Up to a point that is, but “Missouri has got more of an overall game,” says everybody’s favorite pigskin purveyor Craig Glazer. “Compared to the Chiefs they’re more talented and really, they’re closing in on what could be a historic year. I was a little hasty when I dunned them.”
That’s basically what passes for the good news right now.
“But it’s coming down to they need to beat Ole Miss,” Glazer says. “Because with the loss to Texas A&M, they’d be tied with South Carolina and South Carolina would play Alabama because they beat Missouri. But wait a minute, South Carolina has to play Clemson which may be better than them. So even though that game’s at South Carolina, Clemson may well beat them.”
So that’s pretty much the bad news.
“But maybe Missouri is better off not playing Alabama at 10-2,” Glazer says. “Because then they’ll be 10-3 and if they’re 10-2 they might get a really good bowl game.”
The Scribe’s overall assessment of this year’s Mizzou squad?
“Well, it’s still hard to swallow that ridiculous field goal loss two weeks ago and their very weak shot at an undefeated season,” Glazer says.
What about the so-called Cinderella Factor?
“I think you could call Missouri Cinderella if they get in that SEC title game,” Glazer says. “I mean, they could get a big boost if they get (James) Franklin back at quarterback. But like the Chiefs, Missouri is having a way more interesting season at this point than anyone expected.”
