Default Some SEC Teams Might Drop FCS Opponents

Quote:
Were probably going to move forward without playing FCS opponents, Muschamp said.

The first people that need to be taken into consideration here, who get no consideration, are the fans and the people who support the programs -- the quality of games for them -- so they want to come to the stadium and come to the games and support the programs and make it exciting for the players, Alabama coach Nick Saban said Tuesday. No, we do not want to play those types of teams. Sometimes we dont have a choice.

Earlier this month, Saban talked about the idea of the teams in the power five conferences (SEC, Big 12, Big Ten, ACC and Pac-12) playing only one another. His idea was spot on, and it's one that could help the SEC lose its FCS partners.
Quote:
SEC commissioner Mike Slive said that discussions of FCS opponents didn't come up in Tuesday's meetings and that the decision to play them would be institutional.

Im in favor of our strength of schedule being as good as it can be," Slive said.

We have not told our schools that they cant play FCS schools and we dont have any plans to tell them that.
