Regret being secure when it's clear the realignment wheels are going to keep spinning? No. Not going to happen. Regret the fanbase's level of commitment, which has led to the highest attendance levels in recent history, huge financial commitments, planned football expansion, expanded potential recruiting territory? Regret the increase in dollars to come with the SEC Network? Regret the increased profile and the improved ability to hire a top-notch coach when Pinkel is gone?
Somehow I doubt it.
As for attendance, here's fun object for you: Missouri's attendance for the last two games of the season - mighty Syracuse and mighty Kentucky - averaged more than 65k fans. For late season games, after the season had gone to shit.
