MU did not. Illinois did, or at the very least was holding them before MU.

It is generally accepted that MU invented homecoming. Deal with it.

If I do little digging I can point you to a news article in MU's own newspaper from 1911 stating that they were having their own homecoming modeled after Illinois'.

Nope, but your butthurt has been prevalent throughout the thread. I could say MU uniforms are black, and you would answer back saying they are pink and ugly. You can't say anything good about Mizzou, and that shows your bias and butthurt about the whole situation.

I've never had a problem with Mizzou. One of my best friends is a MU grad, and I have always felt MU fans were pretty decent, balanced folks. But the vast majority of you have become as uppity about this whole conference thing as a KU fan in basketball season. That is distasteful. You want to go, fine. It's great the SEC is interested, but there is no need to rub it in the other school's faces. So as a fanbase, you have lost a lot of respect from me (and a lot of people). But as far as the university goes, I don't have an issue. I do think you owe it to yourselves and the rest of the conference to make an expeditious decision, that's about it.

If you look into my posts, I am quick to point out revisionist history and distortion of facts, regardless of the poster and topic. I will admit to sometimes trolling some of you. I find it a bit funny some of you don't really know how many people your stadium holds, and I've definitely poked a stick over that.

I never got the whole claiming the whole conference thing like a lot the fans of SEC teams do. It's not like Auburn is going to share their trophy from last year with the other 11 schools in the conference. I will never root for Denver, Oakland and San Diego if they make the playoffs and I sure as hell wouldn't boast about being in the AFC West if any of them won the Super Bowl. If Mizzou goes to the SEC, I'll root against our new rivals in the same manner.

I don't think Mizzou fans have been all the uppiity, given the amount of shit poured on by the KU/KSU/BIG XII community. Most Mizzou fans in this thread are cautious optimistic. We know the road ahead is tough, but have faith and hope that Mizzou's brightest days are ahead. This seems to really bother you and others...you can't stand that Mizzou might just do something great. That is fine and that is your right, but don't expect Mizzou fans to take it lying down. You keep dishing out the shit you call facts, expect to get some response from the Mizzou supporters.

It's far and away the most annoying thing in college sports. They think if one team wins then all 12 teams get a trophy, and they even print and wear conference shirts that say "SEC".

I think the SEC has done a remarkable job of branding itself. If you want to play big time college football, you go to the SEC. Its a huge recruiting advantage to all of the teams. Even the teams who have been doormats in the conference have improved significantly during the SEC's surge to dominance over the last several years. Even teams like Kentucky and Mississippi State have had a lot of recent success.

Not sure why they'd go to the Big 12 Board of Directors meeting in Dallas to announce they are leaving the conference, but whatever.


http://missouri.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=1283061


On Friday afternoon, Missouri officials announced that Chancellor Brady Deaton had been authorized to make decisions regarding the University's conference affiliation. Multiple sources have told PowerMizzou.com the first major decision from Deaton should come in the next 24 hours.

Three separate sources have told PowerMizzou.com Deaton is expected to inform the Big 12 Conference that Missouri will conditionally withdraw from the league on Monday.

There is a Big 12 Board of Directors meeting scheduled for Monday in Dallas. On Sunday, the Kansas City Star reported that Deaton would attend the meeting (http://campuscorner.kansascity.com/node/2167). Again, sources have told PowerMizzou.com the expectation is that Missouri will withdraw from the Big 12 at that time, pending acceptance into another conference.

While nothing official has happened, it is widely speculated and believed that the Tigers will become, upon their withdrawal from the Big 12, the 14th member of the Southeastern Conference. No exact timetable for that acceptance is known, though most believe it will happen by the end of the week.

Multiple sources have indicated that Missouri is likely to be placed in the Eastern Division of the SEC. PowerMizzou.com will continue to follow this story to its conclusion.

West Virginia top Big 12 candidate
By Kirk Bohls | Sunday, October 23, 2011, 01:44 PM

Two high-level Big 12 school administrators said on Sunday the conference expects Missouri to leave and will act quickly to replace the Tigers, focusing primarily on West Virginia with Louisville as a strong second candidate.
“I think that’s accurate,” one school official told the American-Statesman. “I’d say West Virginia is the leader in the clubhouse. I think we’ll come out better than before. I’d rather be with someone who wants to be with our conference than anybody who doesn’t.”
Asked why the Big 12 would be upgraded, the official said, “West Virginia has better football than Missouri, better basketball than Missouri, a better budget than Missouri and more passion among its fans than Missouri. They’re better, anyway you turn ‘em. The travel’s not good (to Morgantown, W. Va) but that’s it.”
He added there is support for Louisville, but said a lagging football program hurts its appeal.

