Big loss for all SEC teams money-wise. This means each SEC team has to go on the road every other year for this conference game rather than staying at home and eating a cup cake. For example: Tennessee generates $4M revenue (rough estimation) from the ticket sell for each home game, that means a $4M loss every other year, or on average a $2M loss every year. SEC'd better address this issue in the new media contract.

Even you guys should be able to torch their pass defense.

Being reported to be false. Sticking with 8 game schedule. Never talked about 9.

Don't like Clay either, but he's not the only one saying that. Being reported by Keith@Rivals as well. Besides, as much as an a$$ that he is, he's been spot on about conf. re-alignmen. Like, best in the nation good.

Yeah outside of news from south Carolina sites (claiming the USCe president said it) I really have seen nothing more at all to verify the story

...kind of want to see it somewhere else first other than some small SC news sources before we completely go run with this idea a bit more

SEC's Bloom says 8 game schedule for SEC


Quote:
SEC public relations ace Charles Bloom — deluged with questions about a nine-game football schedule no doubt — has taken to Twitter to write the following:


“#SEC will continue to play eight conference games in football.* There has been no discussions on nine game schedule.”


So did University of South Carolina president Harris Pastides give false information to his own school’s student newspaper?* Did he simply give his opinion?* Did Josh Dawsey, the editor-in-chief of The Daily Gamecock misunderstand Pastides meaning?

Considering the fact that Dawsey relays quite a bit of detailed information from Pastides — ex: “The president guaranteed USC would keep its annual matchup with Arkansas.” — it’s doubtful that Dawsey was reading into things.*

It’s also unlikely that Pastides just flat-out lied to a reporter for the USC student paper.* He’s been quoted in that publication quite often in recent weeks — on sports topics — and we can’t recall any problems like this arising in the past.

So we suspect the SEC office might be making sure that everyone’s unanimous regarding schedules moving forward.* Schools like Florida and Georgia and Arkansas and Texas A&M, who play at neutral sites, would stand to possibly lose a bit more cash from the loss of another home date every other year.* Those schools’ presidents probably need a bit more coaxing and cajoling when it comes to a nine-game schedule.

But as we pointed out here, the most likely path for a 14-team SEC is one that leads to a nine-game schedule.* Unless the league is cooking up some sort of free-for-all plan, the best way to insure balance, the continuation of old rivalries, and regular matchups between all league foes is to move to a nine-game schedule.*

Bloom’s comment?* We think it’s spin control.* The SEC doesn’t want one president to say a deal’s done before all 14 presidents have OK’d said deal.

Do you really believe 13 SEC presidents just voted to add another school without anyone ever asking what that move would mean for scheduling?* For travel?* For home game revenues?* So it’s pretty hard to believe there have been “no discussions.”

And for how many weeks did SEC officials claim that they were considering a 13-team schedule only for 2012… only to have an ESPN executive and then Mike Slive himself admit otherwise?

The league will go to nine-games just like all the other BCS leagues are planning to do.* It’s as sure a thing as Missouri’s entry into the SEC was.* An eight-game schedule will hurt the league long-term.* Slive has to know that.* Pastides knows that.* It’s our bet a few more presidents just need convincing of that.*

We now expect Pastides to try to somehow distance himself from his earlier comments for the purpose of maintaining league harmony.* But that won’t change the fact that a nine-game schedule is coming at some point.

Small hasn't "reported" anything in a while. He is simply a zookeeper.

Local sports radio in bammer will make you yearn for things people on here complain about without thought.
