So does it count as a "surprise" when you upset a team that you already beat two of three times in the regular season? Regardless, Mizzou took out Texas last night and will now face Texas A&M instead of Kansas. God, Kansas, do you always have to avoid playing us?

(For those interested, Mizzou and A&M played a ridiculously close series in College State at the end of March: Texas A&M won 8-6 and 7-6, and Mizzou won 4-3.)

And yeah, Mizzou almost certainly has to win the conference tournament to get an NCAA bid. Tim Jamieson has been saying for a while that the Tigers should be in good shape if they can get to 30 wins (they're currently 29-26), but that non-conference schedule was so weak that I can't imagine that's the case. The resume is certainly decent -- series wins over Auburn, Texas, Oklahoma State, Kansas State -- but the late series losses to Memphis and Kansas had to doom them. Either way, it won't matter if they can win a few more games and get the automatic bid.
