My last two posts have made me wonder if Mike Slive isn’t missing a terrific opportunity for his fledgling broadcast enterprise. Have the cameras follow his football coaches around for the entirety of SEC Media Days and he’s got himself one helluva reality TV show.
We’ve had sideshows before, but they’ve usually pitted the coaches against conference administration. This time, it’s coaches versus coaches, it’s getting personal and perhaps turning ugly. Throw in a “Housewives of the SEC” show (how do Mrs. Sumlin and Mrs. Malzahn take to having their hubbies’ livelihoods threatened by the likes of Bielema and Saban?) and you’ve got some mighty compelling drama to sell.
Shoot, that might be enough to get DirecTV on board. Go for it, Commish.
