More interesting than Bigsby in that article is the possibility of Harsin possibility Kiffining the Barn and head back west. The entire SEC could benefit by Auburn still in turmoil. Especially if the rumors of pods coming to replace divisions once Oklahoma and Texas join. One popukar pod has Alabama, Auburn, Tennessee and Vanderbilt together. Here lately consensus would have us 3rd in that. But if Auburn goes through another coaching change Especially after the different candidates it went through before landing Harsin. We could slide into 2nd most stable program and then by then Saban would have to be nearing retirement. So we could possibly be close to catching them.

Sorry to hijack your post. But I saw a diamond in the rough. Lol

This part is crazy:

"One of the hottest rumors is that head coach Bryan Harsin–whose first year in charge has come undone since the team beat Ole Miss to become bowl eligible and move to 6-2–could be looking to make a move back to his home region to coach in the Pac-12."

There's no way he walks away from making over 5-mil per year

If he walks he won’t be walking away from 5 million. He’ll probably be walking for the same cash or more elsewhere. Insane though to me as well. Who would be able to pull that though other than USC?

Rumors of pods replacing divisions? Is there a legitimate source of these rumors? All I’ve seen is some dudes spitballing on VN.

And over $17 million buyout.

Tennessee benefits when Auburn can steal a few top recruits from Alabama, Ga & Fla. Alabama right now dominates recruiting in Ala, Fla & who they want in La.
We don’t need to worry about Alabama and Georgia just yet. Let’s focus on a solid #2 in the East and 10-3 to 11-2 seasons first.

Then look to take the next step after that.

I’m sure that Washington wouldn’t have an issue paying Harsin $5 million a year. Plus his buyout from Auburn is only $7 million.

Not saying it is the way it will go but seems more of fanbases are talking its most plausible way to get to work. Keeping divisions is already frustrating some as the gap between visits to some cross division opponents is several years out like maybe 9 years or something I think. So adding 2 teams would only make that worse. With pods they can rotate the league home and homes faster making fans that want to travel to venues happy.

So yeah it is more than Volnation rumors. Even media personalities have said the appeal is greater.

SEC Pods Revealed?

What Are the SEC Options for Potential Restructuring of Conference with Texas, Oklahoma Additions?

The 4 divisional pods setup has been discussed on other websites like The Athletic, as well as Volquest (Hubbs, Austin Price, Rob Lewis), and there is another theory being proposed such as each team playing only 3 permanent opponents and rotating everyone else, but if you think about it's really the pod system, or another version of it. Everything I have read has us no longer playing Georgia or Florida on a yearly basis after Oklahoma and Texas officially join the SEC.
