Personally, I think losing the Braggin’ Rights setup would be a TRAGEDY. If Mizzou ever joined the Big Ten, I’d want it in writing that we only play once per year (an anti-protected rivalry?? Lol), and that event is not affected. It’s such a special atmosphere.
Would we ever take Miznoz though?
We already have a bite of the St Louis tv market so I’m guessing the net gain isn’t as strong as in a place with fewer Illini fans.
Plus it’s not like they are on a sinking PAC##/Big12/ACC ship. They’re comfortably on the deck of the speed boat that’s trying to pass us while they butt-chug Budweiser.
My opinion only but I think the BR game is safe.
