If that is the case please explain why new comers to the Mega Conference status such as B1G and ACC adopted this concept in lieu of the Big XII. Certainally they had to see the flaws in this antiquated system.

Why not embrace the idea of playing FL every year? After all, we have played them almost every year since 1953, which is more than we have played any other SEC program during this period except for Ole Piss and Moo U.
Did Tenn cry throughout the 90's when FL had an unfair advantage of playing LS...

Kind of ironic that he chose to include teams from the east such as GA, TN, and KY in the history portion of the article and not FL. He even goes so far as give props to the fact that we played KY annually from 1952-2002.

They didn't have females when Petraeus was at WP. Females where admitted two years after he graduated. He was a highly decorated cadet so I'm guessing his father in law didn't have to help him with his career. Both Petreaeus and his mistress were captains on the Brigade Staff which means they wer...
