I know yall don't give a frick what Clay Travis's opinion is, but I'm posting it anyway.

I've got to believe Missouri is burning up the phone lines to Big 10 right now.

They would have to, unless they add a third new team in the west (Kansas?).

We might be going back to the old (2 permanent, 1 rotating) schedule.   Who's ready to play Tennessee again every year?

I suppose they could flip one of the East teams to the West and move both bammer and Allbarn.  Maybe Tennersee?  Vandy?  Personnally, I'd rather see the current West stay intact on account of the fact that I hate all those fuckers and want to beat up on them at every chance we gets.

Now SEC is denying the Mizzou rumor. This is a crazy week in NCAA.

Likely just posturing on both sides a little. Mizzou desperately has always wanted to be in the big-10.

I'm almost at the point where I think we should stay at 13 teams for a year. All of this drama over second tier schools like WVA and Mizzou really just make us look bad and keep the fans on edge.

Culturally I think WVU is a much better fit than Mizzou.  Mizzou fans think they belong in the Big 10 because of their midwestern ties and academic superiority.  People keep talking about the KC and STL TV markets, but people up here don't really care about cfb and the media hardly talks about it.  On the other hand, maybe that would change if their division included AR/LSU/Bama instead of ISU/KU/KSU.

Which will make the LSU/WVA game even more interesting.

If you are from the South and identify with WV culturally, I am sorry to hear that.  What about WV is a good fit culturally with the South?  Starkville, the state was formed because it didn't want to be a part of the South, and their football rivalries are not with southern schools.

According to a survey that I took on the U.S.S. Enterprise about 18 years ago, no one from other parts of the country identifies WV as being in their region, and I am talking about people from bordering states like VA, PA, OH, and Maryland, who composed at least a quarter of the participants.

I don't see Missouri fans burning couches, FOIAing a coach's cell phone records, burning another team's van, poisoning any trees, or even knowing how to really tailgate for that matter.  Not enough passion up there for football.  

Although, their sorority girls did get Larry Eustachy drunk a few years ago and Quin Snyder snorted cocaine at halftime of their basketball games.  They are clearly a basketball first school.

I like the idea of adding Missouri just because of how much fun it would be to see Mike Anderson whip them on the hardwood.

I would guess that 1 of 2 things are going on(yes this is somewhat a captain of the obvious post)...

  • 1. Missouri sees the Big12 imploding and is trying to make themselves look like a hot commodity, hoping for an offer from the BigTen, or
  • 2. The SEC really does want Mizzou but not until the Big12 blows up on it's own, so it can continue to appear to sit back and let teams in rather than poaching them from other conferences.

Which Enterprise? Kirk or Picard?

I visited the Enterprise back in the early 70's as a Marine. Same ship (CVN-65)? Semper Fi.

I'll just ignore the fact that this is a survey you personally did 18 years ago...  So your argument against WVU in the SEC is that people from Big 10 and ACC country don't think WV fits as part of their region?  

How does WVU fit in the SEC better than Mizzou?  Other than this-  
I don't see Missouri fans burning couches, FOIAing a coach's cell phone records, burning another team's van, poisoning any trees, or even knowing how to really tailgate for that matter.  Not enough passion up there for football.  
 

There's also the fact that every college football fan has heard about Morgantown and night games at WVU. Columbia never comes up in the discussion of great college towns or great football environments.  I could drive 2 hours to Columbia, MO to a game, but I would be more excited about flying halfway across the country to go to Morgantown.

On a totally non-important note, just look at the current coaches.  Gary Pinkel makes Nick Saban look exciting.  Dana Holgorsen would be a great character for the SEC.

According to the ESPN scroller, Mizzou "unofficially" accepts SEC invite.

Hillfolk aren't Southern or Northern. Hillfolk are Hillfolk. Many of them in Southern states supported the North, including ones in Arkansas. At least WV has a passionate fanbase which MU doesn't. They wouldn't be my first choice but I'd still rather have them over MU which is a whole bunch of meh.

If the Big-12 survives which it looks like It will now. Then Missouri isn't going anywhere. If TAMU still decides to come we will start to hear a LOT more TCU and Louisville rumors.

If the OK schools stay and the the Big12 survives for now I don't think MO has the balls to leave on their own.  The immediate question becomes do we take the couch burners now or just stay at 13 until this aMm all starts again next year.

Of course, this will probably all change before we wake up tomorrow.  No one knows what the frick is going on, not even the college presidents.

I agree. It is bound to change 100% again within hours. SEC is looking pretty good at being selective and slow in this process. I was reading Mizzou forums all day. Their fans really do not want any part of the SEC. So this is a win for us so far in my opinion.
