The SEC and Big 12 have each pretty much already confirmed the Missouri Tigers will switch conferences. The SEC accidentally announced the move, while the Big 12 didn't list Mizzou as a likely 2012 member. So what, pray tell, are we still waiting on?
Missouri appears to be the most thorough school in the nation. The latest sign that actual progress is being made, though, is the news that chancellor Brady Deaton has canceled a nine-day trip to handle business closer to home. Deaton has been granted the sole power to make a conference move, so it's kind of important to have him nearby.
So ... within nine days we can be done with this round of conference realignment, yes? Please?
