According to the TheBigLead.com’s sources, the SEC Network debuting next August is set to have a ‘College GameDay’-type show on Saturday mornings. And ESPN has targeted Rece Davis (Alabama graduate), Paul Finebaum and, wait for it, Tim Tebow as three hosts for the show while they search for another former SEC athlete to fill the fourth void.

Here’s a snippet from the report:
ESPN’s SEC Network, which debuts on August 21, 2014, is planning its own version of ‘College Gameday’ and has settled on three names: Rece Davis (an Alabama grad) would be the host, the voice of the South Paul Finebaum would play the role of Lee Corso, and Tebow would be the show’s Kirk Herbstreit. A source says ESPN is currently searching for another former SEC athlete to fill the final spot.
Tebow is said to be in negotiations with the SEC Network, Fox Sports and CBS Sports, and each are essentially willing to revolve or change current shows around the former Heisman-winning quarterback.
Will you still watch ESPN’s College GameDay, or would you watch SEC’s GameDay?
