Assuming the 16 teams are divided into four pods, is it contemplated that each team play the other three members of its pod plus six other SEC teams from the other three pods?

Assuming the answer is yes and given the fact that each of the four pods will have two "blue chip" programs and two "other programs, i.e. Florida and Georgia in one, Alabama and Auburn in another and aTm and LSU in the third, each non-blue blood SEC team would play five "very good" teams each season (the two bloods in its pod plus one of the two blue bloods in each of the other three pods.

Looking at Mizzou, the Tiger's schedule would likely be substantially more difficult, i.e. the other three members of its pod (which would include blue boods UT and OU) plus three more blue bloods (one from each of the other three pods).

               No, it’s because A&M has been viewed as an upper tier - alwaysright MU - 8/23 07:01:27
