Missouri has officially been a member of the SEC since July 1, but you could argue that things don't become officially official until Missouri plays in its first SEC game. That won't happen until September 8 when the Tigers host Georgia.
So with Georgia coming to Missouri in just over a month, the state needs to get itself ready for the new neighbors. You want to make sure they feel welcome, after all, and in Missouri that means SEC designs in your cornfields.
Hey, there's a drought going on anyway, right? Why bother using the land to try and grow actual food.
Seriously, though, that's an incredibly complicated design. One I couldn't even draw on a piece of paper, let alone put into a cornfield.
