SEC media days have gotten off to an incredibly entertaining start. Along with all your favorite wacky coaches, it seems like this is going to be a great opportunity for some surprisingly engaging new personalities to emerge. Tuesday's breakout star was T.J. Moe, a wide receiver from new SEC members the Missouri Tigers. The player delighted reporters to no end, to the extent that they treated him to applause at the end of his interview. It was technically a standing ovation, but the reporters clustered around him were already standing. We've assembled the most choice Moe quotes for you after the jump.
Moe is apparently an expert of geography.
"We're about as midwest as it gets. This is like the bottom right fourth conference." -TJ Moe Mizzou WR— SEC Football News (@SECfootball) July 17, 2012
The transition from the Big 12 to the SEC is fraught with peril.
More T.J. Moe. This one on SEC Media Days: "It's serious here. I wouldn’t be surprised if everybody was strapped with a gun here."— Jon Solomon (@jonsol) July 17, 2012
There are also distinct differences in dress code between the two conferences.
"Everybody wears a tie or sundress to games [in the SEC]. Look at me. I wore a Dri-fit polo to Big 12 media day last year." -Mizzou TJ Moe— Saturday Down South (@SDS) July 17, 2012
This is the quote that is getting the most attention, but no one should ever overlook the importance of quality TP.
Mizzou's TJ Moe when jokingly told SEC has 260-pound CBs: "They also have prettier girls, the air is fresher, the toilet paper is thicker."— Jon Solomon (@jonsol) July 17, 2012
It appears that not everyone is a fan of Moe, however.
Well, you know what they say about haters. Yep: They go to Tennessee.
