Our non conference opponents in the past few years have been as good as anyone else in the country.
Oregon, WVU, Va Tech, TCU, Washington, UNC. Those are very good non conference opponents. And in the next few years we will play Wisconsin, Arizona St, and NC State.
And opponents have to agree to play us too. Its not like we just throw a team on the schedule and they have to play us. They have to agree to play us too. And not that many teams want to do that.
Theres a reason why our schedule is usually 1 of the hardest in the country. And its not just because we play in the SEC. Its because we schedule really good non conference opponents. And we have UF as SECE opponent.
And every year, regardless of who you play, will have a handful of cup cake games. You dont want to play a lot of big time non conference opponents when other SEC teams are playing cupcake teams and resting their players and getting younger guys some PT.
