This isn't about Missouri. Nobody cares about Missouri. Stay, go, drop football, get mad all over again that the Insight Bowl invited Iowa State. Doesn't matter. If only Missouri leaves the Big 12, the league is fine. Heck, the league thrives. TV revenues wouldn't go down, plus there's one less mouth to feed. Heck, the NCAA might even give the Big 12 a waiver and let it keep the football championship game.

Ah, Berry Tramel, penning perhaps the most short-sighted column about expansion yet. According to Berry, if you have a tradition of success in football, you're important and people care about you. If you don't, nobody cares about you. This gives me an opportunity to rant for a second. All weekend long, ESPN has been harping about how Oklahoma is the second-biggest catch for the Pac-16 besides Texas. Really? I mean, really? Does nobody understand the idea of conference expansion? This isn't about football, people: it's about money. If you think Oklahoma and its 45th (OKC) and 61st (Tulsa) ranked media markets is a "catch" with regards to conference expansion, then you have failed to grasp the very essence of why anyone is interested in conference expansion in the first place. In terms of conference expansion, Oklahoma is basically a crimson and cream New Mexico with a better football team. Oh wait, ALBUQUERQUE IS A BIGGER MEDIA MARKET THAN OKLAHOMA CITY. /rant
