SEC Expansion: Big 12 releases statement on Missouri

From the Big 12 Commissioner Chuck Neinas: “We look forward to discussing Missouri’s future with the Big 12 Conference,” said interim commissioner Chuck Neinas. “The school has been involved with the Big 12 and its predecessor conferences since 1907. It is propitious that the Big 12 Board of Directors has a regularly scheduled meeting on Monday. Obviously, Conference membership will be thoroughly discussed at that time.” (Source)

This statement was released as a response to Missouri’s latest move toward the SEC when MU curators delegated to Chancellor Brady Deaton authority over conference affiliation. You can read more about Mizzou’s action today here.
