Rapper Nelly feels ESPN is disrespecting Missouri in SEC Championship

This Saturday, Missouri will take on Auburn in the SEC Championship game – a game in which rapper (I feel slightly dirty suggesting that) Nelly feels Auburn is getting far too much love in.

Missouri has had a wonderful season and is potentially a field goal away from being ranked #2 in the country. Regardless, they’ve been getting little to no national media love for what should be a thrilling SEC Championship game this weekend and Nelly has had enough of it, which included the Country Grammar rapper lashing out at the World Wide Leader on Twitter recently:

Is it just me that feels alil disrespected that @espn is talking like AU has already won the SEC title..!Like the ZOU ain’t bout that life

Nelly’s quite the sports fan and despite the fact that he bleeds Missouri football, he does have a point. That’s not to say Auburn isn’t deserving of their praise, but Mizzou is no slouch either.

Guess we’ll see if Nelly’s right come Saturday night.

    Typical ESPN shit. It’s all biased based on the big dogs. Always will be. No reason to get that upset… Check this out… Want to know how piss poor ESPN is at researching… Or… How biased they are…. It’s one or the other…

    Look at the last 5 years… Patriots road games VS Patriots home games….

    It’s magical how they seem to play MOST of their tough games at home.

    You ever see anyone on ESPN bring that up? Nope!

    Never will!

    Mizzou is going to beat Auburn… No questions asked. Gauranteed. Even Auburn thinks they have already own and that’s why they lose.

    And Mizzou won’t get the Title Game… But Auburn would with one loss over undefeated FSU or Ohio State.
