raycom.jpg In a tidbit of news that will shake up the SEC for years to come, ESPN announced that it has purchased the rights to all SEC broadcasts not already taken by CBS. What does that mean? It means Raycom sports is gone and now ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU will house all SEC football outside of the games on CBS. As for basketball, it will set a regional network that will provide syndication to local channels, similar to the way Raycom does it.
