With Missouri and Texas A&M joining the SEC in 2012, all of a sudden, the SEC looks watered down and no different than any other conference in football. Missouri and Texas A&M, to me, based on their performance in the past decade, seems to be pretty weak pickups by the SEC. Texas A&M cuts all ties to the other Texas institutions and will not play them for the foreseeable future which will hurt recruiting. Missouri loses its tie to Texas recruiting. Both teams will be bottom feeders in the SEC and will make the SEC look weaker and weaker as the SEC plays out its current TV contract. When its time to negotiate a new one, the money will look no different than any other football conference. Texas A&M will look like a shell of itself in a few years and the rest of the country will wonder why they decided to go to the SEC.
