Someone in SEC land is drinking the kool aid. This author is claiming that the SEC will eventually add a VA and NC team. With all the cable subscriptions from the markets they will have, their SEC network will bring in $83 mllion/team/yr in addition to their projected $27 mil from tier 1 and part of tier 2. That is $110 million/team/yr.

Here would be my question: If the B10 network currently brings in only $7 million/team/yr and the biggest cash cow of Texas brings in $15 million/team/yr on a network they don't have to share, how in the world are you getting $83 million/team/yr for an SEC network?
At one point, he claims that if Mizzou and A&M were to start a network, just those two would create a network that would generate $57 million/team/yr just for themselves.
