Rolleyes Mac Engal: They feared the LHN, but for the wrong reasons

With DeLoss Dodds and friends running the Big 12, the LHN was formed and the conference came apart. All of the bigger rivals fled, thus creating a more powerful version of The Mountain West.

Tom Osborn took Nebraska to the Big Ten, where the Cornhuskers have become irrelevant. Colorado went to the Pac-12, where its status there is similar to that of the Big 12.

Texas A&M and Missouri went to the SEC and, while both initially enjoyed some success in football, each school has struggled to move up the relevancy chain in that long-established Southeastern league.

The net effect of the Longhorn Network was nearly catastrophic on a league and its future, but negligible on the standings.

The LHN was an ambitious, yet poor, business decision, because, well .. it always was. One school is not enough, not even one as big as Texas.[i]

Quote:How UT has managed to blow the advantage as the only Division I university with its own 24-hour TV channel dedicated to its own athletic department is one of the most impressive feats in college athletics.
