Default 8 or 9 Game SEC Schedule to be Decided in May

They will also review the permanent rivals issue in Destin this May.

Everything needs to be determined soon because of the SEC Network.

Quote:
The final decision, Mike Slive said, will be made by presidents and chancellors in concert with their athletic directors.
As previously mentioned, the permanent rivals are also being reviewed. However, the feeling now is that those rivals will remain in place.
LSU athletics director Joe Alleva said he believes only LSU, Texas A&M and South Carolina are in favor of making the permanent cross-division rivals more balanced. LSUs annual rival is Florida.
If Im at a school with a permanent opponent that I like and its easier than playing Alabama, LSU or Auburn, why would I want to change? said Alleva. You vote for your best interests, which is contrary to what this league usually does. Everybody is supposed to vote for the best interests of the league. I think well probably keep permanent opponents because nobody will have the guts to change it.

Default 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.

We played 11 BCS AQ teams this season and still won 11 games

I'm all for a 9 game conference schedule. I'd rather us play 9 conference games, Clemson and another BCS opponent than see another season with Furman and South Alabama together

Bama isn't going to give up UT rivalry, they could play as a nonconference game but that won't happen.

In the past they have been in favor of that but, that move would bring the need for two permanent opponents. As neither they or Bama will give up the Iron Bowl and Bama/UT won't change. So that would mean two permanent cross division rivals.

We want it. (Percieved) Weaker division, hopefully don't have to face LSU, Bama, and A&M every year. Our 4 main rivals were Bama, UGA, UTenn, and UF so we'd get renew our rivalries that were killed when we went to the west.

I wish that were true, because that is the way it should be but, alas, it will not unfortunately.

Attempting to be somewhat prophetic, I do believe that a nine game schedule sets up nicely for expansion to sixteen teams and divisional realignment at some point in the next decade or so.

Ideally we bring-in NC St and Va Tech, move Mizzou to the West, and call it quits on expansion for a century afterwards.

I wish it would stay at 14, move Auburn to the East and Mizzou to the West, and then we play a nine game schedule but Bama's B-ham will never let that happen.

I like the 8 game.

Plus, I'm in favor of us being assigned as a permanent opponent the team from the previous year that finished last in the West.

It makes more sense for Missouri to be in the west division and auburn to move to the east.

I may be wrong but Auburn is fairly close to the GA/AL state line.

Default Re: 8 or 9 Game SEC Schedule to be Decided in May

I certainly hope they keep the 8 game schedule. Odd number of games would be bad.

I believe non-division schedule should be determined like the NFL does based on last year's division standings. You play the the team with same division rank as you had the previous year and for 2nd game you play opponent close to your rank.

Game1:
E1-W1, E2-W2, E3-W3, E4-W4, E5-W5, E6-W6, E7-W7

Game2:
E1-W2, E2-W1, E3-W4, E4-W3, E5-W7, E6-W5, E7-W6

The matchups of the top teams between divisions should get great ratings.

Thoughts?

Yup only hour and a half drive to Atlanta. Vandy is further west than Auburn.

Hyman thinking about profit margin again.

Quote:
COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Texas A&M and UCLA have agreed to a home-and-home series in 2016 and 2017, the schools announced Thursday.

"We are very pleased this series was able to come together and provides our program with an exciting, premier non conference matchup against UCLA," Texas A&M athletic director Eric Hyman said in a statement.
In all seriousness, if the SEC goes to a nine game schedule, no FBS teams should be allowed to play FCS teams. With the Play-Offs lurking, that only seems fair.
