Oh, I see. Good catch. When I read "MR.SEC" in a link I immediately skip past it as it's always Pravda-esque boosterism. Didn't know he cited SI:
“One bad football season does not make this a terrible move. Remember, in the preceding five years, Missouri was much better at football than Texas A&M. The Tigers certainly need to get better on the football field — because their new rivals in the SEC East aren’t getting any worse — but calling this move a mistake because of one lousy football season is premature. If, in 10 years, Missouri has not moved out of the SEC’s cellar, then feel free to say that the Tigers traded a world of pain for the financial security of the SEC."
10 YEARS!?!?! Really Andy Staples? That long a leash? A decade?
So the next 9 years, we can't "feel free" to discuss the merits. To question the almight wisdom of Alden Pinkel & Deaton? We will need 9 more years.
