Will LSU keep Florida as their permanent opponent?
HOOVER, Al. - Florida head coach Will Muschamp told reporters at SEC Media Days Tuesday he was flat-out "tired of talking about scheduling," but the questions won't go away.
Especially when LSU's cross-divisional opponent is one of the perennial powers in the SEC East - Florida.
SEC Commissioner Mike Slive said he was in favor of doing what the member schools wanted but pointed to the super-majority vote in favor of a 6-1-1 permanent opponent league schedule in 2012. However, Slive has now entrusted the future of scheduling within the conference to a review of how to move forward after 2013's "bridge" schedule.
"We not only have to schedule 2014, 15, but we'll move on based on that subject to the review."
The commissioner also went on to say the review included whether to stay at an eight game SEC schedule or expand it to nine.
"What I would want us to do beginning in 16" Slive told reporters Tuesday. "It has to be in the best interest of the entire conference. That's our hallmark, that's what's made the SEC great."
