DESPERATE ACT? CBSSPORTS.com’s Jerry Hinnen wrote LHN at this stage has “precious little leverage in its carriage distribution battle, and handing it the Longhorns' biggest nonconference matchup of the season ... appears to be the strongest card left in the LHN's increasingly limited deck.” Hinnen: “All of that is also simply the harsh reality of the corner into which the LHN -- and the Longhorns -- have currently backed.” Meanwhile, it is “good news that there should be some workaround" that will allow Ole Miss fans to watch the game "other than trying to make it out to the local sports bar, which might not have LHN either.” It “remains to be seen exactly what these ‘accommodations’ might be," but an "expensive pay-per-view option might not be a dramatic improvement” (CBSSPORTS.com, 6/4).
