end of a championship

It's been a great year covering MU football (sorry gerry). In my first season at the Tribune, the Tigers went all the way to the Big XII Championship and were ranked #1 for the first time since 1960.

The last two games I covered KSU and OU:

Chase Daniel points to Martin Rucker while celebrating after the tandem hooked up for a 1-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter. Rucker and Daniel connected for two touchdowns in yesterday's 49-32 win over Kansas State.

Fox Sports Net sideline reporter Jim Knox crowd surfs in the Kansas State student section for the cameras during the fourth quarter.

The last remnants of the Kansas State student section chants "Beat KU!" as the Tigers leave the field after the game.

Freshman receiver Jeremy Maclin takes in the view of the Alamo Dome on November 30th. Maclin had 2,713 all-purpose yards, an NCAA record for freshmen.

Mizzou fans cheer in front of the Alamo for ESPN Game Day cameras.

University of Missouri junior Rob Grotha cheers on the Tigers during the first half Saturday at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

Missouri Coach Gary Pinkel wipes his face during the first half of the Big 12 Championship game. The Tigers and Sooners were tied 14-14 heading into the second half.

MU Quarterback Chase Daniel looks up at the scoreboard in the second half of Saturday's Big 12 Championship game.

Missouri's Jeremy Maclin rushes for 22 yards to the Oklahoma 25 for a 1ST down during the third quarter.

Marching Mizzou looks on as the Tigers fall further behind in the fourth quarter.

Stoic golden girls.

Chase Daniel is sacked during the Tigers last possession of the Big 12 Championship game Saturday.

Game Over.

I won't be covering the Cotton Bowl, so my 2007 Tigers season ends here. I hope 2008 is just as exciting.
