If you are going to print it on Gatorsports, at least it could be palatable to all of the Gator fans.

Did Dwight Collins graduate from Tennessee and go to Florida as a double agent?  The north-south team lineups he poses are laughably moronic on multiple levels.  He claims the SEC is cyclical, but during which cycle in its entire history have Arkansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, South Carolina, or Vanderbilt ever truly made waves?  I think if I were him I would stop putting my ideas in print.

I just read that article from Dwight Collins of Gator Sports suggesting the SEC move from East and West Divisions to North and South Divisions. John, it all looks good on paper, but I was wondering what you thought about an idea like that. Is it a realistic plan or would it be laughed at before getting out of the gates. I'm just a newbie to the SEC and am trying to get the feel of things. Also, I noticed in his article that it said that my Missouri Tigers have four trophy games, but won't play any of those his year. When can we expect new rivalry games to begin? For instance, I could see Mizzou forming natural rivalries with Arkansas, Kentucky, and Tennessee. Could we ever expect to hear about a trophy being added to start a new tradition? Could a neutral site be added for a game like Arkansas v. Mizzou at a place like Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City? I think something like that could really be embraced... By the Mizzou fan base at least and I'd really love to see the Arkansas - Mizzou game be played every Thanksgiving weekend now that the Jayhawks are out of the picture. Thoughts?

The SEC just went through a hellacious time of working out the new schedule format.  And the idea from Day One -- as we trumpeted on this site from that day -- was to change as little as possible within the league.

 

Don't expect any changes in the division set-up for a while.  Personally, I believe a division-less set-up would have been the best option IF the league could have convinced the NCAA to go along with such a plan.  But the goal was maintain the status quo as much as possible in football.

Everything else you mention -- trophy games, neutral site games, etc -- are all theoretical possibilities that would have to be agreed upon by the schools.  The SEC wouldn't have a stake in that.

 

Thanks for reading,

John

 @John at MrSEC   Divisionless is the way to go even though it's more complicated and harder for people to keep up with.  Either that or we need 16 teams.

 

9 conference games is good and I would even be in favor of 10.
