Sometimes the other team just has your number. Its going to happen this year.
Someone I read this week thought that Mizzou is ISU's worst matchup in the league- just not many good options.
Mizzou also had an excellent defensive plan- tall rangy guy on JVB, shadow on Scott, lots of ball pressure- it all added up.
Tonight's result only emphasizes how important winning the close ones is. But realize- we're still ahead of schedule.
