It starts with rowing (http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2010/may/06/uncharted-waters-kansas-jumping-ship-join-c-usa/?sports). Where will it end up?

.Added KU athletics director Lew Perkins: “Our participation in the Conference USA Championship is a great opportunity for our program. The ultimate goal is to reach the NCAA Championships, and competing in the Conference USA Championship is a step in that direction.”

So are the other three Big XII teams (KSU, Oklahoma, and Texas) and the two SEC teams (Alabama and Tennessee) that have rowing as a scholarship sport. The driving force behind it was to get an automatic qualifier into the NCAA rowing Championship regatta each year.

THIS HAS ABSOLUTELY ZERO TO DO WITH THE POSSIBLE MIZZOU TO THE BIG 10 STUFF.

just throwing that out there as some will probably misinterpret this as something it isn't
