We were trying to get a home and home with The Ohio State university, but y'all backed out. Remember? http://www.espn.com/college-football...me-home-series

The real answer is because several of the SEC and ACC teams play rivalry games against teams that are out of conference, i.e. Clemson/ SC, Georgia/ GT, Kentucky/ Louisville. In order to do that, they have to start the ACC/SEC schedule by the third week to get 8 conference games an a bye in an allow those teams to play the rivalry game on the traditional weekend after Thanksgiving(13th week). You also have Alabama/Auburn, Vandy/Tenn, Ole Miss/ Miss St., NC/NCST, etc. that are all in conference rivalries they also play on the last weekend. In order to do that, those teams have to schedule an out of conference game on the 12th week. There is no real way to schedule a power 5 team that week, as they are all playing conference games, so they end up getting small schools.

Why not play a 9th in conference game like everybody else.

You'll never win this argument Guth,SEC is way down this year but in the past playing 8 SEC teams is like anyone else playing 10 in theirs.

I'm not the head of either conference, but it wouldn't make sense for the ACC to do it. They not have the Notre Dame wrap around deal, so they are going to play 9 conference games and has some teams forced to play Notre Dame, and still have to start conference games by the 3rd week. The SEC doesn't do it, because again, still have to start the conference schedule by the third week. PAC twelve, BIG 10, BG 12, doesn't have to do that because the last week can still be in conference for all. They can open with a big game the first week, and then have two cupcakes before conference games start, i.e your boys. They aren't going to play a big game, then two weeks later start conference games. Ohio State doesn't do that either.

The SEC has been playing a conference championship game since 1992, 20 years before the big 10 caught on.

We all know the SEC is considered the top conference just based on all the others comparing themselves and attacking us. It's all good

Not sure I'm understanding this. Tosu opened the season against big10 Indiana and played Oklahoma the second week. I don't think any conference opened against another conference team

I agree that the SEC should play a 9 game schedule, especially now that there are 14 teams in the conference. I also believe that each conference should play a conference championship game even if they only have 10 teams and have already played during the season. That way all conference champions would have completed a 10 game conference schedule

A chance to lick their wounds and give the third string boys some play. Not to mention reward millions of dollars to athletic programs that otherwise would never draw that kind of money to a game. #4 Oklahoma is playing the Kansas JayHawks this weekend. #2 Clemson is playing Citadel. I would hardly qualify that as "the hardest" part of their schedule.
