    Wow. That's a very, very long deal.

    But CBS obviously likes having the best football conference in the country on its airwaves [ducking].

    In that case, they better amp up negotiations with the Pac-10.

    Respect the SEC (the best conference money can buy), but the history of the majority of its biggest players when travelling -- especially outside the South -- is more than a little amusing. Are you listening, Georgia?

    Guys, I'm kidding. We don't need this debate before the season starts.

    Let's wait 'til week 4.

    Maybe not the absolute best (that'll be up for discussion every year), but hands-down the most competitive within its confines year-in and year-out.

    I hope the conference poobahs interrupted their Scrooge McDuck swimming in gold coins fantasies long enough to make sure they got better coverage for basketball season - and not just when Big Blue is on the schedule.

    Definitely. Any combination of UGA/UF/LSU/S.C./Tenn./Aub./Ala. is usually good TV. Lundquist and Blackledge just sound like Saturday afternoons to me.

    Preaching to the choir with that one.

    Now that Keith Jackson is done, Lundquist inherited the flag-bearer status for college football. Musburger, not so much.

    By 2023 the SEC will have merged into the NFL and Timmy will be on his 12 straight MVP season.
