Ole Miss Is Whats Wrong With the SEC Schedule

And, by extension, the schedules for 12-team conferences.  Nothing you haven't heard in this space before obviously, but (full schedule):

--- Only five road games

--- Don't have to play Georgia or Florida

--- Non-conference games with Memphis, Southeast Louisiana, UAB, Northern Arizona

The Rebels could be entirely average this year and still come out with an impressive record.  The eyes can deceive but with a schedule like that its great that so many college games are now televised and we can judge teams on actual performance rather than their gerrymandered schedules.  Or, at least, we hope we can.  You never know with poll voters, unfortunately.

The Ole Miss schedule wasn't suppose to have two DII teams on it this year...they tried to set up games with TCU, Colorado, and Indiana - all of those fell through - Northern Arizonia was a last minute add

And yet they could still beat the 3rd best team in the Big 12

wow, South Carolina has proven to be real. Now, what will the voters think? Will they remember that NC State played South Carolina tighter than their 4th ranked team? Will we see a 2-1 NC State team ranked ahead of a now 2-1 Ole Miss team. Never, the voters dont' have the brass and can ill afford to vote logically. Therefore, the polls will continue to be completely meaningless until voters stop ranking teams based on a last years' record and this years' hype. In other words, voters: please stop voting with your glands! In fact, I vote for computerized voting from day 1 to assure that teams are ranked based on who beat whom.
