I very much encourage you to read all of Matter's Notebook piece below. It is very much worthy of one of your free clicks if you are hoarding them.

  • We Win!
    The Trib (Dave Matter): Emptying the Notebook: Capos come through

    And in winning, a flood of emotions spilled onto Faurot Field in the aftermath. There have been no shortage of emotional games in the Pinkel era — these guys sure can turn on the waterworks — but other than the 2007 win over Kansas, I can't recall such an outpouring of raw feeling from players and coaches. Steckel kept it together, but he had a long embrace from Athletic Director Mike Alden on the way to the locker room after the win. Yost choked up several times in postgame interviews. Players described the last few days as draining and stressful. A win didn't forgive Pinkel's mistake, didn't heal Henry Josey's knee, didn't erase the Tigers' five losses. But when Michael Sam snatched Seth Doege's tipped pass to clinch the comeback, you could sense the weight of the world slide off everyone's shoulders. This game won't be remembered for much in the annals of Missouri football history, but it might have been the most cathartic victory the program has ever experienced.

    "It was rough, but we knew we had to win this game," Sam said, "not just for the seniors, not just for each other, but for this program. … Everyone's human, and we all make mistakes. Nobody's perfect. I know we're going to get through this together, and we're going to stick together as a team."

As I mentioned on Twitter yesterday, it is a damn shame that ABC/ESPN cannot loan Joe Tessitore to CBS so that he can do the big SEC games down the stretch as well, just to keep the chaos going for a little while longer. That he did both the OU and OSU games this weekend is simply amazing. And while I'm still 100% in favor of the SEC move, I do have to mention just how damn fun the Big 12 has been this year. Obviously I'd have preferred it if Mizzou were still involved in the conference title race -- something that would have required them to close the deal against both Kansas State and Baylor -- but there have been more fun games in this conference this year than in the ACC, SEC and Big East combined, I'm pretty sure.
