08:23 AM ET 09.07 | The SEC may not have needed more Tigers, but Missouri sure has adapted quickly, and Columbia, Mo., is playing the part. All up and down the busy streets of this slightly crazed college football town, there's tangible evidence that a very big game is on the horizon. In the windows of all the elegant designer boutiques and more down-to-earth consignment shops, not to mention the upscale eateries and bustling student haunts all across the district, they are flying school colors. ... [It's] starting to feel like Columbia has already made a seamless switch from a more sedate Big 12 town to the SEC's northernmost outpost. "You feel the bigness all around town," gushed Max Copeland, the extremely expressive, hard-rocking Mizzou offensive lineman.

That's right. If a coach wants to keep his job, he better.

Yeah...I like how they tried to rationalize it... But I cant say that I blame him...This is a very big game for TAMU...

Sends the wrong message to your team. One game is more important than doing the right thing. The Zooker did it at UF for Channing Crowder, that is reason enough to not do it.

I thought Kentucky was further north than Mizzu.

Some KU fan sent this to me yesterday, Mizzou fans (students) made a video..... painful to watch, and horrifying to listen..... however there are a few reasons to watch it. I recommend mute = on.

I hope so, at least the the ones suspended for weed. One game is enough IMO.
