    The quote for the Columbia Missourian article is a little misleading. From the context of the rest of his quote, it sounds more like he’s saying that all teams in a conference not only play for their school but also represent their conference in bowl games, as he said Missouri did that for the Big 12 when it was a member. Also, the writer later uses the word “quoth.” Come on, man!

    • Mark

      I think Pinkel needs to STHU. He says “NOW that we’re in the SEC…” which makes it sound like they DIDN’T play for their conference before, which, of course, contradicts whatever point he’s attempting to make.

  • Mark

    About the term “Big Game Bob.” I thought that people in Sooner-ville used that term as a badge of honor for their coach. The Grantland article makes it sound like it’s an insult. Which is it?

  • Mark

    My biggest concern with the bowl game is still gonna be our offensive line. That and Chelf’s accuracy. I’m sorry, I meant his ‘akercy.’
    Anyways, despite the huge improvement made with the O-line over the course of the season, I’m still not convinced they can impose their will against a talented D-line. Pass protection really broke down in the Bedlam game. Missouri scares me in this regard.

    I liked the Georgia video but DANG it seemed about 3 and a half minutes too long. Narraration seemed to get redundant-reminded me of my old Comp I papers when I was out of content, just simply re-word and say it a different way to get the word count up.
