Florida has been designated as LSU’s permanent opponent out of the SEC East. The Tigers and Gators have played every year since 1971.
And but for a 3-year hiatus from 1968-1970, every year before that going all the way back to 1953.
Georgia replaces South Carolina on LSU’s schedule from this year as a rotating SEC East opponent
We played them in 2008 and 2009, Vandy in '09 and '10, Tennessee in '10 and '11, Kentucky in '11 and South Carolina in '12. If they are following the "rotation" theory, we should get Missouri or Vanderbilt in 2014, and Alabama should get Georgia. If that doesn't happen, then the SEC has abandoned all pretense at fairness.
SEC Executive Associate Commissioner Mark Womack said in a statement that the 2013 schedule is “a bridge” to a permanent 12-year scheduling format to begin with the 2014 season
Of course. Let Alabama have Missouri and Kentucky during this "bridge" period (while we get top-10 South Carolina and Georgia), then just when it's our turn to get a break and have Missouri or Vandy, and their turn to finally play somebody with a pulse from the East, start a new "rotation". a-holes.
And of course the permanent opponents are balanced, since Tennessee = Florida, right? Turds.
The Tigers finish with home games against Arkansas on Nov. 23 and Texas A&M on Nov. 30.
You have these reversed, don't you? Your schedule listed under it suggests so...
Nov. 23: Texas A&M (Baton Rouge) Nov. 30: Arkansas (Baton Rouge)
I hope we do start playing A&M on T-giving weekend, but I'd rather move Arkie up to an earlier part of the season, when they are usually playing like crap. Moving them up by only one weekend would let them keep treating it like the Super Bowl as they do now.
