Open Game Thread : Game #18 : #3 Kansas (17-0) @ Missouri (11-6)


Procrastination has killed what would have been one of my better posts, if I ever actually got around to doing it, matching up the four best teams in the country (UNC, Memphis, Kansas and UCLA) and using statistics to determine who is "really" the #1 team in the country. I will still do it, hopefully tomorrow, at the very least breaking down the two candidates for #1 now (Kansas and Memphis, assuming we don't blow it against Mizzou just like UCLA and North Carolina did today), but it won't be nearly as debatable.

North Carolina hasn't looked impressive for awhile now, it finally came back to hurt them. And I called the UCLA loss, but wasn't exactly expecting a USC win or anything like that. If you know what I mean.

In any case, tonight's matchup has changed from simply a Border War contest against Missouri to an opportunity to showcase our argument to be the #1 team in the country. Because right now, we deserve to be ranked #1. Son.

Where: Mizzou Sports Arena
When: 7:00 PM Central Time
