SEC Football Schedule Remains at 8 Conference Games

 

Today, the SEC announced its decision to remain at 8 conference football games for each university.  With the current format still in place, Kentucky’s schedule will see hardly any change at all.  UK will continue to play all six East division opponents, one West division opponent on a rotation, and the West division rival, Miss. St.  Worries of having to drop Louisville from UK’s football schedule are no more, at least for now.  Also, the SEC will now require its teams to play at least one other non-conference BCS school, which for Kentucky, will be the Cardinals.

    So Auburn and Missouri switched divisions according to the graphic, but no mention of that?

      That’s what I was looking at. Also, I think it makes much more sense geographically. Plus, it kind of balances out the powers.

    It’s just a bad graphic according to the SEC website. You get what you pay for…..

    The big winner here… Mississippi State.

    That is total bs. The league should go to nine games with no permanent opposite division opponent. All in the name of protecting Georgia-Auburn and Tennesseee-Alabama. What about protecting UK-Tennessee and secondarily UK-Vanderbilt in basketball…oh, that is right, nothing matters except those two precious football rivalries. Screw the SEC. Biggest mistake UK ever made was not going to the ACC in late 70s early 80s before Georgia Tech took the available slot.

      Get in the back seat and shut up. You are lucky we even let you stay in the conference.

      You stay out of our business and then Bama, UF, UGA, and Tennessee stay out of yours in basketball. Thats the deal.

    Mississippi State must be happy today. Uk should be kicked out of the SEC and placed in the sun belt where maybe they can get a few wins, if they can get by WKU

      You should be placed in Outer Mongolia.

      I don’t always troll KSR, but when I do, I make damn sure it’s a football post. It’s the only thing we can talk shit about, ever since Cal made Pitino his bitch. Who knows, one day maybe we can take the lead in the all-time series in football.

      Modern era UL 12 UK 8.



    • That's what little brothers use

      What is the “modern era” and who decided when it began? Did UofLoL’s “modern basketball era” begin in ’80, ’86, or 2013???

      We’ve played 26 times – UK has won 14 of those times. Bending stats is what losers do.

      The modern era is anytime after 1924



    • This is where UK fans lose all credibility.
      10:39 pm April 27, 2014 Permalink

      The first six games took place from 1912-1924. The rest took place from 1994 on. If you can’t figure out which one is the modern era, you’re dumber than a box of rocks.

      So those wins were vacated? They no count no more? Does our 1951 Co-Champ title still count, or is that too old?



    • Those wins from the 1910's certainly are meaningful now!

      I’m certain Donald Sterling would have loved that era, back when powerhouses like Harvard and Yale ran the show and no black people played the game.

    “Tradition matters in the SEC, and there is no denying that tradition was a significant factor in this decision because it protects several long-standing cross-division conference rivalries,” said Slive. “It has been a hallmark of the SEC over our history to be able to make continued progress while also maintaining traditions important to our institutions.”

    BS. above quote from SEC Commissioner Slive. The SEC is not a 14 school equal partner deal except for $. That is how 10 schools stay quiet. It is all about the two football rivalries Georgia-Auburn and Tennessee-Alabama. If the SEC really cared about athletics, not just football, UK’s basketball permanent opponent would be Tennessee. If not Tennessee, then Vanderbilt. We have no long term rivalry with anybody else in the league. Tradition….only matters for those two football games…the rest of us can go to H and/or take the $$ and shut it.



    • I predict UK will win a single SEC game this year.
      10:43 pm April 27, 2014 Permalink

      4 wins overall. Defense looked awful in the Spring game, and the running game alone isn’t going to catch teams in the SEC with quality run defenses.



    • Hey

      That’s an improvement. Started from the bottom……



  11. GO UK CATS!!

    I am very very happy the SEC announced its decision to remain at 8 conference football games for each university. UK has always played one of the most brutal football schedules in the country year after year.

    I look at basketball in the state of KENTUCKY. It keeps growing. UK and Louisville make the NCAA basketball tournament almost every year. There has even been teams like EKU, WKU, Morehead State and Murray State making frequent visits in recent years. All is very exciting for basketball fans in the entire State of Kentucky.

    In football, the rivalry against Louisville must end if more Kentuckians wants to go to a football bowl game every year. Because the winner usually goes to a bowl game and the loser stays stays home. It’s time to play somebody different and out of state in football instead of Louisville. UK needs to play a bottom celler team like North Carolina State or Virginia. If UK wants to go to a bowl game every year, they must change their competition.



    • Another way to look at it

      How about we just improve? The UK/UL game is won by whoever has the best coaches and talent. We beat them four straight because we did, then they have beaten us for three because they have. We now both have great coaches and our talent is greatly improving. One more great recruiting class and we will overtake them. If we expect to compete in the SEC, there is no reason we can’t beat them most of the time.

    Lol the only reason you beat us it because of kragthorpe, and if stoops was so great then why did he go 2-10 and still lose to Louisville? If I remember correctly charle strong came his first year at Louisville and beat Kentucky and went 7-6 and won a bowl in his first year,face it Kentucky will always be Kentuckys whipping boy in the SEC and since petrino came back Kentucky won’t be beating Louisville in a while.
