Interim Big 12 commissioner Chuck Neinas is not ready to give up on influencing Missouri to stay put in the conference despite all indications that the train has left the station with the Tigers headed to the SEC.
Folowing Friday’s action by the Missouri Board of Curators, granting University of Missouri President Brady Deaton authority to act in the best interest of the school in determining MU’s future realignment status, Neinas issued the following statement on behalf of the Big 12:
“We look forward to discussing Missouri’s future with the Big 12 Conference. The school has been involved with the Big 12 ad its predecessor conferences since 1907. It is propitious that the Big 12 Board of Directors has a regular scheduled meeting on Monday. Oviously, conference membership will be thoroughly discussed at that time.”
