ITEM: T-sip U. the other day inked a 20-year, $300 extra-large (that’s million to those of you in the Church of the SubTarded) contract with the four-lettered Mickey Mouse outfit (that’d be “ESPN” to the aforementioned SubTarded) to broadcast TU athletic events.
UT President William Powers Jr. said the agreement, which also involves IMG College, a company that handles marketing and licensing for the university, will create 50 to 100 network jobs based at Royal-Memorial Stadium, fund some academic initiatives and further cement the university’s sports brand, already one of the most lucrative in the nation.
”We see this as a very important part of sort of continuing to reinvent the models through which we do business,” Powers said. “This is reflective of being much more creative in how public higher education positions itself as we go forward, even aside from the athletics.”
LORD VENOMOUS’ REACTION: Well, they have to meet the player payroll somehow.
(NOTE: The above is my First Amendment-protected opinion. TU attorneys – you can turn it sideways and go fuck yourselves with it.)
