How many did Oklahoma State drop on you Saturday2 More than a Florida squad playing with their bakkups for 10mins against Mizzou...but we won't mention how many YOU scored! Mizzou will be fine!?
What is going on with college basketball this year? Kentucky, Kansas, North Carolina....all look pedestrian to me! I believe it Michigan State, Indiana, Florida, and a surprise mid-major as a final 4.Hmm. UK, KU and UNC always do well in the tourney so don't know what you are talking about there. Kansas is a lot better than you give them credit for. Michigan State has no shot at the Final 4. They'll be lucky to get out of the second round.
I wouldn't mind running in to Mizzou in the tourney. Borrowed from phog.net: a.) During the time period specified, our former 'rivals' in Columbia checked in with nine -- nine -- first round exits -- 1986, 1987, 1988, 1990, 1993, 1998, 2000, 2011, and, of course, 2012. b.) Which means that every one of their coaches during this time -- Norm, Quin, Mike and Frank -- contributed to this impressive bit of history. c.) The above cited seasons denote, of course, NCAA Tournament first round exits. We would be remiss if we did not also cite from the pages of missouri basketball history the years 1985, 1998, 2004 and 2005. Which denote first round exits from the NIT. That's right. The NIT. d.) If we look at those 28 years in which the NCAA Tournament has included a field of 64 schools, and factor in the information from point 'a', above, it would seem to say that our friends in Columbia have a first round NCAA Tournament exit on their resume nearly one third of the time. e.) But if you factor in the years 1997, 2006, 2007, and 2008 -- when old mizzou was not invited to the field of 64 -- as well as 1991 -- when they couldn't participate due to being on probation -- the percentage would be closer to 40%. That is nearly half of their participation in this event marked with a first round exit. f.) The record of 16 wins, 18 losses, zero Final Fours, zero Finals, and zero Titles is not accurate. The 18 losses, zero Final Fours, Zero Finals, and Zero Titles part of it is. The 16 wins is not. Three of those need to be deducted. Because their three Tournament victories from 1994 were officially striped from the record by the NCAA due to Jevon Crudup's being cited as an ineligible player.What did you say? You really expect someone to figure out that blob of crap? Seriously, white spaces really do increase readership.
only TCU has a lower RPI than Auburn and Mississippi State in the SEC. So congrats...OUCH! Set yourself up on this one!
