Listening to SEC media days. Interesting comments


ESPN hosts and Chairman of Peach were hyping the Alabama / FSU kickoff game. Chairman indicated that Atlanta was 2nd highest city for most ACC and SEC alum and understood the fans dilemma of going to a kickoff game or bowl game due to fan's budget concerns. Indicated by using ACC / SEC schools, it would increase drive up attendance and said Cokes would be $1.50 with unlimited refills and Chik-fi-a items would be at restaurant prices (what a novel idea). Also said it was a win for the schools, because even a loss would have no effect on playoff chances as if they win their conference they are in (pretty strong statement about Conference Champions). Also, said that they won't be scheduling Notre Dame because they are locked into NBC and Shamrock game. Games are scheduled 4 years in advance, so look for more ACC / SEC match ups in the future.
