Blame Realignment. Or Derek Dooley. Or maybe Will Muschamp. Phil Fulmer? Actually, maybe it’s Lane Kiffin. Yeah, let’s just blame him.
Whoever’s to blame, history will likely be made in next year’s Tennessee-Florida game, and unfortunately it’s not the good kind. That’s because for the first time since CBS picked up SEC broadcasting rights back in 1996, it appears...
