I agree, if Missouri is to make their mark in the conference, this is the line they will do it in. If they can make the SEC a three team discussion between UK, UF and MU, it will be a big win for them on the national perspective. Football may drive realignment, but for half the academic year, the national focus is on basketball.
You'll see it's all a show, keep 'em laughing as you go, just remember, the last laugh is on you, and always look on the bright side of life!
