    Surprise, surprise, MU vs. ku

    Missouri can't hit the broad side of a barn, particularly from downtown, after hitting nearly 60% of all shots on Saturday. Wow, I don't believe it...

    Maybe the team that Missouri is playing is providing a stiffer defense?

    Not that big of a surprise given the situation - just got ranked, not much experience in the national spotlight, playing against a tough defense. That said, they could yet settle down in the 2nd half.

    I figured someone would say it is the defense. Iowa State's defense was not that bad. Most of Mizzou's three point shots were contested on Saturday. It is the curse that has replaced Hilton Magic.

    I might agree with you, if we were talking about the game we played in Missouri. But, most of the shots they were dropping on Saturday were highly contested. They're taking many of the same shots tonight, and they're not dropping. I would guess it's mainly because most of the guys shooting them have terrible form, and that sometimes they just get lucky...

    I think MU just spent the entire month of January gameplanning for ISU, and now they have nothing left.

    You may be on to something.

    Mizzou 3-point shooting vs ISU:

    22-41 54%

    Mizzou 3-point shooting vs the rest of the conference:

    47-139 34%

    That settles it. We're their SuperBowl.

    We simply have a knack of making teams look good against us. Is anyone surprised?

    No. Its what happens to bad teams. They make mediocre teams look like worldbeaters.

    ISU is Mizzou's super bowl.

    Hmm. Well, with Mizzou out of the equation, we are allowing 32-101 (31.7%) from 3-point land in conference play. Only kansas is better in the league. Try again...

    Re: Surprise, surprise, MU vs. ku

    After watching both games, THIS year I think it was a case of Mizzou being totally on fire both times, not just us being bad. Down in Columbia we also played like crap and turned the ball over a bunch but to say we are just "that bad" that they shoot 20% better against us due to our team sucking is stupid. If they shoot like they did against us in the rest of their games they'd be equal to or better than Oklahoma IMO.

    Crazy mediocre MU winning against KU....


    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'
