The fourteen-school ACC announces that it will go to a nine-game conference schedule, beginning in 2014.
Mike Slive, take notes.

Has GT canceled it’s series with UGA yet???
Naw. ACC games aren’t tough.

Yeah, but a traditional rivalry in the ACC is like Wake vs. State. Not exactly big whoop.
After watching the Orange Bowl* and , Slive thinks that any game with an ACC team is a cupcake game so he’s going to stand on eight.
*and Kevin’s “growing philosophical rift” with Dabo
9 is the way to go….Keep Tech….schedule two cupcakes. The downside of course is no cross-country series again….ever…..stinks, but if we want to keep Auburn every year, it’s really the only way.
So they just add another cupcake to the schedule, then.
I must be in the minority, but I want it kept at 8. The schedule is tough enough and 9 games will hurt the SEC. We have won 6 straight BCS titles, why tamper with that success.
People said the same thing when the SEC moved from 6 to 7 and then to 8 conference games and added the conference championship game. To me, it all comes down to how much more the TV folks would be willing to pay for the extra inventory that a 9-game schedule would produce so they don’t have to feature LSU-Ole Miss in a marquee.
It is quite obvious there is a lack of talent at the head of the SEC ship. Fans need to pressure AD’s and presidents to give them a better slate of games.
No. Fans need to pressure the ADs and presidents to get rid of Slive which will, in turn, lead to a better slate of games.
The 9-game SEC schedule is overdue and worthy of our support. We are Georgia, a college team that has challernged the best through the years. We don’t need no stinkin’ shrinkin’ from competition. If we don’t win it all by doing this, so be it. When did this shrinking violet shit creep into our fan base? This is unworthy of fans not to want the best aggressive team to be champion. So you can sustain a loss in this hotter crucible. So what. It ain’t the end of the earth. But it is the loss of confidence in those we have chosen to take the UGA banner forward. If numbers decide the NC, then there are more problems than we can create abounding in the milieu. You cheapen our victories by thinking such nonsense.
If some of you blanche in the face of FU, LSU, Bama winning NCs and don’t think we are in the same arena, then shame on you. Luck has a lot to do with the final outcome, but guts for the competitive spirit should not falter in the face of greater competition. I don’t want a NC borne of cupcakes and scheming.
We are Georgia.
Apple to oranges. Going to a 9-game ACC schedule will reduce the members’ strength of schedule, not increase it. [Ducks]
Take notes on what? How to be stupid?
I don’t want a 9 game SEC schedule. 8 is fine.
