For me personally,I don't care what the SEC was historically

MU wasn't a member school in the past years. I care what the Big 12 has been up to this point (I consider it disappointing) and what the SEC will be in the future. The latter isn't quantifiably measured by any metrics at this point. But all indications seem to point to it trending drastically upward while the Big 12 continues to spiral downwards.
The very low level SEC programs (such as S. Carolina, who just took the coach away from a top level Big 12 team) are going to all rise as the disparity in resources and perception creates an ever widening gap. What is low level now, won't be low level in the future...and the future is the only thing SEC related that is pertinent to me as an MU fan.
