CFN.com's preseaon strength of schedule report Scratching my head big time over the fact that the SEC is severely penalized in this process. My initial guess is that, because they beat the crap out of one another for 8 games a year, most SEC teams go very soft in at least 1, if not more, of the remaining non-conference games (e.g., Ga. Southern, La. Monroe, W. Carolina, Middle Tenn. St, Eastern Kentucky). Add to this the fact that these games are played at home and, using CFN's scoring, the SoS soars---enough to offset the fact that the conference schedule is absolutely murderous. This theory seems to be borne out by the fact that the SEC ranks only fifth (!) in SoS. The SEC is not merely behind the Pac-10, they're three spots behind on the list. Yes, this is just a preseason list, based on preseason rankings, but does anybody *really* think that, top to bottom, SEC teams facing one another have an easier time than Pac-10 teams facing off? Fifth!
