Gov. Nixon Issues Statement on Mizzou Move to SEC
JEFFERSON CITY - Gov. Jay Nixon issued a statement today regarding the University of Missouri and the Southeastern Conference:
"Mizzou has a long and proud tradition of athletic and academic achievement, and we now begin another chapter in that legacy. This move is the result of the University's detailed and thorough process of identifying the best opportunity for long-term stability in the future. As we move forward in the SEC, it's important that we also maintain the time-honored rivalries that have developed over generations during our long and proud involvement with the Missouri Valley, the Big 6, the Big 7, the Big 8 and the Big 12. The Tigers will continue to uphold Mizzou's outstanding traditions both on the field and in the classroom."
