(AP)-LSU coach Les Miles isn't happy with the Southeastern Conference's recent decision to stick with the same eight-game league schedule.

Auburn's Gus Malzahn believes it's the right move.

t's no surprise there are varying opinions among the SEC's 14 coaches about the league's 6-1-1 scheduling format, which requires six games against division opponents, one permanent non-division rivalry game and one rotating non-division game.

Miles says the format hurts LSU because its rivalry game is against traditional power Florida, which leads to a harder schedule. But coaches like Malzahn believe keeping non-division rivalry games -- such as Auburn-Georgia -- are more important than competitive balance.

Coaches discussed the SEC schedule and other issues during Wednesday's spring teleconference.
