Rumors about the development on an "SEC Network" are becoming more concrete as The Sports Business Journal reports than plans are on schedule for a summer 2014 launch. The report also states that ESPN Regional TV, ESPN's separate production house in Charlotte that currently produces most of ESPNU's studio shows, olympic sports broadcasts (including the national SEC Baseball package), and most importantly the "SEC Network" game of the week (the spiritual successor to Jefferson Pilot Sports), will likely be used to produce and house the network. The upshot of all this is that the SEC Network will essentially be in the "Longhorn Network" mold (ESPN produced and stylized) and that Dave Neal and other personalities that SEC fans have grown accustomed to over the years will likely become the main anchors of the content.
