Chase choked. Mizzou didn’t want it and when I called a buddy on the phone and asked him what in the hell was wrong with Mizzou coach Gary Pinkel, he summed up the situation best when he stated:

“Pinkel got his contract”.

From the Houston Chronicle:

“KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Trying to slow down the high-octane Oklahoma offense is like slamming the brakes in the middle of the Daytona 500.

Just for good measure, Missouri might also want to hide the keys.

The No. 19 Tigers will be standing on pit road as they attempt to derail the Sooners’ BCS championship plans in the Big 12 Championship Game at Arrowhead Stadium. Fourth-ranked Oklahoma is seeking its unprecedented third straight Big 12 title and fifth in the last seven years. A victory would send the Sooners to the Jan. 8 BCS title game in Miami.

Just how good are the Sooners when they have the ball? The numbers would blow the circuits off any X-Box system:

•  The Sooners have scored 62, 66, 65 and 61 points over the last four games.

•  They are averaging an NCAA-best 53.3 points per game.

•  They’ve amassed more than 500 yards of offense in nine games and at least 600 yards three times.

•  In a game against Kansas State this year, the Sooners set a school record with 55 points in the first half.

•  In last week’s win over Oklahoma State, the Sooners scored on their final eight drives (seven touchdowns).

OU coach Bob Stoops doesn’t hesitate when asked if this is the best offense he has coached.

“I don’t think there is any question,” he said. “I wouldn’t have said that early in the year because you’re waiting to see how it goes through the rest of the season.”

OK, that’s about enough of that. Bottom line is Oklahoma is going into this game extremely cocky. Second, they’re not in Texas this time, they’re playing in Kansas City…OUR turf and the most important thing that the Houston Chronicle has to say about the game…

Missouri wins if: The Tigers can control the ball and keep the Sooners’ big plays to a minimum. If OU has a weakness, it’s on its kickoff coverage, which has allowed four touchdown returns this season. “

Bottom line, let Maclin receive it at kick off, cover for him and let him do what he does best, run the ball. On the defensive side, blitz the Sooners quarterback every chance we get and shake them up , (with the exception of 3’rd and long).
