No, really. That’s what happened. It wasn’t a metaphor.
Not that we were going to find out any details from Missouri’s Board of Curators about the school’s conference intentions today, but local media had to at least ask, right? Well, they didn’t even get that chance, as the school’s BoC and athletic director Mike Alden, who attended today’s session closed-door executive session, exited the UMKC Student Union through the back door after the meeting adjourned.
A spokesperson then came through the front where board should have exited and said no action had been taken and there was no comment to be made. The board is also set to meet tomorrow in the second day of meetings that many believe will result in the school announcing its departure from the Big 12.
Even tomorrow, there may not be anything to report.
“I will probably have nothing to say on that until Friday,” board chairman Warren Erdman told the Kansas City Star. “If there is anything to say then.”
Hopefully, though, they’ll exit through the front to say something.
