into their regional networks. If the LHN doesn't work and ESPN cancels it, then UT will be free to approach them again.
Oh, and UT explored joining the Big 10 in 2009 per emails with Jim Delaney that were shared with tOSU and released under the state FOIA. That is BEFORE the Big 10 announced they were expanding and took NU. They also made overtures in 2010 to the ACC as well.
So they're a serial realigner. Deal with it.
