Mizzou Links, 5-21-12

Someone is late to the party (he had a busy afternoon yesterday), but ... MISSOURI TIGERS: 2012 COLUMBIA REGIONAL CHAMPIONS.

This is Missouri's fifth consecutive regional title. That is really, really hard to pull off. So is a fourth consecutive Women's College World Series appearance, for that matter, and Team Stubble has a chance to check that one off this coming weekend as well. LSU is an excellent team, though, and Mizzou will need some impressive crowds to help them out. Times and dates are yet to be determined.

Chelsea Thomas' weekend: 22 IP, 1 ER, 11 H, 28 K, 3 BB, 305 pitches (208 strikes)

Ashley Fleming's weekend: 5-for-11, 1 2B, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 2 R

Translation: Chelsea Thomas and Ashley Fleming made quite a bit of money for Missouri Children's Hospital.

Missouri and Kansas are on the same side of the bracket, so technically Saturday's game may not have been the last of the rivalry ... that said, it was still nice to take that final game on Saturday, wasn't it?


A couple of weeks ago, I was utterly baffled by the FSU-to-B12 rumors. Since then, I've learned just how much FSU fans resent the ACC (not quite "Missouri fans v. Big 12, circa 2010," but closer than I had anticipated), and everything has begun to make a lot of sense. And you know what else makes sense? Jason Kirk's "SEC-Big 12 Rivalry Series" post below. This could be fun.

(Also: all weekend, I tried to come up with a witty "So the SEC and Big 12 are friends now; that's Missouri's fault, too, right?" post on the Rock M Twitter account, but I could never actually figure out how to make it witty enough to post. Alas, missed opportunities.)
