SEC Schools Nearing Completion Of "Bureau Rooms" For New Conference Network
Published August 1, 2014
COMING TO YOUR CITY: In Alabama, Matt Maddux notes the SEC Network's production team was on the Mercer Univ. campus earlier this week to "shoot the opening scenes" of "SEC Nation," the network's new traveling pregame show. Show producer Joe Disney said that he chose Mercer as the filming location because it "wouldn't have been fair had they gone to one of the conference's schools." The opening scenes will "feature Robert Randolph and the Family Band, one snare drummer from each schools' marching band and a host of fans representing each university" (HUNTSVILLE TIMES, 8/1).
