It could be the worst nightmare for Longhorn fans who don't have access to the still-fledging (and mostly unseen) Longhorn Network -- more than two games televised on the network for the 2012 season.
On Friday, athletic director DeLoss Dodds said that could be the case:
DeLoss Dodds says there could be as many as three Texas football games broadcast on the Longhorn Network this fall.— Mike Finger (@mikefinger) May 11, 2012
LHN isn't going to get carriers without leverage. A third football game is the best leverage ESPN has. Softball ain't gonna do it.— Mike Finger (@mikefinger) May 11, 2012
Dodds said he realizes there will be mass outrage if LHN doesn't have carriers in time for those 3 games. "But the pain is worth the gain."— Mike Finger (@mikefinger) May 11, 2012
There are probably a number of Texas fans who would disagree with that statement.
Cue the outrage.
