No idea what to say about yesterday's K-State ending that hasn't already been said. We saw about six touchdown celebrations YESTERDAY that were more "excessive" than the one that was flagged, and I think the refs' weary "It's in the rulebook, just shut up already" response is incredible (considering other celebrations that took place even in the same game). I know the game doesn't really matter, but ... damn.
As for Nebraska...
1) Further proof that the team that wants to be there more, wins in bowl season.
Oh yeah, and WOW, did Missouri look good last night.
Also: GREAT tourney win for Mizzou Wrestling.
Okay, one more thing: Happy Birthday, Mom!
