Mike Alden's Contract Extended through 2019

Mike Alden may be the best AD Missouri has ever had, which is why we should fire him right now*. *That was sarcasm

"This entity needs to be separate," [DeLoss] Dodds told the Austin American-Statesman of his ideal playoff plan. "It needs to be their own bowls, their own TV, their own sponsors. Those four selected would not play in the bowls. And I'd have ‘em bid it out to cities and stadiums for the three games, and I favor neutral sites for the games because using the campuses (as semifinal hosts) would be too much of an advantage."

Even in the Big Ten, Nebraska can't get away from Texas

Michael Dixon vs. Kansas State Fans. Round 1. FIGHT!

"He (Dixon) knows he can come to us and say, 'This guy's an idiot. Take care of it,'" Bartlett said. "They were trying to distract him from his main goal, trying to get him off his game. We wanted to let him know we would do everything to make sure that didn't happen."

COLUMBIA, Mo. -- A line of ordinary folks in green "Event Staff" shirts stood facing the Missouri student section late Saturday. "You can't stop us!" the students chanted, and every time they did, one of the green shirts would glance back at the thinner line of actual law enforcement officers behind them with a look that pleaded, "You've got this, right?" Even if his colleagues couldn't stop the outpouring of raging hormones from the stands, University of Missouri police officer Dustin Moyer had his assignment locked down tight. Moyer, a five-year veteran of the force in his first season as Missouri coach Gary Pinkel's gameday bodyguard, predicted Saturday's result two weeks earlier. Not long after the Tigers beat Colorado, Moyer began formulating a plan. "He was real serious," Pinkel said. "He said, 'I want to know how you want to get off the field when we beat Oklahoma.'" By the time Oklahoma's last lateral hit the field and the final whistle blew on Missouri's 36-27 upset of the No. 1 team in the BCS rankings, the students already covered one end zone. Then, they surged over Missouri's sideline and toward the Tiger logo at the 50-yard line. Moyer's first mission was to get Pinkel to Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops for a postgame handshake. He had to call an audible. "We didn't even get to Bob tonight," Moyer said. Then, Moyer had to get Pinkel to the end zone, where Pinkel would hug quarterback Blaine Gabbert and tell an ESPN audience exactly how much one of the biggest wins in school history meant. How did Moyer, a slim, athletic 27-year-old from Lamar, Mo., matriculate Pinkel through the crowd? "You know what a fullback does?" asked Moyer, who is a celebrity in his own right. (He won People magazine's 2009 Sexiest Dad Alive poll)

Oh, so NOW Pinkel uses a fullback?
