Your Opinion: Mizzou’s move to SEC applauded

Dear Editor:

As an Alabama and SEC fan, I would like to be among the first to welcome Missouri to our conference. I am excited about seeing SEC football 35 miles from my home.

To all my friends that I told this would never happen I just want to say I was wrong.

I believe this is a good move for the Tigers. It will bring more money into the program and be a real boost to the economy in Columbia and even Jefferson City. You can look to see 12,000-15,000 fans coming in from schools like Alabama, LSU, Tennessee, Florida, Arkansas and Georgia. This can only be good for all of us.

To the Mizzou fans you will enjoy the SEC experience as you follow the Tigers in their new conference.

I think we are all winners on this one.
