Auburn AD Jay Jacobs says the Tigers want to move to the Eastern Division
LINK

quote:

Auburn athletic Jay Jacobs said Wednesday that the next time the league's 14 athletics directors have a "football only" meeting to discuss ways to strengthen the league's national position, he'll make it clear that he'd like to see Western Division member Auburn swap places with Eastern Division member Missouri.

Auburn to the East, Missouri to the West, with Auburn still maintaining its Iron Bowl rivalry with Alabama.

"It makes more sense for Auburn from the demographics of our students," Jacobs said of flipping Auburn to the East. "Six to eight years ago, I looked at our demographics and most all of our students come from Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, South Carolina and Kentucky.

Auburn is the least diverse University in the SEC.

Since we're talking demographics and such.

Jacobs should be thankful Alabama and Tennessee let them stay in the West.

The Atlantic or Coastal Division is where they belong.

Somehow it goes over everybody's head that our schedule would be tougher if we got the scenario we wanted

re: Auburn AD Jay Jacobs says the Tigers want to move to the Eastern Division
The reason Auburn is in the West in the first place is to equally distribute the Big 6. We've had a ton of threads this off season pointing out how no one but the Big 6 has won anything, so I just don't see how the AD's of the Big 3 in the East will okay this? I'd be all for it and I'm sure Bama would be too...

It makes great sense... as much for the league's balance as it does for Auburn itself.

I'm not sure it does enough to balance out the leagues though. I think Vandy or Kentucky needs to move to the West if we really want balanced divisions.

Good Lord, and then what? Move the BITCHES to the East and they will still will not appear in anymore SECCG's than they do now. UF, UGA, and UT will get better and AU will still have to deal with Daddy in Tuscaloosa!
