Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch does what the reporters who cover Mizzou sports for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch do best: focus on negativity. Why take the tremendous wins by CU and KSU over Oklahoma and Texas respectively and, instead of talking up the quality of the Big XII north, turn them into "why does Missouri coach Gary Pinkel suck?"
But that's what we expect out of the newspaper of negativity.
Update: Dave Matter has a more sensible take. He mentions the fact that Pinkel hasn't had the success over top 10 teams, but he isn't so negative about it.
