The SEC released the men's basketball conference schedule just moments ago. It appears that the small controversy/confusion with the scheduling was in fact true, as Auburn plays at home-home series with Vanderbilt this year, after Vanderbilt originally thought that was not the case.
Either way, some things that will look a little different this year with the division-less 14-team schedule. The aforementioned series with Vanderbilt is one, but it doesn't stop there. Auburn will face Kentucky twice as well. That should be fun. Auburn almost always seems to at least give the Wildcats a scare. Maybe they can do it with two chances now.
At Missouri will be "fun" and it looks like Auburn's two major sports won't be traveling to College Station until 2014.
