Nelly Is Not Happy With ESPN For Its Lack Of Mizzou Coverage, Respect

Rapper Nelly has never been shy to rep both his hometown of St. Louis and his home state, Missouri. His allegiances apparently extend to the state’s main public university and its football team as well. Nelly is upset with ESPN for giving Auburn more attention than his beloved Tigers during the week leading up to the SEC Championship Game. He sounded off on Twitter last night.

To be fair, much of the attention has come in the aftermath of the final play of the Iron Bowl, which will go down as one of the greatest endings in college football history. But Nelly’s right that the current BCS argument seems to be over whether undefeated Ohio State or one-loss Auburn should play for the BCS title. A win by Mizzou would surely flip the script on Saturday.
