    Point spread for Mizzou game

    As of right now, we are a 9 1/2 point dog.

    It would be a fairly big upset if we win the game, but I think we have the psychological advantage. We've secured bowl eligibility already, so the pressure is off to a certain extent - in effect we're playing with house money. We have much more to win than we have to lose. Hopefully, we'll open up the entire playbook and play aggressively without fear.

    Mizzou, on the other hand, is finishing up a disappointing year. Hopefully, they will enter into this game without a lot of emotion.

    9 1/2 is a little big

    Re: Point spread for Mizzou game

    I think it is a little high, especially when you consider the fact that Missouri actually hasn't been very good at home (2-3). Missouri is getting over some injuries and starting to play better, however, we thought this after the Colorado game and Missouri was able to turn around and loss at home to Baylor.

    I think that if our defense plays to the level that they played in our other wins, we will limit them to 20 points or less. At that point it is up to our offense. We saw great improvement last week from the prior 3, however it was still nothing like it was against Kansas. I think Herman has been calling plays this past month to not lose games, this week we definitely need to call plays (and execute them) more aggressively.

    I think this game is going to be similar to the A&M game, unless Iowa State can figure out a way to put some points on the board.

    Re: Point spread for Mizzou game

    I think our defense wil play enough of a game to win. Our offense needs to show up. We must make gimme field goals (extra points...pplease don't go there). Offense needs to score three toughdowns. I think 24 points will be enough for us to win. I would like to see our offense play to their potential and the defense play to theirs. If they do we will win two more games this year!!
