What "lesson" did the SEC learn by letting Mizzou in? It was a brilliant move in which the SEC picked up a University that has an outstanding academic reputation with solid sports programs (better than we were when we joined the SEC) in a strong geographical market. The Big 10 was very interested in adding Mizzou, and Mizzou will acclimate to the SEC as they are just starting their "growing" pains. I am thrilled that Mizzou is in the SEC, much more so than if FSU or Clemsux (or GT or Louisville) joined. They bring nothing to the table in the SEC, whereas Mizzou will be an outstanding and interesting addition to our elite conference. Adding some diversity is good.

Good point made, I guess it safe to say that Clemson has no legitimate shot in making it then.
