OK! I think I ask this last year game, but for this guy. What would be the best pregame show to watch? These are the channels I know I will be getting in the room. ESPN,ESPN2, Sport South, SEC Network, and the other SEC Network. But when the game is on I will only be watching The Game.

@rick4bama, I"ll end up flipping back and forth. GameDay at 3 is a definite. SEC Nation at 6 is as well. I'll likely jump over to ESPN 2 when PTI is on.

I'm hoping they record new episodes of some of the podcast Monday morning. JPW is on Dari and Mel this morning. That's probably a pretty good listen. It's already available.

I'm assuming you have a ESPN account, right? Those are free.

Anybody know a good place to watch the game in Biloxi? I’ve been here for a couple of years, but don’t get out much because work is so busy. I think it would be fun to watch with a bunch of people.

They haven't updated the calendar in 7 years, but might be worth a try to reach out to them.
