How to squander a huge advantage

    Pitt-Louisville, OT, Cardinals get a slam with less than a second left to go up five ... cheerleader grabs ball and tosses it up in celebration.

    What's that? You want to see the video? With the aftermath and everything?

    Let's check CBSSports.com. CBS broadcast the game, so they surely should have great video, right?

    Here's the game report with nearly two minutes of highlights ... ending abruptly after the slam.

    Here's the weekend roundup, which links to ... a YouTube video that ends at pretty much the same place.

    That's it? That's all you're doing with something that ought to be one of the biggest viral videos of the week?
  2. I'm confused as to why this should be a viral video.

    Me too. It was part of every highlights package I saw.

    And yet I couldn't find it on CBSSports.com, which should've had a field day with it.

    What kind of advantage should CBS Sports have? It's a silly moment in a game.

    What was Jim Marshall's nickname? Silly moments are part of sports folklore.

    They had video of something you don't see very often. They didn't use it, at least not a clear view of it.

    A moment that, in the end, didn't matter.

    Don't see what the big deal is, really.
