I disagree about everything about it being quality. For me the basketball pre and post game shows are terrible for the most part. The features for all sports are stale and re-run over and over. I am not a Galindo fan because he is an homer and not a subjective reporter. For me its great when the former athletes are on (we know the have a bias) but the ESPN reporters should be more objective. The best thing about the network for me are the basketball and baseball games not on other networks and the pre and post game for football.
I agree the LHN shouldn't be a problem but I think there was so much time and energy put into the negotiations for the network that other issues went to the back burner. Some coaches thought because we had such a presence on ESPN that would substitute for normal recruiting activities...............

First of all, Galindo is not an ESPN reporter. He works for the Longhorn Network. If he were on ESPN, he would expect to be more objective, but he's not. I suppose you would also like to replace Craig Way for someone more "objective"??
So I guess you must be the type of fan who only wants to hear the dribble of Mack Brown et al with no questioning of decisions or follow-up questions. Second of all Galindo works for ESPN and LHN and if a program is to be of any value (like all access) then it should be truthful and factual. Craig Way is a play by play radio man who I like but he doesn't act like Dave South (whom I assume you admire)....................
This is just shamefully pitiful. Sorry I interrupted your pity party...
I would trade LHN for being a national contender again in a heartbeat. Mack certainly didn't need more distractions at the time LHN came out. Now it's chasing household names from our conference and our schedule which is, in turn , affecting recruiting in a big way. Same is true for OU. We're on an island now and the Lord of the flies is Deloss Dodds. Letting Nebraska, Colorado, A&M and Missouri move on and replacing them with TCU and West Virginia has not done ourselves any favors. We are still the last non SEC team to win a national championship. So much for disparity. I'ld rather be in a great conference than be a hoarder of redicilous wealth.
It's always amazing how one who I assume is a graduate from the University of Texas can read a 2 sentence post by another individual and come to such a glaringly wrong conclusion from it.
There's exhibit one on how LHN is "correlate able". Another poster gets it.
If you read his post on a consistent basis then you will not make that statement..............

There is no correlation. Mack would be doing speaking engagements, interviews, etc with that same time.
The LHN didn't run Nebraska or Colorado off. They left before the LHN. A&M left because they have always wanted to go to the SEC, and Missouri left because they thought they would be left in the cold if the Big 12 collapsed.
Our recruiting is not affected by the LHN. Our play on the field, and A&M's best season in 20-30 yrs is what has hurt our recruiting. When our play on the field improves, and the LHN gets better distribution, the LHN will be beneficial to our recruiting.
