Big 12 Realignment: Missouri Tigers Not Given Deadline From Big 12 On SEC Decision

The Missouri Tigers will not be given a deadline on their decision as to whether or not they will join the SEC, according to interim commissioner Chuck Neinas. via cbssports.com

“There’s no timetable,” Neinas said. “Everything is in place. We’re preparing for 2012. We’ll see what occurs.”

It seems as if the Big 12 is comfortable moving foward without Missouri if that happens to be the case. This seems to be another purely financial decision because the move to the SEC doesn't make sense for Missouri a lot of different reasons that doesn't deal with more money.

From a football standpoint it would be tough to see Missouri finding much success in a dominant football conference like the SEC. And let's be honest, most of the conference realignment talk deals with TV markets for football games. Not what's best for the student-athletes.

Missouri should have a decision before the end of the academic year, if not sooner.
