not to mention that mizzou is in bad shape financially. figured they would have ridden that one out

I understand all of the hype of playing in the SEC, but I think that Mizzou should've just stayed in the Big 12.

I agree. I don't follow anymore because of it.

they get paid a hell of a lot more, on TV where eyes around the nation can see (I live in TX and every mizzou game I can see with a basic cable package), prestige for recruits about playing in the top conference in CFB, etc, etc, etc...

yes from a competitive standpoint, they prob would win more games if they were in the big 12...but the big 12 still has Oklahoma, which we'd never beat...and the SEC east isn't treacherous typically. hell we've won it 2 times in the short time we've been in the SEC.

there's a lot more positives than negatives about playing in the SEC.

and we have to remember, we switched in a time when everyone was (or was thought) to be fleeing the big 12, and we had to make sure we had a solid spot to land. the best conference in college isn't a shabby place to land. at least we're not A&M and have to be in the SEC west.

don't let them fool you...they have money if they need it. they've got some huge donors that will give money for what they believe in.

they shelled out a pretty penny in their appeal process, and have said they can double the CFB coach's salary from what they paid odom if necessary.

They seemed pretty set on Odom, so big $ wasn’t needed (just my opinion of course)

They’ve been having trouble for several years getting people to come to the games, but still found 100 million dollars for the south end zone renovations they just finished up.

I have no idea if they will swing for the fences, or if a huge name would even want to come there...but I don’t believe for a second that $ would be a deterrent if they found a big name/needed $ to pay them.
