    When they go to other SEC venues they are going to heckled beyond belief.

    They can't yet. TAMU will build and be able to compete in a few years. I'm not sure about Mizzou. I wasn't really thrilled that they came into the conference. Especially since the SEC was a last resort for them because they wanted to be in the big 10 or whatever they call themselves these days

    The trouble with those offenses is that their defenses don't get to go up against a physical offense in practice. As the game wears on, the defenses will take a pounding and wear down. Eventually, they'll be able to recruit to fit the style of play, but they're middle tier right now IMO. I think A&M will be a solid contender sooner than Missouri.

    I personally think Missouri is the more dangerous team, at least right now. Not win the East dangerous, but at least capable of beating anyone on any given Saturday if their offense is clicking.

    Missouri isnt physical enough to compete in this league in spite of what sheldon richardson thinks. I would say jarvis jones played a great game for an old man. I think with a couple of years to build on texas a/m will be competitive.

    I agree. They are awful cocky for some unknown reason.

    A bit better than ol sis. However, Auburn can now have another rival besides Miss St.

    Re: So Based on What You have Seen So Far - How will TXAM and Mizzou fare in SEC?

    I think they're both mid-tier right now as others have said and for the same reasons others have mentioned: lack of depth, 4-quarter conditioning, and physicality. They don't yet understand the overriding concept of SEC ("big boy", aka "championship") football: superior well-conditioned physical defense wins championships, physical ball-control offense wears down and exposes inferior defense. They can call it "old man" if they want. Until they grow up, those pups can just keep watching the big boys carry the crystal home. It's not about who can score the fastest with a flashy offense. It's about who can make their opponents quit. Though I think Mizzou is currently more dangerous than TAMU, I think TAMU culturally has a higher short-term (2-4yr) ceiling because they're closer to understanding what they have to be in order to become competitive in this league, while I got the feeling since media days that Mizzou doesn't have a clue. They're like a cocky little know-it-all 14yr old boy who thinks he's got nothing to learn from grown men who've been there, done that. Interestingly, maybe they learned more than TAMU this week - Georgia wore their cocky butts out in the second half and made them quit.

    TAMU, and MO, welcome to the SEC - home of big boy football. When you play here, you better be ready to give it everything you've got, for a full 60 minutes.

    BTW, I got a kick out of the MO fans chant yesterday, and decided to take it one step further
    The cheerleaders start by yelling "M.I.Z" and the fans yell back "Z.O.U)" but I think they need to finish it off with "(M.O.U.S.E.)"

    I watched the Mizzou first half and thought that they looked OK. But obviously they have a way to go to become an elite SEC team.

    Then I saw Arkansas lose. I think the SEC mid-tier is a bit weaker than usual this year. So once you get below Bama/LSU/USCe/GA there is plenty of opportunity for Mizzou and A&M to find themselves some elbow room, at least this year.

    Oh, and Mizz needs to fix those uniforms.
