No 'perfect solution': SEC coaches divided over scheduling format

AUBURN, Ala. — Wednesday revealed just how much variation of opinion exists between coaches in the Southeastern Conference in regards to scheduling. On Sunday, the SEC announced it would remain with an eight-game slate in a 6-1-1 format: six games against divisional opponents, one against a permanent rival in the other division and one versus a rotating cross-divisional foe. This decision kept both the Auburn/Georgia and Alabama/Tennessee rivalries intact.
