RBR POLL: Should the SEC Add Men's Soccer?

Clint Dempsey played his college soccer at Furman. I'd much rather have the next American soccer star be an Alabama alumnus.

The United States and Italy square off in soccer in Genoa, Italy today and it got me to thinking about how the SEC is one of the few conferences out there that doesn't have men's soccer as a varsity sport. South Carolina and Kentucky have varsity men's soccer programs, but they're forced to compete in Conference USA since no one else in the SEC has a program. Incoming members Missouri and Texas A&M also do not have varsity men's soccer (it appears as if the Big XII is the other major conference that doesn't have men's soccer.) I personally would like to see Alabama compete in more sports. Big Ten and Pac 12 schools compete in about a bajillion sports, but we have relatively few on offer in comparison. Personally, I'd be for Alabama (and the SEC as a whole) adding men's soccer. UAB has had a rather successful program over the years and that'd be a great automatic rivalry. Anyway, that's today's poll question: should the SEC add men's soccer to their varsity sports offerings?
