Big 12 In Trouble As Missouri Begins 'Exploring Options'

Things may have taken a turn for the worse for the Big 12 conference as Missour's Board of Curators met on Tuesday and appointed Chancellor Brady Deaton to explore all conference realignment options. Deaton had served as chair of the Big 12's board of directors and on its committee on expansion but his role in that capacity has apparently come to an end

Missouri has long been rumored as a potential target to become the 14th member of the SEC. Today's announcement has to come as a bitter disappointment to the Big 12 who recently had been working on changes to the way the conference shares its television revenue in hopes of solidifying the nine existing members of the conference. It appears now that all of that may have been for naught. 

The Kansas City Star's Mike DeArmond:

My prediction: Missouri is out of the Big 12 Conference and into the SEC by next season.
