3 Ways You Can Help

October 1, 2011

(1) Email The Administration

Let the MU administration know you support a move to the SEC. You can even include a link to Mizzou2SEC.com

The most important administrator in this process is Chancellor Deaton, so if you only email one person, make sure it's him (deatonb@missouri.edu). To email everyone involved, which is what we recommend, just copy/paste the email addresses below into the "To" box of your email client (with semicolons included). The recipients include Chancellor Deaton, Interim UM President Owens, and the Missouri Board of Curators.

deatonb@missouri.edu; owenssj@umsystem.edu; boardofcurators@umsystem.edu; werdman@kcsouthern.com; davidb@newspressnow.com; ddowning@grgpc.com; don@elliscuppsandcole.com; jhaggard@semohealthnetwork.org; david.steward@wwt.com; craig@vanmatre.com

(2) Email Governor Nixon

Use our Message To The Governor or feel free to write your own.

You can email him at this link  or  send him a tweet like the following:

@Nixon4Missouri Get #Mizzou out of #Big12, into #SEC >> http://bit.ly/pMKXX2

(3) Get Your Friends Involved

Email this link to all your Mizzou friends. Post it on Facebook and Twitter. Ask every Mizzou fan you know to join the Mizzou2SEC campaign on Facebook and Twitter.

Key Players

As you might have guessed, the key decision makers in this process are 1) Chancellor Deaton, 2) the Board of Curators (BoC), and 3) Governor Nixon. Contrary to popular belief, Athletic Director Mike Alden and Head Football Coach Gary Pinkel have virtually no say in these matters. It all depends on what Deaton and the Curators decide to do. The Governor has some influence as well because 1) the Curators are appointed by his office, 2) MU is the state's flagship university and his alma mater, and 3) he's the governor!

Every Voice Counts

"I've been told #Mizzou fan unrest with Big 12 is having impact on leadership's way of thinking. Continued discord with league a factor too." –  Dave Matter (on Twitter), Columbia Daily Tribune
"It may be up to #Mizzou fans to lead charge encouraging administration to choose #SEC. Public pressure was critical in #Aggies to SEC." –  Chadd Scott (on Twitter), Atlanta radio
