Mizzou WR T.J. Moe wins first SEC media day

Jerrell Wedge, T.J. Moe AP

Uh oh. Steve Spurrier has some competition. Or a long-lost son. Either one.

The HBC did manage to land one not-so-subtle jab during his time at the podium on the first SEC media day. “You think I make the schedules?” Spurrier retorted to a question. “If I made the schedules, Georgia would be playing LSU every year and we’d be playing Ole Miss.”

Naturally, Spurrier’s comment was met with plenty of laughter.

But it was Missouri wide receiver T.J. Moe doing his best Spurrier impression on Tuesday, firing off one-liner after one-liner and becoming a social media focal point in the process.

On the image of the SEC:
“They say girls are prettier here, air’s fresher & toilet paper is thicker.”

On his first SEC media days:
“It’s serious here. I wouldn’t be surprised if everybody was strapped with a gun here.”

On clarifying his comment:
“I am not strapped with a gun.”

On Mizzou’s location in the SEC:
“We’re about as midwest as it gets. This isn’t the Southeastern Conference….it’s the bottom right corner conference.”

On SEC defenses:
“In the Big 12, we put our best athletes on offense. [In the SEC], they put their best athletes on defense. Kansas will never have a chance to play in the SEC, (& even) they’re always hearing about how great SEC defense are.”

On A&M receiver Ryan Swope:
Apparently Ryan Swope is a god because he can come in and get first-team all-SEC. But that’s fine.”

It’s too bad Moe won’t be back for another round of SEC media days next year. The guy got a standing ovation by the media.

    Will be drafted within the first three rounds. Great hands, runs some of the best routes I’ve seen in five years.

    He has a point about Swope. Moe’s numbers with Gabbert as his QB were better then Swope’s with Tannehill. Will be interesting to see how they compare at seasons end.

    sportsbastard… you are incorrect. Tannehill and Swope out performed Moe and Gabbert in every category except receptions by 3.
    Moe’s numbers with Gabbert
    92 Receptions 1045 yards 11.4 avg/yards 68 long 6 TDs

    Swope’s numbers with Tannehill
    89 Receptions 1207 yards 13.6 avg/yards 79 long 11 TDs

    The Ole Ball Coach continues to entertain. I can’t wait to he and Les Miles has a few moments to just gab and someone has a tape recorder.

    Spurrier and Les have concerns in common: Les is upset that Florida plays LSU each year while Miss. State plays Kentucky each year for their respective cross-over opponents. Les wanted to rotate some of these cross-overs or just eliminate them. Spurrier apparently has the same frustration, but both have to deal with it and with one another this year.

    Should be quite an interesting year.

    Seriously love this kid…good outlook on life, great attitude, and an amazing athlete.

    Spurrier was probably sitting just off stage, writing down this kids one liners. He present material is getting old, and if I am a betting man, he will live to regret his semi veiled put down of Alabama and Saban. Spurrier is like a little kid. You keep encouraging him and he will resort to the same childish behavior. I used to respect the guy a lot, but now he has just grown tiresome.

    Not sure why they’d need thicker toilet paper. Not even sure they wipe at all in the ess-eee-see, since most of their fans seem to think their shit doesn’t stink.
