CBS will no longer broadcast the SEC game of the week

after the 2023 season. The contract was up for bid and CBS dropped out when it hit $300 million per season. CBS had been paying $55 mil per season. 

ESPN/ABC will be the sole source of SEC football. 

I could not believe $300 mil a season. I wonder how much more each school will get that is in the top game of the week.

    Seriously? The money is divided equally between each of the 14 skools. That is pretty simple math. 

    This is great news. Gary Danielson was almost impossible to listen to.

    I just read each school is getting $20 mil more. I would have thought the schools that play in the game of the week would get more. But if my math is right, you are correct. I never knew it was just an even split. 

    I  guess coaches salaries can go up even more now. 

    A lot of comments where I read the story were all about how nice it would be not to listen to Danielson. I agree, he was hard to listen to. 

    I thought Fox was supposed to put in a bid, but I guess ESPN wanted it more

    Not that I go to many games anymore, but it always bothered me when the networks dictate what time teams play, like noon in September. Or October. Or any month. Tailgating at 9am is a drag. In a perfect world all games would be night. So much more fun.
