Are Aub and GA okay with losing each other?
Their loss of an annual game is the only huge problem I saw with the SEC network suggestion for pods.

Can y’all be convinced to vote yes?

Auburn and Georgia have played EVERY year in which both fielded a football team, EVER since both started playing football.

So. No. Hell, No!

Georgia vs. Auburn is the epitome of southern football. It isn't going anywhere.

Don’t have to lose them. Just do pods with a permanent rival out of each of the other pods.

This isn’t hard to do.

Easy solution: Agree to play OOC in years when they are not scheduled to play.

And that is assuming that we go to pods.. and teams don’t have permanent rivals..

Either way, there is always a solution if you want to keep a game.

If the powers that be running this shite show cannot figure out how to keep the AU-UGA game played annually, then this initiative deserves a very public and painful execution.

The Charter members will tolerate change, but losing that game is a bridge too far.

While that seems like a solution, it really isn't. The great thing about DSOR is that, when both teams are good, it is usually an elimination game for the SEC title. It needs to count for the conference record.

That's also why it needs to be moved back to November. frick an 85 degree Georgia/Auburn game.

There is 0% risk of losing this game

Not only would two Big 6 schools not allow it, but I suspect the others (Alabama, LSU, etc.) would refuse anything that risked it as well.

We all love these core rivalries. I'd feel the same about UF-UGA or UA-UT (not sure UT is going to advocate that hard, mind you).

I give Hairy Dawg hell but. My mother’s side of the family is all Dawgs living in Social Circle, Monroe. Cousins at UGA while I was at AU. First game in Athens for me was 1971 I was 13 when Sully had the Heisman performance. Since then I’ve slid down the back of those glorious tracks, sat all over that stadium not to mention watching the expansions, blessed to see both 34’s in person back to back, watched the hoses turned on, Attended the Dawg 1980 Nattys game with the cousins. I hope this rivalry never ends.

Not an easy solution. Your two suggestions are pretty bad.

OOC game wouldn’t count in standings. That would be very odd.

Permanent opponents destroy the whole pod concept which was designed to play every team every other year at a minimum.

How about 11 SEC games? Surely all of the important rivalry games could be fit into that model. It would be hard as heck.. but it sure would be fun.

Play your Division - 7 games
Rotate other 8 - 4 games

I hate playing OOC cream puffs anyhow.
