SEC Schedules In Football And Basketball Set To Be Adopted

By on June 1st, 2012

Expansion, playoffs, conference re-alignment and scheduling dominated the Thursday agenda at the SEC meetings going on in Destin, Florida.

SEC Commissioner Mike Slive is on record as saying that while other leagues might be looking to re-align or expand, the SEC is happy with 14 teams at this time.

It also looks like the league will adopt a 6-1-1 format for its permanent football schedule.   Teams in a division would play all division opponents, one every year opponent from the opposing division and one other rotating opponent from the other division.

Basketball is set to adopt a schedule format as well that will have single games against eight league opponents, a home and home series with one permanent opponent and two games with four rotating opponents.

There will also be discussion today about a possible stand alone SEC Television Network which seems to be closer to being adopted.
