Texas A&M-Missouri Prediction

The last time Texas A&M and Missouri met, Texas A&M didn’t show up. The Aggies fell out of bed on the wrong side, then slipped on a banana peel when they tried to get off the floor, then walked to the bathroom and stepped on a cat’s tail, stumbled around, and hit the door frame, bounced back, knocked over a lamp on an adjacent lampstand, and then finally got into the bathroom only to find that the “on” switch didn’t work. This isn’t basketball analysis, you might be saying to yourself, but what A&M played in that 66-43 loss was not really anything close to what we know and recognize as “basketball.” The weird part of this is that A&M won at Alabama, pushed Kentucky in Rupp Arena, and almost knocked off Ole Miss on the road. A&M will be mad in this game, probably enough to get revenge. Texas A&M 68, Missouri 66. (Matt Zemek)