West Virginia top Big 12 candidate
By Kirk Bohls | Sunday, October 23, 2011, 01:44 PM

Two high-level Big 12 school administrators said on Sunday the conference expects Missouri to leave and will act quickly to replace the Tigers, focusing primarily on West Virginia with Louisville as a strong second candidate.
“I think that’s accurate,” one school official told the American-Statesman. “I’d say West Virginia is the leader in the clubhouse. I think we’ll come out better than before. I’d rather be with someone who wants to be with our conference than anybody who doesn’t.”
Asked why the Big 12 would be upgraded, the official said, “West Virginia has better football than Missouri, better basketball than Missouri, a better budget than Missouri and more passion among its fans than Missouri. They’re better, anyway you turn ‘em. The travel’s not good (to Morgantown, W. Va) but that’s it.”
He added there is support for Louisville, but said a lagging football program hurts its appeal.

Love the two bolded statements above.

The first one: West Virginia has had a pretty easy road in the Big East over the past decade. I think you could put a number of Big 12 teams (Missouri, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, obviously Texas and Oklahoma, Nebraska) in that league over the past 10 years, and they'd do just as well as West Virginia (which fell off considerably after losing Rich Rodriguez and Pat White). I would have loved Missouri to be playing in that league in 2007. It would have been undefeated and in the national title game.

So I don't place much stock in the whole "West Virginia is better than Mizzou because it has been to the BCS."

Missouri and West Virginia have nearly identical athletic budgets (around $56 million). West Virginia is filling its stadium this year (with a new, exciting coach, mind you) at 92 percent of capacity. Right around what Missouri does (though they'd be around 95 percent if the GA hill seats were not counted). So those statements are also unfounded speculation.

West Virginia is better at basketball, I won't dispute that. But that's not what is driving the bus on this issue (in fact, the fact that this comment was included makes me wonder if, perhaps, it was a KU official who said this).

On the second statement...

Again, Missouri probably would have won the Big East in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2010 (and been right there in 2003, when WVU won it despite going 8-5, and 2009).

Also, does anyone else find it ironic that the official made a grammatical error in his comment about academics? "academics is" :shake:

I don't fault the Big 12 for going on the defensive here, honestly I would want to do the exact same thing if the roles were reversed. Of course they want to trash Mizzou as we are leaving and praise our replacement. Everyone is bitter. West Virginia has a pretty solid athletic department and should help keep the Big 12 one of the best football conferences as long as it sticks around.

I think everyone is ready for this saga to end so both parties can move on.

I really think the point to it is that with WVU the Big 12 is going to be getting pretty much exactly what they'll be losing in MU & gaining a pretty solid basketball program on top of it.....which equals a win for the Big 12.

In terms of football and basketball, most definitely the two programs are very similar. WVU's academics are pretty terrible, and many schools tend to coordinate on research projects with other conference members, so there could be an indirect hit there by replacing Mizzou with a school like WVU (and A&M with TCU). WVU does not bring any big TV markets but that is less of an issue for the Big 12 because there isn't a conference TV network. So purely in terms of football (and basketball with WVU), Big 12 made probably the best realistic additions they could make.

I'm taking it as spin, not shit talking. Just mildly amused by it. Here's some Mizzou spin to counter.

The Big 12 also has to deal with:

Losing four million people in its footprint (net), the No. 21 TV market, a big chunk of the No. 31 TV market. That could be hurtful when the next TV deal comes around.

Losing a strong academic partner.

The geographical displacement of WVU.

The fanbase. People want to talk about Missouri's fanbase being low class, etc? Wait till you meet the folks from Morgantown.

I wouldn't agree with that. I think each conference has different goals for expansion. Academic perception is definitely a major consideration due to the indirect impact on other conference members through research funding and prestige, but that alone is not enough to get someone like Tulane or Rice a major conference spot.

Football, TV draw (either national following or strong local markets), and academics are the main focus points and each conference ranks them differently based on their own situation. Big 12 is trying to survive and maintain its TV contracts so football is the main priority; WVU is a great fit. Big Ten wanted national following and football tradition; Nebraska is a great fit. SEC wanted major TV markets, very good academics to help the league's perception, and solid all-around athletics; A&M and Mizzou are great fits.

