Interesting read from a near Canadian perspective: Football Outside of the Big Ten - The SEC - The Rivalry, Esq.
A tip of the hat to Georgia for the testicular fortitude that they showed in their scheduling. The trip to Atlanta is an every-other-year event. Adding a home game with Arizona State and a game in Stillwater is bravery.

I know of no other BCS conference team that has scheduled so aggressively. I hope that they succeed if only to highlight the cowardice of teams that can't even manage a single game against a BCS opponent (Texas, Wisconsin) or are so afraid of airplanes that they schedule four non-conference home games with only one BCS opponent (Florida, Penn State).
