The idiocy of this was discussed in the "M8B SPEAKS OUT ON MARCH MADNESS" thread. as the last post of that thread cogently pointed out, the irony of all this is that the people that would want to watch an entire game of local interest that turns into a blowout will have to sit through the whole game in SD once the rest of country flexes away from it (and they're left with only the SD constant feed.)
This is all CBS's fault, not D*'s, and apparently has to do with their central control system in NY not being up to the task just yet. However, at least we get PARTS of all games in HD this year as opposed to half of the early round games in HD last year. On the other hand, at least the constant feeds last year were, in my recollection, constantly in HD - so less frustration and annoyance!
