Like many conferences and divisions across all sports, SEC divisions don't make geographical sense.
The second-year South Carolina head coach discussed another form of conference realignment at the SEC spring meetings, divisional realignment.
"Geographically, (Auburn in the East) would make more sense," he said on Tuesday. "Our league is trying to protect rivalries."
The main rivalry Muschamp is referencing in Alabama-Auburn. The pair have met in the Iron Bowl every year since 1948, and the winner has reached the national championship every year since 2009. It's unclear who would replace Auburn in the West if the Tigers were to move, though the logical candidate — at least geographically — is Missouri.
