Movin’ Out

6 11 2011

With all the constant rumors and speculation about college football, one alteration has become official.

The Southeastern Conference (SEC) has accepted Missouri into their conference for the 2012-2013 academic school year. This now puts the SEC at 14 teams while the Big XII is hoping the arrival of West Virginia – and possibly others – that same year will help stabilize their conference.

Texas A&M will also be making this transition from the Big XII to the SEC during the 2012-2013 academic school year.

Economically speaking, this is a very solid move for the Tigers and will provide stability for their program. However, watching the LSU/Alabama and Arkansas/South Carolina games confirmed that the competition on the field will be extremely tough. This is a stacked conference with many teams that would probably go to a BCS bowl game if they were in any other conference. In the short run, this will probably provide some arduous years when Mizzou will have to adjust to the grind-it-out, defensive style of SEC football, but in the long-run, as long as their recruits from Texas remain constant, this move will hopefully allow them to become a strong football program.
