Complete BS. Pinkel has been very vocal, almost to a fault, about his distaste for the Big12. Saying he doesn't favor a move is ridiculous. It's fitting that this post was from a user named "captaincrap".

He has been, and that is discussed further in the thread.

However, that particular poster is very well connected. Believe it or not, I don't care, but he is always dead on.

There are some good points made in that thread. A move to the SEC is just going to make Pinkel's job more difficult, to be relevant.

But, IMO, it may give him more time with some that are growing impatient. I honestly thought everybody was in love with him until yesterday, but that isn't true.

However well connected he is, he's wrong on this one (or his sources are).

Pinkel wants this. Alden wants this. The only people involved who needed to be sold on it were Erdmann and Deaton, and they were sold on it.

Pinkel has been a strong supporter of the move, pushing behind the scenes. Learning this was one of the reasons I switched my stance on Mizzou to the SEC (as well as the constant clown show from the Big 12).

I don't understand why anyone would think Haith would be against this. Missouri would be a strong contender in SEC hoops, and his ties are to the Southeast as far as recruiting goes. This only helps with that.

And baseball... well, it's really a similar situation as in the Big 12. Still some competitive problems due to weather, but this is the sort of move that might find funding for an indoor practice facility for the baseball team. That's what Missouri needs to really improve as a baseball program. (That, and better luck - the Tigers have been hit much harder by baseball draft recently than they're used to).

Proof? No, no one does. But numerous Mizzou insiders, the guys that have called the SEC move from the beginning and have the staff connections to announce commits before PowerMizzou, have said unanimously that the football coaching staff is on board and have been one of the driving forces behind it.

Pinkel would never have spoken out on LHN and the inequality in the Big 12 if he didn't know we had an ace up our sleeve with the SEC. He has zero concern over job security and will be at Mizzou until he retires (probably 2017 after his extension). Haith and the basketball staff are on board as well, but frankly it doesn't matter to them where we go and they don't have a ton of say anyways. It is probably true that Jamieson doesn't love the move, he will get exposed in SEC baseball.

Yes, because getting the exact date on announcement timing is much more relevant than actually calling the story from the beginning when no one was talking about it.

And clearly the SEC is out of the loop too since the date on their Mizzou to SEC story was old. Dumbasses, amirite?

I guess 3 separate sources can be wrong on the exact date of the announcement when saying it will be tomorrow, but they can't be wrong on the rest of it from 3 months ago....




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.[/quote]

- If you want to believe that a random K-State poster has closer connections to the Mizzou coaching staff than numerous Mizzou insiders that have called moves before they've been announced publicly for years, be my guest. I guess that's really all you have left now that it is obvious Mizzou is leaving the Big Leftover for $EC.

This is coming from a nonMU fan. The b12 is dying, their only hope is a merger with the bEAST into a new conference. Even though the bEAST is the best conference name ever.

If the press release was dated Saturday, MU wasn't actually withdrawing from the Big 12 until Monday per PowerMizzou.com & his "3 separate sources".

I mean, how could 3 separate sources hear the exact same thing and be wrong on announcement that is supposed to happen tomorrow?

SEC officials said Friday that the league's web vendor mistakenly published a news release Thursday night announcing Missouri as the conference's newest member.

Missouri officials are currently deciding whether to leave the Big 12 for the SEC. But, judging from the news release published on the SEC's website for a few minutes Thursday night, Missouri apparently already has made up its mind.

The news story on the SEC site had a release date of Oct. 31.

Theory is that ND has to move all of their other sports to the Big 12.

The Big 12 would hold them to playing 4-5 football games with Big 12 opponents on a rotational basis.

Some say it would be a longshot for ND to agree to play in smaller stadiums but then again they are going to have to put all their other sports somewhere so who knows.

It stands to reason that Big East is a dead league. ND likely has 3 options for the non-revenue sports. ACC, Big 10 and Big 12. Neither the ACC or the Big 10 will allow partial membership. So, ND will either join a conference fully, or go to the Big 12.

Assuming the Big East does completely collapse. If the Big East remains viable in basketball and other sports, ND might not do anything. I don't see that happening necessarily, but anything is possible with the conferences at this point.

TCU and West Virginia on same revenue-sharing plan

There will be no difference in how Big 12 Conference revenue is shared between the Big 12's new members, who both plan on entering the league in 2012.

"It's similar; it's the same," said Big 12 interim commissioner Chuck Neinas.

Official details have not been disclosed, but the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported earlier this month that TCU would earn 50 percent of the expected $17 million payout in the 2012-13 academic year, 67 percent in 2013-14, 84 percent in 2014-15, and 100 percent in 2015-16

Don't count out Louisville to Big 12 just yet

BY BERRY TRAMEL
Published: October 30, 2011

Chuck Neinas says the Big 12 is finished expanding for now. And you can trust him, so long as you don't get too picky about what “now” means.


