Iowa Beats Mizzou in Insight Bowl

What a turd of a game. I wish I had just gone to sleep instead of watch this one. At least I didn't travel half way across the country to see this piece of shit in person. Last night the Missouri Tigers lost to the Iowa Hawkeyes 27-24. If these two teams play 10 times, there is no way Iowa wins twice. Missouri blew this game, simple as that. This is the second year in a row the Tigers have laid an egg in a bowl game, losing last year's Texas Bowl to Navy.

Blaine Gabbert looked great for most of the game, and certainly put up steller numbers - 41 completions in 57 attempts, 400 plus passing yards with a TD throwing and one rushing, and most importantly to the outcome of the game, 2 uncharecteristic Interceptions, one of which was ran back for the winning Touchdown. Gabbert will likely declare himself for the 2011 NFL Draft (if there is one) because scouts are high on him making this probably his last game in a Missouri Jersey.

Luckily, no one really cares about Bowl Games and they are completely meaningless in the grand scheme of things. There is only one Bowl that means anything, the National Championship. Did any of you even remember what Bowl game Missouri played in last year? Didn't think so.

Mizzou Faces Test Saturday in College Station

The Missouri Tigers head to College Station, TX on Saturday to take on the Texas A&M Aggies in an 11AM kickoff Saturday Morning. The Tigers are an undefeated 5-0 and 1-0 in the Conference having shutout Colorado at home last week. The A&M Aggies have lost two straight and are sure to be good and pissed for this one especially after the tough loss at home last week to 12th ranked Arkansas. Texas A&M leads the all time series with Missouri 7-3.

It's a big game for the Tigers and their Quarterback Blaine Gabbert. If the Tigers are to challenge for the Big 12 North, they need to be without a loss when they head into Lincoln for a showdown with division favorite Nebraska on October 30th. Gabbert is nursing a painful hip pointer injury sustained in last Saturday nights game. If he is not 100% it could hurt Missouri's chances at stealing an ever elusive conference road win.

The Aggies are a 3.5 point favorite. It may come down to how well the Missouri defence plays - if they can stop A&M like they did Colorado, they stand a good chance. I think Missouri wins this one in a close game - let's go with 27-24.
