If Mizzou comes in there and wins the East and A&M finishes 3rd in the West, the SEC reputation will take a HUGE hit.
The scheduling was brilliant. They didn't make it look like they were just trying to punish Mizzou and A&M (e.g., making us go on the road to Bama and LSU) but they also made sure that we faced their quality teams.
For Mizzou, I think the ultimate benchmark is Georgia, and we get them in week 2. I also am salivating at the chance to beat Bama.
