Why Can't This Work



Why can't we just re-align the divisions in away that benefits the majority?

We know Florida & Georgia will always be in the same Division, there's really no scenario where that doesn't happen.

I purpose a solution.

Let's move Auburn, and Mississippi State to the East. Then let's move Tennessee and Missouri to the West.

Then in act the PAC-12 rule where in-state schools play each other every year, but everyone else has no protected rivals.

Geographically it makes sense. The potential for an Alabama Auburn rematch in the SEC championship game makes financial sense. Power wise, it makes sense as well. Bama & LSU still rule the West, and the East still has Florida and Georgia as perennial powers.

Looks like this

EAST

Auburn

Florida

Georgia

Kentucky

Mississippi State

South Carolina

Vanderbilt

WEST

Alabama

Arkansas

LSU

Mississippi

Missouri

Tennessee

Texas A&M

Voice your concerns.

For me this brings back the Auburn Florida rivalry, and ensures the Oldest Rivalry in the South lives on. The West has it's Missouri/Arky/Texas A&M 3 way going on, heck throw in LSU and they are all having a grand old time, as well as that vaunted October match for Bama and UT. Tennessee also gets back that Ole Miss series. And Ole Miss gets to keep all it's Rivalries due to the in-state (PAC-12) rule I'm tossing in there.

A FanPost gives the opinion of the fan who writes it and that fan only. That doesn't give the opinion more or less weight than any other opinion on this blog, but the post does not necessarily reflect the view of TSK's writers.
