    Any ideas when this game will be picked up by CBS, ESPN, or (please no) JP?

    The Georgia vs Tenn game should be a lock for the 2:30 CBS Game. ESPN gets 2nd pick and we have Arkansas vs Auburn and LSU vs UF. There are a few JP worthy games like Kentucky vs South Carolina. Bama play Southern Miss but I beleive JP has to pick an SEC vs SEC matchup before they can go out of conference.

    If Ark beats Bama it will be a tough choice for ESPN. So it would be in our best interests for Bama to win this weekend and for UF to beat Kentucky and Ole Miss. Not only does a Arky loss make it easier for us to be on ESPN it also gives us one up in the SEC Standings.

    ESPN has the Ohio St.-Wisconsin game already scheduled for 8:00 Central that night. I wonder if they would use a typical ESPN2 schedule and have a game at 4:30 before the 8:00 game. If not, we're looking at the Deuce or JP.

    Are ESPN games always national or some of them regional?

    The morning games (11:00) are sometimes on something called "ESPN Plus," but that is mostly for Big Ten games. I think the night games are all national only.

    i disagree...LSU could quite possibly be a top 5 team in the nation and florida could be top 15 to 20 if they keep winning

    that's a pretty damn good match-up if you ask me...

    with that being said, uga or ut would probably have to lose one game between them for CBS to pick us up

    either way, no way in hell does JP sports and Tiger fans deserve an 11:00am game

    Get ready for an 11:30am kick-off due to Florida not holding up their end of the bargain. Just tailgate after the win. :D

    What makes you think that? Florida is still in the top 25, albeit right at 25. However, you guys get Kentucky and Ole Miss the next two weeks before our game. I realize these arent gimmes, but they are games that UF should, and I think will, win. I realize 4-2 may not be a sexy record, but that would easily put UF in the top 20, or maybe even 15 if you get some help from other teams losing. That would be a decent matchup. I guess we'll see.
