Nebraska and Missouri found gold mines on their front porches when they moved to easily the two most lucrative conferences in college football. And remember Missouri twice played in the SEC Championship Game and went to major bowls those seasons, winning the Cotton ('13) and Citrus in ('14). Their problems have been more self-induced since then. Nebraska may never again be the power they were in the 90s, but it’s not as if they became Eastern Michigan after leaving the Big 12. They went to consecutive Capital One bowls (probably the best outside the big four in the BCS era) in '12 and '13 and the Gator and Holiday the following seasons. I can’t even imagine either school wanting to go back to the Big 12, though I wouldn’t be surprised if Mizzou preferred the Big 10 because of the academic patina.
