    Big XII network

    Won't be off the ground this year (duh) but OU can not find a means distribution. OU AD said OU is seriously looking at the idea now while continuing to look for distributors

    Re: Big XII network

    A 9 team network would be appealing. Part of me thinks Texas could make more and with a wider distribution if they would join with the rest of us.

    With A&M on board we could probably land the distribution in all of Texoma between the Big 12 south 5 (no ut). Texas may not be a hindrance to the visibility of the network, although it would certainly discount the carry fee.

    What are you former South members thinking of the recent A&M article?

    You might think so, but that contract they got was absolutely enormous, iirc.

    The possible $100,000,000 donor sure has the A&M Football forum going SEC crazy.

    This has been a very interesting indicator, and may suggest that there might only be a few schools that will command a standalone TV network, unless they settle for only very limited regional distribution. Perhaps Notre Dame, tOSU, maybe an SEC team or two...

    Good for those schools. In the meantime, I really hope nine remaining Big 12 schools get the network done. Eight would be fine too if TAMU thinks they need to be on their own...

    Sites trolling for subscriptions. Liucci (Texags) even went on Austin radio saying nothing was imminent but the network is causing butthurt all over the league. JMO but its nothing bc I don't see:
    a- the SEC actually wanting expansion (they can redo their contract w/o it)
    b- The SEC pulling in Clemson which brings in no TV sets and is a speck on the map between USCe and UGA. TV footprint will matter and that is just implausible.

    I think outside of A&M and OU there isn't much butthurt about the LHN, at least not amongst administrators.

    Your fellow Oklahoma fans seem not to like it Boomer. I understand their feeling being one of the top dogs though. This would be good on how you described it on your site. (Your usaosooner right?)

    I still don't believe the A&M-SEC deal.

    The 9-team network would be fantastic. Let's get it done!

    We need a Nebraska fan to come respond to this post. At least to let us know that we're supposed to hate it.

    Missouri is exploring the possibility of doing everything online. Of course, they also have this luxury resource -- one that ISU used to have:

    KOMU-TV8 is the only university-owned commercial television station in the United States utilizing its newsroom as a working lab for students. Recognized throughout the broadcast industry as the premiere training ground for television journalists, KOMU-TV8's newsroom creates a real-life lab experience for students attending The University of Missouri prestigious School of Journalism.

    I look at it like this

    Yes im usaosooner

    OU isn't going to get a ESPN reach around because our state is so low in population. Why not create something then that would likely strengthen the conference somewhat, and lessen the risk for OU

    The only thing im truely ****** about now is the Texas network showing HS games...
