I wouldn't be shocked if MU loses. KU is a good team and MU is going to have to play some of their best ball of the year. That being said I can live with a competitive loss.

It should be a good game. What worries me is MU has not played particularly great since Baylor. I was worried about how KU murdered OU but then I rememered MU murdered them even worse and I knew KU at home after a loss would be nails anyway.

We can't shut down KU across the board, there is just no way. I think Robinson is the one you take your chances with since he seems to be either hot or cold. I'd go for shutting down Taylor and getting Withey into foul trouble even if it means Withey gets 10 blocks in the process.

No one knows about playing hot and cold better than KU so it all depends on what team shows up for each side. We can look like uninspired ass (Iowa State) or we can dominate. Home crowd for MU... really good team that will be really up for the game as always... I'd pretty much settle for keeping in close and having a chance at the end. Hopefully Taylor or Robinson or both will have inspired performances and Withey doesn't shit himself too much.

Something I would really like to do though it would be impossible without losing my mind is to listen to Bob Davis (KU radio announcer) and Mike Kelly (MU radio announcer) during an MU\KU game at the same time.

I have to admit as odd as it sounds that when I first started getting into College BB, I was always an MU fan but never harbored ill-feelings towards KU. Then one night on the radio I listened to Bob Davis calling a KU game and I swear to God the guy ruined me on KU basketball forever. I mean like for a short time I would root for KU as long as they weren't playing MU but after hearing him.....JFC! I swear he makes every KU score sound like it was a half-court 3 at the buzzer and any, I mean any time something doesn't go KU's way you would swear the NCAA was out to get KU on purpose even.

There can be a lot of time to fill in a baseball game... not that I'm saying Bob is great at it. 13 minutes without a score update is a bit much. I always loved listening to Dennys storys though... one of my favorite things about listening to the games.

Did he get that off before the buzzer? I can see why Self is hot, the Refs gotta take a look at that one" Then you see the replay and the guy clearly gets the shot off with a defender in his face from 10 ft behind the 3pt arc with 4 secs left on the shotclock....LMAO

The last time MU beat KU by over 10 points in basketball was over a decade ago (and that was only a 12 PT win). There's little reason to think it will happen on Saturday. KU is far too good this year to allow that to happen.

It should be close...far too close for me to try to predict a winner.

13 minutes! The Wife and I timed him when we were driving home one night and I was getting pissed cause he wouldn't say the damn score. I heard where the opposing pitcher grew up, some quirky shit about his childhood, some non-baseball related crap, something about a game Denny called back when Brett played. We wen through an entire 1/2 inning without getting the score and THEN..THEN all I got as they Royals finished batting was "and we head to the top of the 5th with the Royals still ahead by 1". :banghead:

Well, it matters as much as any regular season college basketball game does (which is to say, not much). It won't have any effect on how well either team does in the March crapshoot tournament. In terms of the conference race, though, it could loom quite large, particularly for MU. A loss really hurts any chance they have in the conference race, but a win puts them in a tie for the lead with KU having the more difficult schedule down the stretch.

KU and MU will play again eventually in the future, so I don't really view these last 2 games as the end of a rivalry or anything like that.

Hoenstly I don't care about the Big 12 title. It's a bragging rights thing, sure. I am more focused on getting a #1 or #2 seed in the Tourney. Even if we lost twice to KU, which is nothing to hang your head about, I think we still can rank high enough for that goal.

Dude, can you imagine, playing 4 times this year? Twice in conference, once in the Big 12 and then the ultimate KU/MU homer dream to have KU and MU faceoff for the NC?

Typically that would be a pipedream but I think both KU and MU can beat Cuse, Kentucky and Ohio State so depending on the bracketing It's just as possible as any other dream matchup.

I think MU has a good shot at a 1 seed... at least a 2.

I also think a conference title is a worthy thing, I don't care what anyone says. KU has won several and they're all special to me. Doesn't matter if we have bigger dreams. It's a nice thing to do and it means a lot imo. Should mean a lot to anyone else.

I care about the conference title. A consistent season of success is more indicative of how good your team is than a few games in March are. And besides, it would be nice to keep the streak going. If Haith's Mizzou team was able to break it, I'd have a lot of respect for them.

Both MU and KU should at least get #2 seeds regardless of the outcome of their games against each other (the Big 12 champion generally gets a #1). High seeds are by no means a guarantee of success, though, as any KU (or Duke, UK, or UNC) fan knows.

They could easily play in the B12 tournament, but there are too many possible pitfalls in the NCAA tournament for me to expect they'll play again there. One of them will no doubt go down earlier than expected, if not both.

But yeah, as far as a homer dream goes, that would be nice.

