In just the past few weeks, there has been talk of the Sooners and Aggies going to the SEC. Why? Because of the Longhorn Network.
There was speculation that Texas was going to put high school games with Texas recruits on the network. No big deal, right? Wrong.
OU and Texas A&M saw this as a huge recruiting tool. That didn't set well with them, and they let the Longhorns and the rest of the Big 12 know it.
Big 12 Commissioner, Dan Beebe, stepped in and put an end to the placement of high school games on the Longhorn Network. Beebe also axed Texas' plan to put a Big 12 Conference football game on their network.
This would cause the opposing teams' fans to have to pay for the Longhorn Network to see their team (likely Baylor or Oklahoma State). Beebe's intervention quieted the commotion, for now.
