Some good games tonight, including Mizzou taking on UCLA.

6:30 CST --- Bucknell (11-2) @ Loyola (10-3)
7:00 CST --- Jacksonville (5-7) @ Indiana (11-1)
7:00 CST --- Baylor (8-3) @ Gonzaga (11-1)
9:00 CST --- Missouri (10-1) @ UCLA (9-3)
2:00 CST --- Detroit (7-5) @ Temple (9-2)

Really rooting for Mizzou and the Zags tonight, so that our loss to the Tigers doesn't end up looking "bad," and so our win at Gonzaga keeps looking better and better.

Pretty good games for a Friday.
Must be the holiday week.
Don't think we will be so entertained most Fridays.
Agree with your support of Mizery and the 'Zags

It's nearly impossible for Mizzou to fall far enough for our loss to them to become "bad".

But it is possible for our loss to them to look "better and better" if they keep on winning.

LOL! Well I guess. But there really isn't such a thing as a "good loss".

Who is this horrible analyst for the Mizzou-UCLA game?? He sounds like he's 80 yrs old, and just suggested that women's college basketball should have their hoops lowered, so it would be easier for women players to "actually make some baskets."

EDIT: He also just said, "How fun is this?? These teams have physical fitness in them!"

EDIT 2: He also also just said, "Overtime! Let's do it! Oh wait, this is the end of the first half, nevermind." This guy is terrible. :laugh:

Although Mizzou winning would have made our loss look better, I can't help but get satisfaction anytime they lose.

Frank Haith returns to form. Some mind-boggling coaching decisions. Where was that scrambled mind a week ago?
