Missouri football should be in good position for years to come. Think about it. They've got a proven established head coach. They're the only major college football program in their state. They can recruit across a vast expanse - virtually anywhere west to the Rockies, along the soft underbelly of the under-achieving Big 10 including Illinois, Iowa and even Nebraska. Arkansas is down now, so they should have opportunities there even. The northernmost school to play in the unquestioned best conference SEC.
The move to the SEC set them up in an almost perfect situation.
