Conference Realignment: Big 12 Releases Statement On Missouri

Now that the University of Missouri's Board of Curators announced a unanimous resolution to delegate authority to chancellor Brady Deaton to seek new conference affiliation, the Big 12 has released a statement on what's next on their end.

"We look forward to discussing Missouri's future with the Big 12 Conference," said interim commissioner Chuck Neinas. "The school has been involved with the Big 12 and its predecessor conferences since 1907. It is propitious that the Big 12 Board of Directors has a regularly scheduled meeting on Monday. Obviously, Conference membership will be thoroughly discussed at that time."

They make it all sound so pleasant.

First and foremost, other than Missouri actually gaining membership to the SEC, is whether or not they'll be allowed to compete there in 2012.  Big 12 commissioner Chuck Neinas' has said no, Missouri expects the answer to be yes. We'll see how cordial everyone is after that conversation.
