    Really Missouri, really

    Bigger injustice: Mizzou to Shreveport or OSU out of title game?

    Is that all Missouri fans do is whine about how they are mistreated?

    Oh, poor Missouri.

    Re: Really Missouri, really

    Yes and of course that they are not treated as the world beaters that they are.

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    Bigger injustice: Mizzou to Independence Bowl or Gary Pinkel's inhumane treatment of the alphabet?

    Yup. They just got even by Pinkel voting OSU no. 4 below Stanford.

    This was the only comment worth noting in that entire story...

    "Worse than either of those is Virginia Tech being selected for the Sugar Bowl."

    Actually I did read the article before I even posted it.

    First the title. How can you even compare the two? How is this an injustice at all?

    Second, did you read the article?

    Particularly considering the way the Big 12 bowl slotting has worked in the past, as Mizzou fans know, it's really no surprise Mizzou was left on the outside looking in from Big 12 bowls as it heads out of the league. Business as usual doesn't seem like such an injustice in a sense.
    Translation. We always get screwed by the Big 12 so we really can't expect any more.

    Missouri's fate was not so shocking given its lame duck status in the Big 12. But despite being leapfrogged by Iowa State, Mizzou took the high road and refrained from criticism.
    Translation. Same as above, plus we are so much better than the Big 12.

    I guess my real disgust comes from them thinking they got hosed to begin with. Isn't there a rule that states a team with a winning % has to be taken by a bowl in conference tie ins before teams with a even record? Basically, Missouri would have to of chose to go to the Independence Bowl over the Pinstripe. Missouri wasn't left out of a Big 12 bowl, Missouri chose to be out of the Big 12 bowl selection. Most likely they saw this as a chance to play in SEC country.

    They are just setting the table for the lack of fans that will go to the game.
