I love how Mike Slive makes it sound like the conference’s struggles with scheduling are kind of like dealing with a random act of nature, instead of something that was engineered by a poorly thought out expansion move.
Question: What’s the hardest part about juggling future SEC schedules?
Slive: “We try one (scenario), and there’s a knot. We try another one, and there’s a big knot – whether it’s permanent (games), whether it’s traditional games or whether it’s too many games. At some point in time, we’re going to have to unravel one of those knots and just make a decision.”
I’m guessing Slive isn’t using “we” in the imperial sense there. They’ve had three years to arrive at a consensus and it doesn’t feel any closer to a resolution now than when the train wreck started. How many more Destin meetings do you think there will be where they’re still trying to hash out the details?
