    What If: Who replaces Mizzou?

    I saw a statement on ESPN this morning that said "pending the invite, Missouri would take immediate action to join the SEC East."

    I might not be word for word, but it was pretty close to what it said.

    Who would take their spot? I have heard a few different options, like Houston, Tulsa, Louisville(my preference) Air Force.....Boise St? I know there is always going to be rumors, but has anyone heard of anything official yet, if Mizzou does leave?

    -Side note, why the **** would Mizzou be in the SEC EAST?!?

    I would love to see Louisville more then the other choices, but if we were to take 3 then i agree, bring in the Big East teams when that conference folds. I wouldn't mind inviting Houston though, they typically are solid in football, and have a decent BB program.

    because they are putting A&M in the west and no one in the west wants to move to the east. I do remember seeing a rumor that Auburn was willing to go to the east but Alabama would block it.

    Why is the middle part of your post a different color than the rest of it?

    Welll... Looks like this isn't happening (for the moment)

    No departure by Missouri Tigers at Big 12 meeting - ESPN

    Auburn to the east makes perfect sense... you'd think the powers that be would like the possibility of an Iron bowl rematch in the SEC championship game...

    Missouri will be in the SEC East because they are getting used, plain and simple.

    Not gonna happen. AU and Alabama will not give up the Iron Bowl playing every year under any circumstances. If you split them up it would possibly mean a rotation game.

    Re: What If: Who replaces Mizzou?

    Putting Mizzou in the East means the SEC can protect traditional cross rivals like Bama-Tennessee, Auburn-Georgia and Florida-LSU

    Re: What If: Who replaces Mizzou?

    The SEC loves rivalry's. When Mizzou goes to that conference, would the powers to be play up a Mizzou vs aTm rivalry?

    I believe that would necessitate Alabama no longer playing Tennessee, something that is only marginally less unthinkable to 'Bama.

    The SEC already has a system of permanent match-ups between east and west. There's a reason UF and LSU play each other, after all. They never did their twelve-team rotation the same way the Big 12 did--maybe to the Big 12's detriment, as Oklahoma and Nebraska kind of lost the luster on their rivalry as they only played each other 50% of years.

    Thus, there's no reason they could not keep a limited amount of permanent match-up games to preserve UF/LSU and Auburn/'Bama, particularly if they might expand to nine conference games, which seems to be the way the other major conferences are going (Big 10 will do so, Pac 12 does, Big 12 does, and so on). Add in the annual match-up with the chance of a headliner rematch in the SEC championship game, this seems an obvious ploy.

    I guess the only downside is that it might make it more difficult for a team to go undefeated or to one loss, but, as we have seem, the polls are oftentimes more likely to take a two loss SEC team over a one loss or no loss team from the other power and non-BCS conferences.
