In his opening remarks to the media horde at SEC Media Days, Mike Slive addressed the much discussed “Project X,” which you should all know by now means a potential/probable SEC-only channel created in partnership with ESPN:
“There has been a whole lot of speculation about “Project X.” Is it still a secret? I don’t think so. But we now call it “Project SEC.” Our objective long-term to work with our television partner to provide fans with greater access to favored teams, more opportunities to watch rivals, and more inside into who we are — a conference of 14 great universities.
I’d love to say more. I know you want me to say more. I won’t say more. I will, though, before I get too much older and before you get too much older.”
Back in May of 2010 we at MrSEC.com wrote that with expansion would come new inventory and with that inventory the league could still “create its own SEC Network.” It sure sounds like that’s exactly what’s going to happen in the not so distant future.
