Ever notice how everyone at ESPN is an SEC cheerleader? Ever wonder why that is? Well let me explain in word and image. ESPN makes money when people turn on their station. People turn on their station when they are showing something people want to see. So ESPN wants to show what most people want to see. And when it comes to college football, a large region of the country shuts down on Saturdays: the South. Why do you think ESPN wants an SEC team in the title game every year? That’s what gets the most ratings. Except if it is between two SEC teams who already played it seems, since this was the lowest rated BCS title game ever. But to explain this in easy to understand terms, I took the liberty of revising the SEC logo to appear how the folks at ESPN see it.
If that doesn’t explain it, nothing will.
