    Do you think Big 12 would let Mizzou back for wrestling?

    http://www.desmoinesregister.com/art...stling-changes

    Mizzou still needs home: Missouri’s decision to leave the Big 12 for the SEC left the Tigers without a conference wrestling affiliation. The Tigers are still trying to determine where they’ll land for the coming season, and Jarneecke said the NCAA has asked for a response in September.
    “We haven’t had these specific conversations, but if they were able to get back with the Big 12, that’s a reasonable solution for us,” Jarnecke said. “If they had an affiliate membership with another conference, that’s a reasonable solution for us. And I suppose at day’s end, if those two options or any other options didn’t come to fruition, they would wrestle through the West Regional next year.”
    Also talks about National Duals becoming NCAA dual championships.


    May my posts be polite and not misunderstood. (And hopefully funny on occasion.)

    Haha, do they think that's a realistic option?

    The B12's overall reputation will supersede bringing Mizzou back for wrestling even if it would be a good fit for B12 wrestling in general.

    They will quietly drop the sport in 3-4 years is my guess. Once they are fully indoctrinated by the "SEC!" they won't see a need to keep it.

    I figured they'd just take WV's place in the EWL and be a bit of a geographic outlier, maybe they're not interested.

    What other options are there for them? I'm not as up on things as I used to be but would the MAC be the best fit outside the Big 12 and Big Ten? Isn't there a D1 southern conference but it's not on the same level of competition as the EWL and MAC?

    If the Big 12 has 4 happy quality programs like we do, I say FU to Mizzou. Worked out that WVU is a wrestling school.

    Riiight. If they don't have a conference I can't imagine them having much of a schedule either then.

    I sure hope not, why should they expect to leave and come crawling back expecting the Big 12 to let them keep their wrestling team in the conference...Mizzou is so ridiculous

    Re: Do you think Big 12 would let Mizzou back for wrestling?

    To whom can we write a letter to make sure this doesn't ever happen?


    I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
    “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. During the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
    “Because,” says the Lord, “Sandpeople always ride single-file, to hide their numbers.”

    If we're not happy with 4 teams for some reason lets add NIU and Wyoming for wrestling only before letting Missouri back in. Otherwise, stick with the 4 we have unless a Kansas or Texas school adds a program.

    The Big 12 should (and probably will) tell Missouri to go pound sand.

    Missouri's best option for competition level is in the WWC with UNI, NDSU, SDSU, Wyoming, Air Force, Northern Colorado and Utah Valley.

    The SoCon has wrestling, with App State, Campbell, Citadel, Chattanooga, Davidson, Gardner-Webb, SIU-Edwardsville and VMI.

    They should have thought out this problem before racing off for greener pastures. They've **** in their wrestling bed, now they can sleep in it.
