Love TJ's bravado. Almost makes me want to root for the Tigers. I will be pulling for them in College Station.
When it comes to Day One’s quote machine, it wasn’t a coach who took home first prize. Nope, senior Missouri receiver TJ Moe was actually the man whose gums flapped loudest… and most entertainingly. The clear message? He’s tired of hearing about how great the SEC is:
“People talk about how good SEC defenses are but don’t take into account how good Big 12 offenses are…
I know they won the last six national titles. But all 12 teams didn’t win it. Just one did…
They’ve also got prettier girls, the air’s fresher and the toilet paper’s thicker.”
Sounds like that chip on Gary Pinkel’s shoulder is actually a message that he’s sending throughout the Mizzou program. Moe — who draws a lot of comparisons to the NFL’s Wes Welker — obviously received his coach’s message loud and clear.
Now let’s see who around the SEC takes note of Moe’s many messages from Media Days.
