Default Auburn to the SEC East?

https://www.seccountry.com/auburn/gu...ly-makes-sense

This comes up every off season. Geographically it would be more logical to have Auburn in the east and Missouri in the west, but it would possibly mess up the Iron Bowl and Bama/UT.

Personally, I'd be okay with it, but doubt it ever happens. Unless maybe the conference switches to a 9 game schedule.

Doesn't have to be a 9 game schedule. They can just use an OOC slot for their game ever year. If we can play Clemson, FSU vs UF, UGA vs GT, etc. every year than they can play each other. I know it'd be unusual but if they really want to keep the games they have than there is an answer without messing up everyone else's schedule.

Well heck, we have a permanent W opponent (in TAMU) - Can't theirs just be Bama? There's your Iron Bowl fix. Or is Bama already a perm opponent of UT?

Default Re: Auburn to the SEC East?

If this is going to happen, it needs to be Auburn AND Alabama. Then the SEC can drop the artificial cross division rivalries that only exist to protect The Third Saturday in October and Auburn vs Georgia. This preserves all the rivalry games the SEC (front office) really cares about Bama vs TN, the Iron bowl, UF vs UGA, Auburn vs UGA and the Egg bowl.

When the cross division rivalries are gone, then you can go to a traditional east vs west schedule and you'd end up playing every school in the east or west respectively every 4 years.

I'm not in favor of the nine game schedule because some teams would have 5 home games and some teams would only have 4. Unless of course the 9th game is played at a neutral site like the world's largest outdoor cocktail party.

Yes, Bama is UT's permanent West opponent.

UNC did this against another ACC team a few years ago (Wake Forest I think)

Can't ever beat the barners, not really a good deal for us. We can beat Mizzou on occasion.

We always seem to get them at the worst time.

2010 they won the national championship after being pretty average for a while. Plus they beat us twice, with one being a blowout.

2011 was in the middle of another Garcia debacle, and 2014 was our worst year in about 5 years at the time, and Spurrier was slowly starting to move out.

Default Re: Auburn to the SEC East?

Seems like the easy solution is to get rid of divisions and designate 2-4 "permanent" rivals that play every year. You can easily satisfy all the necessary rivalry games and still let teams meet more than twice a decade.

Think about it this way -- every team currently has 7 "permanent rivals" and one rotating team. Why not just adjust the ratio?

This. Then let the top 2 teams play for the title.

Bama to the SEC east would make more sense with Auburn being their cross division rival. Perish that thought though.

UTk fans would gladly give up the Alabama game for Auburn. It is no longer a rivalry, just a beat down.

Default Re: Auburn to the SEC East?

Go to nine conference games with no permanent cross ties. For SC that would be six East conference games with three West conference games a year. Each conference team would play six of the seven opposite conference teams twice in four years.

A conference is supposed to play all their members.

We would make a lot more money if we only played SEC teams as a conference, but it would be brutal.

This comes up every time Auburn has a few bad seasons in a row. It is never mentioned when they are doing well--as they were when LSU and Auburn were the two teams leading the West.

What's ironic here was how much Auburn cried in '91-'92 when the divisions were being split and they were going to be put in the East and Vandy in the West. Lord, they didn't want that one to happen!

Default Re: Auburn to the SEC East?

Moving Auburn to the East with Bama as their permanent West opponent could set up a scenario where they play each other in the Iron Bowl in the final regular season game and then play each other again the next week in the Conference Championship.

Not sure how folks in the state of Alabama feel about that
