The thing holding up changes to the permanent rivals are Bama/UT and Auburn/UGA as neither wants to give up playing the other every year.As long as Bama objects it is not going to change. A solution could be to let those four keep the permanent rival and let everyone else have rotating opponents. Not a perfect solution but certainly something to consider!

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.

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

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?

I don't want a 9 game SEC schedule because I like being able to play a good out of conference team every year besides Clemson. If we go to a 9 game SEC schedule, then the other 2 games will always be "gimmes".

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

On the brightside if you win that schedule it looks better.

9 conference games will ruin out of conference scheduling for most schools.

Why are you still here? Yes, Mizzou, SC, UGA Stacks up just as well as Bama, LSU, And A&M. I love how you threw in A&M seeing how they had a Heisman Trophy winning QB for the last two years. Before that they were mediocre at best.

Yes they stack up, that's why the past 5 SEC Champs have come from the West. The SEC has been weighted to the West for a while.

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

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

The 9 game schedule is being driven by the new playoff system in which SOS is taken into account.

The SEC can stay at 8 games if they play a good ooc schedule and try to reach a balance with the other teams.

IMO, this is an area where the Commissioner needs to step in and squelch teams like Alabama taking advantage of their extra game (due to conference rivalry game) and direct it to accept a home and home game with one of the other big power conferences, i.e., PAC12, Big10, ACC, or Big12.

Alternatively, the conference could force those schools with extra games to play one of the showcase games on a neutral field.

The 9 game schedule is cumbersome because of the 4/5 home/away factor. Someone by luck of the draw will be penalized by having to play an extra road conference game.

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

9 games isn't necessary to compete for the playoffs for us because we don't play a weak schedule. If we take care of our business, 8 sec games and Clemson should be more than enough to get us in. Especially when you consider our tendency to schedule UNC and the like.

I think Auburn to the East would be a lot of fun. I would love to play them every year.

For season ticket holders, prices will probably go up with a 9 game schedule.

Well half the teams would play 1 more home game. Set it up and it alternates every year.

Or set-up games on Neutral Fields. Like the UGA / FLa Cocktail Party.
