Mizzou makes more sense in the Big 10. If they can actually hold on to some Texas pipelines, they could actually win it too or at least get close.

I don't see that in the SEC.

Mizzou wants to be an SEC team more, but the SEC probably won't want them as much. Big 10 makes sense academically and geographically, but the Big 10 is super cautious and they don't make moves until it's been carefully considered for 5 extra years. Seriously, how did they stay at 11 teams that long? On the plus side, they do arrive at good decisions- Penn St. Wound up agreeing to an equal share policy even though they bring in more than any other team in the conference, and Nebraska is an excellent addition as a realistic national title contender. If the conference expands again, they'll work on it a long time and make an addition that will last a century while bringing a ton to the conference. I don't think Mizzou is that program.

My prediction- I'm sorry, it's a boring one. Mizzou stays put while Boise St. And BYU eventually find their way in and make it the Big 12 again. I take the TCU addition as a fait accompli, which is pretty standard, I think.

From a die hard Florida Gator, Welcome to the SEC, Mizzou.

I say good riddance.

They were our resident Yankees along with the other northern schools and now they're yours. Enjoy.

According to the arcticle from ESPN below it's not official just yet. I hope something official is announced by the end of this week because I'm getting very tired of Mizzou holding things up. They want to leave so I hope they do ASAP so the Big 12 can start adding other teams.

Agreed.

Mizzou should crap or get off the pot.

this sucks. I really don't want Mizzou in the SEC, and now they are talking about putting them in the SEC East.

As a Kansas Citian, I really want MU to stay where they are because KC is the heart of the Big 12 and if MU goes to the SEC, it will ruin that and our city will lose tens of millions per year in revenue.

Missouri politicians have finally woken up and realized this when it should have been obvious from the start and are now pulling and pushing for MU to stay put.

From a fan perspective, I dont really give a ****. Yeah, MU is our biggest rival but they are really nothing more than a punching bag in basketball and they have only won 6 conference titles in the history of the Big 12 (the lowest of any of the 12 schools, by far) and havent won a National Championship in any sport since 1965 and only two in all sports overall in over 100 years of competing. Missouri is literally one of the most unaccomplished athletic programs in the history of the NCAA and I dont know why the SEC is even interested unless they are wanting a school the other SEC football programs can kick around like a little puppy.

I think it's mainly getting access to the television market there.

It will given them part of St. Louis and a small part of KC. Most of KC is made up of KU fans. I have lived in KC my whole life and can count the number of MU fans I know on one hand. For the longest time I use to think that MU fans didnt exist because I never met any and I live in Missouri.
