There's the Oct. 29 suggestion, in which Florida and LSU play on Oct. 29 because Florida switches to play Georgia on Oct. 22, its open date.
"Oh no, they don't think like that", he said.
This is what should have happened with the Florida-LSU game.
Hurricane Matthew has come and gone, but the controversy it brought to the SEC hasn't blown over.
McElwain said the reaction among the UF players was mixed when they were informed last Thursday the game had been postponed.
Matthew skirted the Florida coast and never came ashore, largely sparing Gainesville, which is located 75 miles inland.
Consider this: There are four Division I football-playing universities in a roughly 150-mile radius covering north and central Florida: Florida, UCF, Bethune-Cookman and Jacksonville University.
McElwain deferred questions about rescheduling the game to the SEC, which will make the final call.
If the game is not played at all, it has the potential to cause some embarrassment for the SEC as it pertains to its championship game. However, Alleva took a stand not only for LSU but likewise for local businesses who would be tremendously hurt by sacrificing a home game in Tiger Stadium.
McElwain sat his offensive tackle down and had him watch Harris' tape against him in last year's 21-3 win. Okay? That, and, you know what, if those scenarios play out, maybe there has to be other ways of looking who the division champions are, maybe only look at divisional play.
"Our fans, and this city, deserve to have a home game on that day", Alleva said.
UKIP's Woolfe offers hand of friendship to fellow MEP after punch-up
Hookem warned that if he was disciplined as a result of the party investigation, Woolfe would also have to face action. A friend added: "In the meeting, Mr Woolfe told Mike that they should go outside and deal with this man on man".
One other potential scenario that had been bandied about, moving the SEC championship game from December 3 to December 10 and playing the LSU-Florida game on the vacated date, is labeled as "highly, highly unlikely" by McMurphy, specifically because the College Football Playoff committee will not hold off on releasing the final standings that will determine the four semifinalists.
The Gators play Missouri (2-3, 0-2) on Saturday.
"Through my conversations with our commissioner, and the SEC office", Hart told 247Sports, "I remain very confident that that game will be played, the LSU-Florida game".
Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley got the brunt of the criticism, with some saying he slow-played SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey so the banged-up Gators could get extra time to heal.
If the Florida-LSU game is going to be played, it won't be at the expense of the Georgia-Florida game.
The Tigers could theoretically travel to Gainesville that weekend, but Alleva asserted, "I'm not in favor of playing a game on that day unless Alabama also plays a game on that day". "We are going to have a home game on November 19".
"We've got everything we want in front of us", he said.
"One thing we're going to hold very firm on is that we have a home game on November 19 and we're going to have a home game on November 19", Alleva told LSU media on Monday.
For all the wind coming from that hurricane, there has been quite a bit since coming from the LSU and Florida administrations, media contingents, and fan bases. The game that affected us the most was the Tigers vs the Gators. "You've got to turn it into a positive".
"They're good listeners", he said.
Georgia State moves its November 12 home game with Louisiana Monroe to November 26, which is an open date for both teams. It has led LSU Athletic Director Joe Alleva to state, rationally, that maybe the league ought to change the rules on the fly for SEC championship game qualification, and go by division records only instead of its current tiebreaker, overall conference winning percentage.
