This is what Mizzou and the Aggies had to cough up on their way out the door.
Missouri and Texas A&M announced on their respective athletic websites that the total cost of leaving the Big 12 will be just under $25 million — or, $12.41 million each. But because of items such as direct payments from the NCAA, bowl payouts, etc., A&M will only end up paying the Big 12 $9.31 million out-of-pocket, according to reports by the San Antonio Express News and Dallas Morning News.
Parting is such sweet sorrow for Aggies all across the galaxy.
"On behalf of Texas A&M University and Aggies worldwide, I would like to thank the Big 12 and its member institutions for the many memories over the past 16 years. We value our ongoing academic and athletic relationships with Big 12 members, and it is our hope to continue many of our longstanding athletic rivalries in the future. We appreciate the Big 12 working with us on a quick and amicable settlement."
Mizzou went more Hemmingway.
“We are pleased to have these issues resolved and we wish the Big 12 and its continuing member institutions the best in the future.”
