    Notice the "contracting" part...I do not have a good feeling about this.

    is that a hint? sounds like idle speculation at a possible Husker meltdown. If they wouldn't fold in the LHN for the Pac I cannot see them doing it for the Big

    If that's the case, they better be backing up a money train to CU's Dal Ward offices and making them come in as exactly the same as everyone else.

    My guess is that UT might have gotten its extra by forcing TTU to take a haircut on its distribution from the LHN/Pac-12 regional network.

    Kind of hoping this isn't true, though.

    Oh, well if a Texass message board says it...

    UT isn't giving up the LHN so they aren't coming to the PAC.

    woudn't it be awesome if basically every decent program suddenly found a home except texass?

    mizzery, ku, atm, ou, and osu all find bcs homes... and then there is texass sitting there, with tech, baylor, kjuco state, and isu. that would be so ****ing perfect. justice would be done. i know it won't happen like that, but it is nice to dream.

    Texas would not be "giving up" the LHN. ESPN owns the LHN. I don't see ESPN "giving up" the LHN. They paid UT for the rights to broadcast the content, but UT does not own or control the entity. They certainly have input into the programming but ESPN paid dearly for the rights and they won't simply allow Texas to get out of it cheaply.

    The Pac-12 owns all their networks directly. The Pac would have to buy out ESPN's contract in order to "roll it in" to their regional network model.

    Why are you citing a post from 10 days ago?

    I have no inside knowledge..... But I can deduce from all that has happened that the following are a near certainty:

    1). Texas and ND can not dictate their own terms to the Big 10. If they could, they would have announced that a long time ago.

    2). Texas can't dictate it's own terms to the PAC, because Larry Scott said so.

    3). Texas thinks they own college football becaue Chip Brown tweeted it.

    The Pac-12 offers top notch academics and quality athletic competition. You all knew this when you joined and honestly, it has been a long time coming Buffs. You always belonged in the PAC. Texas likes to believe they are God’s gift to both. I’ll give them that. They’re not bad in either category but they’re like a repackaged Christmas gift in a birthday bag. However, the PAC is and has always been, all about equal revenue sharing. I am not certain Texas sees this as a positive or strength in the conference. (I’m also not sure Larry Scott wants to entertain the idea of granting them any exclusive privileges with OK and OK Light already on the table). He could have gone for this last year if he loved them so much and wanted the headaches in exchange for the cash. Now, we are in a stronger position with our current television contract and membership. The internal strength and loyalty which exists within this conference is not often advertised nor discussed but it exists nonetheless. Why listen to any Texas expansion to the PAC now? Oh yeah…money and prestige.

    Is Texas is willing to commit to the collectiveness and overall good of the Pac-12? No.

    Do we need the money? No. Although it would be nice….it doesn’t seem worth the hassle.

    Do we all want to deal with the LHN? No.

    Do any of us really give a flying f*ck about Texas? No.

    This could go on ad nauseum….

    As a Cal alumnus, PAC 12 defender and fan of college football in general, UT should only be accepted under equal terms in the existing structure. I think this will be discussed again and again by all within the conference and mandated by the PAC 12. I'm pretty sure the end result will be that Texas refuses these terms, at which point, the rest of our concerns; regional match-up problems, conference alignments, travel, cancer to the system, etc. will fall to the wayside. We’ll figure something out beneficial to any new members. Don’t let the zipper and pod fanatics ruin your week.

    I also believe that in the end, if the O-homas are accepted, we’ll be left with the question: which of the two teams remaining will make up the PAC 16? IF that occurs, that’s another concern for another time and another day but rest assured Buffs, the PAC listens to it members- even if they are new members. We always have and always will. Lastly, we always, always, always share our cash with our brothers.

    Pacific 12 Conference…the Conference of Champions

    Now that is a welcome wagon.... Nice to do business with you. Forgive us if we are conditioned on being skeptical of a conference foe.....
