Texas's Longhorn Network is a 20-year, $300 million deal with ESPN that the rest of the Big 12 teams feel puts them at a disadvantage. And the Big 12 is listening. So before the network's August 26 start date the conference is working to address the concerns of those other teams. Big 12 commissioner Dan Beebe said...
quote:

"Until the members have a chance to consider all the issues and come to conclusion ... no more than one live football game will be televised on any institutional network and no high school content will be televised on a branded member's network."
ESPN also responded with a statement...
quote:

"We recognize more discussion needs to take place to properly address the questions raised by the conference. This is uncharted territory for all involved so it's logical for everyone to proceed carefully."
The Longhorn network was planning on airing 18 high school football games and the season opener against Rice.
