Beebe: BT not pursuing other Big 12 schools
By Adam Rittenberg
It's a big day for Nebraska and a different kind of day for Missouri.
Big 12 commissioner Dan Beebe said on a conference call that the Big Ten isn't pursuing any other Big 12 teams but Nebraska. At least for right now.
"My understanding is there aren't any other conference members being considered by the Big Ten," Beebe said.
Things could always change, and Missouri would be on the Big Ten's radar if it has a Phase 2 to expansion. But the folks in the Show-Me State can't be feeling too comfortable right now, especially after all of Missouri's public talk about wanting to be in the Big Ten. Keep being that proud member of the Big 12, and, as always, stay classy.
