Texas A&M President: Longhorn Network Has Created 'Uncertainty' In Big 12

Texas A&M and Oklahoma are extremely wary of Texas' Longhorn Network and the competitive advantage it could garner the University within the Big 12.

The Aggies recently held a closed-door meeting to discuss the issue and, assumedly, reignite overtures with the Texas-less SEC.

After the meeting, San Antonio Express-News and Houston Chronicle writer Brent Zwerneman spoke with Texas A&M president R. Bowen Loftin and tweeted the concerns that were discussed.

A&M president Loftin just said after regents' closed-door session that the Longhorn Network has created 'uncertainty' in the Big 12.

Loftin went on to say that the league and its schools are working to alleviate that 'uncertainty' concerning the Longhorn Network.

Loftin said that he has not been in touch with the Southeastern Conference in quite some time.

I got the sense from Loftin that A&M is committed to making the Big 12 work -- as long as conditions are met concerning the UT network

Loftin said he didn't have a problem with ESPN striking $300 mil deal w/ UT for the network, he congratulated the Horns for good business.

It's what the Horns plan to do with the network that is 'troubling' to the Aggies