The quicker the Big 12 can get back to 12 the better. It doesn't matter who they bring in. They are all just place holders until Texas can get Bucklevision profitable, and then they'll decide the next move.

I'm not saying that academics are completely thrown out the window - but you & I know that this is all about football and TV's. The only academic conversation that I've seen was talk about how when/if MU moves to the SEC they will have the same # of AAU schools as the Big 12.

Mizzou has a better offer from the SEC. We told the Big XII what we needed in order to stay, and we didn't get it. Deuces.

I know how you feel. That is exactly what Eddie Fogler did to WSU, and it took one heck of a long time for them to recover. He left the cupboard totally empty. "Vanderbilt was the only school he would leave for."

Maybe it is the realization that sympathy is in order for Mizzou. It is looking more and more like 4-8 and heading to a tougher conference.

Some people could take some consolation that Mizzou is preseason ranked top 25 in BB, but that sport just doesn't matter.

KK: "Missouri will never win again. It will be impossible for them to play. They'll never have it as easy as they do in the Big 12!"

Anyone else: "Um, Kevin, Missouri actually has played the second-toughest schedule in the country THIS season. In the Big 12."

KK: "Well, of course. But once the Big 12 goes back to divisions and Missouri is in the North again, it would be FOOLISH to let that opportunity go!"

Anyone else: "Um, Kietz, the Big 12 is only going back to 12 if Missouri leaves - because there's concern just adding one of the expansion options wouldn't be enough to maintain market value. And even if the Big 12 goes back to 12, the North is likely going to have Oklahoma or Oklahoma State or both in it. as well as West Virginia. Missouri might even get moved to the South division!"

Even if ND doesn't come into the IIX, they'll still play the 'Marquee' teams here and there. I'm sure they'd end up replacing that UT/A&M Thanksgiving game with UT/ND.

And I believe sooner or later Notre Dame will be forced into a conference. I think the team that has them at that time will have a leg up on the rest of the BCS.

Or just run a wing-T.

He's the most tentative passer I've ever seen. He doesn't trust a single thing he does out there. He guides the ball and in so doing loses both his velocity and his accuracy.

We've seen him fire the football and when he does, he has some talent. But this coaching staff has failed him badly as he clearly doesn't trust a single thing that's going on out there. I don't know if it's technique, playcalling or a combination of both, but he just doesn't believe in himself.

He's killing us, just absolutely killing us. I hate it because he seems like a nice kid and someone that should be successful, but it's just not coming to him at all.

And I'm glad to see Pinkel finally learned his lesson w/r/t burning out a redshirt. Losing Franklin's redshirt did absolutely nothing to prepare him for the starting quarterback role. It appears that Pinkel sees that and is refusing to do the same w/ Berkstresser (though with Mauk waiting in the Wings, it might have actually made sense here...)

It's like a bizarro West-Coast offense.

Walsh swore by the WC offense because it made the defense cover the entire field, not just 60% of it. They need to account for the flats, the middle, etc...; not just the deep 1/3s.

Well Yost has managed to make the defense account for the flats, the middle, etc...and IGNORE the deep 1/3s. We simply don't attack downfield at all. We run bubble screen after bubble screen after quick out after quick out. We run all these damn high risk, low reward plays. We aren't even sending Egnew into those seems where he can use his size advantage to go up and get a ball or shield off a defender to make the play.

If you're only going to use 1/2 the field, at least use the deep 1/2 and pull the safeties back to help the run game. And that way, on the off chance you do complete a pass, it goes for more than 3 yards.

Instead all we do is make sure that the entire defense can cram itself into a 20 yard area and create congestion everywhere.

It's a poorly designed offense that's being poorly run. But/for the unexpected explosion of Henry Josey, this team would be abysmal. I'm hoping it's just because this O-Line isn't a very good pass-blocking line. I watched a 3rd down play on Saturday where OSU's lineman stood up, hit the LG in the chest, and the LG just went down. Man to man, head up, and the D-Lineman simply knocked the guard to his ass. It was pathetic and I knew by the end of that 2nd drive that the game was over.

I guess the line thing is possible, but it's not a hell of a lot more acceptable. They were supposed to be beyond this point. They were supposed to have depth on the lines by now. It's just disappointing to see how stagnant they've been this season.

They've barely run the bubble screen this season. They've run it so little, I've actually been CALLING for it (never thought I'd ask them to do it MORE).

