    I present to you the comedy stylings of the TCU message board. This isn't the first time I've seen this rumbling about TCU jumping to the SEC in 2008. There is quite a long thread about it over on Tidefans as well. The rumor goes that the SEC will expand to 14 teams in 2008 and TCU and an unnamed school will be part of the expanded SEC.

    "AUBURN and ALABAMA have been pleading with the SEC for years to move to the more natural EAST division of the SEC. The SEC is unable to do this without expansion. In an expansion AUBURN and ALABAMA would go to the EAST division and KENTUCKY would go to the WEST division (which they have been screaming to do for decades!), along with TCU and SOUTHERN MISS being added to the WEST division."

    i wouldnt mind in the sense that LSU would win the west easily in every sport, but it really doesn't make sense

    AU, Bamma, Florida, Georgia, Tenn. all in the east. Historically that would be a strong team to survive that. But past performance is no indication of future results.

    That is what made it funny to me. That poster was talking out of his ass. No one in the SEC would go for that except LSU. The competitive balance in the divisions would be thrown out of whack.

    with kentucky going to the east, basketball would be a little more competitive in the west, b/c auburn isn't much, and bama isn't as good as uk historically

    other than that, the east is a complete monster house

    i never liked "divisions" anyway. I always thought it should all be 1 conference like in woman's basketball, that way we can play auburn in the SECCG one year, or Auburn can maybe play Bama, etc

    Considering this was their first year in the Mountain West Conference, that would be a pretty fast jump to another conference.

    I got a chance to talk to a lot of their fans last summer, and they were not happy to be leaving CUSA. They said that a lot of fans wrote letters and petitioned the school not to leave CUSA for the Mt. West but it fell on deaf ears.

    Say wha?

    I agree TCU is one of the hottest mid-majors, but great chance to win it the division every year?? I repeat...

    Say wha?
