The Good News:  Goodbye SECSPN!

The Bad News:  Games on Peacock.  I'll be motherfarked if I'm giving Comcast one red cent even if that means I have to use questionable streams to get my Buckeye games.

So will the SEC get 2 billion a season ?

Either way, great for those poor poor underfunded schools that have been bent over a barrel as of late by those greedy players.  Them players better keep their hands off this TV money.

Is this a real thing or is this a "nobody is giving the Buckeyes respect" Columbus talk radio thing?

I've been using it for well over a decade and it isn't because my alma mater is competing anywhere ( except in baseball).

And either way it's too late to put the genie back in the f*cking bottle. The SEC got too many years of free airplay. Not just ESPN/ABC, but CBS as well.

My alma mater is in the Big Ten.  They play football in that they have a team, but I wouldn't exactly say they're competing.  I've never had this concern about ESPN.

If the concern is that the SEC gets outsized attention on ESPN, well duh.  So does LeBron, the Yankees, Tiger Woods, and the NFL.  Considering that the SEC has won 12 of the last 15 national championships, it stands to reason that they would get more attention.

blastoh: and how much will  the kids playing get?


Depends on the school but cash payouts for students are generally around $12,000-15,000 a year (tax free) as their "housing allotment". It's a tax-free cash payment they can use for whatever.

They also typically receive between $2,000 and $5,000 a year in a "cost of attendance grant". This, again, is a cash payment.

They also get paid for image and likeness which can vary from student to student. This can range from MSU where each and every football player gets $500 a month from United Wholesale Mortgage in return for a single Tweet a month to Ohio State which has about $3 million a year given to their football team's players (spread out amongst the team with most going to the starts).

So for a scholarship benchwarmer at, say, MSU they're probably making around $25,000-$30,000 a year. For a star at Ohio State, they're making six figures.

Most schools aren't making their NIL deals public but there are certainly ones like Michigan which have a team of folks whose only job is to solicit NIL deals for their players (not just football, all sports).

That is about $65 million/year/team, which is on par with the SEC's current deal. The NFL's deal is nearly $200 million more than that.So I'd call it an "SEC-style deal" as opposed to an "NFL-style deal".

I'd be impressed if tuition went down (or at least stopped going up).  Maybe a few schools in the Big 10 not named "The Ohio State" will have to subsidize their football team (and associated athletic departments) less.

But somehow I'm sure it will go to coaches, assistant coaches, media PR flacks, and absolutely nobody directly involved with either moving the football or having anything to do with the school.

Ohio State should go around to all of the dweebs in this shiatty conference and let them know that it'd be in their best interests to thank Ohio State for making this possible by each of them kicking in $500,000 a year. A little bit of gratitude never hurt anybody and makes the world an even better place.

Aar1012: More importantly, we got that music...


I might be in the minority here but I associate that music with the SEC and would prefer it to be "theirs." I'm not a big fan of homogenization and I like that different flavors of college football can be found in different places.

Lebron, the Yankees, Tiger Woods, and the NFL all have systems In place that pick a champion in their respective leagues using skillS on the field regardless of what the Talk Heads say.

The SEC will get a leg up because the talking heads can influence the votes of pollsters and the committee.

Does it concern you that the national championship of a sport comes down to voting by judges like it was rhythmic gymnastics?
