Mizzou Links, 4-20-10

Yeah, you knew I wasn't going to be able to resist sharing two Twitter posts from our very own Kim English last night ... one of them is in FanPosts already, but that's not going to stop me...

Post #1: Just picked @bumjuice1873 's brain for 2 1/2hours.. Guy "KNOWs" the game.. Gonna talk to him everyday. My midrange feelin Good. #phonebooth

Post #2: When I say phonebooth. That means I rarely fade away, or drift left or right. Imagine shooting a jumper n a phonebooth. Sr8 UP, Sr8 down.

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes.

    Condolences to the KSU family on this one ... not a ton of details yet, but it sounds like it must have been a pretty freak accident.

  • Big Ten
    Post-Dispatch: Pinkel has mixed views on Big Ten

    Dr. Saturday: Irish fans lay out anti-Big Ten arguments in convenient t-shirt form
    Dr. Saturday: Expansion and the 'superconference': A very long love story

    The Big East, having narrowly avoided the guillotine earlier this decade, can already see the writing on the wall for its existence as a major (BCS) football conference if the Big Ten poaches two or more of its members to form a 14 or 16-team juggernaut -- and possibly for its existence as a football conference, period, in the drawn-and-quartered fashion that did in the SWC. But even if the Big East is the most direct, obvious casualty of a Big Ten power grab, it doesn't take much creativity to imagine the dominoes falling in a pattern that crushes larger, seemingly more stable leagues.

    See, for example, the Big 12, which lays prostrate from the major players in all directions: The trio or quintet of teams the Big Ten plans to bring aboard to become a 14 or 16-team conglomerate could easily include Missouri, a potentially disastrous departure that would cost the conference two of its biggest television markets, St. Louis and Kansas City. The North Division could be further ripped asunder by the Pac-10's courtship of Colorado (without whom Pac-10 expansion is not really possible) and possibly, if the sky seems to falling around it, Nebraska. To the south, the Miami Herald's Joseph Goodman isn't the first to see the SEC making a move for Texas and Texas A&M. Even if the imperialist plunderers leave Oklahoma, a conference anchored by Kansas, Kansas State, Iowa State and Texas Tech obviously cannot stand as a "major" football league. And there are at least a few people already who think it won't, a victim of its demographic destiny.
