Mizzou isnt going anywhere, they pretty much invited themselves to ride in on TAMU's tail and are enjoying the money too much. there is a reason the SEC has no buyout policy, noone is stupid enough to give up the money and leave
Meh. Nobody wants them. They are a place holder. We will process them sometime this decade.
Medical scholly IMO
Yet your prez voted them in. Let that sink in
I imagine adding Missouri feels like it did when we added USCe back in 1990. Might take them awhile but they'll be good one day.
They would make even more money in the B1G
Scored 4 touchdowns...in a single game. Polk High!
Are you insinuating I had something to do with it Harry?
No billy I don't
I was not consulted
Sorry scarlet I keep forgetting you aren't Harry
That's a compliment IMO.
No I did not lose a sig bet, but I am really really really ridiculously good looking.
I can't be mistaken for a mod in waiting. Would help my already weak rep
More importantly you don't roll trees twice per year to celebrate FCS victories
Hahaha pigs are scared
More scared of Bama... not so much LSU. Arkansas has beaten LSU recently... Bama, not so much.

I just don't see it, unless the B1G is desperate to get to 16 teams. I though Missouri would be a logical choice when the B1G was trying to get to 12 based on geography apot the potential for rivalries, but other than Notre Dame, Nebraska was a home run. Also, any new school would have to be a great academic school to be considered and Missouri doesn't fall into that category. Nebraska doesn't either, but they have the football history so the conference was willing to bend the requirements.
From the Big Ten's perspective, I think the conference would strongly consider adding Mizzou if there was a good 16th team in waiting, but there won't be for awhile. Kentucky isn't happening. Louisville and Cinci don't bring enough. Notre Dame, Virginia, and North Carolina are locked up by the new GOR in the ACC.
We aren't good academically? the only reason the AAU kicked us out is because it doesn't recognize research for agriculture, which is very big at the university. We are definitely very good academically

I want Missouri back beating those morons every year was hilarious.
Look, I'm not going to get into a a huge back and forth academic debate with you. I'm thrilled Nebraska is in the conference and as I said, they were a home run for the conference on many levels.
However, there is no denying that if it weren't for Nebraska's history in football they would not have been asked to join the conference due to academics. Of all the schools in the conference it has the least impressive academic reputation (different than saying it has a poor academic reputation) and that will not change when Rutgers and Maryland join (who were asked due to their academic reputations and increasing TV revenue). As it is Nebraska is viewed similar to Missouri in terms of academics but the conference never considered them an option. Missouri was practically begging to join and was told thanks but no thanks. If Missouri and Nebraska flipped their histories in football Missouri would be in the B1G instead of Nebraska.
I will throw in we have least population for any university in the conference, for no other reason but because I can
