SEC Football: Does SEC Need to Play More Quality out of Conference Opponents?
The only gripe people have with the SEC is that they never play quality teams outside of the southeast. And while some schools like Alabama, LSU and Georgia don’t shy away from a good out of conference game, teams like Florida flat out refuse to play anyone good outside of their little bubble.
Does this hurt the reputation of the SEC and if it does…should teams even care?
From a national perspective, it does hurt the perception of the SEC but until teams start losing their bowl games, there’s no reason to care.
Aside from winning the past five national championships, the SEC also has an excellent track record in bowl games which makes up almost entirely for not playing tough out of conference games during the regular season.
But there is a difference in having a month to prepare for a certain team and just a week.
If the SEC would play a couple of games a few weeks into the season against quality opponents, everyone should be happy.
