COVID also drove the divide, bad feelings even more . Brad Teague brought this up.

And in addition to what was said, there was beef about broadcasting that the SLC refused to address. All the departing schools were putting out ESPN qualifying broadcasts and only Southeastern was doing the same. Hurt the exposure of the league, the schools and accessibility for fans. The SLC is finally addressing this now but it痴 too little, too late

The growing financial, competitive gap was a thing.. the expansion miscues (oddly enough, SFA president Baker Patillo was leading the expansion committee)... and more that basically tied into status quo and not advancing the league
