I wonder, had these boards been around then, if anyone would have been bitching from 1995 through 2006 when Tennessee went 10-2 against Bama?
FWIW, since the 1992 expansion, here is how both Florida and Tennesse have fared.
The fact that BAMA was so bad for a stretch that they couldn't take advantage of TENN is irrelevant. The fact is, that since the expansion, there's been very little comparison between those two programs. It's even worse when we look at more recent history.
I'm not saying BAMA oroginally scheduled them because they were weak. They scheduled them because of their tradition. What I'm saying is that THEY REFUSE to engage in a discussion to remove them from their schedule for the betterment of the entire SEC largely because they can chalk them up as a very likely win at this point and hide behind tradition. At that point, pointing out the disparity in the schedules makes complete sense.
