Well, we are cemented in 7th, but we ought to get ahead of the new 2 and get in the upper half and stay there.
Big 6 and then us. Smallest stadium of those above us has a capacity in the mid-80s, and I believe 4 of 6 seat 90+.We can have a chicken/egg argument, but I dream of a day when we have 85k-90k people in Razorback Stadium giving the opposing team Starkville.
The thing I like about this graph is that it also puts in to perspective what we are trying to build here under Petrino. The fact is, we are a bit delusional when we express disappointment that we didn't win a NC or something like that this year..... and we have all heard certain fans yammer that way.There is a clear line between Auburn/LSU and us, or has been. We consider them our peers but clearly, the facts don't bear that out yet. You crawl. You stand. You walk. You run. You jump and fly. I don't know where we are yet in that process but there is a process. Petrino understands it and how to go about doing it, or I think so anyway. The clock is ticking too because with A&M and an even more delusional fanbase to the North coming in, there are going to be even more people clawing at that door. God help us if one of THOSE 2 teams scaled the SEC mountain before us. I'd contemplate jumping in an amoeba infested lake.
2012 will be a fresh slate for a 14 team SEC.
At first I was surprised we were 7th but it makes sense.There's such a huge discrepancy between the top and bottom halves. Not much movement in between at all.
i know what you are saying about those other teams, i worry about that sometimes too. I think AandM will adjust ok after taking some lumps. I think the shitbirds form misery are in for a rude awakening though.
I would bet Missouri has a better record, better conference record, and better head-to-head record than A&M the last 10 years.
Mizzou played in the much weaker Big Whatever North though whereas A&M had to play Texass and OU every year.
Wonder what the stats look like for the two decades to be separated.
