Future football schedules

When Keith Olbermann was anchoring for ESPN he once reported an injured player’s status as “day to day.” He followed that up with, “Aren’t we all day to day?”

So it’s with an aren’t we all day to day thought that I wonder if I’ll cover another college football game at Georgia or South Carolina. It’s kind of hard to make plans nine and 11 years down the road, but those are the next scheduled visits for Ole Miss to play those SEC East foes.

The new format will expose SEC players to more of their cross-division brethren over a four-year period, but they won’t necessarily get the experience of seeing that school’s campus and experiencing its traditions.

That’s part of the price of growth. It’s kind of hard to fit all of the Eastern Division teams in that four-year window while retaining one permanent Eastern Division opponent which, for Ole Miss, is Vanderbilt.

Here’s what the East rotation looks like for Ole Miss through 2025: 2014 vs. Tennessee; 2015 at Florida; 2016 vs. Georgia; 2017 at Kentucky; 2018 vs. South Carolina; 2019 at Missouri; 2020 vs. Florida; 2021 at Tennessee; 2022 vs. Kentucky; 2023 at Georgia; 2024 vs. Missouri; 2025 at South Carolina. (Permanent opponents in 2014: Home – Alabama, Auburn, Mississippi State; Away – Arkansas, LSU, Texas A&M, Vanderbilt. Sites alternate home and away through 2025.)

    Interesting to see the Gators added to there future schedule and along with the other teams on schedule I don’t see Ole Miss out of the wilderness anytime soon.

      Probably won’t be out of that wilderness any time soon. At least we have Muschamp and the gators in the wilderness with us to keep us company. Outside of Orgeron, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a coach do less with more than Muschamp…

        Muschamp and Gators get beat by Georgia, Muschamp could get the same treatment that ole miss gave Orgeron

          I’m suprised they have given him this long. My bet is another season like last year and he will be looking for employment elsewhere. As long as Freeze holds steady I think he will beat OM for a while. FL has a tradition of not just winning but competing in the top 10. It will be a long time before that happens in a Mississippi school, even though one coach said he came to Starkville to “win championships”. Now that was funny!
