With The SEC deal with ESPN and upcoming deal with the ACC along with controling the CFP and being allowed to hold the monopoly on airing the games, how is this not anti trust? Why do the other networks not get a chance to rotate the television of the playoff and championship games? This controls recruiting and gives the SEC and then the ACC an unfair advantage in recruiting. IMHO if ESPN is going to air the games they should have to give up rights to the SEC network. This is not good for the other 120 or so teams in College Football! How long before there is a court case?
