Default New SEC Contract to be revealed, what it means...

http://articles.washingtonpost.com/2...ner-mike-slive

The announcement was supposed to be this past Tuesday, they delayed because of the Boston Marathon bombings. I am thinking it will happen Monday. They can't wait TOO long, but the NFL draft is the latter part of next week, so I don't know if they'll want to compete with that either. I can't see this announcement being delayed too much longer without the details leaking, but we'll see.

Projections have this TV deal being worth 23-25 million a year per school, and that is before factoring in an SEC network and what it can bring in. All in all, I see us having a 5-10 million dollars a year advantage over other conference teams, with the biggest advantage being over ACC teams including clempson.

The biggest question I have is in regards to what this new influx of funds will specifically mean to the athletics department. Do we have any projects on hold for funding?

The news of the day may push the announcement back a little further, I'm not sure. Slive wanted a full day (and most of the week) of coverage for the deal. Looks like he's either going to share the news or delay again, hopefully he'll go with the first option.

Hmmm....

You claimed in another thread that it was 30-35 not counting the SEC network.

The link I posted in that thread showed that the ACC actually will bring in 24 million per school not counting an ACC network if it gets made.

I think your counting your chickens before theyre hatched again.

I used the numbers you linked in the thread, and in this thread I was using the numbers for the tv deal alone and clearly said they were projections. I also did not include the bowl payouts. Try to keep up. Three total things will converge to give the real numbers:

1. TV contract
2. Bowl payouts/Playoffs
3. Conference network

As far as the Conference network goes, neither the ACC nor the SEC quite know what to expect. The others are a different story.

Default Re: New SEC Contract to be revealed, what it means...

According to MrSEC.com this announcement will be coming on Thursday now. Slive did answer a lot of other questions yesterday, but this wasn't discussed:

Quote:
SEC commissioner Mike Slive will appear before the media on Thursday — along with ESPN representatives — to finally shed more light on the soon-to-come SEC Network.
I guess we are going to keep pushing it back until this is the only story of the day. If it gets more press because of that, it's probably a good idea, but I really wish they would go ahead and get it done.

Still waiting for the details of the contract to come out per the annual payout. But some tidbits:

- New deal runs to 2034
- SEC Network launches August of 2014
- Will be based in Charlotte where ESPN has a regional hub

Default Re: New SEC Contract to be revealed, what it means...

Some other interesting facts:

* Only two Thursday night football games will be played over the course of a season and there will be no new weeknight package of games. (Good.) Each Saturday in the fall, then, the SEC Network will carry three games per day — meaning one at noon, one in mid-afternoon, and one in the evening. CBS has agreed to allow a game to go head-to-head with its SEC game of the week. That’s very, very big. That shows you the strength of the SEC, as you can be sure CBS does not want any competition in the 3:30pm ET time slot. But the network agreed to it anyway. CBS will continue to have the first pick on games each week.

* Slive said he anticipates further discussion of a potential nine-game football schedule.

This would likely mean the 6 divisional opponents, 2 rotating opponents and 1 standing opponent from the other division.

* UPDATE — Buried in the SEC’s Q&A sheet (linked to below) is this nugget: “The Network will televise the SEC Championships for all sports other than football.” If that’s correct, you’ll need the SEC Network if you want to watch the SEC men’s basketball tournament championship game in March of 2015. That’s a bit surprising.

This should also influence baseball, if that's the case

Default Re: New SEC Contract to be revealed, what it means...

Color me skeptical on the issue of "carriage".

I gaurantee that espn is going to want to drain every last cent out of the providers. With that in consideration, i am going to just say that there will be some major providers holding out until the bitter end. It is nice and dandy that at&t/uverse is onboard, but that is a sliver of households. And, Espn can try and use us fans as leverage in the negotiations all they want, but if the price is too high for the channel than there will be no agreement.

I waited 2 yrs after the initial launch in order to get espnu on my cable system and 1 year for espn 2. I was thouroughly frustrated at at that point, but it taught me how the television industry works. It revolves around the dollar. I know we still have a year and a half to get this all sewn up but i gaurantee some will be left in the cold, feeling they have been hosed yet again.

Now is the time to make sure your cable system will have it. If enough people in your area request it, they will make it happen.

I did hear back from Mr. SEC, they are still looking at 30-35 million dollars a year as a projection of the deal, but they haven't released figures yet.