I agree that Franklin hasn't hit the deep third of the field as well as possible this season. It's been strange, though. When they've run longer routes (which they've done a ton on third down, one of the reasons the conversion percentage is down so much and a staple of Dave Yost's time as OC), Franklin hasn't read/reacted quickly enough. When they've run short stuff, the D has been smothering it.

Need to change up tendencies there.

I am not giving up on Franklin yet. His running ability - though not a Pat White/Brad Smith level - is dangerous enough that teams have to respect him on the zone read (one of the reasons Josey has been so successful).

Throwing the ball, he doesn't make his reads quickly enough and his footwork is sloppy. When his footwork is good, he looks pretty solid throwing the ball. When it's bad, he's pretty awful.

Adjusting to the speed of the college game and improving footwork are both things that are workable.

To me, he's very similar to Zac Robinson at oSu. if they can get bowl eligible this year and he keeps progressing, the offense could really take a jump next season.

Of course, the expiration of the eiligibility of Wes "Runs in Quicksand" Kemp and Brandon "5-8 walk-on who plays because he blocks well" Gerau will mean that they will have to give more PT to Ladamian Washington and Marcus Lucas. Which is a good thing.

And if their goddamn fullback doesn't make a 1-handed catch behind his head and rumble for 30 yards on 3rd down (after it damn near got deflected), they're punting back to MU with 2 minutes to drive for a tie after scoring on their last 2 possessions. Throw that ball 100 more times and I'll bet he doesn't catch a single one of them, but oh well.

They won, we lost. I have to live with that. At the same time, MU came out and absolutely gave the first half to K-State w/ the poorest effort I've seen from a collective unit sense the Larry Smith era. They simply didn't come ready to play, coming off a bye week no less. Even with that, MU still had a very good chance to win that game in Manhattan.

But such is life - they got the win. That doesn't mean I have to speak of a team that's incapable of throwing the football in hushed tones. Klein is essentially a slower version of Franklin with even less talent, but Snyder's done a masterful job of hiding his weaknesses and showcasing his strengths.

In other words - smoke and mirrors.

He's a great kid, too. Really speedy. Eats up ground on DBs, kind of like Danario Alexander, even though it looks like he's jogging.

Offense will look much different next year. Lucas is probably the next guy at the H position (Egnew/Alexander/Maclin/Rucker). I think he'll be pretty explosive there.

I like Washington on the outside at the X. Moe still in the slot (Y). Eric Waters at the Z (Blocking heavy, short-routes. What Coffman played when on the field with Rucker/Tommy Saunders' poisition).

And hopefully Dorial Green-Beckham to take one of those positions away from whoever he wants. I know the kid has a friendship with and admiration of Danario Alexander, and I think their strategy is to recruit him to play the H position Danario beasted his senior year.

I'd be cool with that. DGB/Washington/Lucas/Moe would be a nice pairing with Franklin/Josey.

I suppose it's a stretch to call it garbage time, but KSU basically started playing prevent defense (albeit somewhat poorly as evidenced by the TDs we gave up). If we continued the same defense we did the rest of the game, you never get back to within a score again.

To me, a score against a prevent D is garbage.

He's a great kid, too. Really speedy. Eats up ground on DBs, kind of like Danario Alexander, even though it looks like he's jogging.

Offense will look much different next year. Lucas is probably the next guy at the H position (Egnew/Alexander/Maclin/Rucker). I think he'll be pretty explosive there.

I like Washington on the outside at the X. Moe still in the slot (Y). Eric Waters at the Z (Blocking heavy, short-routes. What Coffman played when on the field with Rucker/Tommy Saunders' poisition).

And hopefully Dorial Green-Beckham to take one of those positions away from whoever he wants. I know the kid has a friendship with and admiration of Danario Alexander, and I think their strategy is to recruit him to play the H position Danario beasted his senior year.

I'd be cool with that. DGB/Washington/Lucas/Moe would be a nice pairing with Franklin/Josey.

Washington is a guy I look at when I say I'm not worried about Pinkel's ability to re-build recruiting from the SEC.

Washington was probably our 'worst' recruit in 2009. He wasn't highly touted, wasn't highly sought after, just a tall fast kid from Louisiana that looked like an athlete.

3 years later he's looking like he could take the starting role next year from Sasser and Hunt, 2 highly touted members of (arguably) Mizzou's best ever recruiting class.

This staff simply doesn't go chasing Rivals guys. They look for athletes that fit their profile and they coach them to the offense. Guess what? There's a shitload of those athletes in SEC country. There's a bunch of *** guys out there that aren't getting offers from Florida or Georgia that this staff could do a ton with.

