Have Missouri and Auburn switch places and eliminate all cross division protected rivalries accept the Iron Bowl


add two teams to the West when the Big 12 GOR expires, move Missouri West, and both Alabama schools East.


Secede from the NCAA, invite all the big time programs South of the Mason Dixon to join them in their new mega conference, and toss stacks of money in the air like Scrooge McDuck because if you add Texas, Oklahoma, Clemson, Florida St, VT, and UNC they can pretty much fill in their desired amount on the tv rights check.

This is why if you don't know the SEC you shouldn't comment on it. Auburn and Missouri wanted the switch when Missouri joined. Tuscaloosa did not want it. Alabama's top 2 rivals are Tennessee and Auburn and if they were both in the East it is Alabama who needs 2 protected games to keep them. Therefore Auburn had to remain in the West even though they were promised that if further additions were made they wouldn't have to remain there, and Missouri had to sell their fans on going to the SEC East even though it would have been easier on their program's recruiting base to have moved to the West where they would have played A&M annually and had games with neighboring Arkansas, the Mississippi schools, and L.S.U. with Alabama being their farthest trip East.

As to adding Texas, Oklahoma, Virginia Tech, N.C. State, Clemson and Florida State and getting fat checks and being our own league? Sure, why not! Get Ohio State, Penn State, Michigan and Notre Dame to join and who the hell else is needed?

I'm thinking another school besides Alabama did not want the switch, but because Alabama is so successful and this other school is not quite that successful, it kinda gets glossed over: Florida. The Gators are not too keen on playing very competitive schools that are NOT located in recruiting hotbeds. Ever notice how rarely UF schedules a really good OOC opponent from outside the state of Florida?? And not whole lot of griping was heard on the Florida end when the Auburn rivalry was no longer a regular on the schedule. Plus, even though Georgia, Auburn, Alabama, and Tennessee catch a lot of flack from wanting to have permanent crossover games, I don't really see Florida leading everyone else to force them to go away either. Florida would prefer to have neither Auburn nor LSU and defensively not Alabama as a permanent opponent, IMO.

The current rules on championship games are ridiculous. Why should ACC and Big 10 be forced to use the same selection system?

Football is the only sport where the NCAA requires a conference to have more than the minimum number of schools to have a postseason championship. In other sports the NCAA mandates a league play either a full round robin or X number of conference games (basketball x=14).

For football full round robin or 8 makes sense.

Who plays in the title game is the league’s business. If they want to pit two highest ranked in the AP poll or best league record vs best APR so be it.

Football is the only sport where you only play once a week and there is a physical reason for a very limited number of games.

There is a better argument for dropping ccgs than allowing leagues to choose who they want.

This used to be true, but is no longer.
