    Likely. The SEC wants to add the states of Virginia and North Carolina to the SEC market. They took two from the west last time and they want two from the east and then they will have the entire old Confederacy.

    Virginia Tech would be a great pickup for the conference, but which North Carolina school do they go after? You'd think the heels and the dukies would stick together, that would be like splitting up Michigan and Ohio State or Texas and OU.

    I don't like the idead of 4 team divisions. That would have us in a division with teams like A&M, Arkansas, and either State or Ole Miss or Arkansas. That would make for a boring schedule.

    I'd like to see Clemson and Georgia Tech.. It would make the rivarlies between Georgia and South Carolina that much more meaningful... Nothing beats rivarlies in college football thats what it's all about...

    I like the 4 Division format. Whatever three teams will be in LSU's division are three teams we play every year as part of the SEC West anyway. It would allow for more variety among the other 12 SEC opponents and still allow LSU to schedule some meaningful out of conference games ala 2011.

    The SEC wants to expand into new markets...they already have footholds in Georgia and South Carolina.
