Tennessee will play a home football game against Troy in 2020.

Brett McMurphy reported the news on Twitter Thursday, and it’s just the latest sign of how mighty the SEC is as a conference.

Congratulations to Tennessee. They’re a premiere college football program, and they’re out here scheduling Troy. (RELATED: Georgia And Oklahoma Schedule Home And Home Football Series)

What an incredible decision from the SEC, the Volunteers and everybody else involved. Nothing says championship caliber program like burning a non-conference game against Troy.

This is just classic SEC garbage. Schedule a bunch of weak teams, win a bunch of games against bad competition, beat bad SEC teams and then brag to the world about how great and deep the conference is.

I’ve seen it play out time and time again.

I’ll start taking the SEC seriously when it takes itself seriously. No conference that respects itself would allow four non-conference games, and it certainly wouldn’t allow them against teams like Troy.

The guys up in the Big 10 are playing tough teams week after week and we get no credit. We’re real men and we don’t feel the need to stack the stat sheet with bad games.

Clearly, the ole mighty SEC and Volunteers program feel differently.

Have fun Tennessee on another mediocre season. Should be fun to watch all the spin that comes afterward.
