Auburn football fans, if you hate being mandated to play Alabama, LSU, Texas A&M, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, and Arkansas every season…we got good news.

It might not be a thing for long.

The SEC was split into two divisions in 2012 when Missouri and Texas A&M made their way to the conference, and with Oklahoma and Texas next on the way, the next revolution could undo the separation of the SEC altogether.

Jake “Jboy” Crain gave his take on SEC commissioner Greg Sankey saying that schools need to more frequently rotate within the conference:

This news comes in the wake of the ‘Alliance‘, a last ditch effort for the ACC, Pac-12, and Big Ten to compete with the ever expanding and ambitious SEC. With OU/UT southeastern bound, the rest of the country needs to figure out how to remain relevant.

Whether or not the ‘Alliance’ checks that box is still up in the air. What’s clear is that the SEC is going to adapt to the ever-changing landscape, and make a bunch of money doing it.

Fans were split on what this could mean moving forward:

Pod play is an intriguing possibility depending on what teams end up in Auburn football’s pod. If parity will be sought, then bottom-rung teams like Vanderbilt or South Carolina could end up making the experience less than favorable.

Include the likes of Georgia, Alabama, LSU, and even Tennessee (assuming Josh Heupel could get their act together), and we’re talking about an exciting schedule moving forward.

We shall see which way the wind blows here. But Jboy is on to something.
