Grist for the SEC Network mill

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.

    Finebaum would find a way in


  2. I don’t know about Mrs. Malzahn’s popularity in Auburn. Gus and family couldn’t get a seat at the local Waffle House right after their big win over Georgia. Waffle House comps the whole Auburn fb staff because of the overslight. I don’t know if they included the wives. FW to the .42 on the vid.


  3. Oh, I don’t know, Senator. There are control and image issues to consider.


  4. Kristi Malzahn on a reality TV show? And Gus was like SHUT. UP.

    As long as they have Jen B in a bikini with a bag over her head, I’m in. Minus the GPOOE, of course

    Are you kidding me Steve Superior will be headlining the new SEC comedy show. He’s better than most of the professional comedians. As long as he’s winning he is comic gold. Picture Ray Goff being brought back as his straight man, wow. Steve to Terrell Davis on why he’s glad Georgia didn’t let him TD run it. I mean he does it without writers, just golden.
