Oh, come on. No way the SEC would want MU instead of WV. No way would WV rather be in the SEC than the Bog 12. Clearly what happened was that WV was dying to get into the Big 12, so the Big 12 kicked Missouri out for such a massive upgrade, and the SEC became so frightened they added Missouri in a panic move their certainly regret, or they will after their media deal gets negotiated downward as the Big 12 has clearly passed them up in football.
