Better strap up. Realignment could be getting very serious very quickly.

    Actually, I only refined what they said to.make it more specific

    I'm suggesting something very similar to the NFL schedule except removing the second game in diviosion and substituting a permanent cross over in place of that game against the team from another division that finished in the same place as you did the year prior

    based on the Pod system in the SECN post Bama wouldn't play LSU every year. They would play them 2/4 years. Dbl's not wrong here.... that's what he said and it's true by that system

    So 3 games vs. your POD
    One game against POD X perm rivalry + rotate 1 of other 3 in that POD each year
    Two games against non-rivalry team POD that rotate every 2 years?

    Not bad. Still beats what we have now in the SEC imo

    They'd be one of the other pod games that graphic mentions. It would be a permanent other pod game

    I get it. But its amending the system in the graphic. With the permanent "other pod game" Auburn wouldn't host every team in the conference once every 4 years. Teams in Georgia's POD we would only host once every 6 years

    Right, you're suggesting something completely different than what they posted. It's ok to admit that you didn't read their tweet and weren't aware I was saying I liked their pods.

    The other pod games rotate yearly. Alabama would not play LSU every year in the scenario they posted. They'd play them twice every 4 years.

    We used to play Georgia and Tennessee every year and seldom played Auburn before 1992. The LSU/Alabama game isn't really one of them, but there are a ton of interdivision "rivalries" that have sprung up since the first expansion and others that have been lost.

    I have to imagine they'll at least try bending over and giving texas and ou even more of the tv pie. Sucks for the other schools, but its much better than aac or mwc tv deals.

    Also if this pod system happens I am in favor of no permanent cross pod rivals. Playing each team every two years is fine and might actually make it a bigger event when you play those teams

    If Alabama only gets to play LSU every other year and only hosts them every fourth year how big of an event is that home game going to be?

    You’re making it more complicated than it needs to be. Odin has it right. Do away with divisions. Have your championship game like the Big XII did. Each team gets 3 protected rivalries and the other teams rotate on/off schedule every two years.
