    [​IMG]Missouri chancellor Brady Deaton didn't learn of Colorado's move to the Pac-10 until just before meeting with the board of curators for lunch, but the first thing he did was call Texas president Bill Powers, according to his comments to reporters earlier this morning.

    From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
    They’re a member of the Big 12, so the first thing I did was [pick] up the phone and call [Texas president] Bill Powers because right now he’s in the chair role of the Big 12,” Deaton said before being whisked away by handlers. “I wanted to chat with him about the implications of that.”​
    Deaton later told reporters "anything could happen" and that "we're working hard to hang together and move forward."

    Missouri has yet to receive an official invitation from the Big Ten to apply, and if the Big 12 South -- minus Baylor -- makes a move to the Pac-10, the Tigers being left outside a conference with an automatic BCS bid is looking like a real possibility.

    Apparently, Deaton may have exhausted his reservoir of reminders that Missouri was a proud member of the Big 12 during last week's meetings.
