Vanderbilt and Alabama. Really shocked it wasn’t Kentucky or South Carolina, unless football (and other sports) have the same opponents too…..
Three permanent football opponents won’t happen until a) they get a new contract based on a 9 game SEC schedule, b) they vote in the 6-3 format. I’d assume those would be football only considerations.I don't think the permanent opponents will be the same in football, last word I heard was they were looking at 3 permanent opponents for that. However, maybe the football rivalries are influencing the assignments for baseball here.