Don't count out Louisville to Big 12 just yet.

The Big 12 added West Virginia on Friday, leaving Louisville in the wretched Big East. The Big 12 might be a pirate ship, but at least America wants to watch the Bluebeards play football.

But don't count out Louisville coming on board, too. And maybe sooner rather than later.

A Big 12 source told me that despite what Neinas said Friday, the conference has not settled on 10 as an ideal number. In fact, there could be a push to also invite Louisville soon and bring the membership to 11.

Make the West Virginia/Big East negotiation a two-school affair. Strength in numbers.

Eleven is an odd number in more ways than one. But the Big Ten had 11 members for 20 years.

At 11, the Big 12 could stand pat and try to work a deal for Notre Dame as an associate member, in all sports but football. At 11, the Big 12 could stand ready to easily get back to a full 12-team league with divisions and a championship game, no matter whether the 12th team is manna from Heaven (Notre Dame) or another Big East refugee (Cincinnati).

At 11, the Big 12 would have scheduling options. Stick with the nine-game league schedule, which means each football team would skip one conference opponent a year.

Or even better, the Big 12 could go to a 10-team league schedule. Coaches wouldn't like the severity of such a task, but it would greatly enhance the Big 12's television package. More inventory; more quality games.

West Virginia got the nod over Louisville primarily for television purposes. The Mountaineers are a brand name on the gridiron. Louisville wouldn't add value to the network contracts. But if Louisville meant a 10-game conference schedule, well, that's different. That's 55 conference games; that's a lot of good football.

Plus, Louisville brings other benefits to the Big 12. Across-the-board athletic success. The Cardinals beat OSU to go to the 2007 College World Series. The Cardinals beat OU in the 2009 Women's Final Four.

And Rick Pitino's team has been known to play a little basketball. I know conference realignment is football driven, but a school that can put the Big 12's name in lights in March is a handy bonus.

So I would invite Louisville quickly, and some in the conference agree, no matter what Neinas says.

The interim commissioner seemed to bring some stability to the conference when he arrived a few weeks ago. But last week was a total mess.

An invitation to West Virginia, then rescinded. Then the invite restored, a couple of days later. From what I know, Neinas wasn't culpable. Sounds like presidential meddling.

But then the Big 12 put out a press release that basically said Missouri was gone, when Mizzou hasn't bolted yet. And then Neinas said the Big 12 hadn't even discussed the idea of returning to 12 teams, which is pure nonsense.

Not only have presidents of several universities — including David Boren and Burns Hargis — publicly stated their preference for 12 schools, sources say the idea has been bantered about on the expansion committee.

To say otherwise means Neinas is either confused or, even worse, a Texas puppet, since DeLoss Dodds is a member of the 10-team party.

Nothing against Dodds or his preference. But when the commissioner erroneously declares the Big 12's position, there's a problem.

The Big 12 managed to turn what should have been a celebration moment – West Virginia coming in – into another league embarrassment. The Big 12 pitted schools from another conference against each other. That's bad form.

The best way for this league to restore its tattered image is do what it's done this autumn. Win a bunch of football games. But the next-best way is to adequately replace the quality programs that have departed.
West Virginia qualifies. So does Louisville.

You cant have a Conf. Championship game with 11. A big reason why B1G wanted to get to 12 schools. Lots of TV revenue in those Championship games.

Well, some of the schools don't want a championship game, and I think a championship game would fall under the Tier 1 rights, not Tier 2. So, since those negotiations are a few years away, they could very easily go to some 11 game rotation, possibly with ND as an associate member, and then evaluate the situation as the 1st Tier nears.

I thought it was decided that Texas wanted to add West Virginia only to stay at ten teams. If that's the case, that is what will happen. OU needs to realize their opinion is irrelevant.

Frankly, I think the Big 12 should stay at ten. Adding Louisville and Cincinnati will dilute the football brand quite a bit. Replacing Mizzou and A&M with WVU and TCU will keep the Big 12 as one of the top three football conferences, which is what UT is probably focused on.

I thought it was interesting after the Big XII reconfirmed WVU as the choice you heard next to nothing from the Louisville camp. There was a big stink when it was first announced, everything died down quickly, then they announced WVU, and there was very little comment afterwards from Louisville.

