Anyone else warming up to the idea of keeping the two divisions in the SEC?
Moving Bama and Auburn to the East would create a more balanced conference than what we have now, and LSU would have an easier path to the championship game by playing Texas and Oklahoma instead of Bama and Auburn. This could turn out pretty well for us.

Dont care, whatever it is will only last a couple years at most. This is just the start of the movement, the sec will become its own big league or will at the least expand more. We are too early in the movement for me to care

Whatever retains our traditional rivalries.

Pods. Play everybody w/i every two years, home, & home w/i four years. Two highest rated teams play in Atlanta or come up with an agreed upon matrix to ID top two: head to head, wins w/i pod division, strength of schedule, prettiest uniforms, best band, cheapest coach, etc.

2 divisions is the worst choice that could be made. Moving AL and AU, even with 10 games you can't maintain the rivalries you would want with one permanent cross opponent. And it would still take 7 years to play home and home with the entire conference. The minimum full circle should be 5 yrs.

Virtual pods are the best approach. If you want to go 10 games, you can have 5 permanents and complete the circuit in 4 yrs. After 4 years, you can adjust the permanents without screwing up a thing, or even be a big deal.

One drawback, if you want to call it that, is that you will never have a 2001 LSU team again. But with so many teams, we're highly unlikely to have one anyway.

I like the 4 team pods. Similar to the NFL.

Our yearly schedule would consist of the Mississippi schools, The Texas schools, Arkansas and Missouri.
Florida as permanent Plus one rotating east I’m assuming that’s the idea here.

I’d only be for it if they did 10 SEC games. 7 division. 1 permanent east opponent, 2 rotating east teams. I’m for whichever formula puts LSU playing at Tennessee and At Georgia more often than we currently do. There’s no reason to only play other charter members at their place once a decade.

No and such a beta post. You want to play the best and beat the best. Jesus Christ.

The only thing that worries me about pods is the possibility that they try to tie it to the CFP rankings. It needs to be objective. I’m OK with CFP ranking as a tiebreaker but the first metric needs to be conference W-L record in my opinion.

I guess the downside is that you could potentially get left out for two inferior teams without having a chance to beat either of those teams head-to-head. But I’m not convinced that is very likely.

If given the choice between divisions and a pod system where SECCG participants are chosen by the CFP committee, I’d rather divisions.

And people can’t seem to comprehend that you’ll play 6 other SEC Teams from the other pods yearly....even if in an easy “pod” you still play 2 from each other pod. It’ll be fun, but likely every school will have the toughest schedules in SEC history

No, I have made several posts that my preference is 3 Permanent (Texas A&M, Ole Miss and Florida) and 6 rotation in years 1 and 2 and 6 in years 3 and 4.

You will see every team twice Home and Home in 4 years.

Keeping the two divisions by moving Texas and OU to the SEC West and by moving Alabama and Auburn to the SEC East, geographically makes the most sense. Meanwhile, Saban will instantly make UGA and Florida his bitches.

While LSU will step into the top-dog roll of the SEC West, and all the best of the best football recruits wants to play for the top-dog and I can't think of anyone in the SEC West that will be better than Ed O to get the bulk of them.

Moreover, LSU and Alabama will still play every year, but on a neutral field for the SEC title.

Then when the new expanded College Football Playoffs being in the not too distant future, both LSU and Alabama will be in it every year.

Hence, any LSU fan who isn't for this new SEC expansion is a low-information fool.

Another low-information LSU fan. Pods, as opposed to the two divisions would be like slicing LSU's throat.

Apparently, this low-information fool is too damn narrow minded to see how astronomically far better moving Alabama and Auburn to the SEC East to make room for Texas and OU to enter the SEC West will be.

Some of you people can't see the forest for the trees. But nonetheless, it would instantly make LSU the top dog of the SEC West. You have something against that?
