2011 SEC Non-conference Schedule Sucks


The SEC has proven its dominance in the NCG and a few bowl games but its overall non-conference schedule is extremely weak in 2011.  There is, of course, Oregon at LSU and Boise at UGA to start the season and then Bama at PSU and Texas A&M at Arky a little later.  And, of course, FSU at UF in the last week.  Other than that, it is zilch.  No more Pac 12 teams.  No more Big 10 teams.  No more Big 12 teams.  There are a couple of mid-level ACC match-ups (SC has Clemson at home and UGA is on the road against Ga Tech) and some interesting match-ups with in-state teams (UAB@UF, Troy@Ark, UAB@MSU, and Samford@Aub) but this schedule does very little for our national SOS.  It also puts an inordinate amount of weight on the Oregon/LSU game and the UGA/Boise game.

I don't think we need to defend ourselves against critics but, as a fan, I sure would like to see some better non-conference games.  Wouldn't bigger non-conference games mean more money?  Has this fact escaped Mike Slive and the AD's?  Help me out here.  How did it get so bad?  And why don't the power brokers want to make it better?
