Got the girlfriends and wives set up with clear, plastic baggies to haul their ganja, feminine hygiene products and iPads into the stadiums?
Good for you.
Now all you have to worry about – if you’re a Missouri Tiger or K-State Wildcat – is how unbearable your football teams this year will be.
According to sports scribe Craig Glazer it won’t be pretty.
Biggest loser-to-be among the two teams?
“Missouri’s a better team, but neither one of them is going to have a good year” he says. “Missouri’s probably looking at winning five or six games.”
Well, they just got their bell rung,” Glazer says. “They’re a mediocre team at best and probably below that. They’re just not any good.
“They were an average team last year – a nice little team that played way over their heads – way over. And that was proven in their loss to Oregon 35-17 in the bowl game. Oregon crushed them.
“When crunch time came last year they were ranked No. 1 in the nation, but it didn’t last five seconds. K-State was a good team last year, but not a great team.”
“Boy, that’s a good question, but it’s questionable” Glazer says. “I don’t think that spread offense works in the SEC. The SEC defenses crushed Missouri last year.”
And this year: “I see them at 5-7.”
Should the Tigers have stayed in the Big 12?
“Yeah, they should have as far as winning goes. Because they’re becoming pretty irrelevant in the SEC and they were relevant in the Big 12. You know, maybe some day they’ll be good again, but I think they’re going to have to fire head coach Gary Pinkel.
