Watching the end of the Texas-Kansas game (and waiting for UCLA-Washington) I wonder why CBS doesn't schedule games at 2:15 intervals when it has multiple contests?

With those close to 3:00 commercial breaks, it is getting increasingly rare that a game actually can be finished in the two-hour time allotted.

So in Los Angeles we missed the first 4:37 of the UCLA-Washington game.

TV timeouts in college basketball are 2 minutes each at the under 16, 12 , 8, and 4 minutes marks each half. The first called timeout of the second half by either team is also a TV timeout. Any other commercials taken during other called timeouts are not guaranteed.

TV timeouts during the NCAA tournament are 30 seconds longer at 2:30.

Also, couldn't they arrange an up to 20 minute television hold on the tip-off to account for overtimes and such.

With all respect, as one who has attended about three dozen college basketball games a year for many years, I am well aware of the timeouts, (TV variety and ":30-second"). And they have managed to slowly expand, year after year.

I also know that no matter the alleged 2:00 length (or :30 for that matter) none are close to being that short.

Example: at the 4:06 mark of the first half of UCLA-Washington game, UCLA called a 30-second time out. But there was a total of 1:33 from the whistle signalling the timeout to the time the ball was whistled back in play. CBS didn't even go to (a :30) commercial for more than 30 seconds after the whistle.

At 3:37, the total time away from play was 2:50 from whistle to whistle. CBS used the first 21 seconds for bumper material, then three 30-second commercials, a 15-second March Madness promo then a 10-second DirecTV March Madness commercial. Then another 44 seconds until play resumed.

I repeat: it is very difficult to shoe-horn a college basketball game into a two-hour time slot (especially when it begins at :05-:09) given the expanded commercial/promo breaks.

Why throw two teams off their schedule?

Just arrange to start the game in 2:15 intervals and solve the problem.

I guess. Sure, it's "HD," but every game I've watched has been a mess. For all the amazing things CBS does with HD, NCAA Men's BB is mediocre at best. Easily the worst network HD that I watch. It's better than widescreen SD, but certainly no better than DVD quality.

D* feed for the OSU-Michigan game is horrible on the local HD channel. The feed keeps on flickering on and off all game. This has been going on now for pretty much the whole season. Anyone else having issues with there PQ?

I'm getting it in Nashville on Comcast channel 233. It looks like a camera flash keeps happening somewhere in the arena... one large camera flash.

I jealous that you are attending 3 dozen college games a year, but I guess I should be happy that I have been to about 20 each of the past few years.

I think CBS should do something like ESPN does and have the first game start 2 or 3 minutes after the hour and then have the second game start 9 to 12 minutes after the second hour.

I have always thought it was odd that a tv network can fit a 30 second spot in during what according to basketball rules is really a 20 second timeout.

I don't think going to a hard 2:15 window for each game is necessary, but trimming the pre and post game show so you can get in all the games.

I noticed the flicker during the OSU game today as well.

It's a 20-second timeout in the NBA. In college, it is known as a 30-second timeout.

Does this game have the same problem as yesterday with the flickering on HD? I am at work and do not have a chance to check it out.

I'm watching KCBS-DT in LA. No problems with the picture or sound here.
