Mizzou Links, 5-15-07

  • New Rivals NCAA Baseball projections are out, and they have as a 1-seed AND hosting a regional (against TCU, Minnesota, and Troy). I'll believe it when I see it, but that would be frickin' fantastic. For that to happen, I'd say they need to win 3 of 4 to end the year (against Illinois and Oklahoma State) and play well at the Big XII tourney.
  • Tonight's baseball game against Illinois hasn't been rained out yet! 'Yet' being the operative word there. It's supposed to rain again tonight. Amazing. If the game does take place, Mizzou will face a pretty hot team. The Illini are coming off of a home sweep of Indiana and a 4-game split at 1st-place Michigan, and they've won 8 of 10 overall. In all, they're 14-12/28-22, good for a tie for 5th in the Big Ten.
  • Mizzou Softball's NCAA tourney game against SIU will take place Friday at 4:30.
  • And this is one heckuva "oh by the way", but...oh by the way, Mizzou Wrestling coach Brian Smith was named Dan Gable Coach of the Year yesterday. Congrats, coach. Oh, and Ben Askren won yet another national award. Ho hum.

And would the correct grammar there be "heckuva" or "heckuvan"? It preceded a word starting with a vowel sound, you know...I don't want to screw up the grammar on fake words...
