Rock M Roundtable, Live Thread Edition

Alright, business travel, yadda yadda yadda, I (correctly) didn't think I would have time for copy-pasting an e-mail exchange, so ... it's time for a Wednesday afternoon live thread!

1 - So ... Independence Bowl. Apparently Mizzou had discussions with both the Pinstripe Bowl in New York and the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl in San Francisco but decided to pursue The Port because of ease of travel for Mizzou fans. Correct call?

2 - Last night, Mizzou beat a decent team, far away from home, by double digits despite not shooting particularly well and falling into a smidge of foul trouble. All things considered, do you consider the win over Villanova more or less impressive than the massacres at the Sprint Center a couple of weeks ago?

3 - Compare Mizzou's start in basketball to other recent hot starts (2008-09, 2006-07, 2001-02, etc.). Are you more or less optimistic about this season than you were about others in mid-December?

4 - Anything I should do while in Atlanta, other than take a pick axe to the spot in the Turner Field parking lot (where Fulton County Stadium used to stand) where Sid Bream slid under Spanky Lavalliere's tag in 1992?
