because Tennessee still sucks, if Tennessee becomes a highly ranked team, then the SEC office well decide that it's time to do away with permanent opponents


Alabama would fight that like hell, we don't ever want to stop that series no matter the circumstances. We aren't bitches. And the schools voted 11(including UF)-3 to keep permanent opponents, so...

Thanks for this new and interesting topic

Idiot.

There has been an addition of 2 new teams to the conference in a matter of less than 12 months.

The 2014 schedule came out today. Florida is on it.

There was prevalent talk of ridding this nonsense permanent rivalry as soon as A&M entered.

For the sake of logic and reason, this annual game needs to be put to bed. Louisiana and Florida are not next door neighbors. Unfortunately, that decision still goes through Birmingham.

Lol we've played Florida every year except for two years since 1953.

I love playing UF. I would be sorely disappointed if we did not play them every season.

Tennessee is 99-65 since 2000. I see why you'd want to keep them. For frick's sake, we wouldn't want to drop Miss St either.

How many permanent opponents does LSU have?

If you answered one, then you are wrong. LSU plays every team in the West every year.

Permanent non-divisional opp. is just a way to screw LSU. The don't be a pussy argument could very easily cost LSU an National Championship this year.

The Point TROCK was that this issue was settled before this schedule came out, when it was voted on a month or a couple months ago... its not breaking news...

If you didn't think UF would be on our 2014 schedule then you're a fricking moron.

Yes the topic came up, yes Miles asserted he didn't like it. Then the topic was beaten to death here and on the SEC rant and nothing official became of it. Some LSU fans whined, others made good points, and some said they liked the rivalry.

You honestly believe that the first thing we'd hear of permanent opponent's being abolished would come from the schedule being released and us being all like UH WTF WARS FLERDA?
