It's going to take an act of God for Vandy to ever get a CBS or ESPN game. Only 3 real SEC games and they still get shafted.
CBS took its time in deciding which game to air this week, but their final choice isn’t a surprise… it’s Texas A&M’s visit to Alabama.
By the way, remember how CBS officials let word leak out that Missouri and A&M wouldn’t add much value to the SEC? Well, the network sure has aired a number of those schools’ games this year. As we suggested at the time, that “slipped” information was all just part of the back-and-forth television negotiations between the network and the conference.
First, here’s the finalized TV schedule for this Saturday, November 10th:
Arkansas at South Carolina — 12:00pm ET on CBS
Missouri at Tennessee — 12:21pm ET on SEC Network (check your local listings)
Louisiana-Lafayette at Florida — 12:21pm ET on SEC Network (check your local listings)
Texas A&M at Alabama — 3:30pm ET on CBS
Georgia at Auburn — 7:00pm ET on ESPN2
Vanderbilt at Ole Miss — 7:00pm ET on ESPNU
Mississippi State at LSU — 7:00pm ET on ESPN
And here’s the TV schedule for November 17th (and man is it a cupcake-filled slate on that date):
Western Carolina at Alabama — 12:21pm ET on SEC Network (check your local listings)
Arkansas at Mississippi State — 12:21pm ET on SEC Network (check your local listings)
Ole Miss at LSU — 3:30pm ET on CBS
Jacksonville State at Florida — 1:00pm ET on Pay-per-view or local television

Georgia Southern at Georgia — 1:30pm ET on Pay-per-view or local television

Western Carolina, Jacksonville State, Wofford, Georgia Southern, Alabama A&M, Sam Houston State, and Samford.
Ridiculous. Absolutely ridiculous. I personally wouldn’t pay a single dollar to attend or view any of those creampuff games. Those who do are simply encouraging schools to continue to schedule such creampuffs.
