Any bets on how this puppy’s gonna turn out?
A year ago I would have sworn Auburn-Georgia and Alabama-Tennessee would be preserved, come hell or high water. Now, I’m thinking it’s eight games and ditch the rivalries. That’s what most of the coaches and ADs want, but they’ll tell us it’s for the fans.
It’s the natural culmination of what Slive has wrought over the past five seasons. And they can always revisit the ninth game if they need a better TV contract or the playoff selection committee screws over the conference.
At least there’s no players union, though. I’d hate to see what I love about college football tossed aside.
