For this Monday morning the MrSEC.com iPod has really kicked out an odd one. This forgotten Alice Cooper number has been rattling around for a long while without ever popping up in the rotation. Those who’ve never heard it might be in for a surprise.
Very late-70s sound.
“Please don’t see me ugly, babe, ’cause I know I let you down in so many ways.”
Alice Cooper- How You Gonna See Me Now (Studio Version)
The hot topic on yesterday’s SEC basketball teleconference was scheduling. Specifically how the SEC’s plan to do away with divisions will affect the league’s schedule.
The options are to move forward with a 16-game schedule as is currently the case, move to an 18-game schedule, or expand to a full round-robin 22-game league schedule.
Mike Slive seems to be in favor of the 18-game plan and, therefore, we’d put our money on that option eventually being chosen. The 16-game schedule would mean that the league simply did away with divisional standings without making any schedule changes. And the 22-game plan has few supporters.
“We feel drug through Armageddon after 16 games,” Kevin Stallings said. “I don’t think (22 games) has got a lot of traction. But I thought it was worth bringing up and discussing.” Vandy’s coach pitched the idea of a 22-game schedule at the SEC Meetings in Destin just a few weeks ago.
Auburn’s Tony Barbee is at least glad that the division standings have been dumped. “(The Big 12) before their turnover always scheduled in the North-South football conference kind of way, but they didn’t advertise it in terms of two separate divisions. I think the perception has been that we’ve had two separate leagues and that hasn’t helped the league as a whole.”
