ESPN Deportes To Carry Longhorn Games

For the first time in the state of Texas, Longhorn football games will be broadcast in Spanish. The UT Athletics site reports that 1260 AM ESPN Deportes will carry the games.

People sometimes ask me, "Why don't you try to get Mack Brown in for an interview?"

I laugh politely because there exists no reason for Mack Brown to bother talking to me, or anyone else, other than in the controlled environment which the SID office creates. Seriously, why would they? The fan base is growing, if anything - there's no need to market the program by reaching out into uncontrolled environments.

In any case, I'm pleased to see the Athletics Department catering to Latino fans - the more Longhorn fans in the world, the merrier.
