Georgia's Projected 2013 TV and Kickoff Times

Now that the conference has released the first three weeks' scheudle and given a bit of an indication how the TV thing will work as we move towards the SECNetwork for realz, here is my best guess at times and network coverage for Georgia football this season. CBS will continue to get the exclusive 3:30 national spot for 2013. After this season, all bets are off (I think).

My guesses for Georgia football kickoff times:

A couple of notes:
  • 10/19 and 11/9 - SEC doubleheader weekends. The worst kept secret in sports right now is LSU at Alabama at 8pm on November 9th.
  • I could see Georgia vs. Vandy in the noon CBS game on Oct. 19th. This weekend will be highly record dependent, with CBS using a 6 day window there. LSU vs. Ole Miss, South Carolina vs. Tennessee, and Arkansas vs. Alabama area also on that weekend. If Vandy beats Ole Miss opening weekend and is sporting a 5-1 or so record at that point, and Georgia hasn't crapped themselves, I think it would be the most compelling game and get the CBS national spot. 
  • Many of these games are toss ups. Tennessee is an example. Could be the CBS game. Could be the 12:21 SECN game. Same goes for the next point.... 
  • Auburn and Kentucky could be ESPN, ESPN2, or ESPNU. Much of that is dependent on ESPNs other national games and what kind of season those teams are having.
  • I could see one of Missouri or Kentucky being an evening kickoff. I don't see both being later kickoffs.
  • If both are are late kickoffs, I think we can read that as a sign that UGA's new president is different than the old one.
Thoughts?
