Lost in the shuffle from the fallout of Saturday’s loss to
MSU was the debut of Texas A&M and Missouri in the SEC. Both teams came up
short in their maiden attempts at scoring an SEC victory, but they offered an
exciting glimpse into the future of the most competitive conference in college
Georgia and Florida carried the torch admirably for the SEC
by holding off the newcomers this weekend. However, it is only a matter of time
before fans from every other school in this conference have Texas A&M,
Missouri, and their respective players permanently affixed on their radar as
annual threats to their own team’s success.
While additional competition might give you pause, try not to
let it get you too down-trodden. The addition of more quality programs to the
SEC is only going to supplement it as the premier conference in college
football and beyond.
Recruiting is going to improve, the programs will improve,
games will become even more competitive, the journey to the SEC Championship
Game will be more exciting, and the list goes on and on.
The SEC will always be driven by its fans that follow individual
institutions in the maniacal manner that most of us do. Missouri and Texas
A&M’s addition to that patchwork of passion is what makes being a part of
the SEC special. This is where we work the hardest, play the hardest, care the
most, and cheer the loudest. Texas A&M and Missouri – this is SEC Country.
