what the hell y'all thinking. Even as a bammer I won't not part of Oregon right now if I didn't have to
When Tennessee gets good again it'll make everyone else's schedule even harder cause then the East will have 4 great teams + Vandy being decent all of a sudden, making it harder for West teams to dodge one of the big dogs, and also nearly impossible for an East team to go through a season undefeated.
Agreed. Why does the SEC need to follow anything that other conferences are doing? Their plan seems to be working just fine. Other conferences act like they have been doing this forever or something. They have only recently got on the conference championship game boat.
well you can play us at a neutral site or visit our place.
Why the hell would we? We already lead the league in SOS each year. All this would do would be making it harder for a few teams to make bowl games, thus, reducing overall revenue sharing to the conference
$50 bet with Rebels10 - Best of 3 Egg Bowls
**the $50 goes to others schools athletics dept**
Yeah but when Tennessee becomes a power again there's gonna be some compensation in the league. 1 possibly 2 of the teams you listed will be down

Because that's stupid.
Tenn is historically the 2nd strongest program in the SEC? They haven't been in 15 years.
It's got more to do with home games. If you play 9 conf games there will be years you only get 4 at home. No one wants that. If you go to 10 conf games 5 home 5 away then your 2 non conf games have to be against turds because they have to be home games. Every Team has to have 7 home games minimum for revenue. You can't play a home and home with another BCS conf school, it doesn't give you 7 home games
The B1G is going through the same debate now and the one thing I've learned is what the fans want gets zero consideration and will have zero effect on how things are done. It's all about the $$$$.
Out of the last five years bama has only played 8 home games once. All have been the kickoff games and one time at penn st. Just sayin
15 years? They made trips to SEC championship game in 1999, 2001, 2004, and 2007.... Yeah the last 5 years have been tuff since Fulmer got fired, but they were not completely off the map before then....
its comes in cycles. 2001 to 2007 were dark times for bammer
Glad to see when the enemy understands the whole cycle thing. +1 to you sir
Well it's true. You can't be good and win them all every year. I'm just trying to enjoy this run bama is on.those down years made appreciate being a fan right now. Dont worry when it's over my bama brethren will go back to talking bout the past again
We play a tougher schedule than you almost every year, so I don't care at all if we go to 9 SEC games or not. It's not about "man up" or not, it's about making sure we don't make it so tough that we cannibalize ourselves and it keeps us out of the NC game, or BCS bowls etc. JMO.
Winningest Program in College Football since 1990!
We move to a 9 game schedule, that moves Auburn to the east and Missouri out west. That way Bama and Auburn and Bama and Tennessee play every year. You play 3 from each division.
I wouldn't necessarily like that. That means we'd only have one rotating opponent. Although I'd rather be able to keep Auburn, Tennessee, LSU, and A&M (because those are the only four games that matter to me) than to lose one or more but get more rotating games.

no no no. you bastards dont get to move east without us. you're just gonna have to get use to driving to texas, arkansas, and missouri too
I can see auburn, Tennessee, and Lsu but why does A&M matter to you? Because A&M beat Bama last year? If Bama blows them out this year then would it still be important to you?
you have lsu way too high. they were a homecoming game before the early 2000's. the top three without a doubt and in order would be
not sure how i would rank the rest really. maybe auburn then georgia. idk
Born and raised in Texas. Moving back there once I graduate in May. It'll be an easy away game for me to travel to every other year. Plus I'll have alot of Aggies at work so it'll be a fun rivalry. Aside from those selfish reasons, I actually think the game has the potential to develop into a good one. So the short answer is it goes far beyond getting revenge for this year.
you are probably right. i didnt really become a big time football fan till 2002. i was 14 then
It hurts conferences more than it helps them. Look at the PAC-12.
Adding more losses is more significant than adding more wins. One or two losses can kill the MNC chances of a team, even if they have 10 or 11 wins.
