The things people *cough* Aggies and Huskers *cough* say about the LHN


the following is a conversation i recently had on Facebook with a Nebraska fan and a Aggie fan.

Nebraska fan: ESPN paid too much on the surface — $300 million for 20 years — to save the Big 12 (which is what it did) and now we know why: The Longhorn Network intends to make coin off of the state’s high school football prowess at the expense of other teams in the state of Texas.

Me: why shouldnt Texas make money off High School football? the University of Texas OWNS the UIL literally they own it.

Aggie fan: because it's an unfair advantage and it will make everyone that isn't a longhorn fan in the state of Texas hate you. (Note: because they loved us so much BEFORE the Network was announced)

Nebraska fan:  You simply CANNOT make money off high school athletes. Do you know anything about the NCAA rules? The LHN is comparable to asking what happens when a Longhorn steer gets in a China shop. There’s no telling what it will destroy.

Aggie fan: Most Horn fans are just people who live vicariously through one schools RECENT success. (Note: oh here we go with this again...) What happens when UT stops winning? Will ESPN shove UT down our throats regardless? Just to protect their investment? Doesn't the UT deal create a non need based demand for UT athletics? Doesn't that run contrary to american values like free enterprise and competition?

these people make me laugh. shall i just point out my biggest question here?.....why doesnt A&M try to get their own Network?
