Missouri is set to join SEC East division with Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, South Carolina, Vanderbilt, and Kentucky. This makes no sense geographically but the move was made to protect historical rivalries already established within the SEC and to maintain competitive balance. Where have I heard something similar? Oh, right. That's the reasoning behind the B1G division breakdowns. So...cue the outrage from the national media, right? "How will I ever remember Missouri is in the EAST?! They're one of the western most schools in the league!" Oh, I guess not. The media is all on board. This is the way it should be considering I could teach a 5-year old which schools are in which division in any league regardless of geography or stupid division name. You can honestly draw a line straight through B1G country and plainly see the divisional breakdown. The only one that doesn't fit is Wisconsin.
