Missouri's departure from the Big 12 to the SEC could be announced some time this week, according to numerous sources. As long as there are no unforeseen hurdles, Mizzou has the nine presidential votes required for admission to the SEC. On Friday, the Missouri Board of Curators authorized Chancellor Brady Deaton to move forward with the realignment. The Big 12 Board of Directors is meeting in Dallas today, where Mizzou is expected to withdraw from the conference. Deaton is personally attending the meeting, adding fuel to the rumor that the Big 12 breakup is happening today.

How will Mizzou fans feel about their not-so-Southern-or-Eastern school moving to the Southeastern Conference? Will the Tigers leave immediately or wait a  year? Who will the Big 12 consider to replace MU? Will this kick off a new round of musical chairs? There's a lot to discuss. Leave your thoughts in the comments and check back here for updates.
