Don't forget that in the not-too-distant past the East division of the SEC was the "big dog" while the West was down. Currently, it is (perceived to be) the opposite. (Personally, I think the SEC is about as evenly balanced as it has ever been right now). That is why chasing "balance" in the divisions is a fool's errand.
