.tvinsite.com/broadcastingcable/index.asp?layout=story& articleid=&doc_id=28127&display=breakingNews Vince [This message has been edited by VCROCCA (edited 05-30-2001).]
