Missouri to the SEC? Kansas to the Big East? The conference realignment rumors are back!
Not one Big 12(-2) football game has been played, and there are already rumors of implosion for the 10-team conference. The unholy alliance of ESPN and the University of Texas has left Texas A&M angry that (1) UT’s Longhorn Network wants to broadcast high school football games and (2) the network also wants to air a Big 12 conference game (Big 12 commissioner Dan Beebe has put a moratorium on both).
If both happen, A&M is apparently ready to bolt to the SEC. The big shots in the Big 12 are meeting today in Dallas to sort out these issues, so everything could come to a head soon. If ESPN and Texas hold firm and A&M decides it wants to join the sketchiest conference of them all, where does that leave Missouri, Kansas and Kansas State?
