Missouri Officials Say No Offers From Big Ten Yet

The Tribune is reporting at Chicago Breaking Sports that officials at the University of Missouri have not received any offers to join the Big Ten as of yet.

Despite seeming to be the favorite in conference expansion, Mizzou has been usurped by Nebraska in recent days. It now looks almost certain that Nebraska will join the conference, with further expansion plans from there, and Missouri’s future, uncertain.

The Tribune writes,

After a closed-door meeting of university curators Thursday, curator Warren Erdman told the AP that Missouri had not been asked to join the Big Ten. Erdman noted that he had been out of state the past week but wasn’t aware of any change in the situation. He said the curators did not discuss conference affiliation during the morning session.
