On Sunday the SEC announced its new scheduling policy, and while the conference is staying with its eight-game conference schedule, it's also now requiring each school to schedule at least one non-conference game against a team from the ACC, Big 12, Pac-12 or Big Ten each season.
It was news that drew the typical sarcastic responses from all over, including this one from Yahoo's Pat Forde.
Don't everyone call Indiana all at once, SEC schools.— Pat Forde (@YahooForde) April 27, 2014
Well, the joke didn't get by the folks in Bloomington, who responded to Forde's tweet promptly.

Now, I don't ever recommend posting your phone number to a public forum such as Twitter, but Indiana's a public school, so it's not like it wasn't easily accessible.
But will any SEC school call it? I don't know. If I'm an SEC school looking to schedule a Big Ten team right now, I'd be wary of a Hoosiers team that has managed to score 35 points per game the last two seasons. No, right now I'd be calling Illinois or Purdue, they're much more manageable. Or hell, why not bring in Colorado or Kansas? There are all sorts of options available, don't rush into anything.
