Even during a pandemic, the SEC is gonna SEC.

According to Pete Thamel, yesterday’s conference call between the league’s coaches got heated after several coaches complained about the lack of transparency in how the additional two games were chosen for each squad.

Let’s look at the added opponents for each team and guess which coaches were upset.

ALABAMA

Added opponents: vs. Kentucky, at Missouri

ARKANSAS
Previously scheduled: vs. Tennessee, at Missouri
Added opponents: vs. Georgia, at Florida

AUBURN

    Ark and Mizzou upset. Hopefully Stoops said something about having to go to Bama. We should get them at home and Ole Miss away. Last time we played Bama it was there.

    Tennessee and TAMU were given tough draws, too.

    I’m guessing Mizzou and UT. Maybe TA&M and Vandy; and yeah, we’ve got a gripe with Alabama away.

    Maybe someone clicked the “Record” button on the call and will leak it.

    What is “preciously scheduled” referring to?

    Pete Thameltoe is sure getting a lot of pub on KSR, lately.
    Guess everybody else has forgotten what a rotten deal he pulled on Eric Bledsoe. I sure as hell have not !
