I don't want FOX to have anything to do with SEC football because everyone that works for them hates the SEC.

I’m pretty sure they only do that because Fox carries games for basically every major conference except the SEC and ACC. Big Ten, Big 12, Pac 12 fans eat that stuff up.

 CBS dumping the SEC is so dumb.

CBS offered $300M. Disney is reportedly coming through with an initial offer of $330M though. CBS cant compete with Disney financially and they want that SEC 3:30 time slot on ABC. ESPN reportedly pitched the idea that they could better serve the conference and put more SEC teams in the primetime spotlight. 

I've not read anything but do you think ABC/ESPn keeps the marquee SEC game at 3:30? 

The 1st thing I thought about was some of these big games getting the ABC night game slot. Bama/LSU, UGA/Bama, etc?

However the 3:30 slot is an institution so I could see them keeping that too for the top games. I hope they have the choice to do whatever vs CBS that just  had the 1primetime game each season.

That's part of what they want to work out. ESPN is offering a noon slot on a network, 3:30 slot and then that 8 PM slot for a game. It's their argument that they can give the SEC a bigger stage. I'm sure those slots are also changeable for weaker schedule weeks. The game of the week might be flipped to 8 PM. I would imagine the 3:30 will stick and maybe carry the second best game. We all know the displeasure Bama had this year with all the early games. SEC could view this as a chance to put more teams under the lights.

Good. That is what I'm hoping for just some flexibility with the potential for the big games in Primetime. 

I'm guessing that is how it will likely play out too

Hopefully that means no more ridiculous Saturday night games like Clemson against NC State or Ohio State against Indiana.

I'm also wondering where CBS turns. This would be a great chance for them to expand their coverage of the American and Mountain West conference and help teams like Boise State get more national exposure.

Big Ten TV deal ends in 2023 when the SEC deal ends. They might try to pull them off Fox.

Don't watch NBA.

I used to watch the NBA a lot until it was clear the officiating was the worst in the world.. never seen a league where it's common knowledge that who you are is why you get a call.. instead of a call being a call.. then the whole china thing ticks me off.. i won't go on a political tirade on this board regarding the nba and it's political correctness hypocrisy.. the nba opening to me is one of the worst.. the sec opening is the best imo.

better service of the conference meaning push up even more on their shows which is a win for the conference.  however i hate that it's moving off of CBS.. there was something special at 3:30pm you had the best sec game on tv every saturday.. however the money difference is freaking huge.. it's a shame CBS is now a shell of what it used to be.

Yep. I remember being a kid in the 90s and CBS was the clear cut best network out there of the big networks. It had the best TV shows and had MLB, NFL, NASCAR, College Football and March Madness. You couldn't beat it. Not only did it carry those sports, but it's coverage was the best. CBS started going downhill the second they lost NFL to FOX in 1994 and that caused John Madden and Pat Summerall to jump ship to FOX.

i remember when fox basically bought out all of the outlets right under cbs nose and relegated them to a small channel until they were able to build back up again.. fox took the nfc nfl from cbs at that time.. it took years for CBS to come back from that.  it really sucks that they are losing the SEC.. i think they do a terrific job of handling the SEC.
