2016 = 9 games on SECN
2015 = 6 games on SECN
2014 = 5 Games on SECN
LOL, Only Missouri would have 9 games on a conference network in 1 season. That is inase and speaks volumes about the value of the content.
They played 9 football games on the SEC network last year?? That sucks!! Dang, the years before the SEC network they were on ESPN or ABC almost every game.
They used to do a lot of PPV games back in the day and never shared a dime. They pioneered unequal revenue sharing then used it as an excuse to leave.
I'ts really bizarre how many games they are on SECN. Its' like they said OK we will take you since the B1G said no but you play in the Florida division and most of your games will be on SECN.
One of my favorite movie scenes is in The Outlaw Josey Wales as grandma goes into the general store and won't take the molasses becasue it's from Missouri. "Everything from Missouri has a taint about it"
The SECN has two channels operational most weekends. CBS gets first refusal for their game. ESPN takes their best one and puts it on ESPN prime time in the evening. They put their second choice on ESPN2 or ESPNU. Missouri just wasn't that compelling last year.....so, the get on the either the SECN or SECN alternate #1. We do have an alternate #2 but I've not seen it used as of yet.
