Where was all the outrage when the schedule gave 6 or 7 SEC schools bi weeks before playing Bama a few years ago? Surely those same people in Birmingham were running things then too? It was after all, in 2009 and 2010.
Schools get to request when they want their bi-week, they don't get to request their cross division rival and who they want to request as their second cross division game.
If the pendulum swings and Tennessee vaults its way to the top of the SEC east where it stood for a decade? Is it still unfair?
What if Muschamp turns out to be a Ron Zook clone? Is it still unfair?
What if your gump Aunt had balls? She"male" would be your gump Uncle.
First Muschamp is not a Ron Zook, we know he coached for LSU. Second look at UF body of work compared to Tenn's not even close UF has accomplished a hell of a lot more and I promise you even when Tenn did have it's good years under Fulmer teams were more afraid of UF than Tenn.
Look the fair way to do this is not to have cross-division rivals so no one get's a clear advantage no matter how a team trends. I mean do you really think that having UK as a division rival is a fair match up for a west team, no freaking way! Have both cross division games be home and away for different teams each year so that their is no way it can reek as bias.
You have to play everyone in the West, you should have to play everyone in the East too. It is not too difficult to determine or make educated guesses who is going to be competitive the following year since they put the schedules out so late every year. Make one game what should be an easier game and one game what should be a more difficult game for everyone. That way no one can raise the issue of biasses. I mean come on, they take away your UGA game this year and give you Mizzou, and you get UK next year give me a F*CKING break, you can't say there was no politics involved in that one and if you do, bro I have some beach front property in Tenn I want to sell you cheap for beach front property, it is a steal you need to jump on it.
