SEC Coverage Not Up to Par...

In watching the conference basketball tournaments today I have realized that the SEC broadcast are simply not up to par. This begs the question when will we see "The SEC Network"? The Big Ten (plus one) made the jump in August of last year and I must say it is nothing short of excellent. The Big 10, ACC, Big East and Big 12 all have deals with ABC/ESPN and all have good HD coverage meanwhile the SEC gets one game a week on ESPN (Super Tuesday) and one on CBS-HD, other than that we are looking at Fox Sports, SportsSouth and Raycom, this combination combines poor broadcast quality with equally poor announcing. I pose the question to those SEC fans would you pay more for an all SEC network?
