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
IDK, Auburn is a treacherous place and he "ain't from around here". He may be looking to escape.

But this is what coaching rumors and negative recruiting can do. He doesn’t have to leave. You just have to think he MIGHT leave.

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.
Auburn recruits heavily in Georgia. They’re recruiting in the same pool that Tennessee is recruiting in Georgia. That’s why we go head to head with them so often. At this point, Alabama takes what it wants nationally, so I think having Auburn down helps Tennessee more than Alabama.

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?

If the SEC was so interested in each school playing each other regularly maybe they shouldn’t have been so anxious to bring Missouri, SC, aTm, Ark, Tex & OU in. I’m not convinced most of the schools bring anything close to the league as the league brings to them. How much is your “footprint” in Ark, SC, & Missouri really worth?

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.
Yes need to hope we get Bama, UK and Vandy as our three and we catch this set up right as Saban retires.

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
I wonder if Auburn is regretting firing Malzahn yet....

If u watched the end of that Auburn game Tank was Pissed!!I think it was like one yard play near the end and they threw a pass instead and u could see him on the sidelines saying it was dumb as F*k etc he had a few words to say.Seemed like a lot of frustration so I wouldn't be shocked to see him enter the portal.

That is unless someone "out there" sweetens the pot....
