SEC Expansion: Missouri Board Vote Could Mean Big 12 Withdrawal This Week

The University of Missouri's board of curators* is in the middle of a three-day hem-and-haw over important things, one of which is widely believed to be a decision on whether to leave the Big 12. The last time a Mizzou board of curators meeting was met with such wide belief, it did produce an announcement that they're looking at their conference options.

Any vote would be a mere formality, as are all votes in conference realignment. You don't vote on it unless you know it will pass. 

If a vote comes, Power Mizzou reports it will likely be Friday, while some sort of reciprocation from the SEC shouldn't be expected until next week or later.

* My favorite thing about conference realignment, or should I say the only fun thing about conference realignment, has been seeing college football fans learn to do the math on what a "board of curators" means in Texas A&M or Alabama terms. They should all be called councils of elders, like a sci fi movie.

For more, keep checking Mizzou blog Rock M Nation. And stay tuned here for more conference realignment news.
