Sooner4OU Commentary: Another wild and erant accusation and story emanating from ESPN (Otherwise known as "The Horn Network Partner"). It is so easy to see there is a conflict of interest in having ESPN and Texas together on a network. It just motivates sloppy ESPN reporters like Slater looking to rise in the ESPN ranks to take cheap shots and sensationalize any story about team that are the competition for the Longhorns. Not too mention, the recruiting advantage it grants to UT. Yes, ESPN has deals with several conferences and all, but that does not restrict or even cause a second thought for shameful reporters from trying to build their carrers on the backs of other reputable universities and teams. Shortly after the story was posted Tony Jefferson discussed the accusations with the OU coaches and there was no merit to them and the retraction was not promoted like the sensationalized and errant original story. It is simple ESPN has become to big and lost their way, it is less about proper news and reporting and more about sensationlized topical ENew'ss style stories and soundbites. OU should have their legal folks take a swipe at the shady folks over at ESPN. What do you think about ESPN and their errant stories?
