MU beats Baylor - Proves Superiority Over KU Advances in Big 12 Tournament 2012

No more proof is needed, after MU completely destroyed Baylor today, it has been proven beyond a doubt that MU is far superior to KU in basketball. KU was easily defeated by Baylor last night and then MU turned around defeated Baylor tonight, proving easily that MU could have stomped all over KU in the 2012 Big 12 Tournament.

The Missouri Tigers, lead by English, defeated the Baylor Bears today by a score of 95 - 76, absolutely TROMPING the Bears, who last night walked all over the Kansas Jayhawks, eliminating KU from the Big 12 Tournament in 2012. KU will be watching the rest of the tournament from their couch as MU advances to the Big 12 Finals. The ease in which the MU Tigers defeated the Baylor Bears shows how bad MU would have defeated the KU Jayhawks had they met in the tournament. As the MU players interviewed stated tonight, "Kansas City is OUR house, NOT ANYONE else's HOUSE" - an obvious territory marking aimed at all of the superficial KU fans that litter our fine city. KU is now a National joke, and MU will be remembered as champions. They should be given the number 1 ranking that the deserve by the time the Big 12 Tournament wraps up, as Kansas proved that it had no business being ranked number 1 in the first place.

A small number of KU fans could be heard grumbling and booing in the beginning of today's match at The Sprint Center in Kansas City, but the KU fans soon shut their mouths as MU just creamed the Baylor Bears, silencing any doubts as to whom was the better local team. MU now owns the Sprint Center and KU must go crawling back to the small hippie town of Lawrence, Kansas where smoking pot and listening to Phish is the main hobby.

MU has fought all the way to the top of the heap in the Big 12 in the 2012 season, and they will be leaving for the SEC being the crowned champions of Kansas City. What a great send off for MU as they go on to compete in a much more competitive and more respected league, leaving KU back in "middle school" so to speak in the lowly Big 12.

KU Loses to Baylor MU Beats Texas 2012 Big 12 Tournament

Mizzou gets the last laugh as KU pathetically loses today to Baylor, thus knocking KU out of the Big 12 Tournament. Meanwhile, the better of the two local college teams, MU, stomps all over Texas like they weren't even there. That's KU out, MU in, and the Jayhawks will watch the rest of the Big 12 Tournament from their couches while the Tigers march on to the finals.

Today's Big 12 Tournament excitement started with a match up between Baylor and KU at The Sprint Center in Kansas City under the big spotlight. The number 1 seeded KU Jayhawks were immediately eliminated from the tournament by a thorough beating from Baylor as they sidestepped, juked, picked, blocked and SLAMMED against the weak KU defense all day long. The Jayhawks exit the Big 12 Tournament with little more than a "squawk" and they will watch the rest of the tournament from the couch. A fitting end to the KU Jayhawk season as they looked weak all season, losing to MU in Columbia in a decisive win by the Tigers, and then getting extremely lucky a few weeks later when Mizzou allowed the Jayhawks to miraculously come back from a 19 point hole at halftime. As KU walked off the court at the Sprint Center today in complete shame, the news started coming in from the second, more important game...

Enter the MU Tigers, the Big 12's best team by far, only ranked number 2 due to a skewed college NCAA ranking system that has always favored the hawks. MU showed the world which team was the best once and for all as they stomped all over Texas by a whopping score 81-67. Texas never stood a chance against the amazing MU Tigers basketball super power, and the Tigers had their starters pulled by the end of the game. Had KU and MU met in the Big 12 Tournament, it is now obvious that MU would have pummeled KU by a very large margin with almost no effort. KU showed how weak they were today, and MU showed how strong that they are.

MU will now go on to brighter pastures in a more elite league in the SEC, it was nice knowing you KU, but MU is going to need some better competition going forward.

Chiefs Franchise Tag Bowe - Kansas City Chiefs News

The Chiefs are making some moves in the off season and the biggest one so far happened today when the Kansas City Chiefs put the Franchise Tag on Dwayne Bowe, the Chiefs somewhat flaky but occasionally talented wide receiver. It's pretty sad when a team has to put a franchise tag on a mediocre player, who in the case of the Chiefs hardly gets a chance to make game changing differences. With two mid level quarterbacks on the roster, and an offensive line made of swiss cheese, the Chiefs have MUCH bigger fish to fry than to put a franchise tag on a slightly higher than mediocre wide receiver like Dwayne Bowe.

After an extremely lackluster 2011 Chiefs season, Dwayne Bowe put up a lukewarm 81 receptions for a measly 5 touchdowns - yikes! That's what the Chiefs call franchise tag material? Wow, we must be worse off than we thought. This is a sign that the Chiefs offense still has no direction whatsoever and we could be in for another 10 touchdown season total from this sputtering offense. Here at Kansas City News we have never been fans of Matt Cassel, figuring him to be the NFL's highest paid "back up" quarterback. With the franchise tag, Dwayne Bowe's salary will be 9.5 million dollars in 2012. He is a good back up quarterback, and did lead the New England Patriots to the playoffs when Tom Brady went down - but the fact that we paid this guy almost 60 million dollars to come play for the Chiefs is just plain ridiculous. With mediocre quarterbacks like Matt Cassel and Kyle Orton at the helm, putting the franchise tag on Dwayne Bowe just doesn't make any sense. If there is no one to get the ball to our receivers, then why are we putting such a high priority on them? The Kansas City Chiefs are going to be a defensive team, there is no doubt about it. We've made Romeo Crennel, who will absolutely be focusing on the defensive side of the ball, our head coach. And what is worse, we've brought in a terrible offensive coordinator from Miami in Brian Daboll, who had a miserable offensive season in 2011 with the Dolphins.

The Kansas City Chiefs need to realize where their priorities are and they need to do it fast. Putting the franchise tag on Dwayne Bowe is not the first thing that Chiefs fans wanted to hear in this off season. What we want to hear is that the Chiefs are going to look for a REAL quarterback, invest top draft picks on offensive lineman, and try to find a way to get our offense back on track. Thank God that Jamaal Charles is coming back, that should take some of the spotlight off of our hideous passing game. The Chiefs defense looks great and I think that the defense alone can get The Kansas City Chiefs 7-9 wins in 2012. Let's just hope that they don't put the franchise tag on any more wide receivers - who's next, Dexter McCluster?

Kansas City News announces that the Kansas City Chiefs put the franchise tag on Dwayne Bowe, March 5th, 2012.
