    He sure does speak fluent BS. He seems to just keep wanting the Congress to settle it. There had better be some kind of ex post facto rule on the NIL deals or some of these “Student Athletes” will be screwed.

    Making it harder for me to watch college football is going to kill my interest in it way faster than than allowing student-athletes to make money off of their NIL.

    They are very gifted at figuring out what you really want to watch and putting a pay wall in front of it. You don’t suppose they’d give up commercials if they charge for access? Nah.

    I guess we will go back to the days of listening to the games on the radio since they aren’t being broadcast on tv. Everything old will be new again.

    Might not be so bad after all. Listening to a Georgia game on a dove field or in the boat fishing was a great way to spend a Saturday.

    Well Senator, I thank you for turning me on to YouTube tv, the only game I had trouble with the away at ND

    I will preemptively thank you for distilling this next arrangement for us. They will probably only give us two weeks before the season starts so that we all have hair triggers on our wallets.

  8. I look forward to paying to listen to Beth Mowins and Tim Tebow broadcast our games. Good times.

    Well, that’s one way to get people to go to the cupcake games: make them harder to find on TV!

      And I think you’re on to something, Snoop. Can’t see UGA/UF behind a pay wall. Dawgs/Samford? Every time. The time is coming, imo, that every game will come with a price and that price will be determined by the viewer interest the game demands. SEC Championship? Sure, for $29.99! UGA/Auburn? $15.99! Dawgs/NE Coastal Missouri? Account credit for $1.99, maybe. I could be wrong..

    I see more time enjoying other things on Fall Saturdays. Absurd targeting calls, more drama with NIL, and having to pay to watch it. CFB is the last sport I follow closely stick and ball or motorsport, and I don’t follow CFB as closely as I did a few years ago.

      On a side note, I have been buying DVDs, and Blu-Rays at 2nd and Charles and second hand stores. I have not had much interest in new TV shows on any platform or movies. Ala carte programming is great in theory, until you pay $60-80 here, $20 there, internet goes up to even view the platforms you’re paying for. You realize you’re paying more than you used to and just for 1 show here and there.

        Speaking of old stuff, was at the old homestead last weekend and just opened up the old drawers of VCR tapes and sitting there were Munson’s Greatest Calls, Volumes 1, 2 and 3! (And of course, the video they made of the 1997 Florida game was also there too!). I knew we have 1, and thought there was a second, but there were actually 3!!! Could not watch (I think I might have an old VCR/DVD combo), and so left them there but may try to pick them up next time I am home and bring them back with me. Anyone know a good place that can convert VCR tapes to a DVD or digital file that you could watch on your computer?

    So there are UGA football fans that don’t have SEC Network available?

      Yeah, its weird – they are going to have us pay for the SEC Network, and then cannibalize their own network by moving games to another service? I will apparently be the last idiot out there still paying for cable tv and wondering what I am getting for it….

      • They’re going to take the Charleston Southern type of games to the streaming only platform. I’m assuming a cable log-in will allow you to watch games on the streaming platform.

          Most all the UGA baseball games are streaming. And yes, you simply authorize with your cable/sat provider. Mine is Dish. It’s relatively painless if you have a smart TV, Roku, Firestick, etc. Now if there is contract language allowing them to bypass cable/sat providers and stick it on ESPN+… now, you’ve got to pay more. We currently have the Disney/Hulu/ESPN+ bundle, runs us about $10 a month as Verizon customers… I think….

    I actually look forward to the direct subscription model. I’d rather just subscribe to ESPN, since it’s the only reason for me to carry cable in the first place. Even if they charge higher than usual rates for their subscription, it’ll be cheaper than a cable package.

    • I think I agree contingent on what they charge us for the subscription. I’m afraid in the end, we’ll end up paying more than we were for cable/satellite once we’ve subscribed to multiple services.

  14. I already pay for ESPN and the SEC network. Been doing it for years. It is not a big deal.
