Rivals Site Says Big 12 “Drafting A Release” For Missouri

Word continues to spread that Missouri and the Big 12 are hammering away on the school’s exit agreement today.  PowerMizzou.com — the Rivals site covering the Tigers — has posted the following info:


“Earlier this morning, PowerMizzou.com reported that the Big 12 was drafting a release of Missouri from the league.  The Tigers are expected to apply and be accepted to the Southeastern Conference in the coming days…

It is not know at this time if Missouri will make any sort of a statement today, but the path appears clear for the Tigers to make the move to the SEC…”


Meanwhile, it doesn’t sound like the Big 12, SEC and Big East reached a compromise on when teams could move and shuffle. 

Big East commissioner John Marinatto stated in a press release acknowledging West Virginia’s withdrawal notice:


“West Virginia is fully aware that the Big East Conference is committed to enforcing the 27-month notification period for members who choose to leave the conference.”


Yet the Big 12 still said in its own statement that WVU would be in the Big 12 next year and that Missouri would not.  It’s possible then that the Big East’s contracts aren’t as binding as the league has suggested.  That or the Mountaineers (and/or the Big 12) have enough money to throw at the Big East that they believe they can quiet Marinatto.

We shall see.
