Texas Tech May Cancel Game Rather Than Appear on LHN

16

ESPN wants to put Texas Tech's game against Texas State on the Longhorn Network. The WAC, Texas State's new conference, has the rights to the broadcast and has recognized the LHN as a legit ESPN property. Therefore, it is an actual possibility that the game could appear there. Tech wants nothing of this. In fact, the school is thinking about canceling the game altogether, paying the buyout, and only having 11 games on the slate this fall. That's how much TTU wants to avoid appearing on the LHN. I'd say that anyone from A&M's leadership who might stumble across this story will sleep well tonight. (H/T Mark Ennis) UPDATE Chip Brown says ESPN has backed off and won't show the game on the LHN.

From Gene Stallings If it wasn't clear already, Gene Stallings has removed all doubt that Texas A&M's move to the SEC was entirely about the Longhorn Network.

Two Takes on the Longhorn Network Contract

3

Texas A&M blog The Midnight Yell wwas able to get a hold of Texas' Longhorn Network contract with ESPN and IMG College via an open records request. Its analysis of it is linked in the big link above, which includes a link to the entire 50-page contract. It's not a bad take on it, and it certainly lays bare the concerns and fears that A&M fans have regarding the LHN. However, it's also obvious that it was written by someone who does not have experience looking at contracts. A commentary by someone who does know her way around contracts is from Kristi Dosh at her Business of College Sports blog. Read the other post first, but follow it up with this one. Some of the issues mentioned in the first post are merely quirks of how contracts are written these days.
