This conference move for Mizzou is ridiculous; what, because the president of the SEC and a Missouri lawyer practiced law together once upon a time....Mizzou''s record against the SEC in football is very impressive; guess SEC advocates want to level the wins/loses record about 10 games. This is a poor conference fit...
Mike, it's time to move on and get with the program. The ship has sailed. Only time can vindicate a prophet. Give it some time and you can brag on here to your hearts desire in a few years if the move is a bomb.
@KC Tiger KC Tiger, I lived in the deep south for over 20 years; you can't imagine the jocularity and disdain they have for mid-west football. On the contrary, I don't want to "I told you so" in a few years. I would rather hang Missouri's record of 17 wins 8 losses, and 1 tie vs the SEC around their necks; and leave it at that.
So MU should have stayed in the failing Big 2 and Little 8 so you don't have to say "I told you so" and you can hang onto ancient history to claim your superiority? Are you a Chickenhawk in Tiger clothing? Nice logic.
MU is joining the current top conference in football and is doing everything they can to compete favorably. The uniforms are part of that. Why don't you give them a chance and see how things work out. If they fail, you can tell all of us positive fans "I told you so!" But, if that would make you happy, you aren't a real fan in the first place.
@Mike007Thanks for the rousing welcome. You need to direct your animosity to Mr. Slive.....oh of course he only suggested Mizzou join the conference because of an old relationship...Makes sense to me. The Southern history of Mizzou has been posted on the board many times. Sorry we are not part of the "Deep South"
We are midwestern in your mind so we don't belong and we automatically will get our ass kicked. What about Ole Miss and MSU. They're part of the "Deep South" and don't exactly have a sterlng football record? but I guess since they are family, they're protected
This is about athletes and coaching. SEC is a great conference and Mizzou will represent it well. We'll take our lumps and be better for it. I guess to you we are like the mother-in-law you never liked but had to put up with because she's part of the family. You're welcome in Missouri anytime. Maybe we'll grow on you.
