WTF: SEC Takes Mulligan




BIRMINGHAM-An official statement has been released this morning from the offices of the Southeastern Conference in Birmingham, Alabama. Commissioner Mike Slive has informed the presidents of the University of Missouri and Texas A&M University that they are being released from the SEC, effective July 1, 2013, on the one year anniversary of their induction. "We have made mistakes in the past, and it is time for us to start owning up to certain mistakes," said the commissioner. "What was once thought to be a great fit to the conference has turned out a disappointment. We are cutting all ties to both Missouri and Texas A&M and renewing our search for schools that work within the SEC." Slive did not comment on what schools he was considering, or what each school lacked that caused the sudden departures.

Coaches from around the league were asked for comments-

Mark Richt: "It was a pleasure, albeit short, to have two new additions to the league, and I wish them both luck in their future endeavors."
Nick Saban: "I'm sure you all want me to quote on the two teams leaving the SEC, but my job is to focus one week at a time, making sure my team is doing the things we have to do to succeed, to play at the level our guys are capable of playing."
Joker Phillips: "Really? I mean, at least this year with Missouri we had a shot of not being the least relevant. Damn."
Les Miles: "I certainly understand the interest surrounding what seems to be news. I am not reactionary to needs of media and things external to this building."

Other members of the media chimed in on this issue as well. Mike Greenberg of Mike and Mike in the Morning commented on the short tenure of both teams, in what has been an "unprecedented set of circumstances for college football." Erik Ainge of the Erik Ainge Radio Show discussed the news on his show: "I hear Kevin Sumlin often gets confused with blues legend Hubert Sumlin. I can certainly relate. People, please, I am not Danny Ainge!"

Texas A&M and Missouri will both finish the remainder of their schedules for 2012, but their 2013 schedules are uncertain as of yet.

Top shelf.
this is a joke right?
I don't know whether or not I should high five this. I don't like the idea of Mizzou being kicked out of the SEC but there was some funny stuff especially the Danny Ainge joke. Make this go viral.

Before Tuesday, I would have known you were joking. But after getting called out on the air, and then invited on for an interview, I hesitated, lol.

He is off the air by now anyway, I think. He might make reference to it next week though. Hopefully.
this cannot be real.

It's posted on the internet, it has to be true.

Its real.
They were the first step to 16.  But WVU is now in the BigXII and can't leave.  The ACC is solid now and no one will leave.  Unless you want to add Louisville and Marshall there is no one to get us to 16.  Better to admit a mistake and go back to 12 that works better for scheduling.:)
Yo @WadeWilson, I tweeted this article at Ainge from @sectalk.
Cant be on the internet if its not true and I'm a French model.
