Neinas ‘confident’ Missouri will stay in Big 12
Regarding possible expansion of the Big 12 _ with or without Missouri _ Neinas said there was still no telling how many schools might be added. The presidents of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State have said they are most comfortable if the league gets back to 12 members, while Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds advocated 10. Neinas said there was even some sentiment for staying at nine.
“There is no unanimity at all. There isn’t even a plurality among the athletic directors as to what they would like to do,” Neinas said.
He added, “There has been no shortage of interest” from teams wanting to join the conference.
“We would hope we would not be at eight,” Neinas said.
Neinas had said last week that there was “resistance” from some existing members to adding teams from Texas.
“I’d say that’s changed,” he said.
