Mutigers.com's got your official release for tomorrow night's Mizzou vs Hilton Coliseum matchup.

Missouri is 0-3 on the road this year, with losses coming at Arkansas, at Cal and at Mississippi State ... The Tigers had leads in the final 10 minutes of all three contests and hope to record back-to-back wins in Ames, Iowa, for the first time since 1993-94 and 1994-95 seasons

Steve Walentik's got more in his Big 12 basketball notes.

Anderson recognizes how little beating Texas will mean if it can’t survive the rest of its tough early season conference schedule, which includes a home game against third-ranked Kansas on Saturday in between road trips to Iowa State — Wednesday night — and Texas Tech and Colorado — next week. Anderson’s team is 0-3 on the road this season.

The Missourian mentions that MU's guards are getting some attention after their solid performance against Texas.

The Cyclones fell 74-67 to Baylor on Saturday in Waco, Texas. Iowa State faced some experienced backcourt players, something Missouri also possesses. This was a concern for Iowa State coach Greg McDermott.

"We don’t have a lot of depth there (in the backcourt) nor do we have a lot of experience there, outside of Rahshon Clark and Wesley Johnson," McDermott said. "Everyone else we are playing there is new. Certainly any team that has experienced guards concerns me, and that was the case with Baylor, and I feel the same way about Missouri. We’re going to have to play better in the guard court than we did Saturday down at Baylor."

It's Like Father, Unlike Son!

Something I hate to mention on a Mizzou blog: Kansas is looking really, really good.

And once again, OU responds to praise from me by going into the tank.

Dave Matter's got today's football fix--he lays out the 2008 Mizzou depth chart.  He also links to news that sets Mizzou's 2008 season even better: the career of Mizzou killer Curtis Lofton is over--he's going pro.

After his strong performance at the US Army All-American Game, Blaine Gabbert is now Rivals.com's #14 player in the country and #1 pro-style QB.

Well, at least one good thing came out of this weekend for the suddenly-struggling Mizzou Wrestling squad: Max Askren, Big 12 Wrestler of the Week.

How to win on the second night of a back-to-back after losing the first game in double OT: jump out to a 25-12 lead and coast.

Finally, a skinnier Big Baby?  Try a malnourished Big Baby!  Big Baby hasn't seen Lyons' weight since 3rd grade.  I do like Doc "Sloth" Sadler, though.
