Apparently we did well last week, no idea as the game wasn't available. Looking forward to seeing the progress this week. ESPN is being stupid with LHN. No one wants to pay for it and now they've lost leverage with providers. Give it way cheaper, then jack up the price in a few years. Like crack.
They are waiting until it's renegotiation time with the carriers for ESPN, ESPN2 et al. They are going to say 'You had better pick up the LHN or we won't let you carry ESPNU and ESPNEWS' Then it'll be available all over.
I still don't know why they created it though. UT football is an excellent brand, but this is college football... there aren't many national brands outside of religious schools (ND/BYU).
Good luck this Saturday, I'm not in Texas anymore due to graduation from Tech, so I won't be in Austin.
If the Tech team that played in Norman show up, we'll donkey-stomp you... if the team from last week vs ISU shows up, it might be an epic ass-kicking the other way.
