Heh, WVU versus Missouri in the "yes, we're technically in the Big XII and SEC" game.

Looks good!

Funny that there are so many intriguing potential matchups that aren't happening.

KU/MU
KSU or WVU/SC
OSU/UK
Texas/aTm

These would all be interesting matchups. Really, the KU/UF game is the only one that will have much appeal.

Those will happen eventually.

KU-MU is appealing locally in Kansas City but nobody around the country follows it, the FLA game will be a better draw for ESPN. I don't see why ISU or KSU isn't playing MU though since that would be interesting regionally. Not sure what the appeal of KSU-So Carolina would be since they suck under Martin anyway.

KU / MU has national appeal. The games in MU's last year in the Big 12 had huge national ratings.

In fact these conferences need to jump on the popularity of college basketball right now. The ratings for TV are huge, just look...

The problem is that people don't care about it outside the tournament. The highest rated non-NCAA tournament game drew a 2.9. In football, the highest rated non-bowl game drew a 9.8.

Why? Anything a conference can do to align themselves with the SEC lends that conference credibility.
