Bottom line is.


Texas still has the Big12 by the shorthairs and, at present, the LHN and the guaranteed payment to UT by ESPN, effectively functions similarly to right of first refusal. Movement happens either when the Big12 current deal expires or when ESPN has a better cash operating option than they currently enjoy with the LHN. The operating results of the LHN/ESPN deal are kept pretty close to the vest but, I think most now believe it no longer bleeds ESPN of cash and whether it now makes a little bit or loses a little bit is probably immaterial to the ultimate decision.
