(The Associated Press)All eyes in the SEC are on Georgia Florida this week in Jacksonville. Some bowl directors have been eyeing Jacksonville for months for a decidedly different reason.
Gator Bowl creates headache for lower SEC bowls
Meanwhile, lower tiered SEC bowls are left scrambling. But such is life in the bowl business.
No announcements have been made yet, but the top five in the SEC bowl pecking order will likely remain the same. No. 1 (and No. 2 in some years) goes to the Bowl Championship Series, No. 2 to the Capital One, No. 3 is shared by the Outback and Cotton, and No. 5 to the Chick fil A.
The Gator Bowl joins the SEC bowl lineup next season. And that's created major headaches for bowls in Birmingham, Memphis and Nashville.
Adding the Gator Bowl against the Big Ten gives the SEC three New Year's Day bowls and presumably more money.
Currently, the Music City and Liberty share the Nos. 6 and 7 picks. Under one scenario being seriously discussed, the Music City would pick No.
The danger of leaving the SEC is you never know if you'll return. Just ask the Gator, which had at least one SEC team in 28 of its first 49 years before parting with the SEC Converse All Star Leather Ox Low Tan/Brown

It's great to be back to our roots and where we should have been all along."
The Gator likely slides into the No. 6 slot. 9.
Even if the Gator has the sixth SEC pick compared to ACC No. 3 and Big East No. 2 Catlett said the move is worth it because No. 6 would have been South Carolina, Alabama and Kentucky in the past three years.
That doesn't sit well with the Liberty, which is the only SEC bowl not paired against a BCS opponent. The Big East has strongly stated that playing a bowl in Birmingham makes sense if the SEC is the opponent. How the Big East feels about a shared 8/9 pick remains a question, too. Five of the Liberty's 10 most attended games involve an SEC team, including the top three.

"Obviously keeping the bowl business strong and intact is very important to all the bowl directors, and we have relationships with them," Catlett said. "But at the end of the day, we do run an independent business and we have to do what's best for us."

"Certainly no one wants competition, especially when you're trying to negotiate with a conference as successful as the SEC," Music City Bowl President Scott Ramsey said. "But we realize our bowl isn't at the level of the Gator yet and there are certain things you can't control."
