  • Will Mizzou Get to Dance?

    I say no, unless they win the Big XII Tournament.

    You figure they will beat A&M, but then they would probably play KU again and they will be going for the trifecta this year. I know it's hard to beat a team 3 times in one year, so the experts say, but if Mizzou can't beat KU on Senior Day in the last game at Hearnes, what makes anyone think they will suddnely put it all together and go on a run at this point?

    This quote from Bernie's column pretty much sums up the Tigers this year:

    I will apologize in advance for the cheap shot I am about to take at Snyder, but here goes: If Quin couldn't get his team fired up for an event of this magnitude, then maybe he should have asked Norm Stewart to coach the final game at Hearnes
    Paulding didn't show up again. I bet he's wishing he would have went to the NBA last year. He certainly didn't do himself any favors this season. He played like he was afraid to get hurt.

    And, for the first time that I remember, someone (Kroenke) has used the excuse of all of the turmoil outside of the program as an excuse for their poor play this year.

    "There were so many outside things going on," Kroenke said. "We might have let it get the best of us. Maybe our minds wandered a little bit."
    I was wondering how long it would take before we heard that line.

    I think if they make the championship game of the Big 12 the are in.

      How were they not fired up? If anything, the clanging free throws tells me they choked under the weight of such a game. I don't get that conclusion.

      There are many things you can nail QS on but I don't think that's one of them.

        I agree. I argued differently yesterday, saying if they beat KU in round 2, they are in, but I think with some of these bubble teams winning in their tournament, they need to make the finals.

        That implies they will beat Texas in Texas.

          How would Kroenke know, though, Elvis? He played 8 minutes.

            My guess is if we win 2, we have a 50/50 shot, nobody knows what will happen in the other tournaments. Getting to the championship game should get us in.

              They will beat A&M but the train will stop there.

                He was wishing that before the season ever began.


                Mizzou doesn't deserve to dance. I think they're done.

                They might win one in the tournament, but not two. It wouldn't surprise me if they lost their first one.

                  I agree they probably now need to get to the championship game, and play well in that game. I thought they would beat either Texas Tech or KU. Didn't happen.

                  They've played a tough schedule, but they certainly didn't beat too many tough teams.

                  Maybe one more game at Hearnes (versus SLU in the NIT)?
                  I'm always right.

                    This implies they will possibly lose to KU 3 times this year. Cripes.

                      I'd like to see them get in. BUT if you don't want Quin Snyder anymore, not getting into the tournament would expediate that change.

                      2 wins might get them in. 3 wins definitely.

                      If we lose to KU twice, I will puke.

                        phantom,

                        How do you see them beating Kansas?
                        And, frankly, it has never occured to me that "winning" a debate is important, or that I should be hurt when someone like Airshark or kah, among others (for whom winning a pseudo debate or declaring intellectual superiority over invisible others is obviously very important) ridicule me.

                          We are a better team.

                            Championship game or bust.


                            They have a chance to make the tourney with less than that....but only if all conferences are won by NCAA bound teams anyway.
