Guys, the word you want is "rout".

"Route" is a road. "Rout" is a crushing battlefield engagement.

Also, less important: "From the Hawks’ only points in the game’s first 10 minutes coming from the free-throw line "

I was unaware that Monmouth's team was the Hawks - didn't see any other reference to it prior to this - so my first read through this was not clear at all who was being referenced.

I don't see what benefit you get from Missouri that you couldn't get from another program. If you're going to revive a series, make it Nebraska - the series there goes back to the 19th century. Or pick Colorado, so you can play near Denver on a regular basis. Or pick a school in California or Florida, to add a recruiting area and the appearance of a vacation to the schedule.

"Jackson scored 18 points in the victory, while KU sank six of 13 from long range, far better than its 0-for-8 first half that even included a Mason air ball." - Should probably reword this, sounds like KU shot 6 for 13 from 3's for the game; that's the second-half total.

There are 6 BCS conferences. SEC, Big-10 and Pac-12 have been adding teams and have no one looking to jump ship. The 4th would be either Big-12, ACC or Big East. Big East is losing all their good football schools, so they're out. Big-12 contract is much more impressive than the ACC's. If the Big-12 grabs Florida State they cement their spot as the eventual 4th superconference, should things continue in that direction.

I think this is the first time I've ever seen anyone use "reeked" as a compliment. Apparently Morningstar is a reeking rat.

WHAT? College students at KANSAS bought marijuana???

I'm surprised they had to go to overland park; when I was going to KU one of my roommates dealt pot.

Next I imagine we'll hear that some of them drink alcohol, too.

Torisen (David Hewitt) says...

Yep, I think this is probably a case of "KU is one of the top-10 worst road teams in college football!" and not that they're particularly good at home.

"The Jayhawks would need to beat the Tigers twice to advance to Sunday’s Big 12 Championship game." - is that a best-of-3 series, or is it that KU would need 2 consecutive wins and Missouri would need only 1?

DEFCON 5 is the lowest level, but a lot of movies and stuff get it wrong. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DEFCON

CBS said that Withey's 7 blocks were the most for a Final Four game, breaking a record of 6 set by Danny Manning.
