I remember last year how the tourney coverage jumped around to a lot of games during the course of one game, which was nice b/c Michigan wasn't in it and I did not care very much about any single game in particular.
Yesterday I was impressed that CBS stuck w/ the games it said it was going to during the day so I was able to see all of the LSU vs. Butler game and Purdue vs. NI game while only cutting away at halftime and for brief updates of the other games. I was encouraged for viewing the Michigan game at 7 but they cut away for two significant portions of the second half. Once somewhat understandably when Michigan was up 16 and Villanova was down about 10 trying to battle back but the second time it cut away was when the game was around a 10 point game and it was evident that Clemson wasn't done, Nova was getting control of the game and their game had more time left. I had to resort to watching it on the computer which was noticeably behind the ticker on the TV screen.
I checked w/ family in friends both in Michigan and in the Carolinas who said that they never cut away from the game. I would think Toledo is still a big enough market for Michigan viewers to stick w/ the game. I do not know how many regions there are and how they separate their coverage. I can imagine it is confusing for Greg Gumble giving lead ins for all different games in all different regions as we are all seeing something different. I couldn't help but think of this as an annoying Buckeye state ploy against the Wolverines.
Sorry maybe a pointless post out of frustration but it was a great game and I was happy to see most of it. Go Blue!!
