    You know what really grinds my gears? (Hint: It's Mizzou)

    So we have to sit around and wait for Mizzou to decide whether to leave or not because they are so great because of their huge TV markets. They do so well in those TV markets that our game against them isn't on TV at all this week. I understand they have a lot of people in their viewing area, but how many are actually Mizzou fans? And how many actually tune into their games?

    You know what grinds my gears?

    When they refer to themselves as MIZZOU. There are no freakin Z's in Missouri.

    It just screams, look at us, we are hicks and prefer to change the spelling rather than pronounce it correclty.

    It would be like Iowa refering to itself as IOWUH because some of them pronounce it poorly.


    Oh, and I agree with your gear grinding rant as well.

    Having grown up to the state just to the south of Iowa, it's much more annoying when they pronounce it "Missourah." Hillbillies.

    Meh. If the Big 10 was interested in expansion and ISU was in the mix, we would be doing the EXACT same thing MU is. MU looked around and said, wow, this conference is jacked up. SEC just went to an odd number, so maybe they could use one more??

    We should almost be thankful of what A&M and MU are doing. UT finally put together a revenue sharing package that is reasonable for all the smaller schools.

    I hope MU stays and benefits from the leverage they have helped create.

    No coupons, but you win 5 Schrute Bucks. They are worth 1/100th of a cent each!

    Some of their fans are the most arrogant people in the world.

    Most MU fans and reporters don't even think this game will be close let's hope the players are thinking the same thing.

    I say its just a few million people living in a constant state of Misery

    Q. What do you call a full row of Missouri fans at Faurot Field?
    A. A full set of teeth.

    His gears probably got ground because of the lack of the Glendower Banner.
