Re: The SEC
i will copy another of post - but lets face i am a UGA fan. On our schedule we play the past two national champions a top 10 ASU program. when can we get OSU on our schedule? should we sneak them in between the back to back games between LSU and Florida. we are already playing the toughest schedule in the country this year.
last season OSU did not beat a team that finished in the AP Top 15. the big ten lacks a championship game further watering down their strenght of schedule. Since OSU failed to beat a top 15 team, THEY HAVE TO go out of conference to play quality competition.
Tennesee and OSU are in discussion about a home and away game. I think it may already be on the books.
We do play out conference games, we (uga) are going to play a top 10 Arizona State at Arizona State.
The biggest reason the Top SEC schools do not travel north to OSU or michigan is because we get all of the competition we need in our own conference. Once you throw in the confernce championship game its brutal. look at our schedule for 08. we have two cupcakes to start the season. Georgia southern is like playing youngstown state, then central michigan (MAC Champions). but then we get cooking playing at South Carolina, going to Arizona State, then Alabama at home, then Tennesee at home, at Vanderbilt (but dam they have played us really tough the past two seasons, beating us once), then to LSU (you guys at OSU have heard of them - we might get stuck playing them at night at home when the are pratically unbeatable), the very next week we play Florida(another team that demolished OSU), then we go to kentucky, then we go Auburn, then wrap it up with Gatech. IF we win our division we looking at a rematch with either alabama, auburn, or LSU.
So where do we schedule that OSU game. As of right now based on the preason top 25 - 50% of our games are agianst top 25 teams - We play 3 teams in the top 10 Florida, LSU, and Arizona State.

The last two BCS title games cleary demostrated what happens when the two best teams from the SEC and big ten play each other. We simply kick their butts. You big ten guys are starting to sound like browns fan .
