COLUMBIA, MO. • During its tenure as a member of the Big 12's North Division, Missouri was conveniently situated near most of its competition and buses were a common mode of transportation for its teams. The athletic department's rule of thumb was that if an Olympic sport team could make a trip in seven hours by driving, it did so. Moving to the Southeastern Conference and being placed in the East Division will alter the plan and the travel budget considerably.
