Big 12 Realignment: Missouri's Gary Pinkel Says Big 12 Needs To Fix Its Problems

The Missouri Tigers decision on whether to continue with the Big 12 conference has been gaining a lot of attention over the past week. Head football coach Gary Pinkel told 610 Sports' Bob Fescue that the conference has a lot of potential. via Bob Fescue's twitter.

Gary Pinkel just told me the Big12 has the potential to be one of the best conferences yr in and yr out if it fixes its problems
The Big 12 had it's "Welcome to the Big 12" conference call for TCU on Tuesday morning and a lot of questions were being brought up about Missouri and the SEC. But Pinkel and the Tigers are reportedly happy with the addition of TCU in the Big 12. But we can only speculate at this point what Pinkel is referring to as "problems" within the Big 12.
This SEC possibility could just be leverage to fix the "problems" that Missouri currently has with the way that the Big 12 is currently set.
