I'm late with this but thought I'd drop it in here.. I would put them in the same order as the pennants are arranged on the SEC logo, alphabetically by state - which I think would mean only switching around the 'M" schools from what you have now. Love your site, and really love the sight of MU A&M tabs on the site!
Well, as you can see we’ve jumped the gun and officially added Missouri and Texas A&M to the SEC’s roster of schools before they officially join the league.
In doing so, I wondered what the first responses would be:
A. Thanks from A&M and Mizzou fans?
B. You’ve got the colors all wrong?
C. Why don’t you just list the schools in alphabetical order?
D. You shouldn’t use abbreviations?
Well, it wasn’t A.
Just so you’ll know, we’re still tweaking the placement of the tabs — all centered or all left-justified.
Also, the colors were plucked straight from the official websites of each SEC school. So if the color looks wrong to you, email your favorite athletic department and ask them to fix their sites.
The schools are listed in alphabetical order by their usual name — Mississippi State, Missouri, Ole Miss — for example, but we chose to use abbreviations so the writing would be much larger and easier to read.
The abbreviations used are those used by the universities themselves, thus MU for Mizzou and UM for Ole Miss.
Finally, depending on your computer — Mac or PC — your browser and your computer’s color settings and pixel settings, your view of the page might look different from someone else’s view of the page.
We’ll keep tweaking where we feel we need to and we’ll do so in relation to the feedback we get from different computer users, different browser users, etc.
Many thanks… and welcome to MrSEC.com officially, Missouri and Texas A&M.
