Re: SEC AND ESPN MARRIAGE

Re: SEC AND ESPN MARRIAGE 


I don't agree with your comparative scores analysis -- it's too simplistic, and comparative scores don't work.  I also think, contrary to the spirit of your post, that the SEC is the best top to bottom conference in the country.

That being said, I also tire of the ESPN love affair with certain conferences SEC in football, Big East and ACC in basketball).  ESPN has a heavy bias in favor of eastern sports, and it's infuriating to the rest of us.  I understand that the biggest sports markets are on the east coast, and, therefore, they will get the most air time becaue of advertising dollars.  But how does that excuse their failure to have ubiased broadcasters call an impartial game when they do bother to broadcast non-east coast sports?  Would less people watch a game announced without bias?  Would advertisers pay less for unbiased announcers?  I don't think so.

" the SEC is the best top to bottom conference in the country".????????

How can we tell if they mostly only want to play each other within their conference?

The bottom part of the SEC this year's win-loss record:
Ole Miss     0-8
Tenn.           1-7
Miss St.       2-6
Ky                 2-6
Fla.               3-5

Best top to bottom?  Yeah right.

Tonight, I witnessed a pretty boring game with no offense other than a field goal kicker and one touchdown.  Lame.  Defense on the run?  Alabama good.  LSU fair.  I wonder if OSU will get second or will they give it to LSU, who played "girly ball" tonight?

I am more interested with how either one of these teams would have looked against Okie State.  They couldn't have looked any worse than LSU did by getting less than 100 yards of offense.  In a championship game that is utter embarrassment.  If they had been playing LSU I would be interested how their pass attack would have done against the LSU secondary who made a mediocre Bama pass attack look pretty capable last night.

Either way it would have been more interesting/compelling to have Okie State in there against one of the SEC teams... at least enough to keep me from switching channels to replays of the Cotton Bowl and Pawn Stars last night.  Sheesh, what an underwhelming title game.
