re: If OU and UT joined the SEC - Irons Puppet
The SEC Leadership has received praise over the years for how the have directed the Conference. They have made the right decision to expand the Conference and start the SECN, but they have made some wrong decisions on who they expanded with. Going into Texas was a good decision and even SC, but did ...

re: If OU and UT joined the SEC - Irons Puppet
[quote]OK, maybe. But out-of-state subscribers pay substantially less to ESPN than SEC states do, and I don't think Oklahoma has enough TVs to make in-state subscribers a lucrative deal for the SEC. I haven't done the math but I think it's possible that bringing in OU would actually cost money to ex...

re: If OU and UT joined the SEC - Irons Puppet
[quote]Still irrelevant. EVERY cable and Direct TV subscriber in Texas pays the same price for SECN, whether they ever watch it or not. Same deal for all SEC states. [/quote] It is the footprint outside of TX that would be appealing to the Networks (to include the West and Midwest). Having OU and...

re: When will Auburn be good at football again? - Irons Puppet
When they have both UGA and Bama on the home schedule the same year. Because we all know from last year, SEC fans think Auburn is unbeatable in JHS. At least that was the excuse those two used in 2017....

re: If OU and UT joined the SEC - Irons Puppet
[quote]It would mean the majority of the TV market in TX. It would add about $5M to each teams payout. [/quote] The $5M I was talking about would be the bargaining power the SEC would have when negotiating the SECN and the rest of the TV packages. ...

re: If OU and UT joined the SEC - Irons Puppet
Nobody is interested in watching Aggie Football. JFF elevated their profile for two years, but that quickly faded away. If they were half the draw that Ag fans want us to believe, they would dominate the TV ratings. Not happening even when they played Bama. What would the rating be for TX vs Bama or...

[quote]Well, tell me which year AU didn't suck, and I will try to find some stats, but I think we can agree that A&M is at least as valuable to the SEC as AU is, right? Based on the actual numbers? [/quote] 2017,2013,2010....

[quote]te: Hes also mad that the conference his little school has been a part of for 100 years would kick them out immediately if A&M forced them to But only because there are more TVs in Texas than the rest of the SEC combined. That's what this guy doesn't understand. [/quote] So the SEC nee...
