Chase Daniel & Co. brought Missouri to relevancy from 2007-2008. Gary Pinkel has kept them there since. Now, with Nebraska out of the Big 12(ish) picture, many seem ready to anoint Missouri as the next big thing.

But, to borrow a phrase from Lee Corso, "not so fast my friend."

Removing Nebraska—and Colorado to a lesser degree—relieves Missouri of an annual road block. But, it also renders the Big 12 division-less, leaving the Tigers exposed to a full slate of former South division foes. In other words: If you're Gary Pinkel, would you rather play Nebraska and Colorado every year? Or Oklahoma and Texas every year?
