Oh, the $EC is going to be fun to watch. Apparently the Aggie Bow-Tied-One has tweeted prematurely that South Carolina is their new bff and cross-divisional permanent rival. That means A$M has already ditched Mizzou, leaving Mizzou with absolutely no connection to its former primary recruiting base in Texas. Oh well, so sad. Poor Pinkel, he says he didn't know. Recruits better believe him or no helicopter rides.
Is this story true? SEC commissioner Mike Slive said: ”I’ll wait until our league makes a final decision before I make such pronouncements.” He He. Slive was later heard on his cell phone saying, "Loftin you stupid underqualified Putz. Shut your freaking pie hole." :-0
Well, it does leave Mizzou with Arky as a cross-divisional permanent rival which makes sense geographically, but screws Mizzou in recruiting. And, it leaves the honored and tradition rich Aggies with a LONGSTANDING cross-divisional rival. This is an obvious choice for Aggies since the Cocks are the fartherst team away from them geographically in the conference. Nothing says "rivalry" like a half empty stadium. At least they both wear maroon so maybe they can spread out. The life-time record of this longstanding rivalry you ask, well, it is a shocking 0-0 after all these years. Good luck teams, we will all be watching. Yawn.....
Honeymoon seems to be ending a bit early.
