# Remembering Jack Dale - Texas Tech Red Raiders Official Athletic Site
Both of these links are worth your time. The first link are YouTube videos of some of Dale's calls. If you're a youngster, like myself, and you don't know who Jack Dale is, then I'd encourage you to learn a little about Texas Tech sports history. I also really appreciated Hyatt's thoughts on Dale.

LONGHORN NETWORK AND BIG 12 REALIGNMENT
# Big 12 Athletics Directors Meet in Dallas - Big 12 Conference - Official Athletic Site
# Big 12 nixes high school football on Longhorn Network - KansasCity.com
# "Big 12 puts one-year hold on high school games on LHN" - Behind the Stripes - ColumbiaTribune.com
# Big 12 puts hold on UT TV | Lubbock Online | Lubbock Avalanche-Journal
This appears to be over . . . for now, although I don't really think it's over. For one year, the Longhorn Network will not broadcast high school football games and no Big 12 game will be on the Longhorn Network without the consent of the other eight teams and a distribution of the revenue. The Big 12 links has the official press release. The LAJ link has quotes from Texas Tech AD Kirby Hocutt on the possibility of Texas Tech playing their game on the LHN:
"We would much prefer to be on a neutral broadcast with neutral announcers and neutral branding and advertising," Hocutt said. "Red Raider fans don’t want to watch the Texas Tech-Texas football game on the Longhorn Network, so it’s that simple."
This makes me happy.

Not surprised by this, and would guess that the next step could possibly the creditors seeking the appointment of a temporary administrator to secure Salinas' assets, which would then be turned over to a receiver (I think).#
