SEC NETWORK KENTUCKY BIAS
« on: September 28, 2017, 11:45:35 am »

Once again the SECN  will air all preseason basketball activities for Kentucky.  While not airing any of the other teams preseason games.  with the SEC main channel an alt. channel
and SEC+ they could easily broadcast every team's.  imagine recruiting a kid and telling them even 4 of you practices will be on tv for the NBA scouts to watch, only Kentucky can say that.  I know people will say it is because of ratings, but airing Big Blue Madness and the Blue/White game is just laughable. :puke:

They air games that people watch.  You call it bias; they call it ratings.

I usually get kind of upset when I hear about how biased ESPN or SEC network is and how much they hate Arkansas or about how much they love the bluebloods like UK, but even I can admit that I think this is a completely unfair advantage for airing their practices and always bringing Coach Calipari up on set.  The rich get richer.

I doubt it, while we have seen the likes of Auburn, Louisville, USC, etc., they are not huge fish in the College basketball world like Kentucky, Duke, North Carolina.  Sure, Louisville has won big in the past but they are not as big as the 3 I just mentioned, and I don't think we will ever see any of those 3 implicated either.

If it were the NCAA doing the investigating, I would agree. However, the FBI and probably eventually the IRS ain't playing.
