Missouri made major news waves on Tuesday night when the school's Board of Curators authorized Chancellor Deaton to review the school's conference affiliation and other options that might be out there.
The announcement caused immediate speculation that Missouri could be gearing up to move to the SEC or the Big East, which didn't exactly sit well with one rival coach.
Kansas basketball coach Bill Self told reporters today that if Missouri decides to move on to another conference -- leaving its border and chief rival Kansas behind -- that Kansas might not continue its annual games with the school.
If they choose to be somewhere other than with us and with the other schools that they've been a part of and could jeopardize the future of the other schools ... I'm not going to make a commitment now that we'd ever play again, Self told reporters. I'm not saying we won't. I'm certainly not going to pretend that we would.
Missouri's potential departure from the Big 12 and the potential fallout with Kansas showcase the ramifications of schools moving from conference to conference.
The long-standing rivalry between Texas and Texas A&M looks to be finished after A&M's move to the SEC. The Red River Rivalry between Oklahoma and Texas even looked to be in doubt before Oklahoma decided to recommit to the Big 12 instead of leaving for the Pac-12.
The loss of the Border War between Missouri and Kansas, should Missouri leave the conference, would be yet another sad repercussion of schools looking for more money and stability from their conference affiliations.
