Re: 8 or 9 Game SEC Schedule to be Decided in May
Spurrier has noted several times how almost all the schools who want to play 9 conference games have their rivalry game already in the conference. Love or hate them, CU is a good team, so moving to a 9-game conference schedule punishes schools like us, UF, UGA (when GT isn't terrible), and UK. Schools like Alabama, Auburn, MSU, Ole Miss, LSU, and Arkansas wouldn't mind as much. Even UT plays Alabama and VU as their rivalry games.
In other words, if we go to a 9-game conference schedule, then there should be a rule that makes the teams whose arch rivals are in the SEC have to play a school from another BCS conference every year. Of course, even if that were to happen, schools like Indiana, Purdue, Wake Forest, and similar schools would have several suitors.
