Some of your points are valid but LHN is pretty much only good locally (as much as the others are) and for about 10 hours a year.

At least half of Texans hate anything to do with the shorthorns. Take Texas A&M they were so disgusted by it they left the conference for better or worse.
I think it was a great move pulling potential recruits they would of never had a chance to get. Guys and gals that want to compete in a much better conference the SEC can now stay near home.

The University of Texas System board met this week and was supposed to address the issue, but it was put off. UT president Bill Powers said that it wouldn’t make sense to discuss it while negotiations with ESPN were underway.
Negotiations? I thought they just closed this deal a year ago?

In what may be the beginning of SOME kind of movement on LHN, it was reported this weekend that the UT Regents are in "negotiations" with ESPN.
Here's the link to the whole story from Jack Hambrick at The Digital Texan ....the operative part is buried way down low.
And in a somewhat related issue, The University has shown that it is ready to spend big bucks on broadcasting. It already runs two FM stations, one a student training ground, but the other is one of the highest-ranked stations in the market. Well, UT just purchased a commercial FM station for about six million, with the intent of turning it into a second NPR outlet.
At least that ESPN money is being put to good use!
