    Felipe Franks against our defense. And who the coaches know quite well. And then Trask and running backs against Arky's defense.

    I am not sure Vegas would pick up that one.

    We go undefeated and they will call off the bowl season because there were no inter conference games. No championship game.

    If they want to make it fair, which we know they don't, They would break the teams into tiers of quality and then make sure no team has more of one tier than another:
    Tier 1 - Bama, UGAG, UF, LSU
    Tier 2 - Auburn, A&M, Tenn, SCar
    Tier 3 - Ole Miss, Miss St., Kentucky, Missou
    Who Cares Tier: Arky, Vandy.

    Balance out all of that for your 10 games and go from there.

    So is this confirmed? TAMU and Alabama? If not, can we change the thread title?

    Here's a solution. Only make the games against your own division count for determining the division winners. Then while adding Bama and TAM would certainly make winning a NC much more difficult, it wouldn't have any direct effect on winning the East... just beat them leghumpers.

    I’m in 100%agreement the league will try to screw UF, but when comparing schedules we need to look at the entire schedule rather than who UF or UGA added.

    Why the he77 would we do that? Isn’t it more fun to complain about this conspiracy?

    All kidding aside, I really can’t see the logic of dropping south bama for bama and New Mexico for tAm all in the name of safety? Not much different.

    I know right! Get rid of the game that's a 3 hour bus drive away to add a road game in Alabama or Texas. Remember that when they talk about 'player safety'.

    This ten game SEC schedule is dumb. Just play our usual 8 game SEC schedule and keep FSU.

    A nine game season would be just fine given the corona virus, and FSU is in late November when things may have significantly improved.

    I dont know why replacing fsu with Tex AM reduces the risk of the China virus. Or playing Bama reduces the risk. Makes little sense.

    Where is the data to prove that teams in same conference have a lower China virus infection than out-of-conference teams? There is none.

    The result of these schedule changes will just hammer, maybe bankrupt and put out of business, many well known name smaller sized programs. For example, usf loses money each and every year in football and "borrows" it from the academic side of the university. Div 2 (yes I still call it that) teams will get crushed since their budgets are dependent on the pay days from playing the big boys.

    Maybe it's the start of the move away from the ncaa and break away of the p5. Are they that savvy?

    All done for SEC TV contract and ESPN. More quality games to broadcast. If you control a conference requirements for player safety, conduct, practice, and health screening, you have better chance than playing opponents from another conf that may not have the same resources or financial means.

    They are basing that on our old schedule, before our weakest opponent was removed (along with Eastern Washington, South Alabama and New Mexico State).

    And, he will now have to play Georgia again, too. Too late to transfer again?
