Hear me out..

Could the up-coming SEC network bolster olympic sports in the South? If basketball, baseball, golf, gymnastics, soccer etc. are shown on TV...could it be possible that the viewers would grow from just friends and family of the players?

The SEC network is slated to increase SEC revenue by 50%. Could bolstered non-football support result in more filled seats at basketball games? soccer games?

At UGA, golf and the "Gymdawgs" is pretty popular. Swim and dive is also big here(as you all saw from our swim and dive harlem shake)

That may just be here though. In the South, golf and baseball are popular. B1G just added lax to their array which resulted in Johns Hopkins joining as an affiliate. Could the SEC Network play their cards right and popularize SEC sports?

Let's talk
