1) Mizzou was "inevitable" (picked to win this game by 98.8 percent of ESPN bracket participants). Good precedent for Santorum.

2) Normal Missouri caucus-goers will be demoralized tomorrow. Only true believers will turn out. Good for Santorum.

3) Missouri loss bad for Obama's bracket, suggests vulnerability in the general election.

4) I had Mizzou going all the way. Will be last in TWS pool. Aura of infallibility shattered.
