My name is Joe Glover, and I’m essentially just a normal, sports obsessed college student. A veteran, I spent 6 years in the Navy before attending the University of Oregon. Now I’m in my final term of school, trying to figure out what I want to do with life before leaving.
In the meantime, the point of this blog is to outline the crazy world of collegiate athletics, and point out the ramifications of one school siding with the most powerful sports media conglomerate in the world, ESPN. It’s not often that something as cataclysmic as massive conference shifting can be traced back to one specific event, but in this case you absolutely can. Namely, the creation of the ESPN/University of Texas media merger, the Longhorn Network.
