Today is the final day of living with Misery in our rocking Big XII conference. I have a reality check for them and a few things I've been wanting to say.
Mizzou is leaving the Big XII with exactly 0 Big XII football Titles. Sadly, during this 15 year marriage Mizzou managed to win only 3 Big XII North division titles. Needless to say, the list of Mizzou achievements being mentioned at RockMnation would be embarssing to any other football program, but not you Mizzou, bless your little hearts. So, feel free to look back on 15 years to remember a couple of nice plays instead of big wins, conference championships, and those all elusive national championships. You see, talking about big plays only matters in big games, but you were never there. Texas fans can talk all day about VY running past USC into the endzone for a NC. But, that is diffrent. National Championships matter in football. But poor you, Mizzou, you have 0 so you probably don’t know much about that sort of thing. I know you don’t want advice from a Longhorn, but let me give you some anyway. It is probably best for y’all to sit quietly at SEC games, cause your smack talk about a great play Chase Daniel made in some random game isn’t going to get you real far.
So Mizzou wants stability? That’s like saying a meth addict only wants Claritin D for his allergies. You, Mizzou, have been the source of instability for many years. You, Mizzou, made advances to the Big 10 which in turn caused Nebraska to thump you in conference realignment like they did on the field. You, Mizzou, were so insecure that you lead the rumors and panic causing CU to think a huge conference realignment would take place. You, Mizzou, caused both NU and CU to leave the Big XII. You can stand on your head and spin it however you want, but in the end it was you, Mizzou.
You claimed that you simply wanted the Big 10 for their academic prestige, so instead you join a conference known for its less than stellar acadmics while playing on the east coast. For that you congratulate yourselves? Really?
I don’t think you can handle it, but I’m going to tell you some more truth anyway, Mizzou. Most SEC fans don’t really want you. That’s right. They don’t know you or want you. You are simply a place filler, nothing more, nothing less. You are like the in-law SEC inherited in getting the Aggies to sell their souls in marriage. They simply needed a number 14, and you “would do.” That’s it. You are the 14th favorite team in the SEC, and for that you claim to be happy. I bet not. It is simply not in you, Mizzou, to be happy. Admit it, that chance to maybe join ND in the Big 10 is still swirling in your mind. You aren’t fooling anyone with your claim of SEC love. We all know you, MIzzou. Maybe we know you better than you know yourself.
So, with all that said, congrats to you, Mizzou. You wanted the Big 10 and ended up wtih the SEC where you will probably won’t even be able to win 3 divisional titles in 15 years. Way to go. Farewell my fickle friend.
Wow, that felt good. I definitely feel better getting that off my chest. Carry on.
We're Texas, We're not OK.
