The University of Missouri has declined to commit to the Big12 on a long term basis in the same way the remaining members did on Sunday. They also announced that they have given Chancellor Brady Deaton authority to "explore other conference options." Shortly after this announcement Deaton resigned his position as the Chairman of the Big12 Conference Board of Directors. Basically, they're out and now the search will begin for at least two teams to fill the void left by Missouri and Texas A&M. Yipee-Ki-Yay Mother F&%#ers.
