The SEC meetings finished up in Destin, Florida on Friday with little resolution on future football schedules. The league plans to continue with eight conference games a year through 2015. Tide coach Nick Saban still believes the SEC should play at least nine league games a season. He continued to talk up a nine game schedule during a speech Thursday night in Mobile. In a vote of SEC coaches in Destin, Saban was the only one who wanted to see more league games.
"I think it's important for the players to be able to play every team in our league. It is a league, so how can it be a league if you don't play teams in your league. So if you have a bigger league, you have to play more games. Look, I understand I'm the only vote. I'm the hillbilly from West Virginia, Saban chuckles, so I'm not very smart, and everybody recognizes that. So I'm the only one who thinks like I think."
