Stoops playing dumb?  It is not an act.  When him, his brother, and Magino left K-State for OU, it explained as "fat, drunk, and stupid" left.

Curious what these statistics look like by quarter.  Mizzou got the ball back with 8:08 left on the clock against Ole Miss and ran 15 plays.  Would guys be able to show that?  One of the problems with the up tempo is the clock killing-which I think we have improved on quite a bit.

Coach Pinkel needs to focus on Saturday-simple fact of the matter is we, Mizzou, have not won a conference championship in football since 1969.  Winning the SEC Championship is what we can control and still go to the Sugar Bowl.

@WryObserver @XEN610 I was being snide towards the big xii.  I get all of the above.  Baylor lost to a Top 10ish team, but no one is talking about them in a BCSCG because they are in the big xii.  Same with Ok State.  If Mizzou (we) win the game and OSU loses, the reason we will (and should) is because we made the move to the SEC.  If we a 1L team in our former conference, we not be in any discussion.


FYI-Yes, I was at the SC game.  I am an alum, too, and have season tickets.

If my Tigers, the one from the Zou, win this weekend, and Michigan State were to beat Ohio State-Alabama could still wind up in the game.  And if that were to happen, I would not be a happy camper. 


And I do come to this website, because there is more love given to Mizzou than anywhere else.

Based on most published items-the B10 was looking east and south.  We never fit that profile.  One bad year in football does not make this a C-the additional funds we will be getting from the move will help with facility upgrades.

In the long run, this will be a great move for both parties.  Mizzou will improve in athletics and we help improve the SEC's academic reputation.

Wait me-the arrests while we (Mizzou) were in the Big XII should not count in this analysis.  Come on-different standards on the issue.


That is meant as a joke.  The list has several repeat offenders & I know of some names that are not on the list because it was prior to 2010 (Blaine Dalton).  Really this concerns me more than a W-L.  Why?  Because this embarrasses your school & state.  Plus, it translates into the W-L from the character of the kids.

Once again proving the point-the big xii messed up.  The could have grabbed Cincinnati & Louisville at the same time to at least ease the burden.  If WVU has stayed put, they might have gotten the nod over Lville for the ACC bid.  Makes you wonder.

Lower case intentional.

When all of this went down last year-I stated that the Big xii should have added Cincy & Lville with West Virginia.  But that did not happen and now WVU will start wondering about the benefit of their decision.  Wonder when the conference realignment goes the other way to schools jumping to old or brand new for the football money.  Currently seeing it with basketball.

The 'fan' is a joke in the tweets.  Franklin has played hurt the last two seasons.  He did not take a cortisone shot-I get it.  I do not doubt his toughness.  He has represented my university by being a class act in all ways.  Did he play well last year-not really.  Maybe a year of getting back in shape.  B Smitth regressed a bit his junior.  Agree with bpa_kc, if you do not have the guts to say something negative to his face-say nothing.

I watched the MU-Arkansas game from home last night and do not sit down for the first half.  We are not upset that Coach A left-it how it was done.  The kids that played for him, especially Bowers & Pressey, deserved to have been told in a locker room meeting.  Coach A did a lot for the program and nobody is faulting him for going back to Arkansas.

The problem is going to be the rivals that get played already that weekend.  Alabama plays Auburn & LSU-Arkansas.  A&M-South Carolina would be a possibility, but it would be a better watch than Texas-TCU.  Or whoever they played this year.

And people wonder why we left?  Thanks to the SEC once again for making us feel welcome and part of the family.  I remember the Georgia fans at our first SEC football telling how we helped with the academic profile and were impressed with campus.  The only school that wanted to be back in a conference with Texas was TCU-at least four schools have bolted from Texas and never looked back.

Interesting last night watching my Missouri Tigers play a Releford not at kansas.  Wished we had Kentucky twice (yes, you read that correctly).  The team is starting to gel a bit. Problem is Pressey did not play with any of these guys last year.  Ross, who played at Auburn, was be good addition.  He had 10 points, I believe.  We will get double with Florida.  22 January will interesting with Frank Madman Martin coming to Columbia.  Wonder if he can get his team up for it like he did at K-State.

So Louisville would go the Big xii before it even had set foot in the ACC?  Crazy talk.  Glad Mizzou is out of this mess-big xii should have grabbed Cinci & Lville last year to get back to 12.  The geography is starting just make no sense in the configurations.  At least Missouri bordered three states in the SEC.

Living in KC, this has not even been discussed on any of the talk radio stations.  One thing about being in the SEC now is that the position is more attractive.  We will be able to attract better coordinators.  I am happy with Steckel-other than two games the defense was pretty reasonable.

I remember in 2007, Mizzou lost to OU in the Championship game and got a trip to the Cotton Bowl.  Kansas went to the Orange Bowl-why supposedly because MU had two losses and KU one.  Problem-MU's were to OU and KU did not win division because it had lost to MU.  Personally, I agree that Georgia should get the trip to the Sugar Bowl over Florida.  Programs should not be penalized for losing in conference championship game.  Look at last year, if Georgian had won, the SEC could have had three teams in the BCS bowls.
