    It is probably good that the SEC is shelving SEC expansion talk, playoff expansion talk and schedule changes.

    It is detrimental to the SEC to add a ninth SEC game until the playoff format is expanded. The playoff format should be expanded to 8 teams. Seeing the top 4 teams get byes and a week off is a tremendous (too big) advantage. There are not 12 teams with a real chance to win (this is not basketball yet). 12 teams is strictly a money grab. 8 should be the number. That being said the number will be 12 ($$$). No automatic bids is also the way to go. Earn your way in just like now.

    When the SEC does expand it would be to UGA's benefit to leave Clemson out. Clemson really doesn't bring anything to table that warrants inclusion. No big TV markets. No national fan following. It is a smaller school that found success in an inferior conference primarily because of 2 CFB HOF QB's that are from GA. Leaving Clemson out helps UGA recruiting in GA. Adding them in hurts UGA recruiting in GA with some (more with Clemson in the SEC?) highly rated players choosing Clemson. You know SCe doesn't want Clemson in the SEC as they lose their "playing in the SEC" recruiting advantage in SC, NC and GA. With 2 against are they kept out? Having aTm (and ARK?) against TX didn't seem to matter.

    NIL is total chaos and needs to be fixed. Sankey, as leader of the most influential conference, needs to take the lead and proactively come up with some recommendations. That's what leaders do. Sitting back and throwing up your hands is not the answer.
