The Latest Nonsense On Missouri, West Virginia, Notre Dame, Etc, Etc

Color me sick of the expansion madness.  The double-crosses get old.  The wild rumors get old.  It all gets old.

That said, here are some quick bulletpoints on what’s been said this afternoon… and I’m sure this will all change in a couple of hours.  I’ve been doing radio shows all day and am prepping for a stop on CSS shortly so I haven’t spoken to many of my sources.   When I do, I’ll report back with my view on the day’s happenings.

For now, Orangebloods.com — the Rivals site covering the University of Texas — claims:


* Notre Dame is seriously considering a move to the Big 12 for all sports but football.

* Missouri officials are meeting with SEC officials in Birmingham today.

* Two Big 12 administrators say Missouri and the SEC are now targeting a 2013-14 entry for the Tigers, rather than 2012-13 which MU mentioned as the goal last Friday.

* West Virginia is the consensus choice to replace Missouri.  (Other sites are reporting that a WVU-Big 12 announcement could come today.)

* There have also been reports that Notre Dame’s interest in the Big 12 might convince Missouri to change its mind.  “Sources” told Orangebloods.com that Mizzou is being promised football games with the Irish if they stick around.


Notre Dame, NBC, Big 12, Longhorn Network, West Virginia, Big East, Missouri… if the Big 12 can pull off this monster play more power to them.  That’s a lot of spinning parts for one story and each part depends on another.

Once we’re finished with our radio shows and CSS television for the day, we’ll start working our phones.  Then we’ll try to tell you what we’re buying and what we’re not.

Anybody else sick as hell of this mess?

Oh, and the fact that national reporters write gossip on Twitter like it’s a bathroom wall doesn’t help matters.  Too many wild rumors for me to believe much of anything for now.
