Mizzu just gave Gary Pinkle a three year extention and raise to 1.3 mil. per year. He now has 5 years on his contract. Mizzu has two games left against ISU and KU and needs to win both to reach 9 wins. Word from sports talk radio in KC is "those two game are give me's. We're just giving it to him 2 weeks early."
Depending on if our team is really fired up or not to send Mac out on a winning note, I wouldn't say we are a "gimme." Neither is KU a gimme anymore either. Ask ISU, Nebraska, and Missouri themselves...
You could tell just by the way the Mizzou players and coaches were walking around, just by their demeanor, that they thought they were going to come into JTS and just punk the **** out of us. Especially after they drove down for a TD on the first possession of the game.
I'm really glad our players bounced back and made them pay. The Mizzou boards are in full meltdown over this and are very angry that their AD gave Pinkie an extension before allowing the season to run its course. I love it.
This just goes to show you, no matter how bad a team looks, there's ALWAYS the possibility they'll pop up from the grave and knock you flat on your back.
A "gimmie", my ***.
IMO that's the best thing about college sports! Sure you never know who will win some of the pro sports, but the emotions that go into college sports just can't be beat. Great to see a Cyclone victory against a Mizzu team that has enjoyed success this year.
