    Yeah...about that "Big 12 Network"...

    According to Boren, Castiglione, and Pickens, it still sounds VERY doubtful.

    Seriously...can this conference say or do ANYTHING they don't contradict 48 hours later?! I don't envy Chuck Neinas right now.

    Wouldn't "this" imply being part of something?

    Re: Yeah...about that "Big 12 Network"...

    It's pretty simple. It would not include UT and OU home games, which it probably wouldn't anyway since they never seem to have issues getting their games on tier 1 or 2. If the other conference members want to start a network, I don't see why they couldn't. The only tricky part may be the name of the network if the entire conference weren't a part of it, or whether the league operates it themselves.

    Perhaps these 8 members could get a deal with FSN to run the network under their umbrella to solve this.

    How is that SEC thing going for you? Still hanging out at the bus stop with your pal Aggie?

    I don't think it's simple at all. Why would the remaining 8 schools (or 9 or 10...who knows at this point?) want to sink all the costs of developing a network when they could get paid by simply selling the rights to some of their Tier 3 content to the LHN? Or the Sooner Network?

    Do we know if TTU, Baylor or OKSt. are even INTERESTED in joining a Big 12 Network? If Pickens is skeptical, you can count OKSt. out.

    The most likely outcome is that they continue to "study" the Big 12 Network, just like they have for the past 4 years - while the schools (like KU has done this year) get paid by the LHN to carry their non-televised games. Eventually, the LHN and the Sooner Network will be the "de-facto" Big 12 Network...owned and operated by UT and OU.
