    According to this article, there are some schools that should be embarrassed. #1? Florida. They open with Miami but then have UT Martin and Towson at home in September, and end with Fl St in November. After Florida; Baylor, Ahia State, Bama, Arkansas, Wazzu, T-Tech, Eastern Michigan.

    Maybe some schools get a pass but SEC teams like Florida and Bama need to be held to a higher standard.

    FU never leaves their state reg season. The gumps always get a pass. This is known Khaleesi.

    I’d be inclined to say having Miami and FSU as two OOC games, along with LSU and Georgia in the same year, would make it okay to have two cupcakes. Certainly, no one wants to see more than two of those shit games and they’re better for warmup/season openers- not well into the season but I understand the essential bye week they serve.

    SEC fans are getting screwed for the sake of an easier schedule, if you played 9 conference games a year, you guys would love it

    I hear ya but you know how we answer that, right? ”To balance out the rest...” :eek:

    This is exactly the debate that dam women is setting the trap for too so get ready.

    I don't know how early the non-conference games were arranged but going into next year, based off of season-end last year, Miami and FSU are verging on cupcake status.
    Shut up. I'm not setting up anything. I was trying to generate football conversation around hating on the gators and perhaps the gumps. But don't let that stop your theorizing.

    the rest of the country sees that as a weak excuse, I see it as SEC self protection,.. most of the SEC already has a reputation for being afraid to leave home for ooc games. I've seen that change over the years some, bama (I think) and LSU aren't afraid to travel, Ducks played home/away vs Tennessee.

    Georgia and aTm backed out of their home/away deals with Oregon, pussies.
    Auburn will travel to JerryWorld but not to the west coast. Going to an 8 game playoff would eliminate the fear of playing tough ooc opponents

    The rest of the country sees many SEC National Championships, too.

    You’re right about SEC teams being reluctant to travel. Even our respectful neutral site games are not the same as home and aways.

    Here we go.


    I hope y’all don’t get as deep as the, “Traveling west to east is harder than east to west.” (It is, you know).
