    Give Divisions random names not based on regions

    Div. A: UT, Bama, Auburn, UGA, USClite, UK, and Vandy

    Div B: UF, LSU, Arky, Mizz, A&M, Miss St, Ole Miss

    UF plays UGA in Jax every year

    Bama plays LSU every year

    The rest does not matter but I would like a yearly game with Ole Miss I love that place...When does the SEC pay me for this? Thoughts?

    I would much rather have Florida or Arky than SC.

    Div. A would be overloaded with UF. This is the only way it works IMO. I do not want to lose UF but they are not a traditional rival and really are at a bad time in the year scheduling wise for us anyway. Arky has to play LSU, A&M and Mizz every year IMO as well. I am open to another configuration that keeps all necessary rivalries going and is balanced...
     
  4. Florida gets [uck fay]ed under that scenario and wouldn't let that happen. Those road trips.

    Actually, Florida makes out like bandits in that scenario. LSU is their only competition. The rest of that division is a bad joke.

    If Florida would be so [uck fay]ed, I would happily swap with them.

    The road trips are no longer then coming to Knoxville, Vandy or Kentucky. LSU might be closer for them as well as Miss. St. Any difference in travel time is small absent the A&M trip. Are teams going to fly into A&M? It is going to be around 16 hours of travel time to get many teams there. I would think flying into Houston would be an option but I do not know the rules on this.

    Oh, they'll fly in. Teams fly in to games all the time. Tennessee flies to LSU and Arkansas.

    Throw Missouri in the east and let A&M be their cross division rival.

    why not just throw Auburn in the Eastern division?

    I like keeping Auburn in the west so that they can keep bama and UT can too. They probably will move though if the UT/ bama game is preserved.

    I really think too much care is being given to preserve the East-West thing. It's only a 20 year tradition.

    true, but at least and East/West division makes more sense than the stupidity the Big 10 came up with

    I'm not so sure. They gave the divisions atrocious names, but I think trying to make balanced divisions with neutral geography isn't a bad idea.
