This has probably been covered before but how exactly does a 13-team schedule in a split division conference work?
This is quick and dirty and flawed but it would probably involve the least disruption on short notice.
1. Keep the divisions as they are except add A$M to the West.
2. Every team plays the exact same conference schedule they were planning on playing.
3. The six current West teams all have to drop one of their rent-a-wins and add A$M (except Arkansas since we already have a game against them). This gives A$M six conference games. The "original" West teams thus will have 9 conference games instead of 8, six now in their division and three from the other, on the same rotation as currently exists.
4. A&M plays 1/2 the East for two years, home and home, then the next two years plays the other three, home and home. These will be conference games for A&M, giving them 9, just like their West brethren. The three East teams playing A$M in any particular year will play this game in addition
to the SEC games they were planning on playing and will drop a rent-a-win to do so. These will be considered NON-conference games for those 3 East teams.
So, the 7 West teams will play 9 conference games and the East teams will play 8. No rilvary games will be lost. The six original west teams wil thus lose 0.5 home games per year. DThe East teams will lose 1 home game every four years.
