Missouri 41, Nebraska 6
Oh how I wish I had been in Columbia last night.
My memory is still filled with that horrible night in ’97 when the Tigers led #1 Nebraska until the final minutes when a dropped ball was kicked back up and carried over the goal line resulting in a touchdown for the Cornhuskers.

Yes, I was there. Yes, I will forever believe we were screwed out of a win. That was a rough night to be a Tiger. A night that lives on in the memories of all Tigers. The single most crushing blow in the season where tearing down goal posts and parading them through town to be chopped up at Harpos to celebrate was almost a weekly ritual.
Last night. Well, let’s just say this morning we are worshipping at the alter of Chase Daniel.
*ESPN- you are off the bad list, although when you started giving accolades to the Illini during this game I almost lost my shit.
**As of Monday, MU is ranked 11th.