When I'm on my death bed rolling thru the memories of my life, it sure as **** won't be that Chiefs Raiders game of YOR that im thinking about.

Fans chirping over what could be last KU-Mizzou basketball game in Columbia
By Andy Hyland

As Kansas University and the University of Missouri are ready to meet on the basketball court for what could be one of the last times, the game came with the usual amount of sniping.

The Missouri Alumni Association held a contest where fans could win tickets to Saturday night’s game against “kU,” as they referred to it, by entering and listing “three reasons why I’m not a Jayhawk.”

More than 2,700 people participated in the contest. Jack E. Kinney Jr., a 1969 journalism alumnus of the school, won.

His reasons? His late uncle Bob said the best school for a Missourian is MU, and Tigers are better than “some goofy bird.”

Other submitted reasons will be posted online later.

“(Former Missouri basketball coach) Norm Stewart would not let his teams eat or sleep in Kansas. Whatever Stormin’ Norman says is good enough for me,” Kinney wrote.

Todd McCubbin, executive director of the MU Alumni Association, said the contest could “definitely can slip into some not fun areas if we’re not careful.”

The association is also using the week to boost membership, pointing out that it has the fourth-highest members in the conference, trailing KU.

“I think it’s fair game and we have some fun with it,” McCubbin said of the rivalry. “It has driven some membership, there’s no doubt, this week.”

Kevin Corbett, president of the KU Alumni Association, said this kind of tactic is nothing new.

“It’s at least the third campaign they’ve run to try and recruit more members than the KU Alumni Association,” he said.

It hasn’t worked so far, he pointed out.

But it wasn’t all sniping this week.

Xavier Billingsley, president of the Missouri Students Association, distributed a letter to the university community asking fans to avoid committing “some act of ignorance against our opponents.”

“Keep your eyes and ears open this week,” he wrote. “And if you see an example of insensitive fan behavior or encounter words or actions unbefitting Mizzou, make sure the students behind that ignorance know you don’t appreciate it.”

Obsessed much?

Fans chirping over what could be last KU-Mizzou basketball game in Columbia
By Andy Hyland

As Kansas University and the University of Missouri are ready to meet on the basketball court for what could be one of the last times, the game came with the usual amount of sniping.

The Missouri Alumni Association held a contest where fans could win tickets to Saturday night’s game against “kU,” as they referred to it, by entering and listing “three reasons why I’m not a Jayhawk.”

More than 2,700 people participated in the contest. Jack E. Kinney Jr., a 1969 journalism alumnus of the school, won.

His reasons? His late uncle Bob said the best school for a Missourian is MU, and Tigers are better than “some goofy bird.”

Other submitted reasons will be posted online later.

“(Former Missouri basketball coach) Norm Stewart would not let his teams eat or sleep in Kansas. Whatever Stormin’ Norman says is good enough for me,” Kinney wrote.

Todd McCubbin, executive director of the MU Alumni Association, said the contest could “definitely can slip into some not fun areas if we’re not careful.”

The association is also using the week to boost membership, pointing out that it has the fourth-highest members in the conference, trailing KU.

“I think it’s fair game and we have some fun with it,” McCubbin said of the rivalry. “It has driven some membership, there’s no doubt, this week.”

Kevin Corbett, president of the KU Alumni Association, said this kind of tactic is nothing new.

“It’s at least the third campaign they’ve run to try and recruit more members than the KU Alumni Association,” he said.

Three guys, a Tiger, a Jayhawk, and a Longhorn walking along the beach together one day. They come across a lantern and a Genie pops out of it. "I will give you each one wish, that's three wishes total," says the Genie. The Longhorn says, "I am studying to be a farmer, my dad was a farmer and my son will also farm. I want the land in Texas to forever be fertile. With a blink of the Genie's eye, 'POOF' the land across Texas was made forever fertile. The Jayhawk was amazed, so he said, "I want a wall around Lawrence, so that no one can come into our precious city." Again, with a blink of the Genie's eye, 'POOF' there was a huge wall around Lawrence. The Tigers says, "I'm very courious. Please tell me more about this wall." The Genie explains, "Well, it's about 150 feet high, 50 feet thick and nothing can get in or out." The Tiger says, "Fill it with water."

Yup, not even close.

In college basketball, a single regular season game will never truly be all that critical. I'll be irritated if we lose this game (because we shouldn't), but ultimately we're still going to the tournament and we're still going to have a solid seed, even with a loss.

If this were an Elite 8 game, it'd be more important than DGB. But as a regular season game no, it does not matter nearly as much as landing the #1 college football recruit in the country.

