The network hired two former LSU All-Americans and first-round draft picks Booger McFarland and Marcus Spears as team studio analysts.

Spears played at LSU from 2001-04 and spent time with the Cowboys from 2005-12. He helped LSU win the 2003 BCS National Championship. McFarland played at LSU from 1995-98, and he played with the Bucs and Colts during his nine-year NFL career.

The SEC Network has hired Greg McElroy, Tim Tebow, Jesse Palmer, Brent Musburger and Joe Tessitore, among others, this offseason. The network will launch August 14th, and it’s already struck a deal with Dish Network to carry it.

  • boy isn’t this fantastic … DISH NETWORK?? are they intentionally trying to get no one to watch it? DISH is terrible. will they still broadcast big games on CBS ESPN etc?

    • Yes. CBS will still have primary Saturday selection. Dish is a huge provider, like them or not. DirecTV is the one everybody is keeping tabs on. They’re still under negotiation with the network.
