The prevailing thought is that Nebraska will announce on Friday their departure for the Big 10 and at least four more Big 12 schools will bolt for the Pac 10 essentially killing off the Big 12.
And MU isn't talking much. Sure, a couple of officials spoke to the media on Thursday evening but if all they knew was the above speculation, wouldn't they be running around like chickens with their heads cut off? Kansas is clearly expressing major concern for their future.
What does MU know?
After talking to various folks close to the athletic department, the feeling in Columbia is that they'll be fine. Maybe it's blind optimism, Bill Self-style, or maybe it's based on conversations with others.
But MU is confident they'll come out of this mess OK.
