  • Is MU gonna get a BCS bowl this year?

    Sadly it looks like they're poised to do so...perhaps we'll be in a position to knock them out of it

    It would not surprise me if we beat MU and drop them out of a BCS bowl.

    That's the kinda stuff we do to them

      don't they have to go to Lincoln and to Stillwater still? And then beat (probably) OU again in Texas? Remember how many times Pinkle's teams have faded down the stretch... They will have 2-3 losses by years end.

        Here is what they have left

        @ Nebraska
        @ Texas Tech
        KSU
        @Iowa State
        KU

        Granted, they have more away games than home games, that is a very favorable schedule. Probably looking at a rematch against OU in the Title game. But remember, if they lose to NU and then NU goes undefeated the rest of the way and MU won't go, right?

          Correct. This is the scenario that seems the most likely to me. I'd put it at 60-40 in favor of NU at home. Mizzou should win the rest of their games after Nebraska. Remember, it is VERY difficult to win out. Even if they were favored 80-20 in all five games, their chance of winning out is 32.7%. I'd put them at 15.7% to win out in the regular season, and at about 40-45% of a chance of taking the North title. We're looking at about a 1 in 6 shot of them making a BCS in my book.
