First, I love BTF! He has some very good information. When he is wrong, he is blasted until tomorrow by people who have no information, but point out that he is wrong.

Second, people complain about others pointing out when they are right.

Sheesh. Can't win. You are wrong, you get blasted. You point out when you are right, you get blasted.
Someone took their overreaction pills today.

Gettin' closer
Mizzery is a different team than last year. They are playing well but don't have the experience for the big lights of this game. We are also different but retain the core experience that gives us an edge. Our offensive strategy is greatly improved over last year. We have the X-factor in Groce. Predicting a win for the good guys by 7 in a hard fought game.

27 hours.

Saturday is going to be a great day.

I hope we put a hurting on them so ferocious it forces Haith to go into early retirement.

Mark these three down:

Providence barring defections will start in the top 25 next year and have a great overall year. If Council and Ledo play look for them to be a top 15 team at the end of the 13-14 season.

Purdue will work their way into the top 25 next year and make the tournament and the same goes for Vanderbilt. The Commodores are at full strength now with Daijon Parker finally coming off of suspension.

I also said UF has the ability to make back to back national championship appearances earlier in the season before the super hype took over. Tough loss in Tucson but this is a tough squad which is obvious by their pre season ranking. I just felt like even with the ranking role weren't sold as quick as I was on the Gators. On top of a stellar recruiting class they also add two high profile transfers in 13-14.

I also put people on about how good Pitt, and Duke were going to be this season.

I could go and find all this information despite how poorly it was written if you want?

Now for the Tigers vs. Missouri matchup. It's going to be a tough game as always with the Tigers adding a very good player into the mix of an already tough Tigers squad. We are going to have to play our best ball of the season and JB like last year is the x factor even though Bell, Ross, along with Brown are ready for the task of slowing him down. BP is going to get his and I think T.A. matches up great with Pressey. Please, don't let him beat us again on a drive all the ready to the hoop. I forget where ML was on the play but he should of send that shot flying like he did against the Golden Gophers last second chance in our meeting this past season.

I-L-L

Did we get a roll call for this game, by the way? What are everyone's pre- and post-game plans?

Man I want to go so bad....oh well, after X-mas shopping I think I'll be better off watching from the couch.

Let's pray our 3 balls find the hole tomorrow.

Schlafly TapRoom is where I'd go for cold ones.

Over/Under Sports Bar is pretty cool, I've been there a couple times and it's not too far from the arena

If not that I guess you could hit up Union Station and find something

I'll actually be on a plane for most of this game. Poor planning on my part. As soon as I land, I'll have to refrain from using twitter and this site so I can watch the game in peace. So excited!

You're a better person than I am. I'd be on ScoreCenter as soon as I got off the plane to see whether or not I should bother watching the replay/DVR.

Have a safe flight!
