Scheduling philosophies: McGarity targets Big 10

“I think over the long haul if you really looked at the schedules of teams that advanced from BCS conferences, they’re playing schedules that probably have one difficult non-conference opponent. Then maybe every now and then have one other difficult game. Now granted maybe the games aren’t as exciting, but at the end of the day if you’re trying to make it to Atlanta, you wanna create the best schedule that allows you to get to Atlanta.”

- Georgia AD Greg McGarity in September, The Macon Telegraph.
Since I believe Greg McGarity to be a man of his word, now as well as in September, and since he told Dawgs 247 this week that he's working to schedule "a home-and-home with a Big Ten or Midwestern school that has a rich tradition," and that Ohio State, Michigan, Penn State and Notre Dame have all been contacted, I can only reach one of two conclusions:
  1. He thinks the Big 10 and Notre Dame both suck.
  2. He thinks Georgia tech is about to suck even worse.
I concur. But maybe let's not add Ohio State.
