I'm not sure I'm understanding your point in all this. One person doesn't make the scheduling decisions all alone. The SEC schedule is on a systematic rotation where all the schools rotate. There's no one guy sitting in an office somewhere deciding that he wants his school to play an easier schedule. UF had Bama rotate into it's schedule 2010 and 2011. UGA had Bama rotate in 2007 and 2008 and then LSU in 2008 and 2009. UGA played both those teams in 2008. The rotation should be identical for every school. There is no difference between the way UF's schedule is set versus UGA or Bama or anyone else. The only difference is the cross division rival games - UF/LSU, Bama/UT, UGA/Auburn, Ole Miss/Vandy, MSU/UK, Arky/USC and TAMU/Mizzou. In 2014, they switch to Arky/Mizzou and USC/TAMU. Outside of those games, all the other teams rotate evenly. What happened is simply that when they went to 14-team, they started a new rotation and it just so happened that UF got paired Bama. That's it. Nothing more. No conspiracy. The same thing could happen again if/when the SEC goes to 16 teams.
