Nice little boost

Kansas-Mizzou: One Way to Win, One Way to Lose - The Triangle Blog - Grantland
Does anyone know if this guy has a dog in the fight here or is he just impartially saying that Kansas should have won this game and had it taken from them by an official that let himself get caught up in the moment?

Kansas-Missouri demonstrates pitfalls of conference realignment - Seth Davis -
H/T to Esteban for this one in the fanshots. It's worth putting in our news and notes today if anyone has some further discussion.

Really good look at the Big 12 race.

Bracketology 2012: Missouri Crashes The Top Line After Kansas Win -
Latest Bracketology. Mizzou earns the no. 1 seed in the Midwest. I know we like to harp on the whole Final Four thing, but they'll have as good of a chance as anyone at getting past that this year. Especially with the draw this one maps out.

Bracketology - NCAA College Basketball Brackets and Predictions - ESPN
Similar to the SBNation viewpoint but this one sends Missouri out West with Ohio State getting the Midwest regional and Kansas as the #2 seed in that situation. Might actually be a better draw for us although Florida would be a tough one and look, is that Bucknell?

Big 12

Weekly Watch: Week 9 - ESPN
Big 12 is labeled THE most exciting league race.

Tigers take league lead |
We're going to have to win out if we want this thing outright and we can only lose one of @Baylor and @K-State if we want a share. Missouri isn't losing at home and they've managed to scoot by a few close calls with very little left in terms of challenging road opponents.
