MU softball coach Ehren Earleywine is one of those who profess a preference for remaining in the Big 12. But Earleywine said, "it wouldn’t surprise me" if MU wound up in the Big Ten sooner than later.
"I was just talking to my wife about that," he said. "I think the talks are getting heated up. At the end of the day, the money is going to do the ultimate talking. It’s going to make the decision. And I think there’s a lot of money to be gained."...
