The Missouri Tigers are likely to be the least appreciated team coming into the SEC this season in terms of known coverage of its players given that the team has been in the Big 12 up until now and perhaps media coverage is less even than that of Texas A&M. It's interesting then to look at the preseason All-SEC teams announced today and find that's largely the case as Mizzou only has four players selected overall.
The Tigers failed to land a single player on either side of the ball on the first team or even the second team. Instead the team grabbed two player slots on both the offense and defense of the third teams. T.J. Moe is a wideout and Elvis Fisher along the front line for the third team offense. As for the defense, Zaviar Gooden and E.J. Gaines made the list as a linebacker and defensive back respectively.
