Live Thread: Missouri Tigers vs Oklahoma State in the Cotton Bowl (This. Is. Happening.)


I know what you are all thinking: If only there was a website doing a live blog of the Missouri Tigers vs. Oklahoma State Cowboys Cotton Bowl game so that I may follow along and comment when compelled to do so. Well, holy crap are you in luck! We, KC Kingdom, are doing such a thing tonight! LIVE!

Both teams in this game are coming off gut-wrenching losses. Mizzou lost in the SEC title game in which they gave up 545 rushing yards to Auburn. Oklahoma State lost a defacto Big 12 championship game with a brutal last second loss to Oklahoma. Each will be looking to rebound and gain back some of the promise the season once held.

Missouri is going to have another tough test trying to stop the Cowboys ground game. While they are no Auburn, OSU is averaging 172 yards per game on the ground, and has used that to bolster a passing game that is ranked 29th in the nation. The question for the Cowboys is how consistent will their quarterback play be? Clint Chelf and J.W. Walsh split duties as the starting quarterbacks this year, but neither had resounding success. What kind of play OSU gets from their quarterback will dictate whether this game is close or not.

This game has a lot of potential to get out of hand quickly if OSU isn’t ready out of the gates. Missouri has one of the most potent offenses in the country, and can rack up points very quickly.

So let’s get this thing started. And in the words of Mr. O’Reilly: We’ll do it live!

    To the best of my knowledge, I have never killed a person.

    Let’s get this thing started!

  • Joel Wagler

    Should be an excellent game

  • Aaron Reese

    Let’s do it live!

  • Joel Wagler

    Ben, did you lose your phone again?

    • Ben Nielsen

      Shit, where is my phone…

    • Joel Wagler

      LOL

  • Ben Nielsen

    Prediction: Mizzou 45, OSU 38

  • Ben Nielsen

    “Home of the Chiefs” could be heard during the national anthem because… well there is no good reason for it.

  • Ben Nielsen

    RT @DavidUbben Tough to tell the fan breakdown. Thought Mizzou would have more tonight, but it’s close. Probably 55-45 OSU. Very few open seats.

  • Ben Nielsen

    We are
    We are
    We are
    We are
    We are…

  • Ben Nielsen

    If you repeat something enough, it sounds cool. Or something.

  • Ben Nielsen

    This intro needs more Train.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Gus Johnson throwing out the “M-I-Z” … that was cool.

  • Joel Wagler

    I have a question. When did all this Zoo stuff start? Did it come with the SEC membership?

  • Ben Nielsen

    Mizzou wins the toss, elects to score first.

    I anticipate zero defense in this game.

  • Ben Nielsen

    RT @Speck60 Only terrorists don’t like Gus Johnson.

  • Ben Nielsen

    And here. we. go.

    • Joel Wagler

      My dog is named Wego. He brings me beer…

      • Ben Nielsen

        Good dog.

      • Aaron Reese

        My dog refuses to mix me a gin and tonic. Rude.

  • Joel Wagler

    Cowboys decided to go with their most plain uniforms in their closets.

  • Ben Nielsen

    James Franklin just earned a cheap flag to earn 15 yards on top of a long run. That works.

  • Joel Wagler

    Nice start by OSU

  • Joel Wagler

    Franklin should have kept that one

  • Joel Wagler

    I always decide to flush

  • Joel Wagler

    D’oh

  • Ben Nielsen

    3rd and 12. Franklin’s pass tipped and intercepted. Not an ideal start.

  • Aaron Reese

    Mizzou should stop being bad at football.

    • Ben Nielsen

      Dynamite drop in, Monty.

  • Joel Wagler

    DGB should have caught one!

  • Joel Wagler

    It’s got to be said..Clint “Top” Chelf

    • Ben Nielsen

      He seems like more of a bottom.

  • Ben Nielsen

    EJ Gaines is going to make some nice cash in the NFL soon.

  • Ben Nielsen

    “Kill it dead.” – Not Gus Johnson

    Just let Gus talk more, please.

  • Joel Wagler

    MU dodged an early bullet

  • Ben Nielsen

    I’m anticipating a Josey screen right here. Seems like a good time to do it.

  • Ben Nielsen

    RT @NFLDraftScout Speaking of cornerbacks, I have EJ Gaines ranked in the late first round too. #CottonBowl

  • Joel Wagler

    Missouri’s unis are like watching the game in 3D. They just POP!

  • Ben Nielsen

    That’s a catch.

    • Joel Wagler

      Agreed

  • Ben Nielsen

    I hope there is a big enough screen in that building to determine if it was a catch or not.

    • Joel Wagler

      That ticks me off. Now Kauffman Stadium has only the 2nd biggest HD TV in the world.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Call reversed, it’s a catch. Hooray.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Aaaaaaaand Franking immediately throws a pick. But there’s a flag…

  • Ben Nielsen

    PI on OSU. Big break for Mizzou.

