DirecTV Sends Emails Saying They Will Not Carry SEC Network, SEC Fans Aren't Happy

The SEC is the latest conference to launch its own network, and many expect it to be quite successful due to the diehard fans of the league's member schools. The network took a blow today, however, when DirecTV began to email customers saying that they would not carry it.

">@SECNetwork that they "have no current plans to carry the SEC Network." Be forewarned.

Clay Travis' second tweet is already coming true, as SEC fans have taken to Twitter to complain to DirecTV. It's not pretty out there.
