ST. LOUIS - The Missouri Tigers are having a hard time fitting in on the field during their first season in the SEC. They arent doing themselves any favors off the field either. After finally recording their first SEC win Saturday - a 33-10 blowout of lowly Kentucky in Columbia the Tigers decided to celebrate it with a t-shirt. For the bargain price of just 16.99, fans can purchase a commemorative t-shirt on the schools official online store highlighting Missouris win over a Kentucky program that is 1-8 this year and among the worst of those in BCS conferences. The win was historic the Tigers first in the SEC since they joined the league this summer. But nowhere on the shirt does mention that. Instead it proudly displays the date, location, score and the words, CAGED THE CATS. But this wasnt the first time SEC fans have objected to something done by Missouri or their fans since joining the league. Back in September, Missouri fans took out an ad in a Georgia newspaper thanking Georgia fans for coming to Columbia and being, a terrific bunch of visitors, that were friendly, gracious and fun, during their SEC opener on Sept. 8. The full color ad went on to say, We dont like to lose around here, but both of our teams played an undeniably exciting and awesome game! You have us an unforgettable first game in the SEC, and we thank you for that. We hope you enjoyed your visit to mid-Missouri, and look forward to seeing you next time. Best wishes from the Fans and Residents of Tiger Town USA. The final price of the t-shirt comes to 26.21 when you add in a 7.00 fee for shipping and handling and 2.22 for tax. No word on whether or not a shirt is coming for Mondays 91-58 basketball exhibition victory over Northwest Missouri State. For a league built on heated rivalries and hatred, Missouri appears to have a lot to learn about this whole SEC thing.
