    I'd take 10 wins and deal with damn near any personality issues this side of Art Briles. Sometimes bad personalities make for good coaches.
    He pulled Notre Dame out of the program killers of Charlie Weiss and Tyrone pretty quick.

    One of the funniest things I've heard this year was Gus Johnson showing off his knowledge of Louisiana/East Texas geography by pointing out that Nacogdoches and Nachitoches are actually pronounced differently in Louisiana and in Texas. Louisiana apparently pronounces "it" "Nackadish" and Texas pronounces "it" "Nackadoches."

    OK....

    When I was young (under 10), my grandmother taught us Natch-i-toach-es, essentially rhyming it with the Texanized Nacogdoches. Took me until college to unlearn that and connect the real Louisiana pronunciation with the town.

    Then let's expand the view to ALL SEC coaches. With Texas and OU included:

    Texas--Steve Sarkisian
    Ole Miss--Lane Kiffin
    Texas A&M--Jimbo Fisher
    LSU--Brian Kelly
    Mississippi State--Mike Leach
    Arkansas--Sam Pitman
    Oklahoma--Bob Stoops (interim) Brent Venables? Dave Aranda?
    Missouri--Meh
    Alabama--Nick Saban
    Georgia--Kirby Smart
    Auburn--Bryan Harsin
    Florida--Billy Napier
    Tennessee--Josh Heupel
    Vanderbilt--Meh
    South Carolina--Shame Beamer
    Kentucky--Mark Stoops

    That's an impressive amount of coaching firepower.

    I've been on the fence about this issue. But the pod of Texas-Oklahoma-Arkansas-Missouri looks a lot better now.

    A$M in a different pod? I kinda doubt it

    Mizzou instead of aggy? That seems unlikely.

    And that's why pods are problematic. It's impossible to make everyone happy.

    The pod problem is the North Pod would have zero worthwhile teams in it:
    • Kentucky (lucky them if they get this setup - playoffs every year!)
    • Tennessee (should be good, but that was over 20 years ago)
    • Mizzou
    • Vandy

    East Pod would be too powerful:
    • South Carolina (poor guys)
    • Alabama
    • Georgia
    • Auburn

    so you end up with pods named Leaders and Legends.

    South Pod is balanced with:
    • LSU
    • Florida
    • Miss St
    • Ole Miss

    West Pod is balanced with:
    • Texas
    • aggy
    • Oklahoma
    • Arkansas

    You nailed it. Mizzou is the outlier. In nearly every situation. Because their placement affects every other pod. And either makes said pods too weak or too strong.

    In my estimation, there are only two logical configurations for Missouri that don't screw up every other pod/division in the SEC:

    1) Texas-Oklahoma-Arkansas-Missouri
    or
    2) Missouri in the eight-team SEC West

    Texas
    Oklahoma
    Arkansas
    Texas &M
    LSU
    Missouri
    Ole Miss
    Mississippi State

    I'm cool with either one.

    Kick Mizzou out in favor of OSU.

    Problems solved.

    Cheers on that one. Mizzou belongs in the B1G.

    If you just switched Mizzou with Georgia, then the pods would even out strength wise. The East Pod would not be too powerful, and the North Pod would not be too weak:

    North Pod:
    • Kentucky
    • Tennessee
    • Georgia
    • Vandy

    East Pod:
    • South Carolina (poor guys)
    • Alabama
    • Mizzou
    • Auburn
    It makes sense to put Georgia in the North. They are in northern Georgia near Atlanta. They are not too far from the University of Tennessee - which is a rival. They are not too far from Vandy.

    However, it makes no sense to put Mizzou in the East pod from a geographical perspective. But they have to go somewhere. At some point you have to shoehorn a school or two into the wrong geographical pod, in order to make the pods more even strength wise.
