    Not a fan, unless they change bowl eligibilty rules to take the 70 best teams, regardless of record.

    The worse thing about it will be the unbalanced home/away schedule from year to year.
    5 SEC road games will be Hell...

    The rumor i heard was that in addition to the 9-game schedule, everyone would have to play one hard non-conference game each year. More tv $$$ and "fair" to Georgia/Florida/South Carolina. Any word on that?

    It could potentially bite the upper teams too. The ninth game could be a roadblock to getting sec team in championship.

    Worst idea ever. The SEC will realize it ****ed up when it goes from 8-10 teams routinely in bowls to 6-7. Because we won't be the only ones on the short end of this change. Mississippi, Vandy, TN, and Mizzou will all be in the same boat. Hell, it's all Vandy can do now to go 6-6. That loss of revenue will force a re-evaluation at some point. For all the good it'll do us after missing bowling for a couple of years running.
    Fire Bracky!

    I haven't heard anything but I do think this will be the case. They will probably put in a rule against FCS teams sometime in the future

    It's going to really hurt teams like us. Especially on the "away heavy" years. I big time hate this.

    Technically that would be 'fair'. Would not benefit us, but it would be fair.

    We should be on the horn with Iowa State, Duke, Oregon State, Kansas State, Texas Tech, Indiana, N.C. State, etc. RIGHT NOW. Beat them to the punch. And depending on who they consider 'hard', go after others like Colorado State, Wyoming, UConn, etc.

    I wonder how Scott voted? I suppose those fans that said we need to up our schedule by adding in a team like OSU will be thrilled with this requirement. This way we get to up the schedule quality right here in the conference.

    If we have to play an even tougher schedule to make it fair for Florida, then they should have to share their profits with us equally. Fair is fair.

    I need to buy a vowel here. What do 6-1-1 and 6-2-1 mean?

    A couple of weeks ago Bo Bounds interview Scott who said he was opposed to the idea.

    One would think that Mizzou, Vandy, OM, Kentucky, and maybe even Tennessee would oppose it. I wonder how it ever passed.

    For us 6-2-1 means 6 games vs west, 2 vs non permanent east teams, and permanent east team (Kentucky)
