Wasn't last night fun?  Hopefully this same feeling comes around again Sunday morning.  Let's enjoy last night's win for today, but tomorrow we start moving towards the big College Gameday showdown at Allen Fieldhouse West  Bramlage  The Octagon of Doom on Saturday.

All of the Game Recaps You Could Ever Ask For

Rather large gallery for this one.  I'm sure it had nothing to do with it being Missouri.

No. 2 Kansas too big for MU to handle -
Proper situation for "That's what she said"?

Kansas still reigns -
It's good to know that we now have Whitlock's blessing. The only thing this article is missing is a racial undertone or a ridiculous statement meant to rouse readership.

Kansas natives help drive a stake through Missouri -
The Kansas Kids (that's what we'll call them from now on) get some real love. Only in Durham, NC will you see this much love for some white boy college basketball players.

From Behind (Permanent) Enemy Lines

Tigers crumble under weight of KU’s Aldrich -
"The sobering reality about Missouri's 84-65 loss at No. 2 Kansas on Monday night was this: With the possible exception of kidnapping KU center Cole Aldrich on his way to Allen Fieldhouse, there was nothing much Missouri could have done to avoid the thrashing it received." I liked that part.

Tigers get run out of Lawrence |
Yeah, basically, that's the gist of it.

Daily Australian Open Link.  The last American (I think) in the men's draw is out. But, give Roddick credit - he fought through a shoulder injury all match and came back from two sets down.

This will likely be 1) the most publicity the Royals get on Yahoo! or ESPN all year long, and 2) the highlight of the year.
