Baseball performance through March

[Bumped to the Front Page.] With a month and a half in the books, let's take a look at some of the numbers from the baseball team to date. Technically these stats are only through March 30, but I...

Of note to Mizzou: - Home against Georgia (likely Sept 8) - Bama is our non-rival West opponent (ugh) - Tennessee in Knoxville in November

aTm game to kick off at 11 on FX

I can't help but think of Ubben's preview of the Big 12 slate, and how one of his reasons for Mizzou not having success in College Station this time was that the game would certainly be under the lights. Guess not. This makes 4 of 8 Mizzou games visible to the entire country, which is really a remarkable percentage considering how much of ABC/ESPN's coverage has gone regional. [Bumped to Front Page because ... hey look, another 11:00 AM game!]

Someone gave them a first place vote, which I took to mean that Billy Gillispie had one or seven too many before filling out his ballot. KU and aTm tie for the 1st place spot.

Familiarity Breeds Contempt

Mizzou's road woes have been pretty well documented this year, but they've also had some disappointment in beating Texas Tech and losing to aTm by worse margins than previous games with them....

Is it some sort of rule that we have to play on a weeknight when we play in that time zone? New Mexico, Nevada, and now Arizona State.

There is no logical reason to value the road fact over the home fact. They are both facts that are equally true. People will say there are no tournament games at home, but there aren’t any true road games either. It so happens that most teams that dominate at home are very good on the road and vice versa, and thus there’s a lot of overlap in both groups. The exceptions are interesting, though, and Kentucky represents an exception this season, just as Duke did last season, and Missouri did in 2009.

Dan Hanner compares Pomeroy's efficiency margin in games v. Top 100 opponents v. teams ranked 100+ and finds Mizzou is one of the teams performing significantly better against the better competition. [Bumped to front page.]

F is for Futurama Sometimes only robot humor can sum up the depths of sadness a team can sink to, and those times usually have something to do with Ron Zook. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oMT3niGHWY8 Illinois had a lead, which means they were going to lose a lead, which they did, blowing a 13-3 halftime lead and losing 23-13 to Missouri. If we could teleport into the soul of an Illini fan for just on second, it would have been at the moment when Mizzou's Carl Gettis downed a punt at the Illinois 1 early in the fourth quarter. Sitting there on the one yard line with a freshman quarterback looking 99 yards down the field at the endzone they needed to get to, the sense of impending doom must have been so vivid it had its own smell and taste, something like "Ron Zook's FAILpops for Children: Now With Real Glass!" As only Spencer Hall could, Mizzou/Illinois makes the Alphabetical

In fact, Hoch mentioned that he was recruited to play H back at Mizzou (as was Trey Millard, at Rock Bridge). This would continue a trend that began midseason with Andrew Jones functioning more as a blocker than a receiving threat.

Category Two: Mascot: Nebraska relies formally on Herbie Husker, a jut jawed farmboy who looks like Terri Hatcher after a robust sex change operation and extensive hormone therapy. He has large feminized eyes, the kind of chin one can only get via a genetic condition, and large, feminine eyes you can stare into for days. If he succeeds in his plan to kidnap you and keep you in his crawlspace.

Nothing new here, but it's from Chris Brown of Smart Football, so it's worth a read. One thing I don't get is this opinion that Gabbert has markedly less mobility than Daniel. If anything, I think Gabbert might have more utility as a runner than Daniel, and he's certainly not slower than Chase despite being bigger. [Promoted for Front Page Friday!]
