[quote]I think Ohio State is the only non SEC option.[/quote]
I agree. Closest thing to a top tier SEC program outside the SEC.
Playing a weak schedule however will cost them dearly in that game.
Oregon is probably second, but there is going to have to be hope that they come out hitting ...

Rotating cross-divisional opponents
cross-divisional opponents count as half-games in the divisional standings
What is wrong with this? We don't need permanent cross-divisional rivals in the SEC. Hell, we're ALL RIVALS to some extent. That's the beauty of this conference. ...

Disgree with Point 4. Yes teams are up and down but the cycles are not even across the board. You are more likely in a given year to find some programs more up than others. Rotating the schedules at least provides more randomness.
Remember, we are looking for schedule equality, which is in t...

A conspiracy theorist is no different than a scientist. He makes a hypothesis based on certain observable facts.
Scientists and researchers do this every single day.
I find people who are so condemning of plausible hypotheses weird.

It's weird, isn't it? I'll never understand the hate for a man by people who are philosophically and ideologically in the same boat as he is. I would think libertarians and conservatives would be all for any government watchdog, especially one as accessible as Beck.
