Senator McCaskill: Mixed Emotions About MU Move to SEC
WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. Claire McCaskill says she has mixed emotions about the University of Missouri's possible move from the Big 12 to the Southeastern Conference.
The Democratic senator, who graduated from Missouri, says she understands administrators' desire to keep the school relevant. But she says it would be odd for Missouri to play schools with which it doesn't have long-standing rivalries.
Even if they do make the switch, McCaskill says the Tigers need to make sure they schedule games against at least one traditional rival -- Kansas. She says she's not sure "how the world could go on without the MU-KU fight."
