To the editor:
I don't know whose decision it was, the Kansas University Athletic Department or Sunflower Broadband, to broadcast the game only on a premium channel. In my humble opinion the decision was for the birds, and I don't mean the Jayhawks.
Editor's note: Neither Sunflower Broadband nor the Kansas University Athletic Corp. was responsible for the decision to broadcast the Kansas-Missouri game on ESPNU. According to KU Assistant Athletic Director Jim Marchiony, the Big 12 Conference negotiates television rights with ESPN, which then has the right to broadcast Big 12 games on whatever "member of the ESPN family" it chooses. ESPN has chosen to feature several "marquee teams" on ESPNU, he said, to try to build interest in that channel.
