Athens, GA (Mar 15, 2008) - With the tornado that hit Atlanta last night causing havoc on the SEC Men's Basketball Tournament. RAYCOM and CBS Sports are being forced into creating a response plan that could not be anticipated, as the games are being moved from the Georgia Dome to Georgia Tech. Tim Brando, on the RAYCOM broadcast today, says that having to play two games in one day, as the winner of the Georgia-Kentucky game will have to do, has NEVER happened in the modern era of college basketball.
As far as CBS Sports is concerned, a spokesperson told Eye on Sports Media that they are still trying to work out the logistics of:
1. Breaking down the remote production facilities, moving them, and setting up at Tech while three games are being played.
2. Deciding how to split the feed between the SEC Championship Game and the Big Ten Championship among the CBS affiliates.
