SEC to sixteen teams with four subdivisions that play a semi final before the SEC title game. Redo the subdivisions. How about Alphabetically?

Get rid of divisions. Each team has 3-4 permanent opponents. Rotate all the other teams. Top two teams at the end of the season play in Atlanta.

Wow. Some serious consideration from the Auburn AD.

It's an older article (written in the dead of last summer), but it checks out. It shows what SEC scheduling would potentially look like if it did away with divisions. Note that this is an 8-game conference schedule.

In lieu of that, switching Auburn and Missouri makes geographical sense, though it wouldn't bode well for our conference schedule. Who knows? Maybe we can beat them at least once before 2030.

Funny it is Auburn wanting it. Can't beat Alabama and bow want to come to a weak SEC east.

Bunch of chicken shits.

While I agree, moving Mizzou to the West makes sense, where was this demand from Auburn when the conference expanded.

Makes sense to switch them and Mizzou or Vandy. Don't know how much either school would like that, or any other team for that matter. The West is a gauntlet.

Auburn is the only team we have yet to beat since joining the SEC in 1992. Technically A&M too, but we started playing them in 2014.

The only way to beat teams is to play them.

Yes they would still play, but you have to admit the path to the SEC East championship is currently much easier than have to go through Bama to win the west every year. I have talked with several Auburn folks and they are trying really hard to justify how it makes sense for the teams with travel miles etc. which tells me they really want a better path and at least right now that is through the East.

If given the chance, I wonder if any teams would think about leaving the SEC? I know that sounds crazy with the money and all, but it won't be there forever with ESPN on a downtrend.

...About 15 years ago The East was the monster. Flawda was winning everything, Tenersea was very good and Jawja had its moments. It goes in cycles. Now that the East seems to have the coaching now I think we will see The East step it up in a couple of years.

I love that format, and the pod system. Best way for bigger conferences to face all the other teams in the conference in a short time.

If this were to happen, switch Auburn and Missouri and go to a 9 game schedule so that rivalries are preserved.

Or get rid of divisions all together and create a pod system with the top two teams meeting in Atlanta in December. I'm pretty sure the Big12 is starting this setup this year, or at least in the very near future.

It would be nice if this happened and Missu became our permanent opponent rather than T A & M. I would be proud of Tanner if he can make that happen.

If you move Auburn to the East and go 9 games, then everyone would have to have TWO permanent cross division opponents to preserve the rivalries since Bama would be in the west and Auburn and Tennessee would be in the East.

It be better for everyone to just get rid of the divisions. Each team has 4 permanent opponents, the remaining 4 games are done on rotation and the two top teams in the conference meet in the championship every year.

who cares, and why are we trying to solve it?

Personally I like playing Mizzou, we've had great games every time we've played so far.

It was a hot topic for two weeks, and now no one is talking about it. The same conversation will come up in June 2018.
