All that wonderful new TV money raining down on the SEC… now it’s time for the check to be presented:
… Since every SEC football game will now be televised, Adams said he expects Georgia will be playing more night games under the new deal, probably one more per year.
Games on ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU and regional syndication will generally be played in prime time, according to the SEC.
“Our posture remains we prefer Saturday afternoon football,” Adams said.
Evans said Georgia is likely to request some noon slots instead of night games from the network.
The new deal requires two SEC Thursday night games a year, Adams said, but some schools like Georgia have a posture of not playing on Thursdays.
Other schools are also more receptive to playing under the lights more often.
Evans said the biggest change he expects are more night games on the road.
ESPN, all I can say is that if you’re gonna jerk us around with all of this night action, the least you can do is give us Uncle Ron.
