Re: The SEC
The question was why wont most SEC teams travel to the northern states to play?
Is it being too far away from SEC country? The fact that most of the season, the northern teams play in bad weather?
Like I said earlier, Ohio State will glady play SEC teams in the OOC schedule, but they will only do it in a home-and-home fashion. Why travel down to Georgia, Florida, LSU, Arkansas, Alabama, etc when none of them will return the favor and come up to Columbus and play? It's only fair.
Everyone schedules cupcakes in OOC. Ohio State is no different. Nobody is going to play a four Top 25 teams outside of the conference schedule, that's assinine. However OSU will normally schedule one team that's Top 25 in OOC.
When we scheduled Washington for last year, they were winning the Pac-10 and were projected as a team that would consistantly be a Top 25 team for a long time. Obviously that didn't happen.
