You didn't understand my point. I'm not saying Mizzou's recruiting wont skip a beat in Texas. It'll obviously go down a lot, and its up to them to make it all up somewhere else.
However, you were pointing at Arky instead of TA&M as some kind of Texas recruiting death-blow for Missouri. I disagree. I don't think having TA&M as their permenant cross-rival would have done much of anything for Missouri in Texas, all of that "damage" was already done by leaving the Big 12.
