The tragic event in Boston earlier today has shifted our collective focus to more pressing issues. Football, as with many other things at the moment, has taken a back seat.
In that same vein, ESPN and the SEC issued a joint statement today announcing that tomorrow’s press conference, presumably to unveil the new conference network, has been postponed:
In light of the tragedy in Boston today, we have decided to postpone Tuesday’s SEC/ESPN press conference in Atlanta. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of those affected by these horrible events.”
Certainly, we echo those sentiments: our thoughts and prayers go out to all affected, whether directly or indirectly.
