Today's Missouri links. Topics include, of course, the latest in conference realignment.
On June 3, Beebe pushed for Deaton to declare allegiance to the Big 12. Beebe sent an e-mail to Deaton after reading an Associated Press story about the Big 12 spring meetings that included a quote from Deaton that said, "We’re not shutting our ears to anything."
Beebe wrote: "I admire you greatly Brady, but the quote at the end of this article, which is being written about throughout the country, is what is damaging us so badly. We have to have an unequivocal commitment in a few days!!"
In light of the news that schools must surrender buyout money from Nebraska and Colorado leaving the Big 12 to Texas, Texas A&M and Oklahoma, Missouri has enlisted Patrick Henry to speak on its behalf...
Unbelievable. The five "leftovers" (KU, KSU, ISU, BU, Mizzou) agreed to sign over their share of CU/NU's buyout money to UT/OU/A&M.
Things continue to move at the speed of light with realignment, as the Big 12 releases its new logo.
"The latest information, which was relayed to PowerMizzou.com late last night is that the Aggies may have told the SEC they would like Missouri to be included in that league's expansion as well."
