Subject: Evidence mounts of a Scandal in the SEC
In case you haven't heard, there is a Conspiracy theory regarding the "SEC Bridge Schedules".
Conspiracy theories happen all of the time, however, when they become backed up by facts, they are no longer conspiracy theories.
In 2013, there are only 2 teams out of 14 that benefited by "SEC Bridge Schedules", care to take a guess who they are?
After researching every SEC West teams' rotating East opponents, it is clear that in 2013, the "SEC Bridge Schedule" was done with one purpose, to give an easier schedule to Alabama and Auburn.
In 2013, they are the only 2 teams who are playing an easier opponent than they should be playing and it is clear how it was done.
The SEC schedule creator swapped the opponent that Alabama was "Due" to play with LSU, and swapped Auburn's with Arkansas.
Alabama should be playing at Georgia in 2013 and LSU should be playing at Kentucky. Now, it's LSU at Georgia and Alabama at Kentucky.
Auburn should be playing at Florida in 2013 and Arkansas should be playing at Tennessee. Now, it's Arkansas at Florida and Auburn at Tennessee.
All of the facts needed to conclude how this was done are detailed in this email, which was sent to some of the SEC Athletic Directors and Head Coaches, along with some of the Media and those who work in the SEC Office. From here, it will be up to some of those in the media to pursue this and ask questions.
The Mountain of Evidence
Below are the 2 rotating SEC East opponents for all teams in the SEC West from 2007-2011. It is the most recent full rotation, and upon review, it becomes obvious if each team's opponent in 2012 and 2013 are justified and make sense. It is also clear to see who benefited most by the "SEC Bridge Schedule", and exactly how it was created.
2007 - at South Carolina, Tennessee
2008 - at Tennessee, Vanderbilt
2009 - at Vanderbilt, Florida
2010 - at Florida, Georgia
2011 - at Georgia, South Carolina
2012 - Tennessee
2013 - at South Carolina
Miss State's opponents in 2012 and 2013 make sense. In 2007, they played Tennessee at home and South Carolina on the road. In 2012, they played Tennessee at home and in 2013, they will play South Carolina on the road.
2007 - at Georgia, Florida
2008 - at Florida, South Carolina
2009 - at South Carolina, Tennessee
2010 - at Tennessee, Kentucky
2011 - at Kentucky, Georgia
2012 - at Georgia
2013 - Missouri
Ole Miss' opponents in 2012 and 2013 make sense. In 2007, they played Georgia on the road and in 2012, they played Georgia on the road. They will play Missouri in 2013 and since someone has to play Missouri, there is no problem.
2007 - at Florida, Vanderbilt
2008 - at Vanderbilt, Tennessee
2009 - at Tennessee, Kentucky
2010 - at Kentucky, South Carolina
2011 - at South Carolina, Florida
2012 - at Vanderbilt
2013 - at Tennessee
Auburn played at Vanderbilt in 2012 and this does make sense, even tough they were "Due" to play at Florida. The reason is because Florida had to play LSU at home in 2012. Since Florida could only play 1 SEC West team at home in 2012, it does make sense that the "Schedule Creator" moved down to the next road game in the rotation, which was at Vanderbilt.
Auburn playing at Tennessee in 2013 makes zero sense. We'll get back to that after reviewing Arkansas' schedule.
2007 - at Tennessee, Kentucky
2008 - at Kentucky, Florida
2009 - at Florida, Georgia
2010 - at Georgia, Vanderbilt
2011 - at Vanderbilt, Tennessee
2012 - Kentucky
2013 - at Florida
Arkansas played Kentucky at home in 2012, just like they did in 2007. This makes sense.
In 2013, Arkansas plays at Florida, even though they were "Due" to play at Tennessee like in 2007. In 2013, Auburn is "Due" to play at Florida, however, the "Schedule Creator" swapped these games. Now, Auburn is playing at Tennessee, and Arkansas is playing at Florida. The only reason to do this is to give a clear advantage to Auburn in 2013.
2007 - at Vanderbilt, Georgia
2008 - at Georgia, Kentucky
2009 - at Kentucky, South Carolina
2010 - at South Carolina, Florida
2011 - at Florida, Vanderbilt
2012 - at Missouri
2013 - at Kentucky
Alabama played at Missouri in 2012 and since someone had to play at Missouri, there is no problem.
In 2013, Alabama is "Due" to play at Vanderbilt, however, in 2013 Vanderbilt has to play their permanent opponent, Ole Miss at home, and since they can only play 1 SEC West team at home, it does make sense that Alabama could not play at Vanderbilt in 2013.
Next in the rotation is for Alabama to play at Georgia in 2013, however, they are playing at Kentucky, which makes zero sense. We'll get back to that after reviewing LSU's schedule.
2007 - at Kentucky, South Carolina
2008 - at South Carolina, Georgia
2009 - at Georgia, Vanderbilt
2010 - at Vanderbilt, Tennessee
2011 - at Tennessee, Kentucky
2012 - South Carolina
2013 - at Georgia
In 2012, LSU played South Carolina at home, just like in 2007. This makes sense.
In 2013, LSU plays at Georgia, even though they were "Due" to play at Kentucky, like they did in 2007. In 2013, since Alabama could not play at Vanderbilt (Mentioned Above), next in their rotation was to play at Georgia, however the "Schedule Creator" swapped these games. Now, Alabama is playing at Kentucky, and LSU is playing at Georgia. The only reason to do this is to give a clear advantage to Alabama in 2013.
2012 - Florida
2013 - Vanderbilt
There is no problem with Texas A&M's schedule. They had to play someone, so why not Florida and Vanderbilt, a tough opponent in 2012, followed by an easier opponent in 2013.
