3 SEC teams in the same year? I guess they need the cash. I’d bet they’ll get about $2.7M between the 3…
3 SEC teams for Middle Tennessee should be three easy wins for Middle Tennessee!
MTSU has beaten Vandy and Georgia Tech in past years… they’re not chump change. Credit to them stepping up to a schedule befitting a Big XII team! Heh.
If every team in the BigXII played in the SECLeast and scheduled an FCS and two low tier Sun belt or MAC teams they would all be 8-4, 7-5, too.
THere is no truth to this comment, just ask the teams below from the Big-12.
Kansas lost to Ohio
Iowa St lost to N.Iowa
Oklahoma St lost to C. Michigan
Only two SEC East teams played Mac this year, Mizz had E.Michigan which is going bowling & Tenn had Ohio which had a great game in the Mac Championship against W.Mich.
yes, the Blue Raiders are to be taken seriously by any P5 team…
You want truth or stats or records in your arguments? About time. Just try and apply when talking about all conferences, not just the SEC. I do every time. As I post about all schedules. Like true fans do.
The only reason I bring up the SEC is because people like you ( & your alternate personalities) are always bashing them, once again you had to make some bone-ass remark calling the SEC (SECLeast).
The truth is, you only use stats & records when its applies to you & negative about the SEC.
I am not sure how many times & on multiple articles you had to post the SEC OOC record this year to make sure that all saw it, what a shame. True fan……lmao, you’re just a complainer.
I use stats and previous, current or future schedules to illustrate my points. always, except for the first post because now it is fun to get a rise out of SEC Trailer Trash boys. You just don’t like it when it does not fit your narrative.
So that is why you started with the insults about, “If the SEC was easy, it would be called your mom.”
This is why now I am going to bash you at every opportunity because it takes no effort and stats and records don’t lie.
Show me one post that says I said anything about your mom, I am not a name caller nor do I even talk like that.
You have me confused with someone else & on that note I am done replying to your childish insults, name calling & add-ons that you try to make yourself sound funny. Next time before you blame someone for talking about your mom, GET THE PERSON RIGHT!
As a Georgia fan, the 2018 schedule is disappointing. Middle Tennessee is a respectable G5 opponent and the budget dictates 2 guarantee games per year at home, but UMass and Murray State are terrible games. Georgia plays two P5 OOC games most years (GT every year, Clemson in 2013 and 14, UNC in 16, Notre Dame in 17 and 19), but very disappointed about 2018 – I had hoped the last slot would be a quality nuetral site game.
Georgia could be in real trouble if UMass decides to drop back to FCS.
UMass will absolutely still be FBS in 2018. They have 11 games with FBS competition already scheduled. They’ve done their best to fill a schedule, and can pick up a 12th with any regional FCS team. 2019 might get tougher, but they already have 6 FBS contracted, and a game with FCS Maine. What saves them is (1) Bob Kraft likes having UMass games bring folks to Gillette, and then shop at Patriot Place, (2) they have a decent basketball program, and (3) they have the best college marching band in the northeastern US. Clearly, they are hoping the G5’s get raided, because they’d be a great fit in the American to replace schools lost.
David – good information. My original post was too negative about UMass. It’s really the combination of 2 G5 games plus an FCS game that I don’t like on Georgia’s schedule. UMass would be a good fit in the American, which could use another strong basketball program. I do think it is very difficult to stay independent in the long run these days.
I really like the fact that Georgia usually plays 2 P5 OOC’s each year. One of the very few teams in ANY conference that do that.
MTSU can take any P5 school. They gave Alabama a scare both times they played them as well.
Quite the scares, never the less, M. Tenn is a good football team

3 straight SEC West road games for Auburn…@ LSU, @ Arkansas & @Texas A&M. That’s harsh
Texas A&M – the refs need to be impartial – instead the home games played in Texas are determined by the referees…needs addressed before 2017 season, as it is, its beneath SEC sportsmanship and honor.
I would guess CBS starts out 2017 in either Atlanta or Arlington but ESPN sure would love both of them
I hope abc takes florida vs Michigan
Sissy Tennessee playing MORE sissy schools. WHAT A HOOT.
Probably ought to put an asterisk by the Florida/LSU game – “if played”.
Why does Alabama not ever play some of the tougher teams in the sec eastern division, like Georgia and Florida
It goes by a rotation. Bama will play UGA in 2020, Florida in 2021
Kentucky will play for sec championship in20017!!!
Your answer shows real ingleeitencl.
better than……EKU for sure
coming from a vols fan… this should be an easy win for Toledo
Not sure about that, Toledo is a pretty strong team now but not sure what they will look like in 3 years.
Leave it to puke orange fan to say something totally against UK for a game THREE YEARS FROM NOW!
How n the hell does a school get 3 FBS games (aside from the obvious Hawaii rule)? Sam Houston had theirs bought out so they don’t have a single one in 2016, share the wealth.
Of course Kentucky will schedule UTM, but why will UK not schedule Marshall?
U T Marin is Comming up in the ranks they have upgraded there place and are on track to becoming a FCS Powehouse.They also knocked off AAC Conference Member Mempis a couple of Years ago…
U T Martin way to go. Skyhaws..
Keep ☝ soaring..
From my time there; always the Pacers (a pace setting school).
