Conference Realignment Update: Sept 29, 2011

Another day, more twist and turns in the continuing, exhausting saga known as conference realignment/expansion.

The major news of the day comes from the Big 12 expanding. Indications are, via twitterverse, that BYU will become the Big 12’s 10th member, and an announcement could come as early as Saturday.

The Upset Blog first broke it, “Our source confirms BYU has accepted to join the Big 12 in principle.

Then BYUDeep Throwt (AWESOME NAME) confirms it, “Decision to accept was made last night (Wednesday).”

Baylor’s paid website reported that BYU’s announcement will come Saturday.

As some others began reporting, such as Cincy’s paid site, that TCU, Louisville, Cincinnati and West Virginia will also join, giving the Big 12 14 teams.

I was waiting for confirmation from some other legitimate media outlets, but never got it.

Would the Big 12 really expand until Missouri makes its intentions known? I don’t think so. I’d be surprised if BYU makes an announcement this weekend.

Interesting how fast things can change. In the past, everything was on hold for Texas and Oklahoma and now everyone is waiting on Missouri.

Orangeblood’s Chip Brown reports that the Big 12 waiting on Missouri.

Don’t think just because the Big 12 seems to be expanding that it necessarily means Missouri will stay. I think if they wanted to stay they would have came out and made the “proud members of the Big 12” statement, and have had SEVERAL chances to do so in the past week and have not done so. Now, if they do stay, the conference would be broke into tow divisions, which would be good news for Missouri in terms of being able to compete, which they likely would be the favorites in a northern division, for division titles.

But this is what the Big 12 has come to? Replacing A&M and Nebraska with this? Bleh.

Out of the SEC, Tennessee AD David Hart says SEC will expand beyond 13. Again, I think Missouri is the SEC’s top target.

The Columbia Tribune’s Dave Matter reports that Nixon meets with Curators, projects exit fees at $23.4 million. Yesterday it was rumored to be somewhere near $40 million.

What could potentially happen to KU-MU rivalry if MU leaves? I’m hearing that KU would leave and go to the ACC if Missouri leaves.

On a lighter note, Brown tweeted that Missouri is 8-25 against Top 25 teams in the Gary Pinkel era, only to have someone respond with Pinkel winning his last against the SEC. Keep’ toolin’ it up Chipper.

As always, stay tuned…Everything will be different tomorrow.
