I've got to hand it to Bill Self: I didn't realize someone could sound as beautifully patronizing to a bunch of adults as he has in discussing Mizzou's move. From the Post-Dispatch article below.

"Hey, those guys have our respect. And to be honest with you, they seem to me like they're really good kids. ...

"But their administration, with the support of whoever, made the decision. And they knew when they made the decision that this was going to be something that could affect the future of the relationship."

You knew when you made the decision to [open that jar of candy] [sneak back outside to play] that it was going to be something that [affected how you would sleep tonight] [got you grounded]. But you did it anyway. And I've got to say, I'm not even mad. I'm disappointed in you.

"With the support of whoever." Love it.

Well, Kansas thought about throwing Mizzou an enormous lifeline and giving away last night's game. But then they didn't.

So as expected, Mizzou added a 20th signee to the 2012 class yesterday, a raw Florida athlete named Brandon Holifield. Perhaps you remember the back story from last week: he's played organized football for just one year, and he was committed to Miami before getting cold feet about the Hurricanes. He visited Mizzou recently, felt "at home," and eventually signed. He is the perfect type of wildcard with which to cap a class; almost nothing will be expected of him (by me, at least), but just in case he figures out how to turn athleticism into football athleticism, Mizzou made an offer.

Meanwhile, I'm not even going to paste in Gabe's answer to the mailbag question below -- I'd rather see your own answers first.

    mjkstl asks: Mizzou has had 10 great seasons of QB play from Brad Smith all the way through James Franklin. Can you rank the QB play, seasons 1-10 please? I have a good idea which QB season is #1, but, I am curious as to where you would rank Franklin's 2010 with some of the other seasons we have seen turned in over the past decade.
