Missouri To SEC Rumors: Conflicting Reports On Mizzou's Future

In the world of conference expansion we now find ourselves in, one thing is for certain: nothing's certain. That's why when The Birmingham News reports that tentative plans are in place for Missouri's move to the SEC, a counterbalance report is an inevitability. This time, it came from the New York TImes' Pete Thamel:

We need to tap the brakes on Mizzou and SEC. Been told definitively that no alignment scenario has been discussed. Will be "hot" topic.

"Definitely" sounds a lot stronger than "tentative," but I trust whatever news source is reporting that nothing has been decided, because it's clear that nothing has. I mean, Texas A&M is now behind Pittsburgh and Syracuse, thanks to a threatened Baylor lawsuit.

As rumors continue to float, just keep one thing in mind — until all the papers are signed, nothing's guaranteed. It's because of this that a comedian might be our voice of reason in all of this:

Let's just cut to the chase and put every college football team in 1 Massive Mega Super Jumbo Conference... #Enough
