With all this talk of adding Mizzou to the SEC I think it is time to vote on a new conference name. Obviously, Missouri is not part of the Southeast, even though there appears to be an even amount of rednecks as there are in Southern states (from what I've seen anyway). I understand people do not want to change the name in a way that we lose our identity as badass southerners whose football teams own everyone on the field year in and year out (excluding our last 3 or so), so why not just simply: THE Conference.
I think you guys see where I'm going here. We're the best. Period. Welcome to awesomeness A&M and potentially Mizzou. Welcome to the league who funnels kids to the NFL, recruits. In short, welcome to greatness.
What do you guys think? I'd like to hear other names as well if anyone has been giving it thought as I have.
(Disclaimer: I do not want them to even think about changing the name of our conference; I don't care if they added Oregon. This is for fun.)
Also, if we added Mizzou, Auburn would be the best option to slide over to the East. I see us moving to a 9 game schedule, with our 1 permanent team from the West being A&M. Auburn's would be Alabama, ending the Bama - UT game. This would leave Mizzou and UT and eachother's permanents. Any thoughts?
