What Does Jefferson-Pilot Mean To You?

What do the words Jefferson-Pilot mean to you? Do they conjure up thoughts of taking your first drink at 6:30 in the morning so you'll be drunk by noon? Or do they remind you of getting up at 4:30 in the morning to make kickoff in Auburn at 11:30? Or maybe it reminds you of Dave Rowe, the worst color analysis in the history of college football.

Whatever thoughts you have about Jefferson-Pilot, my guess is they are mostly negative. There are no more dreaded words in all of the SEC than JP. The only thing worse than watching Auburn play on JP is having to watch Dave Neal and Dave Rowe call the Ole Miss - Vanderbilt game.

And if you are unfortunate like most of the state of Alabama then your local CBS affiliate carries the JP broadcast which means that when Auburn and LSU kickoff at 2:30 on September 16th chances are you'll still be watching Vanderbilt and Southern Illinois.

Last week it was announced that Jefferson-Pilot was dead. Gone. History. Then the other shoe dropped. Lincoln Financial has stepped in and taken the reigns from JP. Does it mean that Dave and Dave will still be around? I'm not sure. Does it mean that you'll be drinking Bud Light at Waffle House at 5:30 am? Unfortunately yes. Don't expect a whole lot to change except for the name at the top of the broadcast.

With that said, Clay Travis of CBS Sportsline writes a moving eulogy for Jefferson-Pilot and points out all the wonderful things we love to hate about our JP. Enjoy...

You failed to mention the ever important turn the tv down and listen to the Auburn radio broadcast. That is if the Aubrun broadcast isn't 10 seconds behind like it usually is.

I don't see the big deal about this sale. You have to remember that Jefferson-Pilot was a financial corporation first with the sports division as a subsidiary. With the exception of the name change, I don't think we will see any differences in the coverage. Although I could do without the Western Kentucky-Georgia opener.

You're an idiot. The JP game was never "dead" or "[g]one" = just replaced by a different sponsor. Did you actually think otherwise?

Apparently Dave Rowe is still alive & well.

To anonymous... No your the idiot. Obviously you can't pick up on a joke. Who was that clown?

JP meant crappy games, crappy announcers, and even crappier graphics. But I would trade it for anything else in the world. Where else can you see just about every Yellawood commercial ever made?

Hopefully, Lincoln Financial will not try to snazz up the broadcast. Of course, once they realized that the three Dave's were going to be involved they probably figured why try to do too much.
