Oy ... the kid kept VERY weird hours yesterday and last night ... working on miniscule sleep ... thank goodness MIZZOUCURATORPALOOZA™ 2011 will distract from me having to generate any afternoon content for another day, huh?
Sometime after probably 5pm or 6pm this evening, we will either be hearing "We are proud members of the Big 12" or "Curators authorize Chancellor Deaton to pursue SEC" (only, in much more vague, official language). I know some people may be sick of this topic, but it so directly affects Mizzou's next five to 50 years that I don't think we have a choice but to let it take over the conversation when it wants to. This week's football game is huge, but only as it pertains to 2011. Hopefully today signifies the beginning of the MIZZOUEXPANSIONAPALOOZA™ 2011 end, one way or another.

Later this week, we'll discuss the K-State game (and the suspension of the Unholy Alliance) in earnest. For now, read the links below and realize that this is the most important game of the season, and it isn't close. Oklahoma was the biggest opportunity, but K-State is simply the biggest game.
