With conferences starting to drop their division, former Florida and South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier was asked about whether the SEC should follow suit with their divisions on the Another Dooley Noted Podcast
“If they go to eight or 12 teams in the playoff, then it would be best to forget the divisions,” Spurrier said (first transcribed by 247Sports). "Everybody’s not going to get to play everybody. It’s gonna come down to ‘Wait a minute, why do we have to play them, and they don’t have to play them?’ I don’t know how it will work out. All I know is that as a coach, you get your players ready to play whoever the schedule says."
