Mizzou Is As Mad As Hell And The Tigers Aren’t Going To Take This (Lack Of Respect) Anymore

It became clear at SEC Media days that Gary Pinkel and his Missouri Tigers were already growing tired of “how will you ever survive in the big, bad SEC” type questions.  As we noted at the time, there was no doubt about Pinkel’s theme for his 2012 Mizzou team: They don’t respect you.

Well, folks around the MU program are growing more and more eager to prove themselves.  And that’s not necessarily good news for a Georgia team that will be the first new SEC East rival to walk into Faurot Field.

Some examples straight from the mouths of Missouri players and coaches:

 

“I’m tired of hearing about it.  I think everybody is.  You see our shirts around here.  They have ‘RESPECT’ on the back.  It’s something for us to latch onto and give us motivation.” – receiver TJ Moe

 

“We’re getting mistreated with all the publicity.  People think we’re going to get dog-walked, like we’re just going to go out and lie down there for somebody.  And we’re not.” – defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson

 

“The Big 12 is an elite conference, team after team.  Is the SEC a good league?  No question.  But, come on.  All these people are bashing the Big 12 all of a sudden.  It’s different.  (The Big 12) might not be a convertible, but it’s still a damn good car.” — defensive coordinator Dave Steckel

 

“It’s not like, ‘Oh, man, we’ve got to be more physical.  We’ve got to be tougher.  We’re still going to do the same things the Missouri football program has harped on since Coach Pinkel got here.” — linebacker Will Ebner

 

It’s disappointing that Missouri is banged up — especially on the offensive line — coming out of fall camp and that Georgia is dealing with suspensions and its own depth issues.  It would be a lot more fun to watch that opener if both teams were coming in at full strength.  That would give us all an idea of just how much catching up Missouri really has to do… if any.

For a great read on how MU’s offensive and defensive schemes might be tweaked in the SEC, check this out.

Too much whining. Stop the whining.

 

I hope they stumble a bit just to keep 'em humble

I, for one, am worried about all this focus on lack of respect and constant talk of the Big 12 as an elite Conference. It may be true but it is the past. As they said in the Wizard Of Oz, "we ain't in Kansas anymore". I hope Mizzou plays hard but doesn't go out too fast and furious and burn out in the second half. I'd feel better if we didn'y have to face a Top 10 team as the first conference game ... but that is the way it is going to be in the SEC. Let's just compete and let the chips fall. It will be great fun.

From what I gather, the majority of Georgia fans don't view Mizzou as a cakewalk at all, especially in light of all the depth issues alluded to above. I do think it'll be telling for their program when they're four or five conference games deep into the season, when the weekly pounding that is the SEC schedule begins to take its toll, and the early season adrenaline rush of wanting to prove they belong wears off. I have in-laws that are MU alums so I'm probably more familiar with their program than most Georgia people and I have a great deal of respect for the job Gary Pinkel's done over there. Over the long run, there's little doubt they'll be just fine in the SEC. If Arkansas can do it, there's no reason Mizzou can't.

As a HogFan i agree, i don't like mizzou mainly due to old basketball rivalies, but they are in a similar boat the hogs were in when we joined the sec...Its all about recuiting the best players and the tigers have their work cut out for them!  They are goin to have to find some type of recruiting base, maybe texas, okla etc and see what happens

Hey John, 

Unless we are subscribers to the Columbia, MO newspaper we are not able to read their articles you list in your MIZZOU posts. You have a great site.
