    We have praised Missouri's basketball team for its record, its hard work, its unselfish and unified play. But I wanted to mention something that deserves more praise: this is a classy group. It really is. Two things made that perfectly clear in recent days. First, after MU raced back to upend Kansas on Saturday night, Kim English and Marcus Denmon took a stand and discouraged fans from rushing the court at Mizzou Arena. Why? A simple reason: the Tigers' players expect to win home games, even against Kansas, so there's no need to act like you've never won a big game before. I like that. Second, when Oklahoma's Steven Pledger missed a 3-point buzzer shot that would have tied Missouri on Monday night, he slumped to the floor -- distraught by the miss. MU's Ricardo Ratliffe and English displayed first-rate sportsmanship and fine decency by walking over to Pledger to help him up and console him. The OU hoops office was so impressed by that, it posted a photo of the scene on Twitter and praised Ratliffe and English.

Mizzou can lose at Lawrence and still take at least a share of the conference title as long as Kansas loses to somebody else. Last night was a good opportunity for such a loss, but the Jayhawks proved once again that if you punch Baylor in the mouth, the Bears might fold. I would call a 32-4 run "folding." So now, of course, I have to say ... Go Kansas State (next Monday)!

    minxcat asks: Now that the 2012 recruiting class is in the bag, what are your thoughts on the 2013 in-state class? […]

    GD: As far as the 2013 in-state class, it isn't nearly as good as 2012. Missouri offered 11 players last year and a total of 16 committed to BCS conferences. I think both numbers could be lower this year.
