Looking back to 1994, SC hasn't played outside the South. Ouch.

Is that supposed to be an insult?

Like I said earlier, USC has traditional rivalries with schools in the SE, therefore don't have to travel far.

No point in scheduling a silly game in Kansas.

Auburn has traditional rivalries with GT, FSU and Clemson, but we've also played at Syracuse, So. Cal., and now Kansas ST.

Someone's team schedules an "out of the south" game for the first time in over a decade, and now it's a point to brag about?

Traditional rivalry with Clemson? BS. You played them from 2010-2012. Excluding bowl games, Auburn hadn't played Clemson in the regular season since 1971.

Before the national championship game last year, you hadn't played Florida State since 1990.

And you've only played GT twice since 1987.

You want to try this again, please?

Go back and look at how many times we've played GT and FSU. The SEC expansion killed off the rivalries. We used to have wreck tech parade back in the day.

.....really? You sound like a Clemson fan. How is a history of playing a lot back in the 70's and before in any way relevant to a discussion of who schedules tough games today? You criticized South Carolina for not scheduling outside the south. It was pointed out to you that we regularly play a tough opponent inside the south (Clemson) that bolsters our schedule and thus we don't need to go outside the south to schedule a tough OOC schedule. Your retort was "and Auburn doesn't?" which you followed up by naming those 3 schools. Your point was clearly to infer that Auburn is superior because it goes outside the south and plays against tough OOC competition in the south - except it doesn't and hasn't in decades.

We used to play North Carolina, NC State, and Duke a lot. We have a lot of games against Virginia and Maryland as well. Can add Wake to that list.

So do we have a historical rivalry with these schools? I'd say yes, particularly the NC schools, though we haven't played them that much since starting SEC play.

I'll take the Auburn fan's word on who Auburn's historical rivals are, though to my knowledge of football history, I don't think Auburn and Clemson ever played much. Certainly not as much as Georgia and Clemson played.

I will say, Clemson/Auburn makes sense as a rivalry, at least geographically. But they don't seem like they have ever played very much.

The SEC only had a five game conference schedule for years, then it went to six (50's?), then to 7 in the 70's. Stayed at 7 till 92.

Seems kind of funny Clemson and Auburn never played more. Heck I bet Clemson is closer than FSU to Auburn. Though come to think of it, we aren't really that far from Auburn. Think LSU series has long roots with them, and I'd wager we are closer than LSU is to Auburn, Alabama. Heck Auburn probably still has more games played against Sewanee and Tulane than either us or Clemson.

Clemson called it off, we won like 12 straight against them.

We've been playing LSU for over 100 years, but only in spurts. The rivalry didn't ignite until 1999. We just destroyed them on Tommy Tuberville's birthday.

SEC wise our historic rivals have been Bama, UGA, UF and UTenn.

We've played GT 92 times.

FL has 3 cupcakes but also SEC West opponents LSU and Bama. SC has 3 cupcakes too. I know it is fun to bash taters, but we have been helping your strength of schedule by losing but still being ranked top 10-15. Not sure about this year, as we could have more than 2 losses (even with more cupcakes than FL and SC combined).

Who out of the south is worth playing? Wisconsin, Nebraska, Michigan? I think the greatest competition is in the south so unless you are just scheduling easy games why look outside the south?
