Expansion is stupid. It's bad enough we have to wait a decade to play most schools in the opposite division; if we keep adding schools the SEC is going to weaken its centuries-old rivalries and the best conference in the country is going to lose its luster.

I agree. Plus playing the exact same teams every year would get old, quick. If they expand again, it might have to go to a 9 game conference schedule, and for teams like Florida, Georgia, and USC, there's no way they'd lose FSU, GT, and Clemson on their schedule. So that means the rivalry game, 7 divisional games that wont ever change, and a locked cross-division game. So 9 of the same people every single year, a different divisional team, and 2 cupcake games. I just don't like it.

yea same here. I am sick of it, but its a reality. I do like having mor marquee matchups with schools out of conference.  I hate playing shit schools like sam houston st and the like.

Matchup wise I agree completely.  I'm looking forward to starting with Clemson next season rather than Buffalo...the cupcakes have gotten incredibly old.  I just think they've drug it out long enough, make something happen already lol.

Exactly... Basically the exact same schedule EVERY single year... It'd be terrible...

They're thinking of their wallets before they think of the fans.

The funny part is that if you piss fans off enough those wallets will eventually get smaller. I hope that happens, honestly, as much as I love Auburn and the SEC.

Wow, looking at it that way really makes it worse. Expansion has sucked from the get go IMO but those schedules would get old, fast.

Unfortunately it very well may become a reality in the next couple of years.

If that's the case, maybe they should add another game. I mean if we're gonna have 4 super conferences make the schedule bigger.

That wouldn't be a bad idea. I doubt it will happen as the playoff scenario will already add an extra game for those four teams right?

Yeah I guess so, See, I never liked the "4" team playoff. If you're going to do it actually commit. No one is going to really care about bowls anymore so why not make that bigger? Maybe do it like the NFL and do a 12 team. And the bcs could still be relevant if they used the top 12 teams. Idk. I never liked the whole combine bowls and playoffs idea.

I agree, the whole thing has turned into a mess. I'm not sure about the 4 team playoff, I'm withholding judgement until we see it.  However, I wouldn't mind more teams being included. I haven't watched much but the FCS system seems to work fairly well, why not try it?

Especially when someone else (sub contractor) is buying and calling it a business meeting.
Long story short they wanted some contact and contract info on some Sandy Jobs we turned down because they were "Rebuild in Place" If they are stupid enough to try it they are stupid enough to buy me a 30 dollar lunch.
