    Someone should remind them that the SEC only plays chumps for non-conference.

    I don't think we will see many new big matchups scheduled until people see how the new BCS is going to work out (specifically the SOS component).

    Alabama has absolutely nothing to gain playing Wisconsin

    Sorry to bother this thread with relevant facts because I dislike the SEC as much as anyone, but facts are facts.

    Doesn't Iowa have a home-and-home deal in effect for 2015 & 16 with the Eastern Idaho Polytechnic School for the Blind?

    I also see Illinois has a few HS teams on the schedule in the near future

    Re: Alabama declines offer to play Wisconsin in football

    Big 10 powers who want to have a chance at a playoff spot will need to schedule tough non-con opponents to make up for their weak conference schedule. SEC doesn't have this problem and can get a tough SOS even playing the Weak Sisters of the Poor in August and September.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    Big 10 teams get bored in their lame conference so it makes sense they are looking for more challenges.
