It’s the SEC, so color me shocked, shocked by this news.
Coaches from at least four Southeastern Conference football teams have contacted some Missouri seniors about their interest in transferring in the wake of NCAA sanctions against the Tigers’ football program, an MU spokesperson confirmed Tuesday.
Auburn, Mississippi State, Tennessee and Texas A&M have inquired about Mizzou seniors who could be eligible for NCAA waivers to play at another school immediately without having to sit out a year.
Nice, he said sarcastically.
All of which makes this gesture stick out like a sore thumb.
Sundvold added that Georgia’s Kirby Smart was among the SEC coaches who have called Odom to say his team wouldn’t poach players from MU’s roster.
