    ACC vs SEC? LOL.

    BC vs ‘Bama? LOL again!

    How about ACC vs SOCON? That would give the ACC a much better chance, especially since App State and Ga Southern have moved to Sun Belt Conf.


    Great idea and hope it happens. Would love to see us paired with Tennessee. A&M would be great as well. That would certainly put fannies in the stands.


    State in Oxford is a game you want to go to. Trust me.


    Before everybody goes ga-ga over the latest greatest thing….

    fwiw….This… excerpted from The History of the Southern Conference….

    On Feb. 25, 1921, representatives from 14 of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association’s (SIAA) 30 members met at Atlanta’s Piedmont Hotel to establish the Southern Intercollegiate Conference. On hand at the inaugural meeting were officials from Alabama, Alabama Polytechnic Institute (Auburn), Clemson, Georgia, Georgia School of Technology (Georgia Tech), Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi A&M (Mississippi State), North Carolina, North Carolina State, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Polytechnic Institute (Virginia Tech) and Washington & Lee.

    Play began in the fall of 1921, and a year later, six more schools joined the fledgling league, including Tulane (which had attended the inaugural meeting but had elected not to join), Florida, Louisiana (LSU), Mississippi, South Carolina and Vanderbilt. VMI joined in 1925 and Duke was added in 1929.

    So let’s do it….Why not?

    Since we don’t have a standing SEC date… the battle of the land-grant schools seems the obvious place to start… State v. Auburn, State v. TAMU would be a good start…. I think

    This could work. There will be a few matchups that don’t go together, but some good games could arise. Land grant schools unite!
