i always understood that this was because of the money SEC teams make for home games.

everyone just likes to make fun of the argument instead of addressing the argument.  alleva is right.  perhaps uga, au, ut and bama dont complain because their permanent rival is a traditional rival.  perhaps uf doesnt complain because no other power in the east (that may just include uga) has an advantage.  the sec should just say that a few traditional rivalries are valued over equitable schedules.  of course you cannot guarantee fair scheduling as John has laid out in the past, but you can do what you can do--take the bias out of the scheduling.  unfortunately, the sec really screwed this up by adding ark and usc.  9 game round robin would be perfect.

curious, how are there more than 15 conf titles attributed over the last 15 years (UK, UF, and LSU alone add up to 15)?

its hard to wrap my head around an argument with no data.  have SEC  bball coaching salaries decreased relative to peers?  has facility spending?  has the quality of HS recruits in the S dropped?  has the quality of SEC bball recruits dropped?

using what i know best, LSU, doesnt support this, but its one team.  i know one thing that did really start happening in the 90s was going from stability to instability.  the SEC used to have many long-tenured coaches (Dale, Wimp, Nolan, Hugh).  Is this true for the rest of the country?


and, how do the few schools that are consistently good at both do it?  UF, Wisc, OhioSt, Ok, (UTx, MichSt, Or, UWV?).  is it just $$$?

Grad students can get around 25k a year stipend and tuition paid. What's the difference.
