Question: If they play S. Carolina every hear, home-and-home... does that mean they only play one other SEC East team every two years also?
You have seven other SEC East teams to play, other than S. Carolina.
Therefore it would take 14 years to have played the other seven SEC East teams, home-and-home.
Many players will go through A&M never playing Georgia or Florida. A coach could coach an entire career there and never play all of those SEC East teams. He'd have to stay almost a decade and a half.
Generally speaking, you are effectively a member of half of the SEC Conference, + One.
The other of the two cross-division games amounts to the sporadic frequency of a non-conference game spread out over time. Texas might play USC home-and-home every 14 years. What's the difference in playing Georgia home-and-home every 14 years? Of course there's the conference championship game where you might meet one of those cross-div teams, but you'd need to win your Half-a-Conference title to do that.
