Sheldon Richardson in the First Round!
Mizzou has another year with a player drafted in the first round! Only behind Alabama and USC over the last 5 years!
Mizzou has 6… Alabama has 14!, USC has… 5… Mizzou has 6! Mizzou is now ahead of USC in first round draft choices since 2009. That’s amazing. Of course not every first rounder ends up being the best player, but it’s still amazing to see!
Florida sits at 7 in 5 years after this most recent draft, so Mizzou hasn’t moved up any. LSU also has 6 after this years draft. SEC holds the top four spots!*
*All the players besides Sheldon Richardson came from the Big XII.
Getting into an argument with Sage Steel from ESPN on Twitter right now.
It’s about geography, and how Rutgers/Maryland make sense for the Big10 since they touch Penn State, and how the SEC didn’t consider that when they picked up Mizzou… Missouri touches three SEC states! Sure, they are in the East division, but how close is New Jersey to Minnesota?
At least she’s not Jemele Hill… she’d be yelling and screaming… and it would be a race thing at this point.
Woo Hoo OU Lost!
Fuck Bob Stoops.
That being said, I’m not too sure I like the idea of an all SEC Nat’l Champs game. There is something about it that doesn’t feel right. Of course if there were a playoff system there would probably be an SEC Nat’l Champs game every year.
