Let the conspiracy theories begin.
Southeastern Conference sports -- including football and basketball -- will have a 24-hour-a-day home when the SEC Network launches in August, 2014.
Smart move by ESPN - will be interesting to see the full numbers of the deal, but they recognize the value of securing college football and the most watched conference. They'll get huge numbers throughout the south even in the off-season if they can generate their own solid programming and content with replays, documentaries, and coverage of spring football, the draft, etc.

The NCAA should ban any ESPN employee from voting in any college ranking poll - total conflict of interest.
This is not good for college football but it is good for ESPN.
What happened to CBS? The article didn't mention anything about the deal the sec had with them.
Not trying to be a spaz, but after I messaged this I found an article in sporting news that talks about the possible contracts with other networks and the CBS deal.
CBS’s deal with the SEC, negotiated in 2008, pays an average of $55 million a year to the SEC over 15 years. A prorated increase would take the value of that deal up to $65 million a year. The SEC could generate additional revenue by adding more years on the end of the contract.
CBS still will carry the same number of football games each season as part of its package, and network executives are arguing that schools such as Alabama, Florida and LSU—not Missouri and Texas A&M—drive the value of the conference. Without additional inventory, CBS’s stance has been that it shouldn’t pay more solely because the conference added two new schools.

The way I see it, the one way to keep the SEC from dominating ESPN is by having consistent, winning football at ND. No other school or conference can do it. We Are ND!!!!!!
