Not that this is all that surprising, but it will be a new rivalry fully embraced, I believe.

Rock M Nation Weighs in on Big Ten Expansion Talk

Very interesting discussion from their point of view. As their moderator puts it near the beginning of the thread: And really, while I’m really fed up with the Big 12 in some ways, I’m not fooling myself into thinking the Big Ten would be some utopia where all of our problems would be solved and everything would be perfect. There are plenty of issues with heading to the Big Ten — two-thirds of our games would be at 11am (blech), and we’d be heading into a worse conference in terms of football and (sometimes) basketball, not to mention the fact that the Big Ten Network isn’t exactly found nationwide. And it’s unknown how much this would or would not affect our ability to recruit the state of Texas, which has obviously been a humongous part of our football recruiting strategy. Plus, as I think ZD said a while back, we’d be escaping the grips of UT, etc., … and ending up right in the grips of Michigan and tOSU. We’d get rid of some our problems and add a few more. But I’m trying to leave my own opinions/biases out of this. Between the equal revenue sharing, the fact that UM/tOSU’s grip isn’t as strong as UT’s, and perhaps most importantly, the academic boost we would see, I absolutely think Mizzou would accept the opportunity to jump, whether I think it’s a good idea or not (and I go back and forth on the idea daily).
