    Re: Mizzou to SEC "inevitable and imminent"

    Really wondered after seeing that the Big 12 logos were taken off Faurot Field. Oh well. We'll be better off if we can replace them with BYU or Louisville. Get a team that we can beat. If MU leaves I bet we move to 12 to make this conference look solidified.

    I'd read more into that than I should if Iowa State had the Big 12 logo on it's football field the last decade or so...

    Good Bye . . good riddance.

    I have never held Missouri to be an elite program . . . hope they enjoy being the SEC's new favorite chew toy.

    I don't understand how you don't get this. When you discuss conference realignment, evidence and information don't matter. Random twitter posts from guys that throw garbage against the wall are what matters.

    I thought the megathread meant something. You're really ruining the hard work of a billion posters.

    I'm not saying Mizzou isn't gone by the end of the week - they may very well be. But it has nothing to do with the fact that Mizzou no longer has the Big 12 logo on their field.

    Again, don't challenge tweets with actual evidence. That's not the point of conference realignment twittermania.

    I don't get all this railing against twitter. Again, consider the source, not the medium.

    That's been the problem. People don't consider the source, and continually post the latest tweet as though these idiots are authoritative.

    As we've seen with recruiting, the right sources on twitter are very informative. On conference realignment, twitter is just a constant and annoying source of misinformation.

    Agreed. Two things ive tended to look at- a twitter poster's overall reliability, and where their sources come from. For instance, when it comes to Texas stuff, texas-affiliated sources are usually your best bet, but they may not be your best bet when it comes to Missouri related stuff, and vice versa.

    There are some posters that have been very reliable in their 'home' areas, but not so reliable when they stretch beyond those.

    What the hell does a guy in New York know about the goings on in the midwest?

    Re: Mizzou to SEC "inevitable and imminent"

    I love how all these teams brag about all this history blah blah blah and then turn their backs on true history and one of the best football conferences out there! Wow Bye don't let the door hit ya on way out .... I think you may regret your choice.Truly Money that rules all of the values too...Wish we would add couple other teams and be done with it!

    Agreed. Pete Thamel is one of the best college sports writers in the country, so I do pay attention to what he writes. At the same time, this thing so fluid that it may be true when they tweet it, but it changes hours later.
