Anyone who says the 2011 schedule was more difficult than the 2013 is ignorant. We played fl,tn,and ky from the east, or and wv ooc. Fl and wv were shite that year. This year we play tcu and add a&m for an easter division foe, add a legit ga and fl this year and this may be the most difficult schedule in my 39 year life.
Are you kidding me?
Arkansas was ranked #3 when we played them
Oregon was ranked #3 when we played them
Bama was ranked #2 when we played them
#17 Florida, #16 W. Virginia, #25 Miss. st, #20 Auburn RANKED.
Then we faced #16 UGA and #2 Bama. Eight ranked teams (actually 9, but we played Bama twice)
WVU went and won the Orange Bowl, Oregon went and won the Rose Bowl. We play Kent st, Furman, and UAB this year. That alone makes our schedule worse.
Replace Arky with UGA, Oregon with A&M, and WVU with TCU. UF stays UF, Bama stays Bama but Oh look!!! That's fricking it!
We don't have a 20 ranked Auburn on our sched (not even close)
We don't have a 25 ranked MSU on our sched (not even close)
So tell me again how this schedule is so much harder?
