As Missouri prepares for its first season in the SEC, it's all about minimizing distractions.

So when two coeds were running the stadium steps while Mizzou was practicing at Faurot Field, the Tigers' coaching staff had to put an end to that fitness regimen immediately.

According to sports reporter Eric Blumberg of KOMU-TV in Columbia, Mo.,  the two women were nicely asked to come back later to finish their exercise. Of course, Blumberg managed to get a photo of the coeds before they were ushered out of the stadium.

If the Missouri coaching staff thinks those two girls are going to be a distraction, they have no idea what their team is in for when they visit an SEC stadium. Sundresses as far as the eye can see, people. If anything, coach Gary Pinkel should welcome all coeds into the stadium during practice to run the stairs, jump up and down and cheer, sip mixed drinks in tents with chandeliers, yell "Hotty Toddy," whatever. It would be as much preparation for the SEC as any of the Tigers' on-field drills.
