Mizzou (and Big 12) Football Links
First things first: Mizzou-Illinois tickets are on sale!!
Second, Gabe and PowerMizzou were on a friggin' roll yesterday, dropping both perspective and news...they're all over the football links...

PowerMizzou: Danario Alexander anxious to return
He said his rehab has been going very well and he'll be back to full strength in a couple more weeks. At that point, Alexander said he will choose from a small group of NFL teams that have expressed interest in signing him. He declined to name the specific teams, but he did say that he and his agents have narrowed the list down to three.
"A couple teams said they want to see me work out, just to see me run and stuff like that," Alexander said. "But a couple teams have said they'll sign me right off the bat. I'll be making my decision in about two weeks and I'll be ready to go from there."
InsideSTL.com (Gabe Dearmond): It's time to forget last year
As far as the bowl games go, well, you can't really deny what happened. Nebraska came out pissed off, wanting to prove what it did in the Big XII title game was no fluke. They had the good fortune to be matched against a team on which I could not name a single player. Sorry, Arizona, but if there weren't 342 bowl games, you wouldn't have been in one.
Meanwhile, Missouri went to Houston pissed off as well. Except they were pissed off they were in the Texas Bowl. They thought they were better than that game. The way they played, the Tigers may not have beaten a Texas high school team, much less a participant in the Texas Bowl. Navy ran all over Mizzou and, more disturbing, threw all over them as well. The game has been relived more in the past six months than any single Missouri sporting event I can remember. If I see the words Navy or "two-man front" in an Internet post now, I simply gloss right over it to the next topic. We get it. Missouri sucked. You're mad about it. Get over it.
