I do not believe that this is the end of the story. I foresee the NCAA disapproving of the hire and will advise Auburn of such. In response, Auburn, in their longstanding tradition of thumbing their nose at the NCAA, will announce that the post is vacant until said date at the end of August at which point they will announce Bruce Pearl as their new hoops coach.

While I am glad that Mettenberger managed to turn his life around, I must disagree with you when you say that he didn't decide to leave Athens. He decided to leave when he decided to commit a crime and subsequently when he decided to lie to Richt about the situation, Mettenberger was, through his own actions and decisions, placing himself, Coach Richt, the team and the University in a corner with only one way out. His dismissal. I say one way out. Had this been at most other SEC schools, he would've run some stairs and sat out a series or two. Let's not play Mettenberger as the victim. I hate that he had to leave the University that he grew up loving, but he placed himself in the situation through his own decisions.

Go to YouTube & look for the Red Hot Chili Pipers. In particular, look for their cover of AC/DC's "Thunderstruck".

You're reaching. This would never pass. Currently, Vandy-Ole Miss & UK-MSU are cross division rivalries. There is no quibbling among upper tier teams about this because traditionally, these are the league's bottom feeders in football. Not always, but most of the time. The other current cross-division matchups are fairly well balanced. Auburn-Georgia, Bama-Tenn, Florida-LSU, SC-Ark, and now A&M-Missouri all are competitively balanced where all involved think that they don't have it any better or worse than others. Under your format, several teams would pick up a Vandy or an Ole Miss as a new permanent while someone else might pick up an LSU or a Georgia. The balance disappears and several teams would have a one game scheduling advantage every year. That won't wash. Leave the divisions as they are. Keep the traditional rivalries. Go to a nine game schedule. No one will ever be completely happy, but when you tinker too much you end up with something that either no one likes or doesn't work. Kind of like a large govt program with too many adendums or earmarks.
