I'm not saying the media will be the final determinant whether Missouri mad a good decision or not, but, when you eliminate pro-Mizzou media, I don't see a lot of SEC based or nationally-based articles gushing about the good move they made. I have seen articles to the opposite. Not overwhelmingly so, but to say the overall reaction towards Mizzou in the SEC has been kind of
, would be kind.
Now, maybe that changes if the Tigers have a very good showing on the basketball side of the equation, at least from the national perspective (because we know the majority of the SEC cares very little for the basketball season). If Missouri makes a strong push at the top, I think the move will look better for them nationally, especially if they can beat UK.
