As many of you know to us who live in the Southeastern U.S, College Football is a fairly big deal. It's truly a year around sport and anywhere from Texas to South Carolina, you'll find a ton of people who don't now how to converse about anything other that football.

And yes, they'll have a few football games.
Heck, they even have their own "Gameday" crew. And it will be really interesting to see what happens on the day the big "College Gameday" crew shows up at the same place the "SEC" crew does.
Admittedly we got some laughs based on the Social Media posts of some of our friends lauding the launch quite possibly without knowing they'll have an endless run of Paul Finebaum quotes and smiling Tim Tebow as the faces of their so-called network.

And for the rest of you who are not quite so enthused or don't talk SEC football 24/7, 365 days a year just remember when your cable or satellite bill goes up at the end of the year, you can thank your friends on "The Network". And never forget our friends at the 4-letter also are the creators of the incredibly popular Longhorn Network.
