    Re: Wow, the Big XII/Mizzou Divorce...

    Good article, worth a read. Favorite part:

    On Oct. 24, an anonymous Big 12 administrator told the Austin American-Statesman the conference would be better off with West Virginia than Missouri. The official said, "West Virginia has better football than Missouri, better basketball than Missouri, a better budget than Missouri and more passion among its fans than Missouri. They're better, anyway you turn 'em."

    "Wow," [MU AD Mike] Alden wrote to [OSU AD Mike] Holder. "I didn't know folks harbored that kind of sentiment about us."
    Yeah, we all think that.

    Mizzou = delusional. They play the victim well, but most of us are too smart to buy it.

    Sucks to suck Missouri! I knew this day would come that they start to think twice about their decision but I never would have thought it would come this early. Best part of all is they haven't even left yet! Edit: after getting more in depth in the article it says ,it talks about KC businesses trying to get MU to stay. Either way, Missouri WILL regret its decision. They are the northern outlier in a southern conference.

    Even an article in the Columbia newspaper can't make MU look good in this.

    And on top of that, the administration is doing what it can to undermine and dismantle my graduate department there. To hell with them.

    On related note I liked how the Baylor fans were chanting big 12 rejects last night at the end of the Colorado game

    No, they are just removing the identity of the nuclear engineering program. You'll still be able to get graduate degrees in nuclear engineering (well, for now at least) but it will be apart of other departments not its own. Basically, they are neutering it, which is disappointing, since that graduate program brings in a lot of research money. Nuclear engineering is the only bright spot in engineering at Mizzou.

    Looks like Brady Denton has sank their ship for the future. He was head honcho in B12 and his dreams of grandeur exceeded his smarts.

    It was funny, but I just don't have the same animosity towards Colorado as others. Would have been funnier against Nebraska, A$M, or Mizzwho.

    Deaton is the driving force behind the effort to diminish and eliminate my graduate program. This is his third attempt at doing so. Previous attempts were stopped by the UM system president. Speculation is that this latest attempt is in retaliation for the mini "revolt" spearheaded by a well respected member of the nuclear science and engineering research community where by his faculty committee sent a letter to Deaton recommending the reversal of his decision to fire another faculty member in 2010.

    Clearly, Deaton is a butt hole and needs to be fired. Probably will in the near future.