  • Joel Wagler

    Easy call. I’m 500 miles away and I saw it

  • Aaron Reese

    Wow…that was a blatant penalty.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Everything from Franklin is high right now.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Mizzou should do more of the running thing.

  • Joel Wagler

    Man, MU is going to be really good next year.

    • Joel Wagler

      Especially in that weak-ass SEC

    • Ben Nielsen

      Return basically everybody on offense.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Man, I hope they can get this field flipped in time for the Dallas Cowboys playoff game this weekend. …

  • Ben Nielsen

    Shots fired! RT @RockChalkBlog It looks like missouri’s logo has feathers coming out the back. Can’t blame them for wanting to be more like Kansas

    • KYChiefsFan

      Tiger ate tweetie – feathers out the exhaust. MIZ

      • chiefridgy

        Please….u bitches ran to another conference

  • Ben Nielsen

    Oh man, that looks gross. Pretty sure that guy just snapped his leg in half.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Ah man, poor kid.

  • Joel Wagler

    It is hard to believe it has been six years since KU lost to MU and got to go to a BCS game anyway. It was such a perfect system…

    • Joel Wagler

      I think MU won out in the end. They have won more SEC games this season than KU has won Big 12 games since.

  • Ben Nielsen

    OSU’s offense has been a disaster early. Mizzou has clearly made some early adjustments to the running game over the last four weeks.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Oh. Hello, Mr. Murphy.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Another dropped pass by a Mizzou receiver. Are the Chiefs wide receivers playing for Mizzou today?

    • Joel Wagler

      Only Donnie Avery.

    • KYChiefsFan

      Hang on to the &$@? ball

  • Joel Wagler

    Man, Mu receivers can’t get open in space. OSU secondary has been awesome so far.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Franklin had Lucas wide open but missed him by about 70,714 feet. Approximately.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Franklin is 1-of-8 for 7 yards. Yikes.

  • chiefridgy

    FU MU !!!

  • Joel Wagler

    EJ Big Play Gaines

  • Ben Nielsen

    Chelf with a terrifying interception. Terrifying. How the hell do you throw that pass??

  • KYChiefsFan

    Time for a steady dose of Josey

    • Ben Nielsen

      Agreed.

  • Joel Wagler

    Pinkel may consider putting in Mauk to give Franklin a chance to to settle down.

  • Ben Nielsen

    RT #rockmnation Defense playing like it has something to prove after that SECCG.

  • Ben Nielsen

    HOLY CRAP, SOMEONE CAUGHT A PASS!

  • Joel Wagler

    MU not even trying to run the ball

    • Joel Wagler

      Andy Reid calling the plays for MU

  • Joel Wagler

    It feels as if this game has been on forever and there are still 5 minutes left in the 1st quarter. I’m going to miss my bedtime

  • Joel Wagler

    Where in the world was Franklin throwing that ball.

  • Ben Nielsen

    That was needed.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Catch. Somehow.

  • Ben Nielsen

    This game may last 7 hours.

  • Ben Nielsen

    That’s two late hits on OSU in this quarter. It’s as if they are doing it on purpose.

  • Ben Nielsen

    TOUCHDOWN, JOSEY!

  • KYChiefsFan

    OSU and Auburn like to tackle Josey out of bounds

  • Joel Wagler

    TD MU

  • Ben Nielsen

    Mizzou runs the ball, Mizzou scores. Stunned.

    • KYChiefsFan

      Finally found the formula

      • Ben Nielsen

        It’s about time.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Special teams are a problem.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Welp.

  • Joel Wagler

    Well, that was an ugly defensive series for MU

  • Ben Nielsen

    Not sure what the safety was trying to do there. Escort him to the endzone maybe?

  • Ben Nielsen

    Special teams are doing Mizzou no favors in the last five minutes.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Not sure how Chelf got that ball there.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Ponder! That play was needed.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Delay of game on OSU. That’s embarrassing….

  • Joel Wagler

    Didn’t help him too much

  • Ben Nielsen

    Clank! Games stays tied.

    • KYChiefsFan

      DOINK

      • Ben Nielsen

        Succop’d. :(

  • Ben Nielsen

    Mauk is in.

  • Joel Wagler

    I think the time keeper stopped the clock after every play. That 1st quarter took for-ever!

  • Joel Wagler

    Coming back

  • Joel Wagler

    Look at Maty go!

  • Ben Nielsen

    Whoa, Mauk! Where did that come from?

  • Ben Nielsen

    Mauk is trolling OSU now.

  • Joel Wagler

    Look at Maty go again

  • Ben Nielsen

    Mauk. Wow.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Can’t throw a much better ball than that.

