We May Have Just Won Last Year's SEC Championship!

Fluker is the biggest issue here. His violation supposedly happened in early 2012. If the NCAA finds that he took impermissible benefits, all of the Crimson Tide's wins from the 2012 season, including the BCS national championship, would almost certainly be vacated.

Please please please please please. Go 'Dawgs!

#Mizzou D-tackle Sheldon Richardson on Georgia: "It's like watching Big Ten football. It's old man football."

Tough talk from a player for a team the Big Ten rejected. How 'bout if you actually play an SEC football game before you start ragging on charter members of the league, all right, Sheldon? You're the Vietnamese boat people of the conference; we rescued you from oblivion. Show a little respect until you actually win something . . . something like a game against a Division I-A opponent, O.K.? Go 'Dawgs!

As experts predicted, ESPN will pay $80m/year for the Champions Bowl per SBD this morning. Same money as Rose Bowl.

From ESPN's Kristi Dosh It's odd to see ESPN's sports business reporter passing on a report on ESPN by the Sports Business Daily, but the big four-letter really does keeps its business and journalism sides separate. Anyway, this is a huge payday for just one bowl game. If the pot gets split up evenly all around, that's $40 million to each conference, $4 million to each Big 12 school, and $2.86 million to each SEC school. Incidentally, that kind of math is what argues against Big 12 expansion in the future.

Sources said Georgia's schedule got harder.

Unexpected expansion-driven changes to the basketball schedule just gave the Hoop Hounds a tougher slate. (Hat tip: Team Speed Kills.) I'm sure we're going to get a lot of comments from South Carolina fans who are sympathetic to the injustice of it all. Go 'Dawgs!

I have come to the opinion that we give Georgia entirely too much crap. We’ve played Georgia more than we’ve played Ole Miss, Kentucky, or Florida, not to mention our brothers from 1992 and 2012. We have a lower winning percentage and lower average point differential against Georgia (58.46%, 4.4 delta) than any SEC team not named Missouri (33.33%, -6.67 delta), the Auburnite, or Tennessee, and Herschel was only there for 3 of those 65 games. You’ll notice that a single point separates the deltas of Tennessee, the Auburnite and Georgia, and then there is a jump of 2.46 to LSU, then another 1.82 to Arkansas, and so on. Georgia has been pretty competitive with us for a long time.

Some much-appreciated respect for Georgia from Roll 'Bama Roll. I'm pretty sure Herschel never played against Alabama, but that's a minor point. The hat tip from our fellow Auburn-hating brethren is appreciated. Go 'Dawgs!

#Big12's Chuck Neinas told @1049TheHorn a colleague in the #SEC told him, "Don't expand beyond 12 because 14 becomes unruly."

From Chip Brown This quote could mean something or it could mean nothing depending on just who this "colleague" is. Don't bet on ever finding out this colleague's identity, though. As much as anything, Neinas is probably just trying to keep the conference's expansion cards close to the vest. For one thing, he likely won't be making any real decisions because incoming, non-interim commissioner Bob Bowlsby should be taking the lead on the issue. For another, things can get out of hand quickly. The real lesson the conference has apparently learned from the SEC is to go slowly and do everything you can to make it look like your expansion targets approached you, not the other way around.

If you haven't noticed, the top level of college football is now narrowed to the Big Four – Pac-12, Big Ten, Big 12 and SEC. Those 48 schools control most of the influence, power, money and, most importantly, product in the Football Bowl Subdivision."

He's a great coach, he's the best thing that's happened to this program since Vince Dooley. We've just gotta go out there and play ball this year. We've still got goals we want to achieve. We want to go to the SEC, I mean we went last year but we want to win. We want to go to Miami, for the national championship.

Bacarri Rambo has the right attitude. Go 'Dawgs!

At least at this point in time, a nine-game football schedule has little support among the membership for myriad reasons, with the ADs at Georgia and Tennessee being the lone known exceptions.

In Nashville today, seven hours of meetings produced no decision by the SEC athletic directors on an eight- or nine-game league schedule for 2013, but Greg McGarity appears open to the idea, in order to preserve the Deep South's Oldest Rivalry. Go 'Dawgs!

2012 #SEC football conference schedule will be released tomorrow (Wed.) at 9 am CT (10 am ET). Catch it on www.secdigitalnetwork.com.

The SEC will announce the 2012 football schedule at 10:00 a.m. Eastern on Wednesday. Could this take a little longer? Go 'Dawgs!
