Missouri has an offer from the SEC

Mike DeArmound of the Kansas City Star is reporting that Missouri has an official offer from the SEC. DeArmound says the conference is willing to wait to see if the Big 12 implodes before Missouri responds.

It’s all finally taking shape.

    Heck yeah Let Mizzo in. And as icing on the cake ask KU in also. I wouldn’t mind having Jayhawk lunches a couple of times a year.

    Wait and see??? This is musical chairs Mizzou! You take what you can get while you can get it or you’re going to be standing with your d**k in your hand.

    Immediate reaction: The TAMU girls are much hotter than the Mizzou girls, based on the evidence provided.

    That’s the best picture you can find of Mizzou girls? Maybe they shouldn’t be allowed in the SEC afterall.

    Now THIS is most likely a true statement. I would love to add them. Great geographic and T.V. market fit. Not a laughing stock in football, pretty decent basketball, sounds good to me.

    I agree with 3. Ask KU and WVU and our expansion would have added 4 whole states with (rough) geographical agreement with a boost to football, basketball, and T.V. Market. Win, Win, Win.

    See, the SEC didn’t want UofL at 14… That was such a joke…

    8. WVU has already been turned down by the SEC (as of now). They asked to join and both the SEC and ACC said no.

    This stinks. I want basketball impact. I am first and foremost a basketball fan, and seeing what the ACC just did, I am jealous. I’d much rather have KU. At least for now, Mizzou/UK or TAMU/UK hold about as much excitement as Auburn/UK, which is to say, not much. These are dud games for my viewing pleasure.

    Mizzou is not a good choice, they are middle of the road in every aspect of their program. Go get Kansas or even Oklahoma State. More average teams means a more average conference.

    Add Missouri and then go for 2 more in the East. Va Tech & NC State

    Lets go.

    None of the Kansas teams are coning to the SEC, shake it off.

    UL fans should be fighting going to the SEC; they will have to give up their beer sales, and they will get killed every year in football & baseball. Worst of all, UL would have to live in the conference in an even bigger shadow being UK. There is no way in hell Pitino wants to be in the same conference as Cal/UK !

    I’ve read the posts on here and I think Mizzou is underestimated in football. I’m a life-long UK fan from Shelbyville and went to UK, but I’ve lived in St. Louis since ’99. Being somewhat local to Missouri athletics, I can tell you that UK will have a difficult time beating Gary Pinkle’s teams. They have been ranked consistently for the last few years and were even in the running for a BCS Championship a few years ago.
    With that said, I would be happy to have MU in and they are certainly beatable in basketball (Haith replaced Mike Anderson). Arkansas and Missouri would be a nice border rivalry and far western Kentucky shares a little bit of border with Missouri. Personally, I would love to have the short hour and a half drive to Columbia to see Kentucky play. Columbia, MO is a great college town. I’ve been there often doing business.

    Missouri is a natural fit in the SEC. It gives Kentucky another in-conference border-state rivalry along with Tenn and Vandy.

    #7 – “Great geographic and T.V. market fit.” Except that is isn’t at all a great geographic fit and Mizzou has next to no TV presence. Nobody in St Louis watches Mizzou and even fewer in Kansas City do. Joining the SEC and providing below-average teams will not change that.

    This has nothing to do with whether or not a school is good/bad at anything…it’s location, location, location. New media market for the SEC. That’s the issue with UofL, Georgia Tech, etc. We don’t need them to make more money.

    Mizzou is NOT a southern school. Time to rename the conference

    #24 – Yes, St. Louis is a pro-sports town (Cardinals, Rams, Blues) but there is solid interest in Mizzou athletics here. The alumni base is strong here. The advantage is for recruiting for UK by reaching the St. Louis TV market. Billy Donovan has recruited well at Chaminade and Duke has pulled some out of Cardinal Ritter High. There have been times where a UK game on CBS has been replaced locally by an Illinois game and I’ve been left scrambling for Internet streaming.

    @26 — a lot of confs will need to be renamed.

    I like that The St Louis Dome (RCA/Edward R Jones/???) will be added to the SEC Tourney rotation. Atlanta is nice, but 6 hrs. St Louis is 3.5 hours with casinos and LaClede’s Landing.

    While KU woulda been nice… Def like Mizzou over the battery throwing mountain goat hicks of WVU

    Missouri blows, I dont see how you turn down WVU or even UofL to take Missouri? It shows that money talks because Missouri offers nothing but a TV market and that is it campus blows, facilites blow,town blows and worst of all they gave us Pat Forde

    For the SEC to be the “most wanted chick in school” and end up with Texas A&M and Missouri they really lost out since it looks like the Pac 12 will get UT and Oklahoma, and the ACC for certian has picked up Pitt and Syracuse, it looks like the SEC didnt get an invite to the dance or something and had to take their cousin(s)

    Thank goodness we don’t have to compete to get an invite…especially since football is the currency of the realm in realignment.

    Welcome to the SEC Mizzou.

    To be truthful about it…I think the Missouri invite story was leaked by them to encourage an invitation to the B1G

    It’s all about TV markets for the SEC. Other conferences are scrambling trying to add whoever just to add teams. We’re already so strong in football that its only about new markets.

    Let’s let Memphis in the league, if we are looking at a basketball team, Kansas is right up there usually.
    What about that mess I heard that Arkansas was going to leave SEC and join Big 12, guess that is incorrect now.

    Mizzou has had more players drafted in the first round than any team other than Alabama over the last five seasons, is the only school in the country to have each of their last three starting quarterbacks currently in the NFL and are one of 15 teams to win 40+ games since the start of 2007 along with…

    Boise State, Alabama, Florida, Ohio State, TCU, Oklahoma, Virginia Tech, Utah, LSU, Oregon, Texas, USC, West Virginia, BYU, Penn State and Wisconsin

    …that sounds like a very legitimate football program to me. Obviously Mizzou works from a dollar-generating perspective by expanding the footprint and adding two major TV markets, but let’s not sleep on what they actually bring from a competitive standpoint.
