An Answer to CT4's Question About Bridge Scheduling

If someone finally got around to answering this in a thread, you can ignore this.

This year's SEC schedule is NOT a bridge schedule. It is the start of the regular 12-year 6-1-1 rotation (6 in your division, 1 permanent cross-division rival, and 1 rotating cross-divisional game). Each team will play each of the 6 cross-divisional non-rivals in 6 consecutive years. We won't go to UF next season, we'll go somewhere else (my guess is USCe, or UGA, as they would have home games against their non-rival next year). So, in this case, our return trip to UF would happen in 2019 (I think).

I say "I think" because the SEC office refuses to release the actual rotation schedule. It is widely believed that it will change for the 2016 schedule to a 6-2 (with no permanent rivals), or that the league will go to 9 conference games in a 6-1-2, or 6-3 configuration. I can't remember where I saw the article with all this info (I only read about 20 articles about the 2014 season yesterday... FOOTBALL NEEDS TO GET HERE ALREADY!).

So the SEC office can say this isn't a bridge schedule if they want, but even they believe it'll only last 2 years.

Hope that helps.
