"It certainly strengthened us in television" is commissioner-speak for "Hey, you saw that very nice bump the Big 12 got in its post-expansion TV contract? We're going to make it look like the 47 cents in your Camry's ashtray."

With Slive expressing this kind of confidence, there's not really any lingering doubt any more: the SEC is going to announce a revamped television deal in the near future that's going to give the league the financial means to buy out, say, most medium-sized European countries. (We're just saying, if Slive is formally named "The Most Gentlemanly Vice-King of Norway, in absentia" during a visit to Oslo this summer, don't act surprised.)

OT: It's also good to sweep South Carolina in baseball as well, right? :cheers:

Back on topic, yep it did indeed. Pity too. I liked the way we had things. :(

" (Dakota) Prescott completed 58.4 percent of his passes in 2013, 11th among the 13 SEC quarterbacks with enough attempts to qualify. He threw 10 touchdowns to seven interceptions, a TD-to-INT ratio more on par with Arkansas' Brandon Allen (13-10) than Manziel. "  -Hugh Kellenburger
