No baby, don't you fret
We're livin' in the future
And none of this has happened yet
-- Bruce Springsteen, "Livin' in the Future"
Can't win in November? Can't win on the road? Can't win in Boulder in particular? Don't matter. We're officially living in a world where Missouri beats conference foes with winning records by 45 points on the road. And we've got the official recap and box score (Mutigers.com) to prove it.
