LSU AD: SEC ADs will never vote to change current schedule format


Can you hear that sound? That’s the SEC scheduling debate heating up for 2015 and beyond. It’s a year-round debate heightened during the offseason and muted during the season.

Count LSU athletic director Joe Alleva as one who thinks the current eight-game format consisting of six divisional opponents, one permanent cross-divisional opponent and one rotating cross-divisional opponent will not change, according to The Advocate. LSU, backed by Alleva and Les Miles, have barked about the permanent cross-divisional rivalry for the last few years. LSU has to play Florida every year.

“The ADs will not change their votes,” Alleva said. “The only hope for change is for the (SEC) presidents to realize it’s not an equitable schedule. They have to have the foresight and wisdom to change it.”

Furthermore, Alleva continues to say he’s against a nine-game league schedule, citing it will mean even more losses for certain teams, and he still stands firm against the permanent cross-divisional rivalry game.

SEC ADs met in Atlanta last Wednesday to discuss future scheduling, and Georgia AD Greg McGarity said the 2015 schedule should precede May’s spring meetings.

Get your lockers

Also, according to LSU’s team website, old lockers from 1996-2013 seasons will be for sale to the public as part of a fundraising effort for $3,950 each. Nearly 100 older lockers will be available due to the Tiger Stadium renovation.

Can you imagine one of those in your living room? Now, that would be sweet.
