“It’s just not the right thing to do.”

Oklahoma’s president wants the Big 12 to put the brakes on member schools broadcasting high school games on their networks.

If he’s successful, does that make the Longhorn Network less valuable?

    The Big 12/10 may be headed for divorce court as Texas continues to push the envelope and exploit the weaker sisters who chose to hang onto their coat-tails last year. The point last summer where we almost reached the four 16 team Super Conferences may not be far away again. Oklahoma and Texas A&M are the two who are strong enough to make the move, and it will only take one of them to set the dominoes in motion…..again. When you add major conference realignment to the issues of NCAA rules that do noit satisfactorily cover the needs of both the haves and have-nots, there is a lot of kindling just waiting for a spark. Count me as one fan in favor of a “top 64” set-up.

      Texas A&M, Oklahoma, FSU and Clemson simaltaneously leaving their respective conferences to join the SEC would be the trigger.

        Those names are the ones that get thrown around when the 16 team conference gets discussed, but you have to then worry about balance. What other collection of 16 woulod play anywhere near that difficult a schedule? I doubt OU would end up in the SEC, but things could get strange so who knows?

    Imagine the money these attorneys make that are involved with anything NCAA. Talk about job security

    Alternative programing is already being lined-up:
    – Cooking with Vince Young
    – Longhorn frisbee golf
    – The Keep Austin Weird Hour hosted by Leslie (that’s a wayyyy inside joke…let’s see who gets it)
    – And my personal favorite…a children’s educational show for Saturday mornings during football season, “Learning to Tell Time”. It’s STILL 10 to 9 in Texas!!! Hahahahaha….Go Dawgs!

    Saw an article the other day speculating that Oklahoma and Texas A&M would want to join the SEC should the Longhorn Network be allowed to broadcast high school games.
