ESPN has its initial strength of schedule rankings posted here.  The SEC looks like this:

  • South Carolina  2
  • Alabama 3
  • LSU 4
  • Arkansas 7
  • Ole Miss 9
  • Auburn 11
  • Tennessee 14
  • Mississippi State 16
  • Georgia 18
  • Vanderbilt 30
  • Kentucky 32
  • Texas A&M 35
  • Florida 41
  • Missouri 54

The thing to keep in mind that if they’re forced to shrink the season because of the coronavirus, that spread is going to compress.  In other words, if I were a Florida fan, I’d be really hoping for a 12-game season.

    That Florida schedule is dragged down by FSU. FSU will better in November on the field than in May on paper

    Anything is possible, including back-to-back games vs. Alabama in December.

    No wonder all those media blowhards are picking FU to win the East. Plus, how can Georgia’s schedule only be #18 in the nation when we play both Bama and Auburn next season? Should be top 5 in difficulty IMHO.

    Scrolling around that list and looking at other columns I see thst USC (the real one, in California) is #13 in their FPI ranking, and Texas at #11.
    Those both seem high to me, but I admit I don’t pay enough attention to have an informed opinion.

    Boom must be a Dead Man Walking after this season.. one can only hope.
