Eh, I didn't see the Nebraska game obviously, but I don't think we will ranked ahead of them. In the AP we were already 22/23.

Definitely two teams on a collision course.

We beat a much better team by a bigger margin, and are still undefeated.

Is that your homerism talking or fear?

While I am proud of the way the Tigers have played...I'll take it one game at a time. But don't kid yourself either, the Husker's haven't exactly looked all that good this year. That game at home against KU last week showed a few of their weaknesses.

I'll admit to a bit of trepidation should the Tigers go into Nebraska undefeated, because that would give the Husker's a reason to be at the very top of their game. But the Husler faithful should be a bit concerned that this isn't the normal Mizzou Tiger team

You're playing history like it's a foregone conclusion...

So you say your offense is better than prior years....well, our Defense is light years better than previous years.

I keep hearing about this Blackshirt defense...what is it's significance? Does that mean they play in the dark? Or that they are all color-blind so they have to pick a specific color so that they can match on game day?

I'll go on record saying right now that should Nebraska get overconfident, the same thing will happen to them that happened to an overconfident Texas Tech in the 2nd Half after their purported boasting in the Halftime Locker Room.

I never said Missouri was going to win. I never guarantee wins. And I'm not overconfident; just confident. This is a better team than the one that beat you last year, regardless of where the game was played. Nebraska has some issues this year, especially on defense. Your vaunted blackshirts haven't done jackshit to impress me (or pretty much anyone else outside of Lincoln) so far.

However, I'm certainly not looking past a game we don't play for a month. Right now, I just hope we beat A&M and go to 7-0. I like our chances. Does that make me overconfident?

Texas Tech is the definition of average. They are a mid level Big 12 South team. Whoever said they are ranked, they're not.

I bet most teams in the NCAA wish they were "as bad" as USC is. USC has about 3 senior starters. Almost everyone playing any kind of major role is an underclassman.

They probably have more talent than any other team does but you'll have your moments when you have a new QB and lose all world players. USC had games like this in the year they won the national title, expecting them to just dominate everyone and when they don't calling them bad is a bit much.

We all need to excuse Sam for his ridiculous views regarding the Cornholers. We were all starry eyed youngsters once. Before the KU game he came on here telling us what all the 'holers were going to do to us. Retribution was a word he used several times referring to the ass whoopin we put on them last year. Then, after digging themselve a huge hole in the first half, KU roared back with more than 500 yards of offense and a 10+ minute edge in TOP. He dismissed that as an "off day". Sorry, Sam, This wasn't a fluke or a case of lucky breaks but rather a sustained, continual ass kicking of the vaunted Blackshirt defense. And if KU can do it so can 50 other teams out there.

I'm trying to figure out if hanging with USC for 3 quarters means only trailing by 3 TD's. USC scored early in the 3rd quarter to make the game 21-3 and that was also the score at the end of the 3rd quarter.

Not a lot of team above us lost, so I would guess that we would be somewhere between 18-20. We will likely jump #17 FSU who lost, #21 Virginia Tech who was idle, #14 OU which lost to UT and possibly Nebraska. But previously unranked Arkansas will probably jump into the rankings with their win at Auburn.

My point about the USC game was I don't think any other North team could play them as close as NU did.

All I know is the winner of NU/KSU will have the ultimate smack: scoreboard. Should be a good game. I think KSU will try to come out early and run NU out of the building. I don't think it will happen.

Well, Mizzou IS that good. They're alot better than KU and KSU, at least this year. They'll likely win out at home. And the win over TTech was a good one.

But their toughest test will be Oklahoma and I think they can win that game.

The good start should really help recruiting, though. There have been several articles about MU and Daniel in major Texas newspapers. You can't beat that kind of pub.

Dallas Morning News: http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcontent/dws/spt/colleges/topstories/stories/101106dnspodaniel.321b7d4.html

Chase was chatting on the ESPN insider section. Here's the lead-in:

Missouri is 6-0 for the first time since 1973, and a huge reason is the play of sophomore quarterback Chase Daniel, who turned 20 last Saturday. The Tigers knocked off Texas Tech that day and can improve to 7-0 for the first time since 1960 with a win at Texas A&M on Saturday.

Daniel is said to have the moxie, confidence and talent to lead the Tigers to a Big 12 North title. And he lived up to his reputation in our conversation, explaining why he's better off at Missouri than Texas or Texas A&M, neither of whom offered scholarships.

Daniel is one of the greatest players in Texas schoolboy history. And he is quickly becoming one of the most exciting quarterbacks in college football.

Sorry Tim but the only thing more unlikely than the Chiefs winning the Super Bowl while Carl Peterson is GM is Mizzou making the Bowls undefeated. Nice dream I suppose.

I won't argue with that. Just dreamin' outloud.

I just analyzed the Mizzou schedule & basically after this week's game AT TAMU...the Tigers have few tests left:

OU at Faurot Field
AT NU
AT ISU

Eventhough KU & KSU have owned MU recently both games are at Faurot Field & eventhough Mizzou has had the superior team the last few years & come up short...I don't see it this year.

