SEC Schedule Breakdown

The home office in Birmingham released the 2011 football schedule today, which you may find here.  After briefly skimming, you may also commence the besmirchment of your rival's, or team you just hate, weak-ass schedule.  For those who have better things to do than read through a list of football games to be played six months from now (NOT GONNA MAKE IT THAT LONG), I have taken the time to organize and provide you with a brief summary of who is playing who.  Or whom.  Never learned that rule.
