An Evening with Coach Kul 2012

Mizzou assistant football coach Craig Kuligowski joined the Houston Texas Tigers on May 10, 2012, to discuss the University's move to the Southeastern Conference and the football team's preparations for the new season.
"Coach Kul", who was in Houston on a recruiting trip, has been an assistant under Tigers head coach Gary Pinkel for the past 20 years and is one of the most accomplished assistant coaches in the country.
Kuligowski talked about how Missouri's move to the SEC will be a win for the Tigers and the new conference. Mizzou officially joins the SEC on July 1, 2012.
Playing in the SEC means every game will be on television as the conference's TV deal includes games on CBS Sports, ESPN, ESPNU, the SEC Network and ESPN3.
The move to the SEC also opened recruiting opportunities in states like Georgia, Florida and Kentucky.
The conference offers stability and great competition. Mizzou will play in the SEC East with Kentucky, Vanderbilt, Tennessee, Georgia, South Carolina and Florida.
The University has made several changes leading up to the move and has plans for more upgrades in the near future. There have been several upgrades on campus in recent years, including the Rec Center and Brady Commons, and there are plans for upgrades to Memorial Stadium and the football team's indoor practice facility. 
Mizzou recently unveiled its new Nike uniforms and started replacing the turf at Faurot Field.
All of these changes will help with Mizzou's branding and prominence in the SEC.
Kuligowski also shared some exciting stats about Mizzou and the SEC.
Pinkel is 9-2 vs. SEC teams and Mizzou is 20-8-1 all-time against the conference. The Tigers have won 10 of the last 11 meetings with SEC teams and is 5-1 against SEC programs that have won national championships.
