A few housekeeping notes first. I apologize for not getting a Slate posted on Friday. There's a good reason for it, but let's just say it involves my day job, a very early alarm clock and a bit of a drive.
Second, I owe you basketball recaps for the Colorado and Texas Tech games. I was going to post that yesterday, but ran out of time to work on it. We'll do a recap that includes the Missouri game tomorrow or Wednesday.
Speaking of Mizzou, K-State travels to Columbia today for an MLK Matinee. Tipoff is at 4:30 p.m. from Mizzou Arena. The Tigers are coming off a heartbreaking overtime loss to Texas A&M in College Station.
From Rock M Nation, Know Your Wounded Rival. Bill has an excellent analysis of today's game. Of course, I hope he's about four points off in his predicted score, but given where we were after last Wednesday night, a three-point loss wouldn't be the worst-case scenario.
Going back to Saturday, Texas Tech ran into an angry bunch of Wildcats. Before the game, I texted back and forth with Seth of Double T Nation, and he told me to "[e]xpect the worst defense ever." At halftime, with 52 points on the board for K-State, he asked if he had oversold how terrible Tech's defense was.
Curtis Kelly played well in his return from suspension. More, please.
Mike Anderson has made comments about officiating a couple times this year. Mike DeArmond wonders if Anderson will be fined. I find the whole thing a little ironic.
