The Mizzou Tigers will send Truman to Manhattan Kansas and salvage the university's only weekend victory savoring the possibility of a national championship run (or at least a north championship game at arrowhead next). They will need to because the roller tigers will fear their paws on wheels when Quinn Snyder comes out of hiding and decides to coach the roller Tigers. Having never donned skates, Snyder is nevertheless seen on the bench flipping his hair back a time or two and offering players cars for goals.
UMSL crosses over into the cornfields of Illinois and leaves the husks on the ground for 2008.
The Baby Bears of Washington University will continue their winning ways, but it is a mirage. They have yet to face their elders, nor the university of confusion Truman state. Instead they will feast on a billiken, which is a long 4-course meal served during billiken season and beat the Woody Allen lead Kansas State Wildcats from Manhattan. Eat your pourage now baby Bear, 2008 will bring a harsh reality across your campus.
Truman State looks to fair well, but still cannot explain why they were previously Northeast Missouri state and named after the puck stops here guy from Northwest Missouri, leaving Northwest Missouri nameless and agitated with only Mark Twain to misname themselves. Perhaps when Tom and Huck reach St. Louis by raft to face Southeast Missouri they will recosider the virtues of the atomic bomb and not drop it on SIU, but simply whitewash the fences.
Lindenwood. Well well. Sleep fast tigers. Aaron "the sargeant schulze" Schulze and "Killingin thenameofain't she" will spoil your fancy little sweatsuits and explode all over your net like pirranahs in a fish tank. The little tiger of the state will want to duck back into their bowl of frosted flakes with the forthcoming collapse. Fear Lindenwood, the end is near.
And as everyone is aware papa bear will turn the billiken into the stay puff marshmellow man and send the Western Kentucky hilltoppers back praying for the first weekend in May. the sun may beat down on Kentucky in May, but I'm calling for lost in the smog to win this weekend.
As to the university of missouri rolla. With Mizzou, St. Chuck and Lindenwood, well its a tough schedule. Come clean and admit that your city was named after Raleigh, north carolina (probably by the same people who call Missouri, Missoura) and perhaps when the truth sets you free, so to will you prosper. Meanwhile await your counter attack on St. Patty's and invite us all. For those not from Rolla be prewarned not to sip from Alice.