I can see Mizzou being 12-0 playing at Arrowhead vs Texas for the right to a BCS Bowl game...possibly for the National Championship game in Arizona.

It's a crazy scenario but every game is definitely winnable for the Tigers.

You know it hurts to lose a talented in-state player, especially to Nebraska. That's a BS response. Kansas State was never in the race. The top three players in Kansas this year won't be playing college football close to home.

He would be great if he committed to Kansas State, right?

Actually, Saul is correct. His two choices were Nebraska and Nebraska. It was never going to be anything else. He may have swayed toward KU a touch, with his brother being offered. But that's it.

Mizzou WILL win the north.

Can they run the table? Absolutely.
Will they beat Texas? No ****ing way.

If you finished 12-1 with a loss to Texas, it's quite likely you'll play in a BCS bowl.

Pffft. I heard that for a month in 2003. Then "The Greatest College Football Team Of All Time" got beat like rag dolls. By a 20 point dog. Conference Championship games are made for the upset. Especially with a Frosh QB.

The only difference is that Mizzou doesn't have a Sproles type to run 30+ times.

Probably better if we don't get a BCS Bowl. Realistically, I'd rather win a lesser bowl than get humiliated on national television by another Texas-caliber super school.

I'm not sure their SoS would be good enough to get them in the top of the BCS standings. Their OOC was just way too weak.

OOC's? Right now the Big 12 North isn't helping the stregnth of schedule either.

2 games that will tell what Missouri really is in my book. Nebraska and Oklahoma. Both are winnable, but both schools not only will be tough, but the mental aspect of "We almost never beat them" seems to always play into it as well.

If MU beats both of those schools, as well as winning the rest of the games, going into the Big 12 championship, I think there could be an outside chance (small but a chance just the same) that they can actually beat Texas.

I don't think so. Even if we were the only undefeated team and every other school had 3 losses we wouldn't get the big game. Most of that comes from watching KSU under Snyder get dumped on and having to settle for bowls no one has heard of instead of the major bowls even though they did earn the right to be there.

The rest comes from the fact that there are 6-7 undefeated teams right now and we are still at 19 in the coaches poll and 21 in the USA poll. Shoot, there are 3 teams ahead of us with only 4 wins - LSU has 2 losses and is ahead of us.

If MU were to go undefeated, they still don't have the respect to play in one of the BCS games. They MIGHT, I say MIGHT end the year in the top 10 if they win out.

Wrong.

If they go undefeated, I guarantee you they get a BCS bowl. Besides the fact that their BCS standing will be high enough to get an at-large bowl, a win in the Big XII Conference championship game is an AUTOMATIC berth in a BCS game.

If they went undefeated, the only way they wouldn't play for the NC is that 2 other UNDEFEATED teams have a higher BCS standing than them. (See Oklahoma and USC leaving Auburn out in 04).

Yes, SoS for Mizzou ain't good, but...

The ACC is down this year, and if the SEC continues to beat up on each other, a 1-loss B12 team has an excellent shot at a BCS bowl.

I think O$U is a lock for the title game.

Florida has a shot. If UF and O$U run the table, I doubt MU has a chance.

However, I doubt MU has a chance to run the table anyways..

[Chuckle] It's not the Big 12 North SoS that's hurting Mizzou. It's Mizzou's Sos that is hurting Mizzou. But as Saully pointed out, if you win out, (or win the CCG) you're in the BCS.

I'm trying to remember all the times this happened. Let's see... there was 1998 and then there was .... uh... 1998. And then there was 1998. And that was the fault of the Big 12 for not moving quick enough lock themselves into contracts with the middle rung of Bowl games. KSU, a 1 loss team and still ranked in the top 5 by both major polls, fell to the Alamo Bowl.

Funny story though Pastor.

Cool!


I'm soooo glad I was mistaken. Do you have ANY IDEA how hard it was for me to give props to KSU for deserving more than they actually got?

I basically arrived at that conclusion though because of all the KSU fans I lived around at the time kept whining about the lack of respect they were getting year in and year out. Seriously, I heard a lot of it over numerous years when I lived up there.

KSU got royally screwed back in 98. IIRC, their only loss was in OT in the Big 12 title game. The BCS is nothing more that BS. One of the main reasons that NFL will always be better that college is that they actually have a playoff system. Not to mention that the NCAA is more worried about how well a teams fan's travel instead of how worthy the team is when they are considering bowl game invitations. I can only imagine if the NFL skipped the playoffs and just had a poll at the end of the regular season to decide who was the Super Bowl Champs like the NCAA does.

Pretty close Spott. But actually, the NCAA cares little about fan travel. They do care about TV's. While KSU fans travel in droves for bowl games, they have little national appeal. Couple that with the small number of TV sets in the state of Kansas (TV rating's wise), and you get what you get.

But the real problem in 98 was the BIg 12 office. They sat on their hands as the BCS bids were being procured and did lees than nothing.

But, if KSU had just taken care of business....

Actually in Missouri, when it came to football, there wasn't much complaining about getting shafted by the NCAA, the complaining had more to do with the coach, players, athletic director and so on.
