missouri may be the real one in trouble here. pull out those knee pads missouri! you're gonna need them.If the Big Ten decides to push to 16 teams I'd be shocked if Missouri didn't get an invite. They're a perfect fit geographically, culturally, athletically and academically.

I'm happy for Colorado. They're finally in a conference that fits them academically, athletically and culturally.

Athletically? In what downhill skiing?
I know they were part of the mighty B12 but man they have sucked at everything for past decade.
