Mizzou is an enigma.  The state of Missouri produces athletes, has two major cities, and is geographically situated to have access to other fertile recruiting areas.  Mizzou is the only FBS school in the state.  They have a national championship in baseball(1954) and one in indoor track & field(1965).  Their last football conference championship was in 1969, basketball for the regular season was 1994, baseball for the regular season was in 1996.

They really should be a lot more competitive.

Absolutely - it's hard to figure out why they can't win more.

I say the the same thing about Texas.

Texas will bounce back. It's just a matter of time. They have the resources.

Mizzou hasn't really been a good fit for the SEC. They are also-rans and will never bea at the pinacle of winning championships. At least in the Big 12 they could rule the North.

I'm actually talking about Texas' entire history, not just at current. ;) Over their life-time, given their resources and in-state population, they are massive under-achievers.

The people at Missouri always felt they were a good fit, geographically and culturally, in the Big Ten. This was the case long before they left our conference. They weren't in a huge hurry to leave the B12. They only left the B12 because they feared OU and Texas (and perhaps a few others) would leave the B12 for either the SEC or PAC 12. Missouri felt they would be left in the cold without a major conference. When an offer to join the SEC came up suddenly, the jumped on it. It was the right move at that moment since the B12 would never make it without OU or Texas. I'm a little surprised the SEC wanted Missouri.

Missouri isn't dreaming about the good old days in the B12. If they leave the SEC they will wind up in the Big 10.
