COLUMBIA — Questions of conference realignment and the future of what conference MU will belong to remain unanswered after Friday morning's press conference with the University of Missouri System Board of Curators.
UM System President Gary Forsee said he guessed that discussion of Colorado's decision to move to the Pac-10 would have to take place within the next few days, though he said no formal meeting has been scheduled.
As for rumors about Nebraska leaving the conference and how Missouri might react to this, he said he would not respond to speculation of any kind.
Forsee said he maintains his previous stance: Missouri is a proud member of the Big 12.
Forsee halted discussion about the conference reshuffling to address the other UM Board of Curators agenda items such as raising tuition, the budget and teacher salaries.
