    SEC BB tourney to Kansas City?

    I almost busted a gut laughing when I saw this article that the SEC is thinking about hosting their men's BB tourney in KC every few years.

    Nobody outside of Kentucky and Missouri would care to attend a tournament in KC because all they care about is football. An SEC tourney in St. Louis I could possibly see, but Kansas City makes absolutely no sense. Can you imagine if the Big 12 tourney was held in Washington DC once every four year to appease West Virginia? Missouri is going to regret this move far more than any of the the other Big 12 defections. I can understand the thinking of Nebraska, A&M, and Colorado, but Missouri is going to run their athletic dept into the ground in the long run with their decision.

    Somewhere out there Mizzoulander is figuring this is a done deal and is using this as more evidence that the SEC move makes sense.

    this is just politics. the SEC is trying to make nice with Kansas City as a favor to Missouri.

    The SEC will put Mizzourah in their place eventually. After realizing how far away KC is from 13/14 of their schools, they'll probably just put the SEC wrestling tournament in Columbus instead.

    Even the delusional Missouri fans that I know don't believe this can happen. This article is hilarious!

    The wrestling tourney is already in Columbia next year, since they are the only school with it in the sec. Mizz basically killed their wrestling program. Cripes, my auto spellcheck just changed Mizz to mizzoulander. My own computer is getting nasty.

    Where do they plan on having this tourney? Isn't the Big 12 pretty much locked up in KC for awhile?

    Probably at Municipal Auditorium in KC where the women's tourney has been held. A few thousands seats is all they'll need anyways.

    I'm sure there is a high school with a big enough gymnasium.

    Through 2014. I wonder if KC will get less consideration for the B12 tournament going forward. Not that I think the SEC will come to KC, but the areana will probably be available some years.

    I heard ALOT of people talk about how much OKC sucked. The Big 12 would be very smart to stay in KC, IMO.
