David Paschall has an article today that speculates on how often Georgia will appear on CBS’ 2008 broadcast schedule.
Short answer: it could be quite a lot, according to Mike Aresco, the network’s senior vice president of programming.
… Aresco said CBS likely will open its coverage schedule Sept. 13 with Georgia’s trip to South Carolina. The Bulldogs also could be on the network against Tennessee, LSU (Oct. 25), Florida (Nov. 1), Auburn (Nov. 15) and Georgia Tech (Nov. 29).
The Tennessee-Georgia game will be part of a 3:30 and 8 p.m. doubleheader with LSU-Florida, but it has not been determined which game gets which time slot. CBS has a noon and 3:30 doubleheader on Nov. 29 that likely will be the Alabama-Auburn and Georgia-Georgia Tech games.
Interestingly, ESPN has grabbed Alabama-Georgia as one of its priority picks, which I assume will make that a night game. I wonder if Mike Patrick will be inspired to let fly with another Britney reference.
