Lester’s still got a bee in his bonnet about those cross-division rivalries. But now he wants to make you feel guilty about it if you disagree with him.
“I trust they will recognize with the upcoming playoff, and with the BCS bowls being so important, everyone should shoulder the burden of playing the better teams,” Miles said. “Everybody.”
I’m supposed to give up support of the oldest rivalry in the South because Miles’ fair play fee-fees are hurt? Screw you, Les.
But I do have a suggestion to calm the man’s troubled soul. I’ve said most of it before – move the two Alabama schools to the East and switch Missouri to the West. That solves the bulk of the cross-division problems. My new candidate for the last transfer is South Carolina, since the ‘Cocks are backing LSU’s play. If longstanding rivalries don’t matter to the folks in Columbia, then not having Georgia and Florida on the schedule every year shouldn’t bother them in the least.
