DSOR - is this game being shelved/lost?
the oldest rivalry in the deep South & the 2nd or 3rd oldest rivalry with the most games played among top tier schools

some people are talking about AL schools moving east, but pods are also being discussed

truth is, I don't care, as long as UGA keeps playing Auburn

I'd hate to lose that game

Yes because having Bama, Auburn, UGA, and Tennessee all in one pod would be unbalanced

The DSOR will survive either in a pod system or if Auburn moves to the east (hopefully).

I would love to play Bama, UGA, Florida and UT every season. Bring back Amen Corner.

I saw where one guy said that there should be two old school pods with the original 10 , add four more and allow the newbies to have their two newbie pods.


Let
Aggie
Horns
Okie
Mizz (if they are still here next week)
Ark
Usc
New

New
New

Have their own pods and just let the original 10 have the old days.

I know they won't, because it is all about money, but UGA and Auburn should vote no on expansion until they know for sure that the post expansion arrangement won't kill the DSOR.

I don’t love them, but I like thread titles that go two lines on the phone even less

They'll bring in whoever they want and still find a way to keep all of the major rivalry games. And we'll still hear bitching about Georgia/GT, LSU/Florida and Bama/Tennessee.

The UGA vs AU rivalry is going in the same direction as the Bama vs 10RC. Maybe it would be better for the barn to have a pause.

I could support something like that

I’d rather see each team select 4 permanent rivalry games and rotate the rest with 9 conference games

AL - AU, LSU, MS St, TN
AR - LSU, OK, TX, aTm
AU - AL, FL, GA, TX
FL - AU, GA, SC, TN
GA - AU, FL, MS, SC
KY - MS St, OK, TN, Vandy
LSU - AL, AR, MS, MS St
MS - GA, LSU, MS St, Vandy
MS St - AL, KY, LSU, MS
MO - KY, SC, aTm, Vandy
OK - AR, KY, TX , aTm
SC - FL, GA, MO, TN
TN - AL, FL, KY, Vandy
TX - AU, AR, OK, aT
aTm - AR, MO, OK, TX
Vandy - KY, MS, MO, SC

That system preserves all the rivalries that matter

Whatever the SEC does will involve securing the old interdivisional crossover cash cows: LSU-UF, UA-UT, AU-UGA.

It will never be that bad. Tennessee doesn't even have a prayer of beating Alabama. Auburn/UGA games are often close either way.

LSU need FL in theirs, take out Moo State. They aren't a rival

Gus shelved that game 6-7 years ago. That’s a big part of why he’s in Orlando now. Hoping Harsin can start to get get it back to something resembling a rivalry.

Don't any scenario where that happens but I can see us not playing GT on a annual basis with a expanded conference schedule.

I'm not sure GT is gonna make it if CFB goes the super conference route.

I understand the argument, but disagree.

They are in Atlanta, which brings a lot of eyeballs, they are traditionally respectable in football and basketball, and they also have a stellar academic reputation.

If we see “super conferences”, GA Tech will survive in either a restructured ACC or an expanded B1G

The Aggie obsession with LSU really isn’t reciprocated, y’all are just gonna have to live with bringing the T sips back for Thanksgiving
