For college football fans, Thursday’s launch of the SEC Network is a big deal. But we’re not quite sure it ranks up there as one of the top moments in the entire “history of television.” Someone does however, and decided to go in and update the associated Wikipedia entry. SEC fans are proving that yet again, they are in a class of their own.

Here’s the entry, for those who can’t view the tweet.
On August 14, 2014, the SEC Network was launched, revolutionizing American television. The news show “SEC Now” set the network in motion, broadcast live from all 14 SEC campuses into around 90 million homes. The SEC network and its accompanying digital platform, a collaboration between the SEC and ESPN, carries SEC content 24 hours per day.
No, this probably won’t stay up very long, considering this is ESPN’s eighth channel and it won’t contain any groundbreaking new type of content. But it’s still amusing.
