I think the SEC eventually will. Helps that they are getting their own network.

Agreed. It's the best / easiest way to get the TV contracts to go up more. Too many possible great matchups are not played each year. UGA-Bama, A&M, USC-Bama, LSU, A&M, UF-Auburn, Bama, A&M are just some examples of games that would vie for the CBS slot, or the number 1 ESPN slot and are not being played this year. (Maybe not UF-Auburn, depending on who Auburn bought this year)

It would make the TV ratings skyrocket, along with the money that the SEC is compensated with, but playing just UF, UGA, and the wildcard of two teams from the west is already troubling. There are about 8 or 9 teams in the SEC that on a good day could beat anyone in the country, and that is really scary

I think the SEC will hold off going to 9 conference games until they expand to 16 teams... Which might happen within a couple of years.

Big 10 is only doing this to help their SOS out. They don't understand that if they all suck it doesn't help any.

Which is why the ACC didn't go to 9 games.


More matchups like Duke-Wake, UNC-Syracuse, Pitt-NCSU, BC-GT, Lousiville-UVA,...seriously....I could go on all day..you get the point...more bad games won't help the TV contracts.
