don't need but 2 more teams to make a number that will divide easier.

I think the worry over 9 games is pressure from outside the sec. tv raised hell about certain ooc games and to be honest rightfully so. other conferences are saying theirs is better cause they play everybody in the conference and to be honest that is bs. until we add or subtract teams 8 is fine but get the stupid games off the schedule.

People with a vested interest in other conferences are the one's who started crying about how we should play 9 conference games. Of course they want us to beat each other up more. But I'd say 8 is fine, then just get rid of the garbage games. Doesn't matter what other conferences want, but money talks...so with the SEC Network debuting this year there will be more of a push for better games to get better ratings. Stop playing bullsh!t games except for maybe once/year.

I'd say 8 conferences games + 2 BCS opponents + 1 mid major + 1 FCS school

or if some schools have trouble finding two BCS schools in a particular year then try your best to get good mid majors that season.

  that's the real problem.  If some schools would actually schedule something besides a cupcake then we wouldn't need 9 SEC games.   That's why attendance is down because of the OOC scheduling.

The only way Alabama begins to schedule legit OOC is legislation.   Alabama should be playing UCLA, Ok State, Clemson or Miami instead of Western Carolina, Florida Atlantic and So Miss

There's something to be said for playing an in state school ie EKU  to help them out.  other than one of those gimmes, UK needs to put Indiana back on the schedule.  Them plus Louisville, small in stater, and an interesting OOC or another rotating West game.

Not only would I like to see 9 conference games, I would also like to see an alliance with the ACC. Four schools are already playing four of them. Line up the other 10 in each league. Home game(s) with them would be played in the year you played 4 SEC home games. Away game(s) with them would be played in the year you played 4 SEC away games.
