The University of Central Florida is stepping out of conference Saturday to welcome in the newest member of the Southeastern Conference to Orlando. But the University of Missouri team that UCF faces is in deep trouble of seeing its season spin out of control.
It’s been quite a year for former University of Miami head basketball coach Frank Haith. He’s gone from persona non grata as a Hurricane to the AP Big 12 Coach of the Year as the leader of the Missouri Tigers basketball team.
Former University of Miami head basketball coach Frank Haith has gone from being loathed by the Hurricanes fan base to being revered by the fans at the University of Missouri; and he might soon have a national honor to go along with his stellar season.
Guh. That’s the best way to describe the Panthers’ defense and goaltending last night; the Heat are still the best team in the NBA, Linsanity…please; and UM’s bubble is about to burst.
When Frank Haith left the University of Miami for the University of Missouri, many Hurricanes fans said good riddance. But, based on Haith’s start at Mizzou, they might be regretting that feeling.
While it’s still a year away, starting next season the Missouri Tigers will begin playing in the Southeastern Conference’s eastern division. That means the Tigers could be making a trip to the Swamp to take on the Gators as early as next year.
While the Southeastern Conference was accidentally welcoming the Missouri Tigers to the conference; the Big XII Conference plucked another football power from the rapidly collapsing Big East Conference.
For weeks, the University of Missouri has been rumored to become the newest member of the Southeastern Conference. Those rumors were accidentally confirmed by the SEC’s website.
The Big East Conference has played host to the University of Miami among others and has a legendary basketball presence. But that may be about to change as the conference re-alignment jumble could put a death nail into the once flourishing conference.
The seemingly never-ending conference realignment dance has come to a screeching halt as the University of Missouri decides its future.
