SEC SEC SEC!!!
With Mizzous performance thus far he might be talking about themselves...
I think Alden is saying that Mizzou might be open to an invitation from the B1G since the SEC has no exit fees. The SEC night be a bit too tough for them.
…sort of kidding...
I talked to a friend of mine last week that is a Missouri alum and lives up there. I know this is a small sampling of just a guy, his wife, and a small group of friends, but he claims there is a lot of rumbling in Missouri that they believe they now made a mistake going to the SEC. Said most would prefer the Big 10 which probably would be a much better fit for them.
Didn't they say that in the beginning? The B1G never wanted them...
And ask Nebraska how that's working out for them. What a bore... they are dying.

If Mizzou leaves, I think Virginia Tech is the most likely replacement.
Thats what i thought.
Maybe so. I just don't see a school with another SEC team in that state making it in right now. So that pretty much eliminates FSU, GTech, Clemson, etc.
I bet in two years Nebraska and Mizzou are going to be wishing they stayed in the Big 12
Haha thanks suckas

Mizz isn't going anywhere. Once they taste the money, as stated, they'll be happy.. + once they get a few games under their belts w Tenn, Ark, Vandy (those 3 i think will be their biggest 10 years down the road) and develop some rivalries they'll laugh about their old setup, not as much/as hard as we will laugha but a good chuckle indeed.
I don't think Mizzou is going anywhere either, but I also don't think the SEC is done expanding.
Would love, LOVE, for UNC to get an invite an be our perm rival.
For the women..and the football and basketball games
Would be a great idea, plus it ads another big tv market.
I still think the four 16-team super-conferences + playoffs format is inevitable. Might still be several more years before it happens though. I think Fox and the bigXII getting their TV deal with 10 teams briefly delayed the process and temporarily saved Baylor, a few other bigXII teams, and some big east teams from essentially a "death penalty" of sorts.
I believe he is talking about the Big 12 picking up two more schools. If they do, it's prolly Louisville (which will then cause the big east to expand more) and whereever they get the 12th team from then that conference will have to expand to replace that team. I'd say a UCF, South Florida, or UofH (the Florida schools for the viewers)...
Look, tu is already not liking the "Play Everyone" approach (losing to KSU and W. Va each year is not good for business). So i see them picking up two schools (like Louisville and a UofH) and breaking into two divisions. This way, tu can dominate the southern schools while dealing with the northern powers every so often (breaking up the tough spots).
UofH (or a florida school like ucf or usf)
Sure, ou and tu can still play each other every year (Bama and Tenn does it in the SEC) so its not that far fetched. Plus, they have cried about splitting OU and tu for years. Or you drop OU to the southern division and move tcu to the north.
Overall tu doesnt like the rules to the game right now. They were the best when the conference has 12 teams and two divisions with a conference championship game. Now they will expand to try and regain what they destroyed. JMO.

I know you want to believe this, but every single interview with Mack or Deloss has them saying how much they like the round robin format. They've pretty much stated that they don't want to go past 10 for anyone except Notre Dame. Yeah, that worked out great.
Their love for the 10 team model is causing a lot of anguish for Texas fans who follow realignment. We feel like we are missing the boat on good potential additions, and will be forced later on to add lesser programs.
