SI's Mandel Ranks Mizzou's bowl #10th most interesting

1

"10. Insight (Dec. 28): Missouri (10-2) vs. Iowa (7-5). The Hawkeyes are better than their record (or at least they were at one point) and should play like it. Adrian Clayborn and the D-line could cause problems for Mizzou quarterback Blaine Gabbert." Not bad given the first 6 are locked away from us to start with. OSU in spot 8, OU in 11, Nubs 20 (heehee), Baylor 21, Tech 25, KSU 28 Go big 12(ish)

Interesting to try to figure out what they all have in common, and why this would be the case. My theory is that it's coaching innovations, but we certainly can't blame it all on Bettman.

Webb was sacked off of a bull rush that pushed Tanner straight back. But with Zlatnik getting blown off at guard and Thorson doing his best matador impersonation it’s not necessarily about scheme. Zlatnik I haven’t seen enough of on the field to make a determination but I’m shocked by Thorson’s play… I must say, I’m not looking fowarwd to Aldus Smith…

The former coach of Manchester United's £7.4 million summer recruit Bebe says he tried and failed to sell the player for just €150,000 in January... "Last season we had no money at all," Paxaio told the Daily Mail. "We were trying to transfer Bebe to other clubs. We had to raise money desperately. We told everyone in England and in Europe: 'For €150,000 you can have him'. "We couldn't get anybody interested. Nobody trusted him. None of the clubs were interested because he had never played at a high level."

In place of shootout, ZERO points for a tie

So here' s my proposal: When a game ends in a tie you play some amount of 4 on 4 (5 minutes, whatever - sudden death, golden goal if you like), and if nobody scores, then both teams get zero...

Big 12 announces name change.

In light of new numerical and political realities, the former "Big 12" conference will now be known as "Texas's Gang". Like any proper posse, status and money will be distributed according to how close you sit to the boss. Mike Alden has released a statement saying: "we are a prou... are a pr..We are... a member of Texas's Gang." Dan Beebee released his own statement shortly thereafter saying: "We are a proud member of Texas's Gang, SIR." (note: couldn't post this without putting a URL in, so here is the onion for your entertainment and diversion. Lord knows we need it right now).

One wild card in the goalie maneuvering is San Jose’s Evgeni Nabokov... Right now, he’s splitting duties with Vesa Toskala who is earning $4 million less than Nabokov. Certainly there is incentive to deal Nabokov, since Toskala seems like he’s establishing himself as a premium netminder."

Would it be good for Canada to lose to the US?

MacGregor says at least it would give them an extra game against a bad team to build chemistry and be more battle tested. Not entirely convinced, but we may have to be telling ourselves this anyway. I think on balance I'd rather they just dominate, though.
