He sure doesn't complain when they are playing ky getting beat and back in to win his only natty with two losses
This is frustrating as Hell for someone who realizes that teams rise and fall over time, often from year to year. But ESPN loves the controversy so LSU’s Les Miles has been asked again about SEC scheduling. His response was predictable:
“I think there needs to be a view of what is an unbridled, fair path to the championship and that mistakes in the schedule are only mistakes when they’re repeated again and again and again.
If you look at an Auburn team… they’ve played Florida and Georgia 19 times since 2000. They’ve played Florida and Georgia at the highest number…
It’s not my payscale, it’s not my job (to fix it).”
On Tuesday, South Carolina’s Steve Spurrier — another coach who feels his team has been hurt by an “unfair” schedule — said that Florida has the biggest reason to gripe about scheduling in the East because they’re stuck playing LSU each year. Today, Miles used Auburn as his example of why the scheduling format needs to change.
Ah, but isn’t a bit telling that Florida and Auburn haven’t complained about the scheduling format? Auburn is A-OK playing Georgia every year. And while Will Muschamp might not love it, the official Florida position is that their annual game with LSU is good for the league.
If Florida and Auburn are the two schools with reason to shout… and they’re not shouting, it seems a bit silly for the coaches at Carolina and LSU to use them as their examples of why things aren’t fair.
As if any scheduling format will be fair to all 14 teams every single year.
