But keep trying to explain away how 12-2 and a top 5 finish isn't "tearing it up."
When you're done playing intellectual twister, make sure you stretch out really well. Would hate for you to get stuck in one of those extreme positions you twist into.
There are 6M people in MO. You can't get to 16M eyeballs. This isn't rocket science Duncan. For someone who has a good handle on Sabermetrics this calc should not confuse you.
And like I say, there is a large chunk of MO residents (cough cough) that don't like Mizzou and don't watch their football games anyway. As to "tearing it up" ill stand on the facts. 9 wins vs teams finishing 22-50. MU tears up crappy teams yes.
