We're getting closer and closer to the SEC officially bringing in Missouri and Texas A&M (July 1 to be exact). The excitement grew a little more when we asked fans of both programs to let us know a little more about the cities that house these fine universities.
Now, we're taking it one step further by asking you all which school you're more excited about. Is it Missouri or is it Texas A&M?
Both bring something different to the SEC. The Tigers will have that potentially high-flying spread offense with them this season, led by dual-threat quarterback James Franklin. He's looking to become more of a passer than a runner, so he'll look a little different this fall.
The Tigers return a lot of weapons on offense and have some pretty good depth at linebacker and defensive end. Both are key positions in the SEC, so that's a pretty good thing for Missouri.
The Aggies bring that Texas attitude. Maybe the spurs and cowboy hats have you all giddy, but the football shouldn't be too bad, either. The Aggies have to replace some key players from last season, including quarterback Ryan Tannehill, but don't forget about running back Christine Michael or that stout offensive line. Texas A&M could have a very pass-friendly offense with Kevin Sumlin in charge. We saw what he did with Case Keenum.
Things could get a bit hectic for this team during its debut, but Texas A&M will be able to hang when it comes to recruiting.
Personally, I'm excited about both because that means two new cities and stadiums I get to explore. I'm also excited about being front and center to see their unique traditions.
It's a tough call for me, so it probably will be for you, too.
