    Exactly my point. You guys act like a contract hasn't ever been broken in the world of collegiate/professional sports. Sounds like a cop out to me.

    No, you act like UT is the only team in college football that schedules weaker teams...what is your point?

    Exactly, this is just a media ploy by Kiffin to try and take the focus away from what has happened to his program. I am not a UT fan, and would actually like to see the game simply because it would be a decent game. But, USC and UT already have a home/home agreement for sometime in the future, so kind of hard to say UT is scared to play USC. Kiffin knew this wasnt going to happen, he is just playing games with UT and the media at this point.

    Actually, that's only half true.

    You can schedule a few teams only a year out. This would be one of them.

    Lane Kiffin is a dick to do so (as if any further evidence was needed), but an SEC team is never going to play top tier teams consistently. They love beating up on each other so it makes them look good- then ignoring when teams like Cal kill them even when they're not great.

    None of what you said is true. Tennessee plays a Pac 10 team on an almost yearly basis, including Oregon this year. Alabama opened with VT recently, and this year plays Penn State in the first of a home/home. Florida plays FSU yearly and Miami every 5 years or so. Georgia plays GT yearly, plays Colorado this year, has played Az State recently, etc etc on down the list. This idea that SEC teams play fewer big out of conference games than other top programs, simply isn't based around facts. But, I know it is easier to ignore facts when trying to make a baseless argument.
