SEC moving toward 10 game conference only schedule
Tweet from Ross Dellenger:

NEWS: The #SEC is moving closer to a conference-only 10-game schedule, sources tell @SINow.

ADs agreed on the matter Wednesday and presidents are expected to meet Thursday, though they may delay a decision until next week.

This is a fluid situation.

That last line is Dellenger’s, not mine.

Won't be conference only. Florida/FSU, Clemson/SC, Georgia/GT, Kentucky/Louisville will be played.

A 10 plus 1 schedule is more likely.

From Andy Staples:



So here’s the deal with the SEC-ACC thing.

The ACC can always lop off the non-conference game if the SEC decides to go conference-only.

But everyone will know who backed out, and there are four SEC schools that probably would rather not deal with the local political fallout.

I’m fine with a 10 plus 1 and actually prefer it to what the normal schedule is

I want to see at South Carolina and home against Missouri as the extra two games.

Bama is just 1-1 all time at home against Missouri and 4-2 against them all time.

Bama is just 1-1 at South Carolina under Saban's Dynasty run.

re: SEC moving toward 10 game conference only schedule
quote:

The ACC Board of Directors met on Wednesday and decided that it will indeed attempt to play a fall sports schedule, including football, "if public health allows".

Football will begin the week of September 7, and the teams will play a 10-game conference schedule with one extra game allowed against a non-conference opponent that meets the medical protocol requirements set forth by the league. The non-conference game has to be played in the home state of each ACC team, the league said.

There will not be an Atlantic Division or a Coastal Division this year either, and Notre Dame will be allowed to play as an ACC member (it is currently a member in every sport except football). The Irish will have to split television money equally among its fellow ACC members this year, though.


So those in state rivalry games between the ACC and SEC will happen as of now.

But Auburn vs UNC can't happen unless it's moved from Atlanta to North Carolina. OK

Which is pretty silly considering that 5 teams will play @ Georgia Tech in Atlanta, but UNC can't play Auburn in Atlanta.

Truth - although I am really bummed about the USC game. I was really looking forward to that.

So the ACC is doing away with their divisions this year. Clemson won't have to face a 6-5 VaTech in their CCG.

Sounds like the SEC is still kicking the can again. Starting in late Sept. Wait and see what happens theory.

re: SEC moving toward 10 game conference only schedule
I honestly don't understand what they expect to change from early September to late September. Seems like all of these 2-3 week pushbacks are more of a "we don't have a clue but want to appear proactive" sort of deal rather than anything designed to actually achieve enhanced safety.

Why are they waiting til September 26? I thought the whole idea of conference only was to provide more open dates and wiggle room in case of positive tests?

I think it gives them a chance to just cancel the season if they see things are not going well with the other conferences. All start before us.

I really thought the SEC would have been a leader in pushing to have games, not the opposite.
I am disappoint

The SEC wussed out, so much for it meaning more down south.

It's going to be hard to miss Georgia State, Kent State, and UT Martin on our schedule.

We play FL and GA and TN. Could we be Eastern div champs and not win the West? What a cluster.

My preseason pick for the Natl Champ is Covid-19
