Conference Realignment: Big 12 Has 'A Real Problem' If Missouri Leaves, Say T. Boone Pickens

When Oklahoma St. Cowboys booster T. Boone Pickens speaks, you better be sure that OSU and the rest of the Big 12 listens.

With rumors swirling that Missouri could be the mythical 14th SEC team, Pickens said "we got a real problem" if Missouri doesn't stay in the Big 12 while in San Antonio on Tuesday.

When asked who his top choices for Big 12 expansion were, Pickens said TCU and Houston make the most sense.

Adding fuel to the Missouri fire was head football coach Gary Pinkel, who reaffirmed his previous comments that the Big 12 gives Texas an unfair advantage and the Tigers should leave if that situation isn't remedied.

"I’ve been honest with comments I’ve made the last few weeks. I still stand by and stick with the comments I made.

"The Big 12 has the potential to be a great league. Hopefully, things will be fixed so it will be."

It doesn't look like the Longhorn Network is going anywhere anytime soon, so perhaps that means the Missouri Tigers will be.