Now if they could just take some of those athletes and teach them to play DB.

He did make a trip to Columbia for homecoming, but it was then said that MIZ wasn't in his top 5.

The fact that Arkansas runs a prostyle offense and throws the ball all over the place and look at the receivers they will put in the NFL this year. It makes it pretty tough to see him not going to Fayettvile.

The top 3 quote that didn't include Mizzou came out after the Arkie visit, and it was from another player, who he met on the recruiting trip to Arkansas for the very first time. I have a hard time seeing a kid as quiet and reserved as DGB talking to a guy he just met about something he won't talk about outside his family.

John Beckham then said it wasn't true, that a top 3 hadn't been named.

Then he visited Mizzou for homecoming.

Missouri, Oklahoma and Arkansas all offer quite a bit to a kid who wants to be in a passing offense. And I think Jeremy Maclin has had more NFL success than anybody Bobby Petrino has coached (unless I'm forgetting someone)...

Have you watched Arkansas the past two seasons? They have receivers running all over the place and they throw it 50 times a game. Plus with Wilson coming back next year vs. Franklin?

I'm just saying if it was me and I was in his situation, Arkansas offers a better situation next year than Mizzou or Oklahoma.

I'm not saying Arkansas doesn't offer anything, not at all. And I know they have several excellent receivers this season.

Just saying Jeremy Maclin has had a better career and was drafted higher than any of those guys are likely to be. He did OK at Mizzou.

DGB also has been talking quite a bit to Maty Mauk, the QB in Mizzou's class. Mauk has family in Springfield and set up a visit with DGB while he was there to hang out and throw the ball.

Wilson is good, but DGB would only have one year to play with him. And though Franklin has had some struggles this year, he also has put up big-time performances against OU and ASU on primetime, as well as when DGB was there to watch him.

Again, not saying I don't see any allure to Arkansas. Just that Missouri has some allure, too, and it has some advantages as well.

Why do you think the decision is being made solely on next year? Arkansas doesn't have anyone behind Tyler Wilson, so who will throw DGB the ball the other two/three years he will be in school?

And he's probably only looking at a 3-yr college career, so that freshman season is going to be a big one for him.

MU had a lot of momentum in this thing going into the fall, all the way down to Mauk having been observed throwing with DGB a time or two. Too bad this season has been such a crap-fest.

I'd probably head to Arkansas as well, were I DGB. Jones is about to take off, so he may have another 'Franklin' in Oklahoma. And the original article hasn't shown that he has any ability at all to maximize a downfield WRs talents.

If you're only looking to play for 3 years at the collegiate level, Arkansas absolutely looks like the best situation to go into.

I would disagree a little that it's all about his freshman year... his sophomore and junior years will be very important for his draft position. Probably more important than his freshman year.

He seems pretty comfortable with Maty Mauk, who likely will be throwing him the ball at least his junior year and possibly his sophomore year, too (Hell, Mauk MIGHT be throwing him the ball all three years if he gets here in the spring).

Like Dj just stated, he's not gonna be anywhere for four years. The guy could probably make the jump after 1 or 2 years. No offense, I consider myself a Mizzou football fan, but looking at the style of offense Mizzou runs vs. Arkansas, I'm picking Arkansas.

Yah Mizzou has alot to offer as well, won't argue with you there. But Mauk may not start until year 3 of DGB. Prob. year 2 but who knows.

Franklin has also absolutely shit the bed against inferior teams this year. Door swings both ways.

Pinkel should just offer to make Mauk the starter if DGB will sign on the dotted line...

I think he can springboard himself to a Megatron type draft position if he comes in and rocks the world as a freshman. Then he'll get some slack for his 'sophomore slump' under a new quarterback the following year, and he'll be primed for that big junior season w/ a quarterback in his 2nd year as a starter (throwing to a nice big target).

I understand that there are a lot of plusses for Mizzou as well (Mauk being the most apparent), but if I'm him, I look at the season Mizzou has had and wonder if they haven't peaked for the next few years, especially w/ the move to the SEC.

This.

I think it will hurt MIz alot with the year they are having. Especially if LSU beats Alabama, then Arkansas runs the table and beats LSU on Thanksgiving weekend in Baton Rouge. They would prob go on to win the SEC and get a BCS bowl.

Which looks more impressive, a BCS bowl or the Holliday Bowl?

Not a knock on Mizzou, their last three qb's are in the NFL and MIzzou fans havnen't realized what they had.
