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:
"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."
