Pete Fiutak of College Football News has an analysis of the 2007 SEC schedules up today that’s definitely worth a look.
First off, here’s how he rates the schedule difficulties for the twelve schools:
Based on home games as well as who the teams play. when
4. South Carolina
2. Mississippi State
6. Ole Miss
The only thing I’d really quibble with on that list is his judgment that any school in the conference has a weaker schedule than that of Arkansas, which, barring a plane crash, will be bowl eligible just by showing up on time for its games.
If I’m reading the rest of his story correctly, he’s predicting that it’s likely that no team in the SEC East will have a losing record in 2007. Whoa.
Oh yeah – I can already tell that I’m weary of “Georgia fans know how good Vanderbilt can be” type comments. Let’s not give anyone a reason to write that kind of stuff again for a long time, guys…
