bobcats win 16-8 over missouri.

i feel for mizzou, as they are on a hell of a tough road trip. 9h drive to dallas on friday, play smu friday night, drive 4h to san marcos on saturday, play txst, play texas in austin today and then 12h drive home after going 0-3. that's just brutal.

initial thoughts after seeing the boys for the 1st time this year:

our faceoff guy is a beast. #33 blake weir. must have won 13 of the first 15 draws, many of them going forward and creating fast breaks. glad to see that our history of ballers at the x is still going strong. one of the mizzou parents was stunned, as they had apparently manhandled smu on faceoffs the day before. (file that away for the playoffs, as smu won't play us in the regular season)

the attack is legit. all slick ball handlers, catching passes that choked them up, making quick and accurate passes on the break, and finishing scoring opportunities. really liked what i saw out of a unit that was a weak link last year - i think they are the best unit overall on the team this year. #9 bryan wynne has a lightning quick release and had several goals that made you just shake your head.

mids have some real strong guys - noticeably bigger/stronger overall than recent years. #50 cody gould is a transfer from canisius (d1) and is just a bowling ball of power. he is a full on bull dodge guy and loves initiating contact. #41 adam jones is a guy whose game has grown into his frame and is now really confident w/ his power dodges as well. need to see more out of the group, and against better competition, as a whole to get an idea of how good they are as a unit, but really like the athleticism.

team defense doesn't appear to be as strong as the past couple of years, but the past couple of years were easily the best team defenses we've ever fielded, so that's a very high bar. definitely need some work playing off ball, covering cutters and understanding slide rules, but again, we've been spoiled with the level of play from that unit the past 3 yrs or so. individual, on-all defense looked really good, but mizzou isn't anywhere near as talented as texas, smu, tamu.

goalie aj anderson looked solid in cage, as expected for a 4yr starter. he still lets in the easy goal every now and then, and he's not as aggressive on the clears as i'd like, but that's a nitpick. overall, he's a hell of a goalie and runs his defense very well.

Great to hear. Haven't been too attentive on the board and was wondering how they were doing. Weir was a badass last year when I watched him kill OK at SMU stadium. I don't think he lost a faceoff.

Looked at SMU and their games so far and really odd that they've already lost to UT and OK. Must be a down year for them.

smu is hard to peg year to year as they haven't had any consistency at the hc position. had a bunch of talent last year, maybe got a little lucky, definitely work everything to their advantage (avoided playing us last season, and again this year).

texas definitely looks good this year, and ou doesn't look bad either. playing them the same week is going to be a big test.

Having Weir at faceoff is what kicked their arses last year. TXST is such a fun team to watch especially when they play schools that are in the Big 12. Those guys hate losing to us. I doubt I'll have time but might have to take a road trip this year.

Don't know anything about Kansas or if they are typically tough or not. Seems like the midwestern area would struggle but could be wrong. Good to get a win either way.

you can find any team, and any year for that team, here: http://mcla.us/teams

both nebraska and kansas are pretty bad programs, although kansas had a decent squad last year. we had to grab whatever games we could get because of our hc vacancy being filled so late.

Yeah I need to visit that place more often. Looked at a few of the teams and OU is rolling. Looked at LSU and Texas as well and both seem to have good teams this year.
