Satisfying the gap in the market wherein there were simply not enough television outlets from which to consume football in the Fall, ESPN’s SEC Network launches on August 14th. I’m a Big Ten alum and live in Chicago, but have always been fascinated by Southern football culture. I traveled to Baton Rouge with my Dad two seasons ago to see LSU take on (and, lamentably, lose to) Alabama, and it was fantastic. We caught on at a pig roast tailgate and I drank a lot of whiskey. So much fun.
All of these videos are getting me hyped for football in general — well, except for Kentucky’s, which is about basketball — which is dangerous because it’s still so far away and it’s not like I want to wish away the summer to get there.
SEC gurus: What would be the best game to catch this season, and why?
