The loonies is College Station are (not surprisingly) urging their fellow overall wearers to boycott LHN, as well as fans from any other school in the Big 12 (Big 12-2, now Big 12-3 + 1-3? I don't like math).
So the question is... what are YOU doing besides ranting via comments on various online sites, heated discussions at the water cooler, or bugging anyone you know with Verizon in the Dallas area? Here is what I know: people can ignore emails, postings, etc., but they have a hard time ignoring you if you actually call and talk to them. Bugging the absolute hell of the cable companies until something happens is the only way to get the ball rolling. So you say you've called? Call again. And again. They'll eventually get the point. Here are all the numbers in one place:
In the time that it takes for you to post the colorfully worded and heated comment online, you could have called your cable provider. Let's be efficient Longhorn Nation. Also, as annoying and frustrating as it is (believe me, I know), negotiations ARE taking place; they unfortunately just take more time than we as fans are willing to give them. If you absolutely need to call someone, ANYONE to vent about this, give LHN a call. Or hell, go straight to the source, call ESPN since they are the ones doing the negotiations.
Deals will be made. LHN will be available to more than just a lucky few. And everyone will be singing praises once again.
