    Big 12 Uses Last 6-Day Time Window

    The only good news about being on the LHN next week is that we know our game time (11 am), while the rest of the conference has to wait, as the networks have utilized their last 6-day time window for chosing game times. With this being their last 6-day window (I believe the Big 12 contract states that they can only use a maximum of 3), that means that we should know the Kansas kick time by next Monday. Then, for the West Virginia game, we already know the time and network.

    He's talking about why nobody knows what the times are for the games 2 weeks out (the networks used a 6-day selection)

    I understood that, but I still don't understand how the bold is correct. I'm sure it is obvious to everyone else, sorry, I didn't get much sleep.

    Not according to
    Oklahoma Sooners vs. Iowa State Cyclones - Preview - November 03, 2012 - ESPN

    ESPN TV Listings - ESPN

    You would think that ESPN would know since its the same company. Also we are on the LHN next week. I thought there was a rule that Texas could only have one conference game a season.

    I apologize that I said this week when I meant next week for the Texas game. I've corrected it. My mistake.

    They can buy as many as they want (@ $200K/game) as long as both sides agree. Check out the updated bylaws.

    No need to apologize. I was just trying to figure it out. I know I'm tired but I didn't think I was that tired that I was the only one confused.

    I'm all for Long Horn Network if it means we (here in Iowa) get it rebroadcast on ABC! I'm all about free TV...

    Re: Big 12 Uses Last 6-Day Time Window

    I'm just glad all those 6-game windows are used up finally as they really make it hard to plan out futures weekends when they do that. I know our contract isn't the only one that has them as I know at the the Big 10 does too. However, I don't know if they have a comparable maximum amount (3 maximum for Big 12.
