Will the SEC like the College Football Playoff as well as the BCS?

While few fans mourn the passing of the Bowl Championship Series, the computer-heavy formula used to determine the participants for college football’s national title the last 16 seasons, the Southeastern Conference could be forgiven for a moment’s grief. The SEC went 9-2 in title games and was the only conference to have two teams meet in the title game.

SEC Network seeks to hit the ground running

The SEC Network, which launches in one month, has viewers (26 million homes and rising), content (45 football games, more than 100 men’s and 60 women’s basketball games) and will cash in on the league’s passionate fan base. Also, three of the KC area’s biggest cable and satellite providers without contracts for the network, Time Warner, Comcast and DirecTV, are likely to reach terms before the Aug. 14 launch date.
