Mizzou fans may take a lot of shit from other SEC fans all season long, but you better believe they'll be cheering you on in your bowl game and will defend the shit out of Mizzou to anyone that claims they're not part of the SEC club.
I've never met so defensive of a group than SEC fans. Personally, I can't stand rooting for a rival--ever. But down here outside of the conference nobody ever wants an SEC team to lose. They even taunt other teams (and you could clearly hear it on Saturday when Bama was up 31-0) with "SEC--SEC--SEC" chants.
