I believe from what I have heard, the executive of the Big 12 conference committe right now is the President of Missouri. So that means that at all the same time he is:

- In talks with Texas and Oklahoma to keep the Big 12 together.
- In talks with the Baylor, Iowa St, Kansas, and Kansas St in addition to the Big East leftovers to negotiate a merger between the two conferences.
- In talks with the SEC on a potential application to the SEC conference
- And given Missouri's begging of the Big Ten last year, you know they are also trying to leverage their SEC offer to get the Big Ten offer they have always wanted.

So in summary, you have the Missouri President in ongoing negotiations (in an official capacity) with the Big 12, Big East, SEC, and Big Ten.

Of course, there is nothing wrong with this and seen as normal opperating procedures in College Football! Think there might be a problem with this system?:rolleyes:

And not waiving rights to sue Texas A&M

I don't what the big deal is about this whole not waiving rights to sue aTm thing? Who in their right mind would waive their rights to sue when they are getting nothing in return? It doesn't mean they have any intention of going forward with a lawsuit...they just aren't waiving their right to it. That is just smart business. When would anyone (school, business, individual, etc) ever sign a waiver to their right to sue when you are getting nothing in return?

it wouldn't make sense. just like all the assumptions out there that the BE will let SU/Pitt out of their obligatory 27 month notice. i really don't see why they would.

They do it because at some point you're just harming yourself. You hold yourself up from moving on from that which is inevitable

I wouldn't, I'm just pointing to irony/hypocricy that Mizzou is going the same thing

At some point a settlement will be reached. Probably will invo,lve a combination of cash and games...Syracuse agrees to play at rutgers and at the Rent for no fee, but pays UCONN and rugers for the return game. Pitt does the same for USF and Lousiville...or fi there is no big East, it is just a cash transaction.
