SEC Conference Schedules released

Full SEC Conference schedule here. Texas A&M will visit South Carolina as the debut sporting event for the SEC Network on Thursday, August 28th. Florida really gets the short end with LSU and Alabama from the West.

Georgia's full schedule:

Aug. 30 - Clemson
Sept. 6 - OPEN
Sept. 13 - at South Carolina
Oct. 20 - Troy
Sept. 27 - Tennessee
Oct. 4 - Vanderbilt
Oct. 11 - at Missouri
Oct. 18 - at Arkansas

Oct. 25 - OPEN
Nov. 1 - vs. Florida (Jacksonville)
Nov. 8 - at Kentucky
Nov. 15 - Auburn

Nov. 22 - Charleston Southern
Nov 29 - Georgia Tech

Upsides? Keep the open date before Florida. Absent a huge turn around by Auburn and Arkansas, the only way Georgia's schedule would be better would be to play Mississippi State twice. Open date between Clemson and South Carolina isn't terrible, although I'd prefer the rest later in the season.

Downside? Florida has an open date before Georgia. Back to back road trips to Pago Pago and The Maldives

This is supposed to be part of a two year schedule, that is supposed to be part of a larger 12 year schedule. Presumably this means we'll have Auburn as the only West road game in 2015, with Arkansas coming to Athens.

Any thoughts?

@Mizzou and @UK in even years is bad enough. Throw in @Arkansas, too? Do not like.

One of those needs to swap, and we need to fix the double-home/double-away with Auburn and Tech at the end of the year once things settle down.

Definitely think we'll eventually get that Auburn/Tech thing worked out. Remember, this schedule is supposed to be part of a two year schedule within the 12 year cycle. I wouldn't be surprised if Auburn is back to back home to get the balance back right.
