(Columbia, MO) -- The chancellor of Missouri University says anything can happen now that Colorado has left the Big 12 for the Pac-10.
According to the "St. Louis Post-Dispatch," chancellor Brady Deaton said the Big 12 was still working on hanging together and moving forward.
Earlier Thursday, it was announced Colorado was leaving the conference for the Pac-10.
Deaton said when he heard about the move, he called Texas president Bill Powers to discuss the implications.
Powers is currently also serving as the Big 12 chairman.
The future of the conference could be bleak.
Reports say five other Big 12 schools are also being invited to join the Pac-10, while Nebraska is apparently set to join the Big Ten.
Colorado will play in the Big 12 for the next two seasons.
It will join its new conference in 2012.
