RE: East may be best for Mizzou, but not for reason you think

"Right now top to bottom the East is just as tough and maybe tougher considering the inclusion of Mizzou."
Ummmm....No...not even close. Not this year, anyway.
Maybe in another year or two....but not yet.
Even Ole Miss--as bad as they've been--is better than Kentucky, the worst team in the East (in large part because they finally upgraded at head coach).
Texas A&M is arguably as good as--if not better than--either Florida or Vandy.
And both Auburn and Miss State are better than Tennessee and probably better than--or at least even with--both Vandy and Florida.
And Alabama, Arkansas, and LSU are all as good as, or better than, Georgia, South Carolina, and MIzzou.
No way the East is even this year with the West.
The top two teams in the West played for the national title last year and the third best team finished ranked in the Top Five.
The East was very mediocre last year.
Maybe they'll improve this year, but simply based on last year's results--even with Mizzou factored in--they're still not close to being even with the West.
