    Not as much as you would think, actually. The networks sell packages by the season, not by the game. Most advertisers want a highly-focused slate of big games, so a longer schedule with more games becomes tougher to sell. Spring Training has always been a money loser for the regional networks...

    How did Jennifer Azzi get away from Pat ?

    She let it be known early in the process that she wanted to leave town and Pat respected that. It was pretty much that simple.

    ESPN+ (the $5.99/month subscription service) does not have rights to SEC games, meaning those that originate on SEC campuses, at this time. SECN+, which is the online component of the SEC Network and included with your cable system, carries games when the host school is able to produce them...

    All of the games that will be televised on linear networks (ESPN, ESPNU, SEC Network) have been announced and are listed on the schedule. The remaining home games will be streamed on SECN+, some with a full broadcast like you saw this past weekend and some with a two-camera feed with my audio on...

    I was just reading her stats and observing how much her ball moves. She was good, 12th in the country in strikeouts last year. The player that beat us the other day was 5th last year and was better overall, but the girl today was good. I don't see many teams in either conference having good days...

    I do not. I created an account here a couple of years ago when I discovered on Twitter that people believed I was posting here under another name. It turns out I do know the person that posts under that name very well, but I am not that person. I have accounts here, at 247 and Volquest under...

    Thanks, I've always enjoyed doing the games!

    Basilio brought me back

    I can't speak for the rest of my fellow "State run" hosts, but I think the general consensus on Pruitt before the investigation was that he was getting another year, not that he deserved another year. Those are not the same thing. I don't think you ever heard an impassioned defense of him from...

    Here's what I don't understand. Why some people come to this site and other with literally nothing positive to say. When the team loses, it's time to fire everybody and start over. When they win, it's only because the other team sucks. When they do things like take 2/3 against Florida and...

    Just paid to broadcast the games, nothing else. And it's certainly not enough money to say something I don't believe.

    ...that led its conference in ERA and shutouts last year. This isn't cable news, you can't just make things up.

    EKU returns everyone from a 22-2 season in 2020 and have won their last 18 games. I certainly would like a blowout, but after finishing up my prep for tomorrow's broadcast, I'm expecting a couple of close games.

    "Poor scheduling." Like the tournament where UT was supposed to face multiple top 25 teams being cancelled? Like the games in Myrtle Beach being rained out? I guess it was "poor scheduling" for Alabama's tournament in Austin, Texas being snowed out. Waiting for you to criticize Alabama for...

    The SEC didn't allow broadcasters to travel for basketball, visiting radio crews had to call games off of monitors at home. Because video feeds can't be guaranteed for every game in baseball and softball, they are allowing us to travel, but broadcasters have to travel separately from the team...

    Possible they stream the game against Coastal Carolina, but not the other games. Unfortunately, due to their COVID space restrictions, CCU isn't currently going to allow us to do a radio broadcast of the games there. We should have every other game with free audio.
