Alabama has Virginia Tech to open, which is kind of a step down from their recent out-of-conference teams. Wow, Florida is actually playing Miami. Miami hasn't been much lately, but Florida hasn't played a decent out-of-conference game in a long time to my memory.
Wow,. TAMU has an easy ass schedule next year. At home against Bama and at LSU, is the only games that they should bother with. At Ole Miss and at Arkansas might be trap games, depending on how much those teams improve, but damn. expect them to end up with one loss next year and possibly playing for a title.
Georgia plays at Clemson Week 2. Talk about a big out-of-conference game. Other than that though, all big games are at home, minus the usual rivalry cocktail party against Florida.

If anyone had doubts about the BCS system bashing, well... here you go.
Nebraska was one of the original offenders when it came to listing future conference championship games on their schedules, though they stopped doing it a while back. Damn that's always irritated me. It's already tacky enough that the Michigan football website has adopted the practice (and considering we haven't won a conference title outright since 2003, it looks extra stupid). Guess who else has the CCG listed on their 2013-2014 schedule? Penn State. Wile E. Coyote, super genius.
Easy access, all there, so I don't know which teams are being cocky.
Vols tacklers look like they're reaching for a flag on his hip
I missed this the other day.

Hoo boy. I think this is why the Heisman Trust is a bit leery of handing out hardware to freshmen.
Hahaha... hahah.. ha.
Needs more yolo and swag hashtags.
Eddie Lacy declared for the draft. I'm just not so sure he's going to be as effective as people might think. One things people forget is in the past few years, Alabama has had one of the best offensive lines in the country. See what Mark Ingram is doing in New Orleans right now as a former Heisman winner.
Knowing that the NCAA frowns upon all forms of gambling, and that they're flexing their muscle as much as ever, it's just a dumb idea to broadcast your immature behavior to the world when you're so prominently in the national spotlight. I remember a well-to-do Eric Crouch getting hounded (and suspended) over a plane ride and a ham sandwich, which in total came to something like $20.
Big Ten to reconsider division names
Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany said his league will consider replacing the Legends and Leaders division names in 2014.
A decision could be made by June.
When deciding on division names in December 2010, Delany said the Big Ten "didn't have great options."
"We weren't going to go with 'Bo or Woody,' 'Black or Blue,' or 'Plains or Lakes,' " Delany said. "Obviously we got some acceptance [with Legends and Leaders], but not as much as we would have liked."
As a conference, we've gotten really good at making things a lot fucking harder than they need to be.
What was so wrong with "East" and "West" anyway?
I have no problem with this configuration:
Oh, but that'd be too easy. Which is why the Eye of Sauron™ layout is apparently still under consideration too.
Fast-forward to June: "The Big Ten Conference is pleased to announce the new & improved Iris and Sclera divisions."
