Is it just me who finds Greg Sankey’s sanctimonious posturing a wee bit distasteful?
Now Brian’s an unabashed SEC hater, but he’s not wrong there. Sankey took a gamble, just like every P5 commissioner did (or, more precisely, every president of a P5 school did). Yeah, sure, you can mock the Big Ten for its about face if that makes you feel superior, but Brian’s point about Johnson should sting, assuming Sankey gives a shit about anything besides the bottom line.
Anyway, what I find troubling about Sankey’s comments is stooping to use a horror show of a year as a reason to work the refs in order to force every other commissioner to march in lockstep with the lowest common denominator. Not that my opinion is gonna change anything, at least as long as the checks keep rolling in.
