Neinas has confirmed that if Missouri decides to leave, it will not be for the 2012 season. Big XII-? is as stable as it has been in quite some time, save for Mizzou's roaming eyes. But, the truth is that they are not the big player that will cause the conference to fail at this point. Do I want them to stay-YES. Do I care that much anymore-No, not really. They wanted the Big 10 and got dished, and now they are looking a bit slutty hiking their skirt for the SEC. Honestly, I can understand aggies gonig the SEC because they have never been that bright, but Mizzou? I thought more of them and I have actually lost some respect for them with their whole SEC flirtation. It is fine to explore options, but I just don't see them as an SEC school.
In any event, should they jump to the southeast we can replace them pretty easily with Louisville, Cincy, or Wvu. Perhaps all three if they go.
The only thing that surprises me is that Neinas is willing to give them all the time they need. He must feel pretty sure that they will make the right decision and stay. But, if not, adios!! ( I do wish they'd get their act together and decide--this realignment that they started with their overture to Big 10 has gone on quite long enought, imo).
