Eye on Art! is a semi-regular feature of the Eye on College Football blog. You've heard the expression "a picture is worth 1,000 words?" Well pictures drawn in MS Paint are worth more like 500 words, but 500 should be good enough.

On Thursday the Austin American-Statesman's Kirk Bohls tweeted that the Longhorn Network -- aka SCOURGE OF THE BIG 12 -- will be showing two Big 12 games this season according to ESPN VP Burke Magnus. Which will cause some problems considering that the network originally said that it'd be showing only one Big 12 game a season.

Then, to make matters worse, Bohls later tweeted that The Longhorn Network will also be showing highlights of high school games, which should also go over really well with the rest of the Big 12 conference.

Concerned about the impact this news could have on the Big 12, Texas released a statement on Thursday in an attempt to smooth things over.

Yes, I'd say they are.
