SMQ ranks Mizzou at No. 7

SMQ's day-by-day revelation of his Top 25 teams hit "The Short List" (No. 10-6) today, ranking Mizzou at No. 7. Copied below is the first part of his Mizzou capsule. The rest of the post, including more on Missouri, can be found here.

7. Missouri
If you think margins matter, Missouri is your team: the Tigers (this stretch of the countdown does love its Tigers, no?) outscored opponents last year by 17 points per game and only took two of their dozen wins by single digits, over Rose Bowl-bound Illinois in the opener and Orange Bowl-bound Kansas in the finale -- and both the Illini and Jayhawks had to stage late rallies to get the final score within a touchdown. They were felled by the pair of losses to Oklahoma, and basically dominated everyone else, including Nebraska (+35) and bowl teams Texas Tech (+31), Colorado (+45), Texas A&M (+14), and, maybe most memorably, Arkansas (+31) in a Cotton Bowl rout that wasn’t nearly that close. On a week-to-week basis, this may have been the best team in the country.

By the way, apparently someone on the SB Nation network has previously used the tag "SMQ is an advanced human being from another galaxy sent to humble us all with his infinite wisdom." I felt compelled to hop on board with this tag.
