Missouri hasn't even started play in the SEC, but it's already getting a little love from its new conference mates.
LSU recently took out a full-page color ad in the Shreveport Times wishing Missouri luck in the upcoming Independence Bowl game against North Carolina. It also encourages Shreveport resident to come out and "support the newest member of the Southeastern Conference."
Of course there's some big cat camaraderie between Missouri and LSU since both are nicknamed the "Tigers," but this is above and beyond in terms of welcoming a new member and helping Mizzou gain some support for a mediocre bowl it's playing in for the third time since 2003. When you're in, you're in all the way.