    And how does OSU let a guy get behind them like that?

  • Ben Nielsen

    EJ Gaines. Good lord.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Chelf just overthrew a wide open Stuart, who would have scored. Chelf is horrible.

  • Joel Wagler

    Missouri settling down nicely in the second quarter

  • Ben Nielsen

    Ealy. Dude is going to maybe be a top 10 pick in the draft.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Franklin back at QB for no reason.

    • Joel Wagler

      Absolutely idiotic that Mauk isn’t in the game. And Pinkel wonders why he gets criticized sometimes.

  • Ben Nielsen

    And suddenly the Tigers can’t move the ball again. Three and out.

  • Ben Nielsen

    I will say Franklin looks better when his receivers actually catch the ball.

  • Ben Nielsen

    DGB should have gotten a call there. Looked like he got held.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Franklin doing his best Maty Mauk impression.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Someone made a field goal!

  • Ben Nielsen

    Halftime = Nap time

  • chiefridgy

    FU MU!

  • Joel Wagler

    Missouri hasn’t really moved the ball since Mauk left the game

  • Ben Nielsen

    So, I’m back. TV is out, but Internet is back. This should be interesting.

  • Joel Wagler

    What happened to the TV

    • Ben Nielsen

      No idea. AT&T hasn’t been kind to me lately.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Catching up. Good to see I haven’t missed anything.

    • Joel Wagler

      I’m writing…have lots going on this weekend!

  • Ben Nielsen

    Why is James Franklin still in this game?

    • Joel Wagler

      Sheer stubbornness…

  • Joel Wagler

    Uhhh, Coach Pinkel. Enough is enough. Get Mauk back in the game.

  • Ben Nielsen

    It appears Franklin is mindf*cked.

  • KYChiefsFan

    We let these guys hang around too long – needed to score and put them away

  • Ben Nielsen

    Mauk.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Oh boy…

  • Ben Nielsen

    Well that was needed. Mizzou has to score here or they are in trouble.

  • Ben Nielsen

    RT @McGregs85 I’ve been playing this game where I read my timeline and try to guess the Missouri & Oklahoma State score. It’s pretty fun.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Oh James… He really doesn’t deserve to go out like this.

    • Joel Wagler

      It is just not Franklin’s night, is it?

      • Ben Nielsen

        Nope.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Mizzou is incredibly lucky for this game to only be tied.

  • Ben Nielsen

    OSU corner Patmon used to be a Jayhawk. So….

  • Joel Wagler

    They should have been running more all game

  • Ben Nielsen

    Henry Josey. Touchdown. In my head it was an amazing run. My computer just says 25-yard run.

    • Joel Wagler

      Dude, what is up with your TV

      • Ben Nielsen

        Think it is the receiver…

  • Ben Nielsen

    Believe it or not, Mizzou has had more rushes in this game than passes. Averaging 5.5 per rush, 3.9 per pass.

  • Ben Nielsen

    I saw the gif of Josey’s touchdown (it’s on this post now). Dude is FAST.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Here comes the shootout…

  • Joel Wagler

    Oh my goodness James Franklin

  • Joel Wagler

    Wow, MU dodged a bus sized bullet there

  • Ben Nielsen

    I feel like I’m watching* the Chiefs game 24 hours early.

    *By watching, I mean following online.

  • KYChiefsFan

    Bring back Maty

  • Ben Nielsen

    I am so confused right now.

  • Joel Wagler

    If MU loses this game, Franklin is going to have nightmares about this one.

  • Joel Wagler

    How come Patmon never played this well for KU

    • Ben Nielsen

      I think you know the answer to that.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Good for Baggett. He deserved that one.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Whatever happens, it’s Gus Johnson’s fault.

  • Joel Wagler

    MU’s defense continues to get shredded

  • Ben Nielsen

    Mizzou’s defense has been on the field for 15! different drives. Think about that. You cannot blame the defense for this.

  • Ben Nielsen

    DGB with the huge third down catch! Also, I HAVE TV AGAIN!

  • Ben Nielsen

    Josey is decent at football.

  • KYChiefsFan

    Need you to step up one more time D

  • Ben Nielsen

    No idea how Chelf completed that pass.

  • Ben Nielsen

    These officials have no idea what a catch looks like.

  • Ben Nielsen

    That’s not a catch, by the way.

    • Joel Wagler

      Nope

  • Joel Wagler

    I’m not sure Missouri could stop KU’s offense…

    • Ben Nielsen

      Hard to stop anyone when you’ve been out there 16 different times.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Chelf is going to throw a pick.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Game.

  • Joel Wagler

    Wow! What an ending. MU has come up with big turnovers all season.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Gus Johnson tho… Killed this game.

  • Ben Nielsen

    Great win for Mizzou. Should be big for them heading into the winter recruiting season.
