Kicking the Tires: Missouri

I'm finally back with my completely unscientific "preview" of tomorrow night's game with Missouri.  My apologies for doing a poor job lately of getting game previews up.

Even though it's at home, tomorrow night's matchup with Mizzou (17-3, 4-1 Big 12) looks pretty daunting on paper, as you'll see below.  The Tigers are a deep, balanced team that ranks highly, or at least better than K-State, in almost every statistical category.  That's not to say the Tigers are invincible; they've fallen apart against Illinois and Nebraska slowed them down earlier this month.  Still, it's going to take a better effort than we've seen out of this team in January to get a win tomorrow evening.  Let's hope the win over Colorado last Saturday gives this team a newfound sense of confidence.
