As Missouri explores its options for conference realignment, some have wondered if the SEC is their true destination or if they should try to make a play for the Big Ten instead.
Big Ten commissioner would like to remind you that they're not interested in adding Missouri. Nothing against Mizzou, they're just not interested in expanding past twelve teams.
Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany says the league has what it wants with 12 members.
Delany said expanding the Big Ten beyond 12 teams wouldn't be appealing now because it could compromise scheduling and chemistry among the schools.
And so, conspiracy theorists who see Missouri, Rutgers, Notre Dame or someone else becoming teams No. 13 or 14 in the conference can forget about that. At least for another couple months.
Though, of course, I'm still pretty sure if Notre Dame said jump, the Big Ten would leap right into their arms.
