SEC on ABC logo finally revealed

It’s a new day in the South with the beloved SEC officially moving to ABC and ESPN.

To the dismay of many and joy of some, the era of SEC on CBS every Saturday afternoon is officially over with the television deal having expired.

The official logo was revealed for the SEC on ABC and has received a lot of feedback online, most of it negative.

Some of the reactions were positive with users commenting on the sleekness of the design:

But the majority of users were against it due to nostalgia surrounding the CBS logo and broadcast that fans had become so accustomed to over the years:

No matter how fans feel about it, change is inevitable especially when it comes to television rights surrounding the most lucrative league in college sports.

While it surely will take some getting used to, fans will likely eventually warm up to the SEC on ABC as soon as the players step onto the field and football season is back.

Of course, the music selection will also be critical with the SEC on CBS theme becoming arguably the most iconic sports television song of all time.

The ball in in ABC’s court, and hopefully the network realizes the gravity of what it has just taken on.
