Missouri Back to Big 12 in Wrestling
« on: April 23, 2021, 04:00:13 PM »
What does anyone else think about Missouri returning to the Big 12 as an affiliate in wrestling? I call it good news for Missouri and the Big 12.

It strengthens the Big 12, for sure. Will make the tournament more fun.
Imagine the good that could be done, if people were less worried about their differences, and more worried about doing good for everyone.

Sounds like a good thing for Big 12.  Mizzou has been pretty good. 

Now for the $1000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 question.   Where were they?

I will accept this if there was a considerable amount of groveling by this conference traitor.

To me this reminds me of the philandering old husband wanting some nookie on the side that he's not getting from his current wife and he doesnt think his current girfriend is all that good at what he's not getting from his wife.

But the old girlfriend misses providing that nookie.

The MAC since all other sports at Mizzou moved to the SEC.  What's behind the move.?  The MAC schools took some pretty significant financials hits over the past year due to COVID.  I suspect wrestling is on the chopping at more than a couple.and it jeopardize the MAC as a wresting conference.

Moving from one weak conference to another. No big deal.
