Oklahoma Football Gets A Houston Radio Outlet; Aggies Still Out Of Luck
As you'll remember from our post on 1560 The Game a few weeks ago, it was mentioned that the station was in negotiations with a Big 12 Conference school to air its football games this season. Now there was some speculation (and hope) in the comments that this team would be the Aggies. But just as the Aggies keep on losing on the playing field, they also keep on losing on the radio front.
Chance McLain, 1560's program director, has confirmed to Hair Balls that starting on Saturday, the station will be airing Oklahoma's football games, as well as head coach Bob Stoops' coach's show. Oklahoma kicks off its 2009 football season on Saturday night against BYU at 6 p.m., and that game will be played in Jerry Jones' new pleasure palace in Arlington. So let's just hope the punters on both teams suck because it's not much fun listening to a punter hit a video board while listening to the radio.
As for you Aggie fans, well, you're just going to have to keep hopping around the Clear Channel empire of stations in hopes that one of them will have the game.
