    and one Big 10 game cancelled.
    Bama v LSU is postponed. The good news is that bama did have an open date before the SEC Championship game. However we are playing the makeup game with LSU that weekend. Haven't seen the rescheduled dates.

      Someone today said that they'd heard Alabama and Lsu may just scratch their game all together this year because there's no where to put it. The significance for us is that, supposedly, should we have the East wrapped up by the time we finish playing tennessee, they may cancel our game with Lsu as well, so neither team would be playing the week before Atl. No idea if it's true or not, but it would actually make sense. A meaningless rescheduled game against a team that our Atlanta opponent didn't have to play. We don't seem to ever get these types of breaks, so I'm a bit skeptical. But just passing along what this person heard.

        If they play games on the 19th, they could move the SECC game to Christmas Day on Friday the 25th, since the Rose/Sugar are played a week later. Teams could arrive into ATL late on Thursday, you won't have all the pregame fanfare, luncheon, etc. that you normally would in ATL on the day before.

        Something good on TV to watch on Christmas Day instead of the constant rerun of that damnable Christmas Story movie.

          I'm always doubted whether we're going to play the West games. if it comes down to it the East versus East and West versus West games must be played.

          this is why the conference wanted to maintain control.

          I like the idea of cancelling LSU if we have the East wrapped up. It seems Alabama always catches the breaks while Florida misses them (or takes the high road).

          The Big10 is already playing less games than us so Alabama and Florida playing one less shouldn't be an issue w/National conversations.

            SEC adds extra game week for potential makeup contests
            The SEC has done a solid job of accounting for potential disruptions, as it built in an extra week between the end of the regular season and the conference title game on Dec. 19 so that teams could make up a game if needed. And according to Texas A&M athletic director Ross Bjork, the league’s athletic directors have decided to add a second potential makeup date.

            “We added December 19th as a playing date — we decided on that yesterday at our AD meeting,” Bjork said Wednesday, per CBS Sports’ Dennis Dodd. “So we now have six Saturdays to work with.”

            That means the SEC will likely be playing multiple games on the same day as the conference title game, which is set for Dec. 19. There are a whole lot of games to make up, and Missouri has already had two games postponed this season. So the Tigers could face Florida on Dec. 12 and Georgia on Dec. 19. Based on how things have gone this week, it seems possible that other SEC teams will also have two games to make up.

            ?
            Am I reading this the wrong way? Didn't we already play Mizzou on Halloween?

              No, you're reading it correctly.

              It is written wrong, bigly. I then C/P'd it wrong, bigly.

              We were scheduled to play Mizzou Oct 24th but it got moved to Oct 31st.

              The author may be mixing up their "tigers" as we face LSU Dec 12th.

              The real question is when does 'bama play LSU since we are playing LSU the week before the title game.

              As LSU is a west opponent of 'bama, we should just sacrafice it, let 'bama have it....

              in all honesty they should. But they won't.

              I'd really rather run up a score on them, but we could use an off week...

              Yeah, as it stands now I'd be amazed if a game had to be canceled they would cancel LSU v Bama and still play LSU v UF. I'm really wondering how much more shutdowns the league can absorb before they shut down the whole shebang.

              As long as we don't lose anymore games before LSU then that game is not needed. Bama would also have to lose two to be knocked out of the SEC Championship game though I think they should be made to play their west opponents. And no way the should have a bye week if we don't.

                  G'Damn these libtards screwing the most important thing (college football) in our lives for a few "sniffles". We should play all games as scheduled regardless of silly things like a few geriatrics dying. Besides if grandaddy dies, I'm gonna get his vintage truck sooner.
