What its like to be a Missouri fan

1. Football team has one of its best seasons in ages.
2. Finish the regular season by beating arch-rival Kansas to make it to Big 12 championship for the first time in history, and hand Kansas its first loss of the season in the process.
3. Get catapulted to the #1 position in the BCS poll.
4. Lose to Oklahoma in the Big 12 championship game.
5. Likely miss out on a BCS bowl despite #1 ranking, while Kansas is projected to go to the Fiesta Bowl.

Even when Missouri beats Kansas, they still find a way to lose.

And I should point out that it seems that I was right about Mizzou's defense needing to step up. Didn't seem like they ever got the chance to put any pressure on Bradford, and couldn't seem to make a tackle without Oklahoma picking up a few extra yards.

Mizzou's offense didn't seem all that potent as well.

Mizzou went 11-1 in the regular season. Granted, losing the Big12 championship sucks, Mizzou had a much better season than I expected starting the fall.

Do you think Daniel will come back for his senior year?

I thought the Missouri offense moved the ball pretty well, except once they got in the red zone. Plus, they didn't seem to have much time of possession in the second half. If they had 5 minutes in the 4th quarter, I'd be surprised.

I'm sure Chase Daniel will be back for his senior year. He's too small to be a high NFL draft pick, if he's even be a draft pick at all. They have most of their offense returning, so hopefully they've focused on recruiting so big defenders to help them actually match up against the likes of Oklahoma.
