    It's only funny if it keeps them out of the championship game.

    and yet our schedule still manages to be ranked around the top 10 nearly every year. Hmmm....

    And our schedule gets even harder next season as we replace Arkansas with a trip to Alabama. How about Florida State's schedule next season?????

    It usually is, but not always. According to CFB stats (just one source, I know), it was outside the top ten in:

    Florida----------------------------------Florida State

    Year----------Ranking-------------Year--------------Ranking

    2011.......................22d................2012.....................63d
    2010.......................23d................2011.....................57th
    2009.......................15th...............2008.....................38th
    2005.......................33d................2007.....................24th
    2004.......................46th...............2006.....................32d
    2001.......................19th...............2005.....................19th
    1998.......................46th...............2004.....................29th
    1996.......................17th...............1999.....................13th
    1995.......................16th...............1996.....................13th
    1994.......................12th...............1995.....................45th
    1993.......................25th...............1993.....................21st
    1990.......................64th...............1992.....................12th
    1989.......................30th...............1991.....................22d
    1988.......................44th...............1990.....................48th
    1981.......................24th...............1988.....................24th
    1978.......................14th...............1987.....................20th

    Sagarin and other sites track similarly. Here are some other SEC teams since 2000, plus FSU:

    School-------------Average SOS

    Florida.............................14th
    Arkansas.........................20th
    USCe...............................21st
    Tennessee......................22d
    Auburn............................24th
    Alabama..........................24th
    Georgia...........................25th
    Florida State...................25th
    Texas A&M......................26th
    LSU.................................27th
    Miss State.......................31st
    Kentucky.........................32d
    Vandy..............................34th
    Ole Miss..........................35th
    Mizzou............................35th

    As you can see, Florida not only has a tougher SOS than FSU, it has a tougher SOS than ANYONE ELSE in the SEC, and FSU's would be in the middle of the pack of the SEC.

    for 1 they don't play in the SEC so it's really hard to compare their in conference games, clearly we play harder conference games we are in the SEC. But to answer your question they play Oklahoma State, The Citadel, Florida, and Notre Dame as there "non-conference games" not sure ND still counts as non conference to them.

    Analyzing strength of schedule can be confusing. Some rankings are preseason. Some are week-to-week, reflecting updated changes over the entire season. Here are a couple of other strength of schedule rankings to add to the confusion:

    CONGROVE
    Florida - 8
    Alabama - 57
    Oregon - 42
    FSU - 78

    GBE
    Florida - 5
    Alabama - 76
    Oregon - 107
    FSU - 49

    PHIL STEELE's preseason SOS rankings
    1. Florida
    40. Alabama
    58. Oregon
    64. FSU

    The only one that matters is the BCS SOS calculation .. updated weekly
    Alabama - 55
    Oregon - 63
    FSU - 33.8

    Ahh yes, the classic "We're looking past the Noles for the SECCG. After all, that is for a ring" justification...
