Iron Bowl not on CBS

On the drive back from Kentucky, we had a spirited discussion about the number of times one SEC team could appear on the CBS first pick national broadcast. Berniedawg was right in saying the conference and network had a negotiated limit to the number of times a team can appear on CBS.

Unless something really crazy happens in the next two weeks, I'd think the Egg Bowl is your better pick either way, considering you will have the likely top team in the nation vs. their traditional rival and all that stuff. Still, it'll be the first time since Auburn rediscovered offense that the Iron Bowl won't be on CBS.

One other thing, we discussed how the Georgia Tech game would likely be a noon game on SECNetwork. When you look at the inventory of games the conference was going to broadcast, the conference really only has four games they control on that Saturday. With two match-ups between top ten teams, Georgia Tech-Georgia, and Tenn-Vandy, it isn't hard to see why we ended up with the sole noon conference game. For the record, I think Kentucky at Louisville will be a noon kickoff on ESPN2 or something like that through the ACCs package.