I think the Big XII told them to be patient, they were going to come in, they just needed to check on some contingencies first and then give them their own day. I think they'll stand pat at 11 and ND will be a non football participant while playing 4-6 games a year against Big XII opponents. That prospect was probably enough for FOX to adjust the 2nd Tier. Go a couple years like this, and then when 1st Tier negotiations start up they can look to go to a permanent 12, whether that means ND as a continued non-football participant or a full member.

That way, the Big XII can negotiate 1st Tier with a conference championship as part of the package while enjoying the best possible benefit from the 2nd Tier.

I think the big issue surrounding the Big 12 is having 10 teams to save the TV contract. If WVU gets out of the Big East, I don't see why they would keep Missouri around if they want out.

In my opinion, the push to get WVU in next year is to allow Missouri to go and yet save the TV contract.

I'm not sure why the Big 12 would want to play the season with 11 teams.

Considering most anti-Mizzou folks in this thread seem to think that Mizzou will be paying 20 million or more, a six million dollar exit fee would be a clear victory for Mizzou.

From what I have read, the league hasn't even begun to negotiate exit fees with aTm yet, despite the university pestering the conference to do so.

The "if" is settled. It's the "when" that is still up in the air. The Big XII doesn't care about us, but they won't let us leave without paying a ton. Basically, the question becomes how much is it worth to Mizzou to get the fuck out of the diseased conference.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala.—Missouri will be officially announced as the SEC’s 14th team early next week, a high-placed SEC source told Sporting News on Saturday afternoon.

When asked Saturday about a pending Missouri announcement, SEC commissioner Mike Slive declined comment.

The school is expected to join next year after negotiating its buyout from Big 12.

Missouri chancellor Brady Deaton canceled a business trip to India scheduled to run through the second week of this month. A high-placed SEC source also said Missouri would be placed in the East Division to avoid any potential scheduling conflicts with longstanding conference rivalries.

There are numerous reasons the SEC and Missouri held off on announcing the news sooner, including Missouri’s negotiations with the Big 12 on exit fees. Another reason the SEC held off: Administrators wanted the league’s marquee game—Saturday’s LSU at Alabama, No. 1 vs. No. 2 matchup—to be the focus of the news cycle over the last two weeks.

Missouri, like Texas A&M, will be a complete conference member from the day it is officially announced and will share equally in the league’s revenue.

Slive did say the SEC will “look into” restructuring contracts with television partners CBS and ESPN. Industry sources say the SEC is looking into creating a separate network for the league’s nonconference games. The thinking is that the league’s 14 teams would bundle low-tier nonconference games into a separate network.

In other words, there would be 14 more games of inventory for the SEC to sell and for television networks to advertise. Those games likely would be lower-tier games, such as Alabama’s game against Georgia Southern on Nov. 19.

http://espn.go.com/college-sports/story/_/id/7197599/missouri-move-sec-planned-week-source-says

Missouri's move to the Southeasten Conference was finished Friday, a source confirmed to ESPN.com on Saturday.

The Tigers' move from the Big 12 to the SEC is expected to be announced next week. The source said the SEC and Missouri opted to put off the announcement because they didn't want to upstage the LSU-Alabama football game Saturday night.

The Sporting News first reported the deal's completion Saturday.

Missouri is expected to join the SEC East in football with Florida, Kentucky, Vanderbilt, Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee, the source said. Fellow Big 12 member Texas A&M will be in the West with Auburn, Alabama, Arkansas, LSU, Ole Miss and Mississippi State.

SEC men's basketball went to one division this season but it's unclear if that will continue with 14 teams.

Missouri's move to the SEC in 2012 could mirror West Virginia's to the Big 12 in 2012 in its uncertainty. A source said Missouri could have trouble getting out of the Big 12 because the league isn't sure if it can get the Mountaineers in from the Big East next season.

West Virginia filed a lawsuit to get out of the 27-month exit agreement with the Big East. The league has countered with a suit of its own. If West Virginia can't get out of the Big East then the Big 12 will try to keep Missouri for 2012 to avoid dropping below 10 schools.

The Big 12 needs 10 schools to meet television agreements, but more importantly, to fill scheduling dates. The Big 12 already replaced Texas A&M with TCU for 2012. The Horned Frogs went from the Mountain West to the Big 12, bypassing their original plan to go to the Big East.

Missouri's departure to the SEC will follow the league's expansion plan of adding schools in new markets and states (Missouri/St. Louis, Texas/Houston). It also bumps up the SEC's number of Association of American Universities from two to four with the additions of Texas A&M and Missouri. Vandy and Florida were the only two AAU members in the SEC.

Your right. They took a junior membership, MU took to throwing itself at the Big 10 not once, not twice, but at least 3 times and getting rejected each time.

Seriously, congrats on the SEC and the full membership. I'm sure it's going to work out great for MU.

