If I recall, this is the same fanbase that complained about LSU scheduling to many boring cupcake games earlier this year so lots of you made your way to the exits after halftime. So I ask you, what do you as a fanbase want? More exciting SEC games that are fun to watch to the end or boring cupcake games?
Why phrase it like that, unless you don't want an honest answer? That's actually two separate issues.
Our OOC schedule is one topic for conversation...our conference schedule another. OOC is simply a harder thing to accomplish...tons of teams, moving conference affiliations, home & home series requirements, etc. As much as we may enjoy seeing marquee type home & home series every season, those are just tough to come by. Even so, it would be nice to bring in some mid-major as opposed to bottom dwellers...though we did both this year in hosting UW and Towson. But this is really a separate issue...
As for our conference schedule, there is nothing inherently weak about expecting our closest conference rival to have to play a similarly difficult schedule as we do. To allow them to consistently get the easier ride because we fear being called chicken if we don't run the toughest gauntlet is just foolish. It may be true that BAMA had a significantly easier SEC slate than LSU did this year...but until they or the media give a crap they may very likely be hoisting their 3rd flag in 4 season, while we tout our strength of schedule title.
