The excerpt below pretty much sums up the Big XII season:
Until this season, Mizzou football was best known for being on the wrong side of bizarre plays in other team's championship seasons: Colorado's famous ''fifth'' down in 1990 and Nebraska's miracle kicked pass TD that saved the Cornhuskers' in '97.On the bright side, Missouri will in all likelihood go to a top bowl game- probably the Cotton Bowl according to ABC Sports announcer Brent Musburger. With as tumultuous a season as it has been, a decent bowl game isn't a bad consolation for any team.
A win over a traditional power to win the Big 12 title would have been a major step toward erasing that dubious distinction.
But the Sooners are known for winning championships and dominating the Big 12.
Finally, just because I have to say it: so much for Sports Illustrated's 35-31 prediction. Enjoy the crow, boys. I hear it tastes mighty good down in Dallas.
But I'm a forgiving person. Less the esteemed writers become disconsolate, they can always pop in the video of tonight's game and play the Brent Musburger Drinking game.