Final Four and it is not even close. As good as DGB is, a final four easily trumps it. DGB wont win us any NCG and we have to wait till next year to see how much of an impact he has on our recruiting. We have 0 zero final four appearances ever.

Don't forget how circular the Rivals ratings are.

When Notre Dame was considered the front-runner for Mauk, it was a given that it was just a matter of time before Mauk ended up a 4-star. He went out there and set the world on fire as a Senior but still didn't get that 4th star after signing with Mizzou. It wasn't because of his performance.

Rivals will concede that they base part of their ratings on what schools are pursuing a player. Every year there are several players that get stars added because they go to Alabama or Oklahoma or whatever. So to a degree, teams like Alabama get 3 or 4 extra 'stars' each year by virtue of the fact that they're chasing the kid.

Ultimately, the difference between the top 1/2 of the 3 stars and the bottom 1/2 of the 4 stars is nominal at best. That's where most classes come from for all but the 'blue-blood' power programs.

Ultimately, I'd rather have 2 5-stars and a ton of 3 high 3-stars, than to have 4 4-stars and a bunch of 3-stars.

Getting that 5-star, a clearly elite talent, is more critical than getting a couple of extra 4-stars (guys who are just a little better than the 3-stars, if better at all).

That's not to say I'm not disappointed with the class, but it has nothing to do with the 'star' ratings. I think we lost on a couple of undervalued DTs and a couple of O-lineman that would've all been very nice players for us. All of them were 3-star kids, but they were kids with projectable frames and nice pedigrees that I expected to outperform those rankings.

Not really. They only move up to 8 in terms of 'quantity'.

If you're looking at Rivals and trying to judge Mizzou's class by that, you're going to be disappointed. There's not a way to spin the scouting service rankings in a way that helps Mizzou out a great deal.

It was DGB, Mauk, Boehm and a bunch of JAGs according to Rivals. That said, I think a lot of those 4-star guys are no more/less JAGS than a bunch of the 3-star guys.

Agreed. I think Pinkel and his staff have shown that they know how to find guys that fit their system and coach them up. This was evident back when we were getting 2 and 3 star guys. Now, we only recruited a single 2 star while getting a 4 star and the best player in the country. That's in a year in which we lost several of our recruits, as we had pitched them on playing in Texas.

Moving up 8 spots in quality is actually pretty significant. It gives us a top 25 recruiting class. I prefer quality over quantity. When I say quality I do not necessarily mean 5 star talent. I am happy with a bunch of solid 3 stars. If you look back on some of our old rankings you might be surprised at how some of our players were ranked. One that sticks out that I remember is Weatherspoon who had zero stars and was rated as a 40 overall. He turned out very good and ended up being a first round pick. HCGP does a good job with under the radar players which is why class rankings don't mean a whole lot to me. He will need to prove it if we are going to achieve sustained success in the SEC. We should compete this year and possibly next, but after that we will see.

You misunderstand me, or perhaps I did a poor job of explaining.

We move from 11 in the conference to 8 based on the average 'strength of stars' ranking. Our average recruit is something like a 3.11 star; only nominally better than Vanderbilt and Kentucky. From a 'stars' standpoint, the quality isn't even really that spectacular.

Don't look at the rankings if you're wanting to defend this class. There are ways to do it, but it ain't with Rivals or Scout.

It's by pointing out that a guy like L'Damian Washington, 2-star recruit, is likely to be better when all is said and done than Bud Sasser or Jimmy Hunt, the 4-star studs we got in 2010. Or even that 4-star recruit we got out of Texas. Or yeah, by pointing out that Spoon was a 1-star 'athlete' that we simply coached into a stud.

But it's also fair to be honest - the class was underwhelming outside of DGB and Mauk. If you got the coaching staff in a moment of candor, I think they'd say the same.

Look at the programs they played for and the recruiting classes they came in with. Mizzou is not at their level in any way as of right now.

What's your point? You don't think having a Calvin Johnson type WR on our team will come in handy?

With what Mizzou already had on the roster they added a potential Calvin Johnson type prospect, I'd say it was a good offseason. Not great in that they lost some guys that could have really turned out but solid.

I'm of a different breed. Grew up in a split househould in that mom was a KU fan and dad is a MU guy.

I went the KU way because of basketball but I have alot of respect for the Tiger football program and tend to hope for them to have success.

Funny story in that I think dad had a chance to go to the game today in Columbia and asked if I was interested. I politely declined as I don't think I would have been accepted in Mizzou arena with my Hawk apparel very well. I think mom and dad are gonna make the trip up to KC and go to AFH for the OK. State game. Dad's not too excited about it but he said he could suffer thru it.

