re: SEC Network: Most successful sports launch in cable/satellite history - JPLSU1981
I think when all is said and done it will add about $15 mil to each schools TV revenue...bringing us all into the $35-40 mil range per year for TV revenue. The numbers are pretty much set, the only question mark now is sum of startup costs....

re: SEC Network: Most successful sports launch in cable/satellite history - JPLSU1981
Actually, probably to the contrary… The SEC network means that we will probably never have individual school channels....There is too much money in combining the content of all the schools and selling it. The SEC has quite clearly showed that the Longhorn network model was a stupid one, and this mod...

I'm hoping someone on the rant can help me or at least point me in the direction of someone locally in BR that can help me with this. When I was a senior at LSU (2003), I went around and got all the current coaches/AD/chancellor to sign a football so that I could have a unique piece of memorabili...

uLL is a better team...I think a lot of people just figured they'd choke with all the expectations. They did, but it appears they got the "choke" out of their system in Game1 and then settled down and got back to baseball. If ULL wins this game, IMO you can go ahead and pencil them into Omaha.

Hard to pick between Florida and USC...both very disappointing performances in the Regionals.
