MU academia has wanted association with the Big 10 for over 50 years, but it never came. When the Big 10 announced expansion plans, who came first to mind? Never mind that the University NEVER said a word, wrote a word or issued a press release in that regard. They toed the corporate line with "I'm a proud member" even after they've been continually screwed over by the conference (Insight Bowl, Orange Bowl, Texas Bowl, revenues, tv appearances, Big 12 bball tourney moved to Dallas from KC, Big 12 conference offices moved from KC to Dallas, Big 12 championship football game moved to San Antonio where there's not even a freakin' Big 12 school, etc.). Now the chickens have come home to roost. In the meantime, Texas was flirting with the Big 10's Delaney via email, all the while blaming MU for instability. Texas/OU/OSU/TTU looked at the Pac10, all the while blaming MU for instability. Nebraska got offered, and left for the Big 10, blaming MU in the process when all along it has always been Texas that was a thorn in their side, from the inception of the conference. This year Texas has flirted with the ACC and the Pac12 again. OU/OSU tried to leave and go to the Pac12 but got rebuffed. STILL not a word from Mizzou.

So now, MU decides that if these other clowns are going to yank our chain every year, play musical chairs and point the finger at us every time THEY do something, then it's time we gave half of the peace sign back and struck out on our own. I, for one, am sorry to leave KSU and ISU behind. But it's time you guys showed the same backbone to the conference bullies and call their bluff if you really want to stay together with them. If not, you make your own bed...
