14 for '14: Another Slate Tries to Challenge Bama

+

The Crimson Tide's slate doesn't look like it will challenge the team all that much, but some of that might just because Alabama is Alabama

14 for '14: The Dawgs Face a Long Road This Season

4

The Bulldogs face a rough road trip in the middle of the schedule that could open the door for an upset or two

14 for '14: S.C. Watches Its First and Last Steps

+

The beginning and the end of the Gamecocks' season is probably going to determine just how far they go in 2014

Missouri Faulted in OTL Story on Sexual Assault

+

Warning: Some of the details in this story are disturbing. It deals with incidents involving Derrick Washington when Missouri was still in the Big 12. Missouri Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin says the university has already "instituted sweeping changes" to how it handles these cases.

14 for '14: LSU's Inexperience vs. Miles' Record

11

The Tigers head coach has made a habit of stringing together 10-win seasons, no matter what you think of him and no matter the odds. Why should this year be any different?

14 for '14: Florida Is Unpredictably Predictable

5

The Gators have a lot of reasons that they could be volatile, but the schedule could ensure a small range of possibilities

AP Poll: The SEC Will Be Really, Really Good Again

4

Eight conference teams are in the final rankings, and a ninth wasn't that far from making it. That's a bit friendlier than the coaches poll, which was also heavy on SEC teams

14 for '14: LSU Loses Talent to the Draft. Again

2

For the second straight season, the Tigers are facing questions about whether they can overcome seeing several of their best players head to the pros

14 for '14: Florida's Roster Is Healthy. For Now

3

There were more than enough injuries for Florida last season. There's a lot of talent coming back this year, presuming that the top-notch players can stay on the field

TSK Replay: The First Night of the SEC Network

31

A look back at the initial outing of the conference's channel: A three-hour showing of its flagship 'SEC Now' series

Live-Tweeting the SEC Network Launch

CFB Playoff Rules Are Good, Should Be Better

7

The 'protocols' leave a lot to be desired, but there is at least one that should provide some of the transparency that was promised

14 for '14: Florida on Schedule This Season

1

There's nothing too out-of-the-ordinary in the Gators' slate this season, with the possible exception of the importance of the results to the head coach

The New SI College Football Regional Preview Cover Goes To ...

+

Alabama. Don't even pretend you thought it was going to anyone else.

14 for '14: From a Homestand to a Taxing November

17

The Tigers don't get a bye until November -- but, then again, they might not need one

SEC Network Releases Details About First-Day Programming

+

Looks like it will have a lot of good stuff and a few of the mainstays of ESPN programming. ("Auburn offensive lineman Shon Coleman was sidelined in 2011 and 2012 while fighting leukemia. Coleman returned last September and is battling for the starting left tackle position vacated by Greg Robinson, the No. 2 overall pick in last year's NFL Draft." Cue soft-focus lenses.) Plus, there will be reports from all 14 SEC campuses -- including Rece Davis from Auburn. Yes, Rece Davis, Alabama alum and one of the only people who can troll and entertain at the same time, will be on air live from the Greater Opelika Metropolitan Area. That is appointment viewing, ladies and gentlemen. We'll also get to see how much Will Muschamp screams during a walkthrough. Good times.

14 for '14: Missouri Sets a Baseline Number

7

The Tigers missed a bowl after their first season in the SEC and then won a division in their second. What happens now?

14 for '14: Mississippi State and Expectations

3

There are reasonable objections to projecting the Bulldogs to have a very good season this year. Here are some attempted answers

14 for '14: Missouri Needs a Youth Movement

+

In an SEC East race that's defined by roster turnover, the Tigers might be losing more than anyone else

14 for '14: Mississippi State Returns This Year

+

The Bulldogs have one of the most experienced rosters in the conference this year. Can that help them give Dan Mullen his most successful season yet?

The O'Bannon Case Ruling Is Quite Reasonable

6

You don't have to think that college athletes should be millionaires before they graduate to agree with Wilken's thoughtful decision

ACC, Maryland Reach Exit Fee Agreement

1

The ACC and Maryland have reached an agreement in their battle over the conference's exit fee, one of the things meant to hold the league together after the Era of Conference Realignment. Essentially, the conference gets to keep almost $31.4 million that it's already withheld from Maryland, but the Terps don't have to shell out an additional $20 million to escape to the Big Ten. The benefit for both sides is that they avoid going to court, where they could lose -- something that could destabilize the ACC if the conference lost and had to lower its exit fee (or were forced to vote on the exit fee all over again). The chances that the ACC would break apart without the exit fee was relatively small, but now those chances are practically zero. Again, the Great Conference Realignment is over.

14 for '14: Mississippi State Eases Into Things

+

There are some easy games early and enough likely victories for a bowl berth. But the Bulldogs are probably aiming for a bit more than that this year

14 for '14: Missouri Has to Watch Its First Step

2

Mizzou should know before anyone goes trick-or-treating whether a second consecutive trip to Atlanta is even a realistic possibility

SEC Network School Graphics Released

3

Sort of like the U's on ESPNU. Only not

Charter Reaches Agreement to Carry SEC Network

+

Charter Communications has signed a deal with the SEC Network now, leaving Verizon FiOS as essentially the only even somewhat major carrier without the conference channel. We're now at 91 million homes and counting for the SEC Network, with all of the deals calling for the channel to be live at launch. (Even if there are other questions about some of the services included.)

14 for '14: Ole Miss Rebels vs. the SEC West

117

If the Rebels were in the SEC East, it might be time to start thinking about Atlanta. Alas, they're not

14 for '14: Tennessee's 'Bump' Gets Canceled Out

1

The Volunteers have a chance to make a run for the postseason. But their schedule makes that harder than it otherwise would be

SEC Gets DirecTV

1

The conference's channel will now be available in 87 million homes, likely the largest first-day reach of any of the college networks to launch so far

SEC, DirecTV Reach Agreement; Provider Will Have Network on Launch Date

1

So there you have it. Every major provider will have the SEC Network when it launches this month. That's something that both the Big Ten Network and Pac-12 Networks failed to do when they got off the ground. Despite those who thought it wouldn't go well, Mike Slive and Co. have shown once again that at least when it comes to business acumen, the SEC is still the tops in the country. More to come very shortly.
