NCAA officials released a statement today saying they will monitor the Longhorn Network to make sure it shows “acceptable content” in regard to high school sports.
“With respect to NCAA bylaws as the Association has continued to review the issue, acceptable content is limited to scores, statistics, standings and news video used to report those details,” the statement said. “We will continue to monitor the Longhorn Network to determine if the content is produced within those details.”
Earlier this summer, network officials expressed plans to show live games _ and, later, news-related highlights from high school games _ and were told such content was not permissible under NCAA bylaws because of recruiting implications.
