Former Auburn coach Pat Dye joined the Paul Finebaum show this week and said that SEC should realign its division by moving Missouri to the West and Auburn to the East. Per AL.com:
quote:

"Just think about the inconvenience of the Missouri fans having to travel to the East to watch games on the road, of the families that want to go watch their children play," Dye said. "It just makes no sense for Missouri to be in the East.

"(Auburn is) on the Eastern part of Alabama. We're 30 miles from Georgia. We touch Florida and Tennessee, and we need to be in the East. And Missouri needs to be in the West. They could build traditional games with people that are closer to them, where the fans could travel. ... It's a tremendous disadvantage to Missouri being in the East."

Yeah, he's all concerned about Mizoo fans. He, and the rest of Awbun, are trying to get out of Bama's division. Plain and simple.

They have been begging to run from Bama well before Mizzou entered the SEC. Cowards

Wouldn't bother me at all, as long as Bama can keep Tennessee as our permanent cross-division game. Would give the Iron Bowl its proper level of importance...none.

Terrible attempt at a troll. When's the last time the UT game meant anything whatsoever for both teams outside of just being a rivalry game?

Mizzou should just move out of the SEC.

Cowardly? It's just common sense. Geography is hard.

That's all I see. He wants the easy way out on the scheduling.

Sure he does. That problem is Mizzou fans would still have some pretty tough road weekends for fans. Throwing out Auburn, the average distance to SECW teams from Mizzou is 568 miles. The average distance to other SECE teams is 686 miles, or roughly 2 hours farther. But either way it sucks for fans.

Coach Dye just pointing the obvious. It's as plain as the poop swastika on your bathroom wall.