Supposedly the B1G offered Mizzou an even shittier version of a junior membership than Nebraska got. That was when the Texas and Oklahoma teams were going to the PAC. It was a shitty offer, but it would have been better than nothing if the conference fell apart and the SEC offer didn't materialize.

Fortunately, Mizzou wound up in the best conference in the country. We'll see where Kansas winds up once Texas and ESPN pull the plug on LHN. That's really the biggest wildcard on the horizon.

It's possible. I don't see it happening, but it's possible.

Lots of schools have football only or bball only contracts for non-con.

I think they will work out a deal and do both, and Self can take the high road and say he did it "for the fans of KU"... no one loses face, and the fans still get to see the game, both schools profit, everyone wins.

Laughable.

The only time you could say Missouri "threw itself" at the Big Ten was in the first round of this last year (and that's a stretch based on comments made by Missouri's governor, not anyone who actually who works for the university).

Why is shopping your school to a better conference supposedly embarrassing? If you live in the ghetto and are seen house-shopping in the suburbs, is that embarrassing? No. Heck, Missouri even ended up in a better neighborhood than the one they started looking at. It probably had more to do with the B10's courting of Notre Dame than anything else, and it turned out to be a blessing in disguise.

Now that the Mizzou situation appears to be settled, where does the KU to the PAC situation stand?

With about as good of chances as as Missouri's prospects of competing in the SEC. But, hey, at least your stable now.

I think Mizzou will be just fine in SEC East, especially if we get a qb next year.

Franklin will be the QB for the next 2 years, and he's going to be a stud.

I hope you are right. Can't recall the names, but there were a couple of qb prospects floated out there for Mizzou. But if Franklin can step up his game to the next level, that would be awesome too.

Berkstresser and Mauk are both excellent QBs. Mauk will be a Freshman next year, Franklin's Junior season, and he'll likely redshirt. He and Berkstresser will compete after Franklin leaves. That would be Mauk's Sophomore season and Berkstresser's Junior year.

Cool. Thanks for the info. Here's hoping that Franklin makes a big step up this year and next.

I'm rooting for Berkstresser because he's a Missouri kid, but you can't help being floored by Mauk's high school stats. If we stick with the pure spread in the SEC, he's likely the better candidate. I suppose it depends on how he transitions to college.

Oh and their basketball team just lost at home to Northern Kentucky.

Fascinating stuff from the Tulsa World - OU's emails during the conference realignment saga.

Shows how Beebe and Boren and many Big 12 admins were emailing each other links to media pieces based on speculation...such as Beebe emailing a report from OrangeBloods.com about OU leaving the Big 12 to David Boren asking him to call him about it...just amazing stuff. Boren even emailed Pete Thamel at the NYTImes once to dispute Thamel's view of OU's academics. Goes to show how much these guys had no idea what was going on and was relying on media speculation to get info...the same info we were all using.

Fascinating stuff. Shows how out of touch some of these AD's and university presidents are. Did not read them all, just skimmed them, but it does provide an interesting picture.

David,

I hate the University of Oklahoma. Really, I do! I'm a University of Missouri fan, however the thought of the Big 12 disbanding is something I hate even worse. You control this. Your the most powerful man in College Athletics right now. If you decide to take the University of Oklahoma to the Pac-12, it will leave Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas State, Kansas, and MU out in the cold. Now, I'm a business man, I understand business. You could care less what happens to these other colleges. Hell I would care less too if I was the President of the University of Oklahoma, but would moving to the Pac 12 be a great move for OU? Yeah money money money, a new start, but also more competition longer flights and
less chance of making the BCS. Why don't you let this Big 12 (with 10 teams) play out a few years. GET DAN BEEBE FIRED. Try to recruit Notre Dame Football, BYU, and Arkansas. I personally don't think the SEC wants to expand, maybe they could just switch out A&M for Arkansas (far fetched but still a maybe).

Again, I HATE OU. That won't change if OU heads west in the GOLD Rush of the Pac-12 or stays in the Big 12. Obama got elected on his promise of "CHANGE". America voted and made a change. What has that "Change" done for us this great country? He promised America the grass was greener on the other side and we found out its just as brown as it was before. I emailed Mike Alden before he hired Frank Haith, you can email him ask. I told him my opinion. After he hired Frank Haith, I sent him another email about how much of a mistake he made. I said the hiring of Haith will be Quinn Synder all over again, and sure enough scandal has engulfed him before he has even coached a game. Maybe it was luck, maybe it wasn't. My gut says OU will regret making the move to the Pac 12. Guess we will see if I keep batting a thousand.

Good Luck,

Aaron Brandt

If change is must, fire Dan Beebe and see what happens.
