Darn it. When I saw that you had posted I was hoping you were throwing in fftoday t-shirts.

In order to fill this thing up, I will take a second team if thats acceptable. I hate Michigan, but it work in Ann Arbor so it will be easy for me to send out a hat when the time arrives.

I will be hoping to pay this one off after the first round.

yeah should be fine, but if someone else would actually want them you might defer to them.

Looks like Arizona is gonna make it. They are a scrappy team, Could do some damage.

At any rate, I have a fitted Arizona cap that I wear turtle style sometimes, and another one that was gifted to me, that I never wear, Adjustable. Looks like it's sun bleached ... comes like that new. I've worn it like twice since I got it as a Christmas present.

So ... my first year in this challenge ... with a hat to spare .... and I still don't know why you would want a hat from a school you didn't go to but ... Ok, I'm in.

Nobody wants a hat you've worn. If I lose and owe someone a hat, I'm going to let them pick one from a Purdue apparel website. You even mess this up. If purdue would play arizona and purdue should win....keep your used, sun bleached hat, but if arizona should win, well I have a slightly used purdue hat for you.

Haha. I know right! Get a clue GFIAFP. You're supposed to let the guy pick out a hat under 25$ from lids or the team store. This isn't the NIT used hat contest. That's another thread.

If Purdue gets through, Kansas will beat us and beat us like a drum. The only way is if Purdue is shooting lights out and Kansas has an off night. :cry:

I already have a Kansas hat from a couple years ago :pointstosky: and i dont wanna have to drive into the ghetto to get a UD hat. How about we pay off the bet with MLB hats? you win, i send a tigers (or Redwings, pistons or lions..your choice) hat out. I win, you send me a Royals hat?

As a KU fan that will speak no ill will of the Tigers (hey, I have three kids where someday it will be cheaper to pay in-state tui at MU than somewhere like KU) I must admit that all the garbage you MU fans have posted on facebook and everywhere else I have heard about it is about to make me gag.

You guys are all up on your mighty pedestal now that you won the Big 12 tourney on your way out, flippin the rest of the league the bird. Well as Doc Holiday's nemesis would say, "well, bye".

You guys are like what 4-15 against Bill Self. And have won the conference tourney what twice? Have you ever won the league regular season title since the league was formed? Yet now all of a sudden you guys are too good for us and expect for us to wish you well in your new endeavors.

meh, not gonna hurt my feelings if you guys don't make it to the sweet 16 :sleep:

Missouri's biggest positive: avoiding teams with athletic size until possibly the final four
Missouri's biggest negative: coaching inexperience (Frank Haith making his second tournament appearance. A major trend regarding teams that make the Final Four is whether their head coach has been to multiple tournaments, and whether he has made an elite eight for farther)

not really I'd never live that down if Mizzou beat KU to get their first ever NC. I'd rather MU continue to be the red-headed step-child of now the SEC as kentucky walks their dog year in and year out
