If I recall correctly (off the top of my head), there were several hundred kilometres of cables involved with the OPERA experiment, and almost none of them were purposely laid for the experiment at hand; checking them all has been ongoing since day one.
This isn't a simple 'are you sure it's plugged in' problem, and it's actually much less embarrassing for them than the public media are making out - most who have followed the experiment closely have been impressed by CERN's sensible and mature approach to this throughout. They put their hands up right at the start and admitted that it could very well be an error: they've been searching for possible errors non-stop since and releasing all of their findings. They've just been incredibly open and honest scientists, which is what the scientific method is all about really.
