SEC Media Days 2012: Missouri Worrying About Southeast Lousiana First, UGA Later

Missouri wide receiver T.J. Moe thinks that the Tigers matchup with Georgia will be one of the most anticipated game in Missouri football history. He may be right but Moe says he and the rest of the Tigers are focused on Southeast Louisiana whom Missouri opens the season with.

"We're worried about Southeast Louisiana first. We're not trying to skip any games there, but traditionally they're one of the best teams in college football, year in and year out. Mark Richt is one of the best coaches that's ever been around. I know what a great guy he is. They have athletes. Georgia always has athletes, every year. Now whether or not they put it all together, every team's different. The chemistry you have. There are a lot of different variables. That's why some top 10 teams fall out and not end up making a bowl game."

The rest of the Tigers that spoke on Tuesday echoed much of the same story heaping praise in Georgia's and the rest of the SEC's direction. Head coach Gary Pinkel did finally tire of the questioning about the toughness of the SEC.

"Sometimes, people have been acting like we played a bunch of high school teams. We were in a pretty good league,"
