Mizzou must lower academic requirements and expectations to compete in the SEC or risk becoming the annual bottom dweller.
Most SEC schools thrive in college football because they have extremely low academic expectations for their student athletes. These schools can recruit thugs year in and year out who have no life goals other than reaching the NFL, and at the same time, these schools can save face in light of publicly known poor academic standards.
Mizzou must lower their high academic expectations or market themselves to a small contingent of intelligent and extremely athletic student athletes. Either do as the Romans do
, or immediately go all in with our resources to become the school destination of choice for scholarly students who happen to be exceptional athletes.
Vandy proves that a school can accomplish this in the SEC.
However, Mizzou isn't willing to settle for an 8 - 9 win season as a measure of success when only a few years ago we were an 11 - 12 win team. 10 wins indicated a step back a few years ago. We didn't make the move to the SEC to be losers. We actually have lofty goals other than the money to be made in the SEC.
Therefore, that leaves one avenue for success. We must dumb down our school in order to compete for the extremely athletic thugs if we plan to have sustaining success in the SEC. WE MUST BECOME MORE RETARDED TO PROGRESS
. Imagine that!
