Responding with "Suck it slaver" or even calling him slaver comes off as very GPCesque.(suck it beaker, gayhawk, squawk)
+1 this guy is pretty ok he isn't like some MU posters of the past trying to get a gay reference in every post, he admitted when he was wrong.

A couple thoughts on Duke: They return their qb and I've heard they have some serious NFL talent on their D-Line. Ofcourse they lost to an FCS school so they aren't that good either. But keep in mind this is a team many expected to suprise in the ACC and I made a trip or two to their messageboards in the offseason and they were fairly certain they could sneak up on us and beat us.
The two real stories out of the Big 12 North from week one are Blaine Gabbert and Colorado.
I really want to see what Gabbert can do against Okie State, UT, Baylor and Nebraska.
Colorado was really interesting. The KC media made the claim all offseason that there was not much talent differential in the Big 12 North. Many favored Colorado based on schedule, they thought K-State had a chance to compete based on the perceived lack of talent. I have a hard time figuring why the "experts" couldn't differentiate between KU, MU, Nebraska and the rest of the big 12 North; imo the talent isn't close between those three and the bottom three. The vaunted CU ground game, which was supposed to "line up and run over people" (Phil Steele on 810 whb) produced 29 yards on the ground. I could be wrong but I'll go on record and say CU is the same team they've been the last three years.

I think Gabbert, CU and Baylor are the big news out of week one. Baylor has a legit QB and for the first time in a long time I don't have a "W" on the schedule next to them. Hawkins in on the bigtime hotseat. Losses to MU, KU and NU might send him packing.
Did anyone that watched the MU v. Illinois game notice Gary Pinkel used the same defense Bill Young used against Brad Smith? Worked out the same way as well.
I have said it for nine months now and I feel even stronger about it now, our game at Arrowhead will be for the Big 12 North Tilte, sorry Huskers. Nebraska has to go to Larrytown and CoMo and I just don't see them winning either of those games.
KU minus eleven versus UTEP looks like a steel. I thought that line would be around 21.
We are expecting a near sell-out in CoMo this weekend against Bowling Green. They beat us the last time they visited, Gary Pinkel's first game as Tiger's coach.
