Is Today The Day For Missouri And The SEC?

We’ll have to rely on a lot of headlines this morning as it’s a busy day at MrSEC.com headquarters.  We’ll start with three regarding Missouri’s potential move to the SEC:


1.  MU’s board of curators literally slipped out a back exit after yesterday’s meetings in order to avoid the press.  Also, in a telling sign, Mizzou athletic director Mike Alden was included in the board’s private talks.

2.  Orangebloods.com — the Rivals site covering Texas — reports that “a couple officials at schools in the Big 12″ told the site that they expect Missouri to announce a withdrawal from that league today.  The site’s sources have also reinforced the commonly held belief that it was MU’s board of curators — and not chancellor Brady Deaton — who steered things toward the SEC.  (That story requires a subscription.)

3.  Andy Katz of ESPN.com writes that “Multiple Big 12 sources said Mizzou is leaning toward a departure to the SEC, but there is still a chance that the Missouri board of curators could decide to stay in the Big 12 with the new revenue sharing and grant of rights for Tier I and Tier II television games.”
