yeah Mizzou to the east has been mentioned but the east schools complain about Mizzou being an outlier for the east.

CBS' Eye on CFB: SEC: We have three options for 13-team schedule http://bit.ly/oxtj7m Texas A&M playing 4 teams in each division is most likely


I'm pretty sure that violates the NCAA's "round-robin" provision in the Championship game game rule.

The MAC plays a true divisional round-robin. the point with TAMU only playing 4 teams in each division is that they do not play all teams in ANY ONE division.

Another vote for Mizzou. Mizzou to the East.

http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2011 ... ing_m.html

What's curious about this article is that Alabama doesn't want Auburn to go to the East because they don't want Auburn to gain recruiting ground in Georgia and Florida. My question to Alabama is if gaining an recruiting advantage in Florida and Georgia is so valuable, why don't you want to go to the East with Auburn and send Vandy to the West?

Also, Clemson has emerged again in a press report(s) as a potential 14th, but Clemson President Barker has denied any inquiries from the SEC on any level, and affirmed Clemson's continued relationship in the ACC.

While much of this was already known, it appears the SEC has some convincing/deciding to do from within. Mizzou, in addition to seeing what the B12 can deliver for the immediate future, may be holding off until the SEC is fully committed to add them, at least a solid informal assurance.

There is an article in today's The State newspaper (Columbia, SC) pertaining to this.

They want to corner the market on teams that play at places called death valley. Even though the real one is in CA.

or to corner the market on Tigers by adding Mizzou and Clemson. Who knows, maybe the Memphis AD was on to something.

Clemson is an ACC charter member, like 57 years or so. Florida State may not be so dedicated to the ACC by comparison. If FSU did end up in the SEC, the ACC would still have a Florida school, and could add a lesser one if they thought it was a must.

What the SEC would really like would be a market in North Carolina. UNC thinks they are the ACC, and NCSU may be too married to the other NC ACC schools and are also an ACC charter member (but so was So. Carolina at one time).

If the divisional stuff get's resolved, Mizzou could still be in play.

It sounds as though the general agreement among Missouri, Alabama and Auburn to place Mo in the East broke some ice. Although Auburn seemed eager to move east, 'Bama wouldn't have any of it.

'Bama's permanent cross game in the east has been Tenn. They don't want to switch that to Auburn if Auburn moves or potentially play Auburn twice, in close timing, for a championship game.

Some in the east, if Mizzou is moved to the east, are concerned about travel.

Nevertheless, it looks like Mizzou is on track to be added.
