Once the mishna mentioned the blessings and curses that were to be recited when getting into the land of Israel, the gemara sidetracks to the splitting of the Jordan upon entering the land, the spies that Moshe sent to check out the land, etc.  Underlying these statements seems to be the idea of miracles (splitting of the sea, giant people and fruits that the spies saw in Israel), presumably linking them to the miracle of the Sotah waters.
