Not to Dredge up Old Memories of Conference Realignment but...

Interesting interview today on KC's WHB with Gary Pinkle, HC Mizzou. Link below to the podcast. I sometimes think I have an interesting perspective here in KC, as I get to hear what fans and coaches, AD's say from at least 3 other schools in this area, concerning the Big 12, Texas, OU etc.

Pinkle basically comes out and says OU President David Boren pushed MU into the SEC, after he says the Big 12 Presidents had all agreed to stick together, then the next day Dr. Boren comes out and announces OU is looking at its options. You can call Pinkle any number of things, and you don't have to search back too long ago to find Mizzou fans ready to run him out of town, but one thing I have always found is he is pretty straight forward.

As the entire "OU is heading to the PAC 12" situation unfolded and then folded, I read with interest on this site, and others, how badly many fans thought Dr Boren had bungled this entire deal, and now if this interview holds even half true, it was worse than I thought. I have no idea what Boren was trying to accomplish, but his credibility with the other schools in the Big 12 has to be shaky at best.

I still think Mizzou is in for a rude awakening as they go to the SEC, the prevailing thought here in KC seems to be that they compare to Arkansas, it may be closer to Vanderbilt or Ole Miss. But who can really blame them for leaving?

Oh yeah, and Mizzou...you can find Tuscaloosa south and east of you...take I55...well you will figure it out soon enough.
