In what we call the “3-6-6” format, there would be no divisions, no pods, no subgroups of any kind within the conference. What you’d have instead is each team having three permanent “rivalry” games each year, and six rotating opponents (six in even years and the other six in odd years). That means you’d play nine conference games (up from the SEC’s current eight), but you’d also

-Maintain your team’s most important rivalry games
-Face EVERY conference team in a 24-month span
-Have EVERY conference team come to your home stadium in the span of four years

https://www.ar15.com/media/mediaFiles/82036/Screenshot_2022-05-16_101907-2385903.png


That'd be a solid setup for the immediate and future scheduling.  Wonder why Kentucky is OU's rival?


I would guess it is due to not having a long history with anyone in particular in the rest of the SEC.  I guess Arkansas is the closest one, but they are full.  I would be fine changing SC-Florida to OU-Florida, but I will say I don't know the history of that game other than Spurrier.

Don’t look too much into it. That graphic has Texas #1 rival as Ark, which is dumb. It’s OU, then Ark, then ATM.


The “rivals” are list alphabetically….not in rivalry preference

SEC should get Hard Times or Robertsons brand deal going for beef jerky

Buccee’s is owned by an Aggie, IIRC. They have awesome beef jerky.


Buc-ees has decent jerky but Hard Times, Robertsons, and No Man's Land are all far superior in the jerky world

I don’t eat a ton of Jerky, so I have to assume you are correct.


Reject commercial jerky.  Embrace homemade Biltomg.

Alabama football coach Nick Saban says Texas A&M 'bought every player,' questions whether current NIL model is sustainable

Alabama coach Nick Saban singled out Texas A&M for "buying" its top-ranked signing class and threw a spotlight on the unintended effect of name, image and likeness rights on recruiting during an event with local business leaders Wednesday night in Birmingham.

"I mean, we were second in recruiting last year," Saban told the audience. "A&M was first. A&M bought every player on their team -- made a deal for name, image, likeness. We didn't buy one player, all right? But I don't know if we're gonna be able to sustain that in the future because more and more people are doing it. It's tough."

I can see issues with something like that, because the rotating schedules can make for very unbalanced comparisons.  First projected preaseason rankings I found shows USC, Oregon and Utah as the best teams in the PAC 12 this year.  It looks like Washington only plays one of the three.  Record against common opponents (including head-to-head) would be a better metric for the first criteria.

To be fair, division championships also have the same issue, and I've always thought only division games should count towards determining that.

Saban accused Jacksonville State of buying that #1 recruit also and now Deion is riled up and his reply appears to have some racial overtones.

Saban and Primetime going to be throwing hands on the Aflac set.

We never bought anybody.  No rules were broken.
He's arguing like those are mutually exclusive.  I don't think anyone is saying they cheated.

You mean the one that was contacted 2 weeks after he entered the portal? The one who is going to Texas? His WR coach was hired at Texas

As for Jimbo, he doesn’t “know” how those collectives for NIL worked, but he does know they did it the right way……… I don’t know but I know. Might as well just admit it at this point…….

I don't know?  I recall an ESPN article about such things.  

I'm pretty sure most big NIL deals are actually breaking NCAA rules, as I hadn't been seeing any millionaire college players in like commercials or anything.  but NCAA ain't enforcing anything and don't expect them to

As for Jimbo, he doesn’t “know” how those collectives for NIL worked, but he does know they did it the right way……… I don’t know but I know. Might as well just admit it at this point…….


I don't know?  I recall an ESPN article about such things.  

I'm pretty sure most big NIL deals are actually breaking NCAA rules, as I hadn't been seeing any millionaire college players in like commercials or anything.  but NCAA ain't enforcing anything and don't expect them to


No, but where there’s a dollar, you can be willing to bet that Congress is ready willing and able to step in……….. they are gonna tax and regulate the hell out of it till the big guy gets his 10% or more……..

Setting up excuses for going 9-3 this year


Saban accused Jacksonville State of buying that #1 recruit also and now Deion is riled up and his reply appears to have some racial overtones.

Saban and Primetime going to be throwing hands on the Aflac set.

Wasn't Saban/Bama accused of tampering for a WR from the ACC?

You mean the one that was contacted 2 weeks after he entered the portal? The one who is going to Texas? His WR coach was hired at Texas

As for Jimbo, he doesn’t “know” how those collectives for NIL worked, but he does know they did it the right way……… I don’t know but I know. Might as well just admit it at this point…….

Yep.  This honestly got implemented without guidelines so teams are taking advantage of it.  It’s probably not going to be sustainable because I don’t see business owners dropping big cash on a player that could transfer after that happens a few times.  Pay disparity is also going to give some programs fits when an offensive guard or tackle gets payed far less money than other positions.  A couple of higher paid players giving some attitude could set a team into a downward spiral.

I think the NCAA is so weak at this point that a big SEC or Big 10 school gives them the finger if they try to enforce something.  When that happens the NCAA is probably officially done.

Its already been happening.  Schools that self report get in trouble and schools that don't and then deny deny deny walk free.

Don’t think anyone is saying Bama didn’t commit violations…….. Mike DuBose was known for it, and caused a lot of trouble and paid the price for bidding on Albert Means, unlike the 3 other schools who did the same…….. shouldn’t have done it and he knew it……and I was glad they got rid of the two faces SOB

But Fisher claiming he knew nothing about how the “collectives” operated but in the same breath said he knew they did things the right way is also humorous…….

Why? He doesn’t need to know all the ins and outs and the legalities. He just needs to be assured it’s being done right. And I’m sure he’s asked that question to the AD and or person in charge of NIL at A&M.

That’s why he kept saying the government has to get involved. There are Texas laws that govern how this has to be done and it really needs parity from state to state. We don’t need this to turn into a money game. And unfortunately that’s where this is right now.
