Latest on tweaking the SEC schedule

During my travels around the league this spring, I’ve had several administrators at schools tell me they didn’t see any way the SEC schedule would be changed next season in order to give Alabama some relief from having to face six teams coming off byes.

Two different athletic directors told me they flatly refused to move games.

Nonetheless, SEC associate commissioner Charles Bloom says the league has not closed the door on being able to make a couple of changes for the 2010 season and is still exploring different scenarios.