ANyway back to the subject. Dorial is a great get for the TIger program.

You misunderstand me, or perhaps I did a poor job of explaining.

We move from 11 in the conference to 8 based on the average 'strength of stars' ranking. Our average recruit is something like a 3.11 star; only nominally better than Vanderbilt and Kentucky. From a 'stars' standpoint, the quality isn't even really that spectacular.

I think the staff really likes this class. I'm sure they'd have liked a couple more players, but there are some nice pieces in there.

We got studs at Guard/Tackle, QB, and WR. That alone makes it a nice haul.

Those guys did end up at some of the "blue bloods" of CFB and came in with loaded classes.

I think Dorial will help the Tiger program more in the fact that he will show similar recruits that it is ok to go to MIzzou.

IMO thats the reason Alabama, LSU, USC etc. can stay that good. They don't just get the top guy, they get multiple guys that are at the top. I think that is what this get could do for Mizzou.

Of course it could go hte other way in that this is just a one hit wonder. I hope not but you never can tell. In the end these are 18 year old kids making these decisions.

If Franklin develops and Mauk is as advertised, then pairing DGB w/ the skill position players he has around him, especially if Josey comes back healthy, will give him as much chance to succeed as Peterson, Barkley or VY ever had.

If Mizzou fails, it won't be because of their offensive skill position players. It'll end up being because they can't run the football against those big lines in the SEC and they can't stop the run; they could just get 'out-physicaled' down there. He'll have better talent around him than guys like Calvin Johnson or Larry Fitzgerald ever had.

The offensive talent among the skill position players is world-class. They truly can run with the big dogs in that regard; the question is the big uglies in the trenches.

I'm anxious to see how Mizzou's offense translates against he Alabama's and the LSU's of the world who have world class athletes on the defensive side. Not saying it will fail just curious.

I'm also worried that Josey won't ever be himself again. If it was just the ACL i'd say it's pretty pessimistic to say he won't but with the Patella and the MCL added it's gonna be a long road.

It really is all about the trenches for MIzzou, especially the dline. Look how many dlineman come out of the SEC and make it to the NFL. IMO they need to focus on taking some of the great athletes they get and putting them on the defensive side.

Change everything? We aren't KU. We aren't trying to build a terrible program up to something great. We're trying to build a very strong program into something even better.

I'd rather compete against the best. If I wanted to root for a team that got wins against crappy competition, I'd pull for Northwest Missouri State.

As for the bust factor, the worst #1 recruit in the last decade went in the third round. I'm not too worried a bout a 6'5 225 WR who runs a 4.4 and holds the record for most career receiving yards in the history of high school football being a bust. He might get hurt, but he's not going to fail due to lack of talent.

8 wins has become the baseline for Mizzou football. We did that after losing underclassmen at DE and QB who went top 10 in the NFL draft and had to start a true Soph at QB.

The bottom of the SEC is better than the bottom of the Big 12. MU was having a challenge winning the big 12 north, let alone the big 12 outright.

If you say so. That's still only 1 5-star and 1 4-star. Not saying you guys shouldn't be excited about the guys, but I think it's going to take a lot more to be even *competitive* in the SEC.

Maty Mauk, Morgan Steward, and Donavin Newsome are all going to be great players. I don't care if Rivals rated them three stars. The way Rivals keeps waiting fantastic spread QB prospects so low is silly. If they're trying to rate prospects based on college potential, guys like Chase Daniel and Maty Mauk should have been four stars a a minimum.

Mizzou is not going to get there over night. But they will have the opportunity. Continue to improve in recruiting and on the field, and I think they can win the SEC.

Equal revenue sharing in SEC helps too. Mizzou will have more money to improve the facilities and the Mizzou brand.

Do you actually think you can contend for anything meaningful in DIV 1 CFB? and you are calling me the dumb one. :spock:

I'm not understanding the point of an Iowa fan running amok in here. Go find a Stanzi thread to fill your spank bank.

I think that's a pro-sportsmanship video playing on the videoboard. I'm not sure, though, because DGB just walked on the court. #Mizzou

This thread is better, except for that cocksucking Iowa fan that has been hanging around.

Not going to be a close game if they don't miss a 3

Damnit...need to take better shots.

At least we got an offensive foul on Taylor on the other end.

Mizzou in the bonus. Need to start pounding that ball inside and drawing those fouls.

It's 7 fouls to 3. When I made the post, it was 7 to 1.

I don't expect anything less in high-intensity games like this, though. Nor should anyone else. Mizzou will get more of the calls.

Robinson had rebounding position there, by the way. That's why the foul was called on English more than any other reason.

Reminding one of their hypocrisy isnt trolling.
